Simple comfort elevated by carefully chosen details will make this poncho vest a practical favorite. With a split hem and a cartridge rib collar wide enough to wear comfortably over button-downs, Kirwin is gently flattering and easy to style. The fabric is textured with a diagonal seeded pattern that changes direction on the bias. An exposed seam highlights the gracefully sloped shoulders, and I-cord edges create a neat, minimalist finish. Knit Kirwin in a classic neutral to go with everything you own or choose a pop of your signature color.
