We've had a bit of an obsession with Nordic knits in the office the last couple of weeks. Whether it be from Dale of Norway, Arne & Carlos or the tale of the muskox, they are on our mind and soon to be on our backs. The warm sweaters come in a wide variety of cuts, cardigans and crewnecks as well as an endless supply of patterns. South 2 West 8 gone with a fairly tame Nordic crewneck this fall, but its just right to easily work into our closet. The blend of navy, red and grey look great together and would go perfectly with chambray, khaki or lighter colors of denim. These ones aren't the original, but made in Japan and a very nice reference to work into the collection. South 2 West 8 is another brand in the Nepenthes family, so it's not unlikely that we could see it cross the Pacific however, this season it wasn't meant to be. Sizes only go up to medium and the price will run you just about $280.

This tweed field coat is one of the best looking casual sport coats you'll see this fall. Designed for duck and bird hunting, the warm wool is long wearing and soft to the touch. The collar, cuff and gun patch are lined with cotton velvet and the two layer body is supposed to be cozy and comfortable. I really like this brown version but I highly doubt the grey option is any worst. South 2 West 8 has put together probably their best collection to date this fall, this piece of outwear is one of many I would be happy to wear, unfortunately the distance between an available retailer and myself is quite big. It's worth browsing their website at the full collection in catalog format.
