Very few know which sweater is really hip this winter – because you can hardly tell. The Fad Column.
Winter sweaters aren’t exactly a shopping topic if, like me, you have a mother who loves to knit and an aunt who is absolutely crazy about knitting – and who is also very talented at knitting. One thing for now: my mother knits the most beautiful sweaters!! and my aunt!! But in addition, there are of course other winter jackets that are worth wearing for warmth and fashion reasons. One of them is experiencing a resurgence: Trojan.
If you think about it now: such a stuffy old man’s jacket! – This can happen at first sight. This happened to me too. One day my friend showed me a navy blue model and I wasn’t very excited. I had to think of a former geography teacher who wore such a jacket more often. But then Troy came to our house – the fleece was good, thin but coarse. And the jacket looked incredibly good: as if it was flexible in all situations.
Some also know Troyer under an Icelandic name, or sailor’s sweater. Sailors are said to have worn it in the past, but overall, a pair of pants makes a good work jacket: the collar is zippable and protects your neck and chest from the wind – if you get too hot, just unzip it. zip again.
So, ever since Troyer walked into our house, I’ve seen Troyer, or so it seems to me, everywhere: at the roommates, on the street, in every shop window. Made of thick dark blue wool, just like the original pants for technical use on the high seas. Or made of cotton, finely knitted. Casual with jeans or over a T-shirt. Or for women in winter, dressed in boots. I see the Troyer people on Instagram, in the ads, in the catalogue.
In these times troyer is a fashion statement for people who really don’t want to make a fashion statement. It’s kind of modern, but somehow no one knows about it, one way or another, most remember, like me, a former geography teacher who used a similar model. Troyer is incredibly practical and doesn’t look overly stylish. It’s classic. And who wouldn’t want to show off one of these?
Troyer is like a friend that keeps you warm and comfortable, but you can also use it on adventure trips or carry it around as an alternative to a jacket. By the way, in these days of January with twelve degrees Celsius, many people go out with coats and scarves open in their arms – Troyer is a good alternative to very warm coats and very thin cardigans. stop, ready, go.
In a QVC sales pitch, Troyer would likely be described as a “multi-skill” – “something you can use with everything and everyone”.
If I didn’t have so many good and beautiful winter sweaters at home, I would have bought such a good and versatile sweater a long time ago. Honestly, I’m about to do this anyway – please don’t tell my mom!!
