British brand Old Harry only does one thing; knitwear. Doing one thing perfectly was their aim when they launched this autumn, inspired by the British seaside.

Their first collection, for both men and women, is designed in Britain and made with 100% high quality cotton, perfect for those days that aren’t quite sub-zero enough for throwing on the alpaca and heading for the tube.

Attention to detail is given to each element of the design, including the coordinates of Old Harry’s namesake – the legendary pirate of Poole – featured on the nape of the sweater. Available in cream, navy, black, grey and dark grey, the first collection of unisex jumpers from the brand come in six different sizes, with the five-gauge fisherman’s knit adding to the simple, seaside-inspired feel.

With their love of knitwear originating from childhoods spent on the British seaside, the Old Harry team spent many happy days wrapped up warm in their parents’ old vintage jumpers. From coming in from a chilly swim in the sea or walking on the blustery cliff tops, a good quality jumper will always be a must-have, even when being by the seaside is but a dream.

Available now at oldharry.com priced £65.

Inspired by Old Harry’s seaside roots, we have pulled together four more of our favourite fisherman’s knitwear which is available now. Okay, no-one is going fishing in them so we were a little liberal with the brief, but just like Old Harry – these are as good at sea as they are in Battersea.
