BROOKLYN TWEED - LEAGUE

€11,00
Availability: In stock (5)

Color blocking achieves stylish new heights in this sporty pullover. The front and back are worked in intarsia to achieve a faux-raglan effect; saddle-shoulder sleeves knit in a third color are set in. The subtlest of A-line shapes gives League a neat fit that still allows layering over collared shirts.
