THE MYTHICAL MENAGERIE OF MENSWEAR (PART III)
Posted on February 6, 2013
“I grin at thee thou grinning whale!”
~ Moby Dick by Herman Melville
This quirky Slim-Fit Whale Intarsia Cashmere Sweater by Thom Browne is the latest addition to my Mythical Menagerie of Menswear. Ok so it’s not exactly a “Mythical” creature, but I’m taking a leaf out of Brittany Pierce’s book, (being unemployed means I’ve been watching far too much Glee), letting my imagination run wild, and going for the whole “Moby Dick – white devil of the sea” angle or even Monstro from Disney’s Pinocchio, (yes, I’m reaching).
Moving on, this luxury piece of navy knitwear has its scottish manufacturing roots firmly emblazoned on the chest in the form of a cute little plaid whale that likes to destroy boats and bite off legs.
Check out how I would style and wear this wonderful piece from Mr Porter here.
A tad 90s looking but I do love my brights! I’d easily swap the green jeans for a black pair for the winter months!
