The roll neck jumper has been the knit of choice, for many menswear style icons, over the course of countless generations. As well as being attributed to motor racing drivers, who quickly adapted the pullover as part of their racewear attire, during the humble beginnings of motorsport.

Often worn by professional racers to serve as a base layer beneath a jacket, gilet or full race suit. This knitted roll neck, draws on inspiration from outfits as worn by drivers during the ‘classic days’ of grand prix racing.

This particular roll neck jumper, has been specifically styled and modelled upon the era of Brooklands sportscar championships and the Vanderbilt Cup, when these types of garments were traditionally made from wool, flannel and tweed.

Knitted in Nottinghamshire on 5gg plain stitch, this sweater encompasses five ends of 2/30’s extra fine Merino wool, which is twisted into one singular strand, producing a plump and lofty yarn with light weight and a soft luxe handle. While the ribbed roll neck collar ensures maximum comfort and warmth.

Styled with a field jacket for a warming and seasonal look, or under a tweed blazer for sophisticated winter layering, due to the jumpers close body fit. The roll neck jumper can equally be worn on its own, for a casual and elegant weekend appearance.
