Officine Generale Axel Waffle Knit
God bless fishermen.
For blokes who spend lots of their time surrounded by water and some pungent smells, they don’t half inspire some nice clothing.
The latest fishy-inspired piece we’re reeling in is this waffle knit top from Officine Generale. It’s got the side-buttoning neck favoured by those fellow seafarers at Saint James, a beautiful merino wool and cashmere construction and ribbed collar, cuffs and hem.
Officine Generale is the work of Pierre Mahéo, who bases his work on his two grandfathers, one of whom was a tailor and the other of whom was an oysterman who sported gear just like this. A happy juxtaposition for all concerned.
