Extrafine Merino The Crew Olive
Extrafine Merino The Crew Olive
A warm lightweight Extrafine merino and silk blend jumper with stunning colors added to the neck trim, waistband and cuff. On the back of the jumper the MG Rivers signature is embroidered in a subtle but vivid color.
British design with super-soft 100% Italian yarn, made in Europe. Our Mills are sustainable and use green energy.
Olive green sits between the warm yellow and the darker green on the color wheel. Olive green evokes space, wisdom, and is also associated with harmony, diplomacy, and self-love. We think sunshine, life, vitality and also love the fact no-one looks bad in olive green! It suits every skin tone – it is a stunning color yet can be paired, with no contradiction, with absolutely anything in your wardrobe. This is why we have to launch with Olive Green being one of our favourites. The sunshine is echoed with the coupling of the Cote d’Azur sea blue – think sunshine, think life. Olive green can look strong in the office and chilled when out and about. Knitwear designed to create a lasting impression.
Happily this jumper looks amazing on women 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 ...
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.

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.

Meet The Designer
MG Rivers is a new British company creating stylish extra fine knit merino jumpers. British design with super-soft Italian yarn.
MG Rivers celebrates color and design. We felt menswear could benefit from an injection of new ideas, using color and style. MG Rivers have created a range of super-soft, extra fine knit, non itchy jumpers that add a slight twist to a classic. By taking a fresh look at the iconic cricket jumper and combining it with the strong heritage colors best shown in the ribbons of military medals a new 'future classic' has been created.
Flattering, comfortable and stunningly wearable in virtually any situation from the office to the pub, board meeting to rock concert.
We have sourced the best merino and silk yarn available, which is spun in a an environmentally friendly, green mill in Italy. Our manufacturer is an old established British company with factories across Europe.
MG Rivers knitwear is designed to create a lasting impression, as wearable as your favourite T shirt but as stylish as your best sharp suit. This jumper looks amazing on women as well as a flattering ‘boyfriend jumper’.
We love margaritas, the 70’s, striking colors, the iconic v-neck and hope you will love our reincarnation of it too.
Striking yet sober jumpers….
