Are you a dog walker living in an area where Jack Frost nips at your nose, or is there one on your holiday gift list? If so have I a suggestion.
Each morning I am awoken by my 4 legged friends at precisely the same time and taken for a walk. Lately, the mornings have been cool (read cold and windy) so I've worn several light layers to keep warm and still have mobility. Nothing I tried worked well on windy days.
Perhaps you've seen the J. Peterman winter/holiday catalog. Tucked near the back is item 1149 U.S. Navy Sweater. "Our navy sweater is made by the same company that supplies the U.S. Navy. 100% Navy wool, mothproofed. Ribbed Cuffs, jersey body, cover stitched seams, low (2.25 inch) turtleneck Rugged, warm, close fitting...)color: midnight black $69
The Navy knows from keeping the wind out.
I fell in love instantly and knew once again the military had come to a civilians rescue, but I was too cheap to pop for Peterman's tariff. A military item ought to be at an Army surplus store shouldn't it? Turns out sweater, men's, wool was harder to find than I expected. Once I learned to ask the right questions the answer appeared. The Navy Deck Sweater is available at Army Navy Sales. $30. and is just as Peterman says it is.
Comes in the original Department of Defense Supply bag. I realize it's hard to get excited over another black mock turtle sweater, but this is the bees knees. Buy it large you're likely to shrink it.
