We’re always on the lookout for sweaters that raise the style bar. We want warm, we want stylish, we want cashmere. Jos. A. Bank has just the layer we want: a classic, cable-knit crewneck at an irresistible price.

Fisherman sweaters have a storied history. They hail from the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland, and each stitch tells a story of the knitter and the wearer. As the tradition goes, fisherwomen knit these sweaters to give to their husbands, helping to keep them warm while fishing on the cold seas – and helping to identify them if their boat ever capsized.

Finely knit in luxuriously soft cashmere, this modern update from Jos. A. Bank’s Reserve Collection features a rich, textural mix of stitches: cables on the front and sleeves, honeycomb down the front and back. The palette is versatile – choose from brown, grey, navy or burgundy. The fit is updated too: slim but generous enough to layer over a tee or sportshirt.

There’s plenty of sweater weather left so you can wear this cashmere classic a lot, whether to the office, or at home relaxing on the weekends. It’s so comfortable, your wife or girlfriend will want to borrow it too (we’ll never tell).
