I have this strong theory that most women aren’t fans of fair isle sweaters on guys. I bet if there’s a study that kept data on the percentage a guy will get blown off hitting on a girl while wearing a fair isle sweater, the numbers will reveal a high rejection percentage. Probably a 20% success rate on actually getting her number. Nevertheless, you wear sweaters because they’re warm and cozy, but we also think this fair isle version from Jamieson’s ups your style a bit. As for a quick history lesson, Jamieson’s have been knitting products like this one on the Shetland Isles since the 1890s. Definitely hand woven too. So if you’re up for a challenge, rock this great sweater while trying to open up that girl at the bar. Your chances of closing the deal might be low, but your self assurance and style confidence will definitely be high.
