It's like your classic varsity jacket - only less high school and more grown gentleman. The merino varsity is the perfect mid-range game between a sweater and a jacket. For most of the year it's warm enough to wear as outerwear, but in the colder months you can layer it like a cardigan under jackets and outerwear. This one is sporty, casual and elegant all at the same time - which means you can wear it virtually anywhere in comfort and style.
The merino varsity is part of our zero-waste knitwear collection; aka. the sustainable supply chain of the future. It's "3D knit" on-demand in Brooklyn New York, using a single piece of premium Italian merino yarn and state-of-the-art knitting technology. There are no seams; which creates a garment that is durable and supremely comfortable - and most importantly - there is absolutely no wasted material in production or inventory.
Wool is an all natural product that has been used for thousands of years because of it's many benefits for both the wearer and the planet. These include; thermo regulation, anti-odor, UV protection, moisture wicking, flame retardancy - and of course biodegradation and renewability.
Even with all the technology in the textile industry today, there isn't a fabric or yarn that comes close to the natural abilities of wool. The way it looks, how it feels, the way it drapes. With this one we've created a win/win; a sustainable garment that is also unmatched in terms of comfort and versatility.
“The quality of the fabric is amazing and it fits better than bespoke suits I’ve had made in England and NYC. I'm a AOS customer for life!"
"It's so refreshing to have actual experts reviewing my garments and listening to my feedback. The whole thing felt like a true bespoke experience."
"I just received my coat, suit and shirt. I am blown away! All three are 100X better in person than they are in the pictures. I just placed my next order :)"
