Emmy has studied photos of hundreds of vintage vests to come up with the most flattering and feminine design! The result is a garment with a long 1920’s inspired torso that looks just as good worn on top of skirts and pants as it does tucked in.
No matter how you wear it, the dense knit will keep your lower back warm and toasty. The curved V-neck is carefully thought out to be the perfect shape and depth to flatter all body shapes and to be compatible with most shirts and blouses. Why not take it one step further by wearing it with a tie or bowtie? The color combinations are also very thoughtfully planned to be the perfect mix of harmonic and playful and to match to as much as possible of your existing wardrobe! The colorful knit patterns from the tiny Fair Isle in Northern Scotland has inspired crafty knitters all over the world for decades and began its popularity when the notorious Prince of Wales sported a traditional sweater vest like this in the early 1920’s. Since then, the knitting technique has been ever so popular for classic leisurewear for the Autumn and Winter season for men as well as women. The material used for this garment is used for most Emmys knits, both in Winter and Summertime. The yarn is in 100 % merino wool in the highest possible quality. Wool's inherent breathability and moisture-wicking properties help regulate body temperature, keeping you cool in the Summer and warm in the Winter. The breathability of wool doesn’t feel clammy when you sweat and prevents you from overheating. Wool also stays fresh long, cutting down on washes. Let it air out between wears and when it eventually needs washing just follow the advice on the care label to use mild wool detergent and machine wash it at wool settings or by hand. Wool is infamously itchy, but we use only the softest fibers and the softness is even further enhanced by a softening treatment. As a new customer, you will get pleasantly surprised by the extreme softness of Emmys knitwear. Furthermore, wool is very durable and will last a lifetime if cared for properly. In other words, investing in an emmy garment in pure wool is money well spent!
