Serious Fair Isle Sweaters

Wardrobe Staple

Do Fair Isle sweaters have an image problem? From a British perspective, the most famous wearers have not been what you would call trend-setters. Think Granville from Open all Hours or dear Frank Spencer. Not sure why the sweater has become part of the comedy dressing-up box, but we'd like to try and reclaim the sweater here at Tweed Towers and help to give it its proper due. To start with, just look at what Paul Weller can do with one. Looking good.

When you start adding in Hastings from Poirot, then the argument for a Fair Isle as a wardrobe staple seems beyond dispute.
