Winter's around the corner, so maybe you jet-setters should consider to add some apres-ski wearing to your wardrobes. Fusalp are French suppliers of such niceties since the 50s and in fact some of their merino jumpers give a nod to that era, a pity the prices are also jet-set fare:








Wonderful!  ::)

There’s a quote I read which I’m probably butchering but it went something like “suits were once the province of stiff starchy faceless company men but these days as people dress ever more casually, wearing a suit has become so revolutionary as to be an act of rebellion”

Good quote , Rodders. .

It reminds me when Miles Davis and other aware black jazz musicians began to adopt in the late 50s the more characteristic elements of the Ivy look to épater les bourgeois (the WASP elite in their case). A revolt in cool.

Gorgeous jumper but why so expensive ??

I like that jumper regarding fabric, colour and arm stripes, but it's not just the price, shape seems a bit odd, like one of those oversized numbers that are the rage (high street trends are progressively dumber, btw)
