White Mountaineering seem to have their Faire Isle incorporation down this fall. We saw the lovely socks from Simon and now the cardigan with the same pattern has my attention. While I actually prefer the lighter colored version, the navy and red does work really well and would meld nicely with chambray or a heavy oxford shirt. Browsing the White Mountaineering website again I am continually impressed by each piece. It's really strong and while their choice of models is questionable, the clothing itself is strong enough to look past their men of choice. When it comes to Faire Isle patterns, I probably do like the best on a cardigan or vest. They are best layered within an outfit and when the top portion is blocked in a solid color, it is even nicer. The knit isn't available around here but if you are in Japan, tracking it down for the suggested retail price of $250 would likely be worth the effort.
