Like the central spines of tropical leaves, linear ridges rise above sloped angles bringing the organic to the structural in Haskins, a modern pullover for every body.

A comfortable dropped neckline complements the breadth of its classic set-in shoulder, making this an easy choice for layering over button-ups or collared shirts. Inscribed with panels of twisted knits and tidy cables on both the front and back, this pullover is an elevated addition to any workhorse wardrobe. This impressive design belies straightforward knitting techniques and wears well in Arbor’s 100% Targhee wool.
