Uncle Ralph’s Striped Sweater

Argyll and Sutherland

It is no secret that I have an affinity for regimental striped garments. It is also no secret that I enjoy a good sweater. So when I saw this Argyll and Sutherland inspired regimental sweater from Ralph Lauren it was love at first sight.

I am not alone in my admiration for a striped sweater. The moment I saw the Ralph Lauren Sweater I was reminded of this picture (see here) of American lawyer, diplomat, and soon to be subject of the United States Trad series (Past subjects include: George Bush, RFK, Ted Sorensen, and Daniel Patrick Moynihan) John Bolton. I am not sure that this sweater is the perfect striped sweater for me, but I definitely thought it was worth highlighting. I also wanted to give Uncle Ralph (word to Trip English) a shout out for keeping it logo free. We appreciate that Ralph.

    Nice post, Jerrod. I’m less a fan of the big stripe than the stripes that Brooks Brothers has produced over the years. I have one in A&S and another in their #1 stripe (burgundy merino). The one Bolton is wearing is more likely lambswool, which I struggle to find these days, and is imo the perfect stripe width.

    A close-up of the Regimental ASH Pajamas from Derek Rose which are pretty awesome.
