There was no male costume on Fanø. The seaman was the cosmopolitan, who was inspired by the international fashion and he bought his clothing in faraway harbours. Seamen from Jutland’s west coast have always sailed across the North Sea to England and Scotland. And this is undoubtedly where they have bought themselves a hand knitted Fair Isle sweater!
This sweater is inspired by the sweater given to the Prince of Wales in 1921.
