A layering essential for the style-conscious man and a true wardrobe staple, the shawl neck style was a firm favourite with fashion icons, such as Steve McQueen and Paul Newman and is still to this day one of our most popular cardigans for men.
The Cardigan highlights the Diamond stitch which was said to represent the stone wall fields of the Aran Islands as well as the fisherman’s nets of our ancestors. The ancient stitch was connected to the reward of hard work and labour on the islands, hence why it is often attributed to wealth. Its unique construction makes it an instantly recognisable pattern and one that is often sought to be replicated.

At Aran we lovingly bring our famous heritage patterned knitwear to the world. It’s what our previous generations did, it’s what we do and we love it. We certify every genuine Aran we create for authenticity, quality and craftsmanship.
Made In Ireland
We all need to care for our planet. Every Aran is always knit from 100% natural wool, resilient, renewable and degradable. At Aran we are inspired by our environment on the Wild Atlantic Coast of Ireland and continue to try hard to implement sustainable practices in everything we do.
Aran is knit using Aran stitches from lofty Aran yarn. 3 strands of spun wool are wound together to form the yarn, then knit using our traditional stitches to give Aran its unique quality, warmth and texture. Aran is built to give a lifetime of comfort.
Aran design and pattern gives our knitwear its distinctive and internationally famous look. Our traditional heritage stitches are inspired by celtic art and our island environment. Each stitch has a different meaning which reflects keys elements of our ancestors lives on Aran.
Please remember, wool is a natural fibre and has a strong element of flexibility. If your garment feels slightly small at first, give it a gentle stretch which will loosen the fibres in a way that will not damage the garment or cause it to lose its shape.
Where a specific size is available for a garment: To calculate the size sweater you require simply measure across the chest of your favourite sweater in inches and double that value.
