Classic styling and timeless pinstripes in comfy, natural fiber are a hit for working at home—and beyond. This midweight, saddle shoulder pullover or cardigan in ten sizes (XXS to L and 1X to 5X) will be a favorite for men and teen boys. Worked in portable pieces from hem to neck with V-neck or crew neck option, it is finished with seams and applied neck and button bands for a stable fit and durable shape that will last for years.
