Friday Favourite 5

This is a little bit special – a reworking of the traditional Icelandic yoke sweater. This piece is by Tom Ford and although the style is not radical it’s the colours that give it a point of difference – for a man’s sweater they are fab, the pinks are quite dusty rather than sugary. We are not sure what the yarn is but would hazard a guess at top end luxury cashmere (that’s Wendy’s guess, Belinda thinks it’s more of an aran-weight merino). The colour combination is just the right side of masculine, shown here with tailored trousers but would look equally great with a pair of skinny jeans and trainers. As we say each week… enjoy.

Its lovely! I’m undecided as to the yarn, but I am leaning towards cashmere as the fabric appears to have a bit of a halo. But I’m no expert and could be wrong!
