Navy Shawl Collar Sweater

The Life Aquatic

I love the idea of a cotton/wool sweater with a shawl collar. Martin + Osa and Land's End Canvas has some good options.

Martin + OsaAs some of you might have guessed by now, I'm totally obsessed with the U.S. Navy and Sailing gear. I fell in love with the Navy in 9th grade with my school's annual trip to Annapolis and I've been married to the Sea ever since. Well, after watching The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou this morning, I was reminded of how much I love the Sea as well as the clothing.


  1. Keep an eye peeled for a hands on preview of land's end canvas over at Sart Inc...shawl collars included...

  2. You'd both dig the Land's End Canvas pea coat I just waxed with 2 tins of Filsons bees wax. It changed the coat...

    Note on the fit: it's great. Nice a slim.

    Wish it was made stateside, but it's not.

    Great post Skip. I'm feeling navy this winter too.

  3. Bean used to have a great shawl collar sweater. They were still selling them this past summer at the bean store in Cherry Hill for under $50, but rumor is they no longer have them.
