Whitby Fisherman Sweater
Whitby Fisherman Sweater
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters

In the northern British Isles, thick wool pullovers known as guernseys kept fishermen warm and dry during long runs at sea. Villages came to be known for particular knitting patterns like this one, originally named for the Yorkshire port of Whitby. Whitby sailors also worked fishing seasons in the Scottish port of Peterhead, and the style is sometimes called Buchanhaven after Peterhead’s small local fishing village. This classic nautical sweater is knit in Peterhead, Scotland, using virgin wool raised and spun in Yorkshire.

Portuguese Fisherman Sweater
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters

Men have been fishing the waters off the Lusitanian coast for millennia. The Romans built outposts across the region to supply their demand for garum, a traditional Portuguese fish sauce, and one of the most beautiful of these seaside villages is Nazaré. According to local lore, the Lady of Narazé—a black Madonna from the 4th century—protects the village that bears her name. While the Madonna may protect their boats from the rocky shoreline, it is Nazarene wives and mothers who protect their fisherman kin from the cold Atlantic waters with hand-knit sweaters. Knit in the classic Portuguese style—torcidos—these distinctive sweaters were originally made of inexpensive wool that would keep the fisherman warm even if he was drenched by the waves.

Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters

At the mouth of Galway Bay in western Ireland lie the three small islands that make up the Arans, Inishmore, Inishmaan, and Inishneer. The ocean pummels the islands’ sheer cliffs, creating a landscape that Aran knitwear historian Alice Starmore calls “not surreal but simply magical.” It’s in this remote region that the stitches of classic Aran sweaters were invented and evolved.
