Gyles & George Men's "I'm a Luxury" Sweater
Gyles & George created the original "I'm a Luxury" jumper in the early '80s in a range of colors. One of their sweaters on this design in a soft pink was famously worn by Princess Diana.
100% lambswool crewneck sweater, made with love in Portugal from the highest quality yarns. Dry clean only.
This sweater runs true to size.
Gyles & George is, according to Gyles himself, "British knitwear with a sense of humour, designed to make people smile."
In the early 1980s, Gyles Brandreth and George Hostler teamed up to create a range of original jumpers featuring bright colors, droll phrases, visual puns, and trompe l’oeil images. Over the years, the pair designed hundreds of individual “wit knits"" — many of which were worn by contemporary luminaries like Elton John and Diana, Princess of Wales, who popularized the now-iconic “I’m a Luxury” sweater — and produced four books featuring their charmingly cheeky and colorful patterns.
Today, the brand is sharing its beloved retro designs with a new generation. Its 100% lambswool and cotton sweaters and accessories feature the same designs that made the original jumpers so popular; now, over 40 years later, Gyles & George’s “joyful jumpers” are still making people smile."
