Sebago are established and well-known creators of collegiate kicks. But the Ivy League ambassadors also happen to make well crafted and thought out apparel, including all the necessary Americana supplements that harmonise the dockside yachting with the parkside picnics.
Take this heavy knitted Shetland wool jumper, for example. The timeless staple is an excellent addition to any wardrobe – whether you’re a sailor or not – that combines durability with comfort. The cable-knit sweater is named after the Flemish knot, one of the strongest and simplest ways to join two ropes, and something you should absolutely practice when you’re sitting around a fire, or enjoying a picnic, as the lovely Sebago team are doing in the campaign below.
Other staples include simple crewneck jumpers in bold colours, hoodie fleeces made of sherpa polyester and ripstop nylon, and the king of prep: a padded gilet. Sebago even scores bonus points for the perfect evening attire, a brown cinnamon corduroy blazer, which might as well function as a smoking jacket – just what is needed after a leisurely day in the outdoors or a surf up the Maine coastline.
All of this is on sale at Sebago’s site, where these bits of apparel are mixed in with Sebago’s usual boat shoe suspects.
