No other colour conveys as many contradictions as the colour black. Possibly why it’s the most loved colour in fashion. The colour black represents strength, seriousness, power and authority. Wearing black can look formal and elegant, evoking discipline, mystery and maybe prestige. We wear black as a simple, easy and strong default. It is a classic sexy colour. Makes you slimmer, chicer and never dates. “You can have any colour Sir, as long as it’s black” Henry Ford. This Obsidian Black is our strongest jumper - adding a touch of originality and style to the classic look. Knitwear designed to create a lasting impression from the office to the pub, board meeting to rock concert.
Happily this jumper looks amazing, If not better, on women as well as a flattering ‘boyfriend jumper’. Perfect for times you want comfort but to still look chic.
Our jumpers are designed to flatter yet forgive. As the knit material is so thin it really is flattering!
Sober yet Striking jumpers …
Hand wash in cool water using non biological, bleach free detergent, squeeze gently and do not soak too long
Turn the garment inside out to protect the outer surface
Dry flat, in natural air away from heat
Re-shape and iron whilst still damp. Lightly iron on a cool setting to keep the yarn super soft.
Or specialist dry cleaning
Hand washing your jumper
Washing by hand is highly recommended for your Merino and Silk blend jumper.
Turn your garments inside-out, hand wash using cool water.
Avoid soaking for too long, a few minutes to help loosen the dirt before gently squeezing and rinsing, first with cool water.
Drying your jumper
Pre-dry your jumper by gently rolling it in a towel – never wring.
Reshape the garment while damp, especially the V and dry flat not on direct heat.
Ironing your jumper
Occasionally it may be good to iron your jumper to keep the fibres in good condition.
Bizarrely low heat ironing makes the jumper super soft by helping the fibres smooth down and go back to the soft state they were when you first bought the jumper. Iron lightly when the jumper is still damp, with a finishing cloth in between and hold the iron on a low setting possible & ideally without steam so you do not ruin the fibres. If dry ironing, use a slightly damp cloth in between to avoid glazing.
Obviously, avoid the rib and cuffs.
Please select a specialist dry-cleaners
The jumper is fitted. Our jumpers are made to flatter yet forgive.
For The Men:
For a slim fit buy your size. For a loser fit buy a size bigger.
If you are slim with longer arms you should be able to buy your size without having to go up a size.
Don’t worry the arms will not look too long for the rest.
For the 'Boyfriend' Look:
The jumper is to be loose fitted, ‘boyfriend’ jumper style.
As the knit material is so thin it really is flattering!
If you are 8,10 and want fitted buy XS. For a looser fit buy S.
If you are 12,14 – the S is likely to still be generous, albeit if you are taller and want bigger try M.
Model here is size 8/10 and wearing XS
