This hearty forest green cardigan takes its inspiration from military-style Irish sweaters, often worn by volunteers who fought with the British in WWII. Although Ireland was neutral and relations with Britain were strained, thousands of men and women chose to join the Allied cause as members of the British Royal Army and Merchant Navy, or by working in British factories. Our contemporary version uses rich leather to enhance frequent wear points, ensuring years of rugged outdoor wear. Leather shoulders help keep expedition gear and luggage straps from slipping off. Front slash pockets add functionality and make this sweater an alternative to a jacket on milder winter days. Pure Irish wool, knit in Ireland. Men’s sizes M (38-40), L (42-44), XL (46-48).

Hand-wash or dry clean.

      I wear this sweater all the time. It's warm, fits very well and looks great, my wife tells me. The only drawback is that the zipper tag is small. Big fingers will fumble with it, but it's worth the minor fiddling. I would buy another one today if it came in more than one colour.

            I ordered this sweater on Dec. 17th but didn't receive it because you ran out of stock. I would dearly love to have it, so appeal to you to re-order this item. Since you ran out of stock I assume it was a very popular item. Thanks for your consideration.

              This sweater is excellent all round except for the very shallow side pockets which do not allow one to keep their hands warm. This I do not understand as I have had many sweaters of this type but never one with such small pockets. The small saving in material could not make up lost sales.

                  Comments about Irish Wool Military Cardigan:

                  I love this sweater! My wife got it for me for my 40th birthday (after it caught my eye in the winter catalog) and I couldn't be happier. I thought it would be nice, but it's REALLY nice. It fits perfectly (better than any sweater I've ever had) and is obviously of very high quality. I like it so much I plan to order a couple more sweaters from the catalog. It's a bit pricey, but ultimately... worth it, for how often I now plan to wear it! This will be my go-to Spring/Fall layering choice when the weather calls for a light jacket or sweater. I don't self-identify as "stylish" but this is somehow classic and rugged, while still being stylish and fashionable. Go figure...

                      In the early 1900s, enterprising women living on the Aran Islands took the sweaters they had knit for generations of fisherman kin and started marketing them around the world. Today the classic cable stitches of Aran knitters are a worldwide symbol of Irish culture. The wool blend features just enough cashmere to make this winter-white cardigan luxuriously soft to the touch.

                      Stay cozy indoors or out with this thigh-length Aran knit sweater. These iconic symbols of Ireland's northern Aran Islands are well known for their intricate stitches and symbolism. In this flattering cardigan, the honeycomb stitch symbolizes the hard work of the honeybee and the rewards of an industrious life. The cable stitch stands in for the fishing rope that was so essential to livelihood on the islands. Knit from 100% merino wool, with a button front.

                      The simple design of our zip-front sweater hides a 500-year history of wool textiles in Scotland. The unique material—felted lamb’s-wool that’s softer and cozier than synthetic fleece, but with all the advantages of natural wool—is made by Lochaven in the heart of Scotland’s traditional textile district of Stewarton. Our grey-trimmed, felted lamb’s-wool sweater is soft and naturally water-resistant, both wind-resistant and breathable.

                      This cozy merino wool sweater is a virtual sampler of Irish Aran knitting patterns. Each pattern symbolizes an aspect of local fishing culture: Celtic rope for Irish pride; fisherman's cable for safety on the waters; basket stitch for a plentiful catch; and diamond, the shape of a fishing net, for success. The warm wool is renowned for its extremely soft hand, providing warmth and comfort without the itch of lower-quality fibers.

                      For hundreds of years, women in the rural villages of the Aran Islands off the western coast of Ireland have knit natural wool sweaters for their fisherman kin. Although the myth that you can identify island families by the stiches in their sweater—like a Scottish tartan—isn't true, every knitter does have her own special patterns, passed down through generations of mothers and grandmothers. At weekly gatherings, they continually invented intricate new stitches.

                      Ireland's northernmost county is a land of peat bogs, sandy beaches, and windswept cliffs. In the shadow of the Blue Stack Mountains, the town of Donegal has been renowned for its handwoven wool sweaters for generations. Woven from wool that is flecked with the colors of Irish earth and sky, this comfortable sweater is hand-knit in blocks of tan and peat, charcoal and heather. Lightweight and insulating, wool is one of the most travel-friendly natural fabrics available and shrugs off Donegal's morning mist with ease. Hand-knit in Ireland.

                      In a contemporary twist on traditional Irish Aran knitting, our natural ivory cardigan has an asymmetrical wrap style with a single button that creates a cowl-like neck. The textured wool sweaters of the Aran Islands have become a worldwide symbol of Irish culture. The patchwork of different stitches speaks to the ingenuity of generations of knitters.

                      Part of standard-issue military wear during WWII, sweaters like this olive wool pullover were popular among servicemen for comfort, durability, and easy pullover warmth. The shawl-collar style buttons up to cut the cold just as it did onboard aircraft carriers in the '40s. Cotton twill canvas-reinforced elbows add durability. Imported.

                      Croagh Patrick, where Ireland's patron saint spent 40 days fasting, is the country's most famous pilgrimage site. On "Reek Sunday," the final Sunday in July, tens of thousands of pilgrims climb its 2,500-foot peak. Nestled at Croagh Patrick's feet is the picturesque town of Westport, with majestic mountains on one side and the wild Atlantic on the other. It is here that our worsted wool pullover is made. Its thick-knit collar is inviting on cold days, and the three-quarter buttoned neck allows for easy layering. The Celtic knot design is inspired by the 8th-century Book of Kells.

                      This double-knit, 420 gram-per-square-meter Merino wool cardigan is smooth on the inside and looped on the outside for superior warmth retention and incredible comfort. It’s a perfect outer layer for autumn days, and a great middle layer under a coat. It’s also the right length to cover longer tunics and T-shirts, so you can wear a midweight jacket without inner layers peeking out. And it covers your rear view with tights or leggings, too. Semi-fit with flatlock seams, lined hood, double-slider front zipper, and zippered handwarmer pockets.
