If you were a skater in the 90s, but are now a middle-aged father with three kids and an office job, you don’t have to let go of your youth forever. Get back to the days of Weezer and Sublime with Z Zegna’s Hydrorepellent Cotton Pullover. Can’t you hear the ska music already?

Knit from breathable cotton yarn into a crew-neck profile, this color-block sweater features old school stripes across the sleeves and chest. The throwback look is updated with a snap placket at the left shoulder for easy on-and-off transition.

The kicker: the sweater comes with a water-resistant finish that helps the yarn repel stains and moisture. You know how you spray your shoes to keep them protected from the elements? Same idea, only way more technical. The water-repellent coating doesn’t affect the look and feel of the garment, but comes in handy for those times when you’re unexpectedly caught in the rain without an umbrella.

Designed with the modern urban professional in mind, and crafted with Zegna’s century-old tradition of fine tailoring and attention to detail, this retro-inspired sweater is an updated look for those of us who don’t want to leave our youth behind. Wear it with straight leg jeans and fashion sneakers, or take it to the office with a pair of casual pants, collared shirt and oxfords.
