The inspiration for the name, Vesper, is two-fold: a delicious cocktail and the name of the evening star, which is fitting for this collection. Josh wanted all of the pieces in the Adventurer Collection to evoke memories of time spent with friends. This particular design takes us back to cool fall days, picnics in the park, and having a drink (or two!) while playing games with his friends.
There are a few neat design elements to show off your pride for your school, favorite sports team, or maybe a trendy color that’s happening now. In particular the collar and cuffs include a varsity stripe, which is the perfect place to add any pop of color you so choose.
Vesper is knit flat in pieces and seamed.
