Classic on classic on classic: A retro cropped, boxy shape keeps the lines of the Houndstooth and a Half Jacket clean and simple—all the better to show off an unusual chunky-weight bouclé and an oversized houndstooth pattern. Loops of alpaca and wool and colorwork floats add up to surprisingly light warmth.
