knit still being crisp and wearable; only a few spots of discolouration..
The jumper is from the past local Eton hatter & outfitter E. C. Devereux; a retail store situated on the High Street and run by generations of Devereuxs. A name tag saying J. C. G. Vowler, 1924.
Eton College has a highly developed colour scheme for various sports at the school and judging from the coloured templates I would say that my jumper is from the Water Polo team.
A truly lovely jumper that I will wear with pride in the lukewarm Danish Summer;
today I am wearing my cream wool flannel cricket trousers from Fox Flannels; a collarless white shirt from Darcy Clothing; a red white dot cravat; and my white Doucal's shoes. On top of that my 1932 Cambridge Blue.
The jumper will also be a great match for a pair of cream shorts and tan shooting socks.

|A warm and comfortable jumper and Fox flannels - what is left to wish for?|
|The V-neck trimming is a tad more bulky than the other trimmings as it is applied on top of the wool knit rather than inter-woven|
|The jumper is in an excellent condition|
|Summer is a cream knit jumper and green grass|
