Sweater Stalking

Fair isle Walking up Madison Avenue I spied this woman in an enviable Fair Isle sweater and snapped her pic. I may have to break my ‘no vintage’ rule to find one as good as this.

  • Hello, Brora have a lovely Icelandic mohair sweater this autumn. But the one you have pictured is splendid. You have such great posts. Sue

  • Just curious what the cut off is between an item being “old” and an item being “vintage.” If I have a hand knit sweater from Ireland that I got in 1984, is that old or vintage?

  • Oh, hate to say it, but for me they are one step removed from Christmas sweaters which I would never wear.

  • It looks very much like the gray J. Brand Fair Isle, which I actually like a bit better as it has a gray band at the bottom rather than ivory. The only “vintage” item in my closet is a Fair Isle sweater which I bought two years ago.

  • I bought the J. Brand Fair Isle sweater, softest, coziest sweater I own.

  • This just screams Eagles Eye to me! So cute but had so many EE way back when – love the J Brand!

  • I love looking at other women in these jumpers but don’t think I could ever wear one again. I was just too prepped out in hs! 70s Connecticut, what can you do.

    I do have my dad’s Norwegian ski sweater from the 50s though. I’ll have to see what kind of shape it’s in.
