When we spoke to Mr Greg Chait about why he launched The Elder Statesman he explained, "everything was a bit light and feminine for my taste. I wanted something that was rustic and utilitarian but luxurious at the same time." This sweater, knitted from soft, but robust yarns, is in no danger of falling into the former camp. The heavy gauge, chunky ribbed trims and deep camel hue will complement dark denim. Shown here with Stella McCartney jeans, Maison Margiela shirt, Maison Margiela sneakers.
