I got this sweater second hand from a friend of mine a few months ago. It's a light weight linen, so it will be perfect for layering this summer, and I love the red stripes. In fact, I loved almost everything about it (right down to the bold, way-to-state-the-obvious label). Everything but the buttons. They were white enamel on metal and were way to heavy. Luckily I had just enough of these vintage wooden buttons stashed away to make a replacement. Roll on summer.
