The Indulgent Shawl-Collar Cardigan
A sumptuous version of the shawl-collar cardigan, designed by Simon and Anderson & Sheppard, and made in Scotland from 12-ply cashmere.
A piece that had originally been sold by A&S, it was brought back into production by Simon as a collaboration, because he loved his so much.
Says Simon: "It might be the perfect thing to sit around at Christmas and receive presents in. I wear mine mostly around the home, but do also fasten it around the neck, stick on a watch cap, and use it to walk around to the shops or a café."
The cardigan has large, unpolished horn buttons - Simon's favourite - and a loop on the collar to allow it to be fastened at the neck.
Only available in a small run in dark navy and rich cream, it is also on display in the A&S Haberdashery in London, for those wishing to check their size.
"I’m wearing a Medium, and like this sizing on me: it’s loose but not sloppy, and still hugs the body when you do it up across the waist and chest," says Simon.
Simon is 6-foot tall with a 39-inch chest.
