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.

      Comments about Irish Wool Military Cardigan:

      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.

              Comments about Irish Wool Military Cardigan:

              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...

                      This sweater was worn throughout a cold Minnesota winter and was perfect for keeping the cold out. It fits well and is thick wool that will hold up well. A great alternative to a heavy coat.
