Our most recent Four Horsemen Supplies offering is this varsity styled cardigan manufactured by Canada's very own Barbarian Rugby Wear. Many of you will remember the Barbarian name from your own time spent on the pitch. For those of you that don't, just know that the Ontario based company has been crafting some of the world's finest rugby shirts and shorts all the way back to 1981. Using only North American sourced cotton, Barbarian weaves, dyes, cuts and sews their fabrics all in their Kitchener facility.
When Barbarian approached us months ago they had several new products in the works, including this slimmed down cardigan. We loved that we could make a casual and wearable piece with the same indestructible quality as their performance gear. Like their shirts, this cardigan is made from Barbarian's unique twelve ounce jersey fabric which is manufactured on circular knitting machines. After being washed and dried fabrics are matched and then garments are cut and sewn by hand.
Our cardigan features a tonal sleeve embroidery and chest patch, as well as three gradient stripes on the left sleeve. These design details are a subtle nod towards traditional collegiate stylings and were custom woven and sourced specifically for this project. Limited to 18 pieces, the Four Horsemen Supplies Rugby Cardigan will be available for purchase in store and online tomorrow.
