With literally dozens of shawl collar sweaters to choose from these days, what sets the Expedition Sweater from North Sea Clothing apart? Firstly, the design is based on sweaters issued to the Royal Navy during during the First and Second World Wars, so it has a much more authentic fit and appearance (in case that matters to you). Secondly, the new pure wool yarns that it’s made from still have their natural lanolin coating, which makes the sweater almost fully water repellent (you have to admit, that one’s pretty cool). And thirdly, each Expedition is lovingly handcrafted by a family firm in Nottinghamshire, England, and comes guaranteed to last (you can’t not like that one). Add all that up, and I’d say the difference is clear (clearly awesome!)(sorry).
