I’ve owned this gray Shaker-Knit sweater for more than 20 years. Who knows how old it really is because I purchased it second-hand. It has served me very well. It’s warm, comfortable and the neutral gray color makes it very versatile.
This weekend when I laundred it I noticed that a hole is developing in one of the elbows. I’m sad to see it nearing the end of it’s useful life. I could sew on Mr. Rogers style leather patches but I’m sure they would be more that I paid for the sweater in the first place.
My wardrobe is well stocked. I seldom even look at the clothing when I’m thrifting but now I’ll be on the lookout for a new(er) gray pull-over.
