avant-garde black distressed knit snap front cardigan

This unusual knit piece is a cross between a shirt and a cardigan - features snap front with a typical shirt collar, combined with a soft, stretchy cotton knit body. Detailing throughout includes double collar with additional appliqué, varying knit textures, 'shaggy' appliqué in back, signature ridges, color distressing, and fun pockets. The sleeves are extra long, widening toward the bottom - can be made shorter if desired. Comfortable and ultra-modern. Product code: R4826

Hand wash or dry clean.

General cleaning instructions for all garments (also see care tag inside the clothing) are as follows:

  • Any garment can be dry-cleaned with the gentle/delicates method.
  • Items marked 'hand wash' can be washed by hand (not in the gentle or hand-wash machine cycle), separately, as briefly as possible, with minimal amount of mild detergent, particularly for hand-painted items. Follow with the spin cycle of the washing machine, and finish in medium heat dryer, unless hang-drying is recommended, which is the case for most knits.
  • Hand-pressing is recommended on most items after the wash and dry to straighten out the seams and edges which tend to pucker or curl on natural fabrics.
  • Some hand-dyed items may leak a bit of color during the washing, that is normal and will not affect the item. Using liquid softener during the wash will minimize any color leaking.
