Le Tricoteur Guernseys:

 

These are traditional garments, manufactured to an exacting standard and designed for years of wear. The sizes shown below are actual garment size. These sweaters should be worn at least two inches larger than chest measurement. If you prefer a looser fit please order a larger size still.

 

 

Despite every effort to ensure consistency, the colours shown below may vary from the actual colour.

The classic Guernsey

The classic Guernsey

The knitting industry on Guernsey commenced in the early 16th century, when licences were granted by the Crown to import wool from England. Originally hand-knitted in one piece, the Guernsey sweater developed as a warm, hard-wearing garment for seamen. Although now machine-knitted, the tradition continues. The Guernseys we stock are made using the best English worsted wool, whose long fibres have been combed parallel to each other before spinning, reducing the likelihood of the surface fibres being disturbed by rubbing and giving a smooth surface and clear stitch definition. The main panels are machine-knitted but every garment is then finished by hand. The result is a strong, long-lasting garment that will hold its shape in both wearing and washing.

Important Sizing Information

Size exchanges can be a nuisance but can, hopefully, be avoided if you follow our sizing guidelines. If possible, select a similar style of knitwear or T-shirt which you currently wear and feel comfortable in, and measure across the chest, from underarm to underarm, as shown in the image at left. Double this measurement to arrive at the actual garment size. Then compare the measurement of your garment, in inches, to the ones shown on each product page.

Please do not confuse the measurements we show on each page with a person’s body measurement; the measurements listed are the actual dimensions of our knitwear and Breton shirts.

A size 44 Guernsey sweater, for example, will measure 44 inches all round, but this does not fit a 44 inch chest, it will be suitable for someone with a chest measurement of 40 or 42 inches.

Please do take the time to measure your own garments before you order, to prevent size exchanges. We keep our costs to a minimum, to offer the best possible price, and will have to pass on the cost of return postage for exchanged items.
