This is an updated version of our classic Convoy sweater, made in a chunkier knit.
We had wanted to make this for some time, after we found an old 1940s pattern for this piece of knitwear.
This style of garment was originally hand knitted by wives, mothers and girlfriends for their men serving on the cold North Atlantic convoys during World War 2.
We hand knitted the first prototype to see what the fit and feel would be like.
Next, we altered its length to accommodate to lower jeans and trouser worn by today’s men.
The N.S.C. version features our signature longer ribbed waist and cuffs for extra warmth.
Inset arm for flattering shoulder fit.
Made in England with 100% British wool.
All sweaters come packaged in a 100% cotton drawstring branded bag.
Available in Navy, Ecru or Charcoal Grey
For a shawl collar, cable knit version, look at the Marine MK2.
