Knitwear for men has always been a bit of a touchy subject with me, mainly because ive always found that jumpers and sweaters tend to be at polar ends of the spectrum: Either too boring, or too OTT.

However, It was by chance that whilst doing my daily fashion spying I came across a jumper that made me sit bolt upright in my chair: A voluminous skull shaped jumper that Is more than just a jumper, It's art. Here It Is so that you can understand where I'm coming from...

Unfortunately, that Is the only picture I've been able to find of It. but I't was enough for me to delve a little deeper into the brand...

AWE. Utter f'ing awe. 

Sibling create what can only be described as cutting-edge, exciting and revolutionary knitwear. Sibling is like a 21st Century Kaffe Fassett, working against the grain and creating knitwear unlike anyone else out their.

Their tongue-in-cheek re-working of iconic imagery into their knits, as well as a modern approach to overall design Is catapulting Sibling to the forefront of the knitwear game.

It's not only the impressive design of the pieces that blew me away, but the attention to detail and technological know-how that's implemented...For example, the knitted 'biker jacket', made of LAMINATED wool, giving the look of leather! Ingenious.

I never imagined that knitwear could be this edgy, yet Sibling have hit the nail on the head...

Here are my favourite pieces from every collection to date, I think they reflect the ethos of the brand best.  Fun, contemporary and stylish!
