Mens Vintage Jumpers

Sweaters were popular in the 60’s. They bridged the gap allowing men to be casual yet still neatly dressed. ​Younger generations began adopting sweaters from the lower class and redefining them as refined fashion garments.

Like many garments, the history of the jumper is mostly a functional one. The most famous historical wearers of jumpers were fishermen, who needed warm and hard-wearing garments to protect themselves from the elements. In the mid 19th century, the Royal British Navy adopted and still include the jumper as part of the uniform for various military members. Sweaters help dapper men transition between the seasons, add texture and layers to outfits, and stay warm in chilly environments.
