The Submariners

The Submariner jumper has to be the most iconic pullover of all time. 
Introduced during the First World War by the admiralty for sailors transiting the high seas, particularly on-board submarines operating in the North Sea. it’s not changed in over a hundred years, but why? 

Its ridiculously comfortable! Really thick Merino wool, and a roll up neck makes you feel like your enveloped in a blanket of warmth, with no gaps for the chill to get in. They’re made to last as well, the wool is treated in a way that prevents any shrinkage from the wash. Mine has gone in and out several times with no colour change, damage or shrinkage.

Whilst I was at sea with the marines, This warm jumper was my most prized possession, because it brought so much comfort in really harsh, testing environments.

I love wearing mine whilst next to a warm fire, with a massive pair of socks on during the winter months. Or during the summer months sat around a BBQ with my friends, when the sun dips below the horizon, or worn underneath my flying jacket whilst pottering along in an open cockpit Aeroplane. 
Whichever way you like to wear yours I can guarantee you’ll be really comfortable and it’ll last you for years.

Our images are professionally framed, and ready to hang. With 30 years experience, each image is presented in a responsibly sourced hard wood frame, with wood backing. All images are framed in a way that prevents warping, U.V. damage, Yellowing with age, or movement within the mount. Nylon cord, securely attached to the rear can be hung on solid, wall mounted fixings. Two felt protective pads are attached to both bottom corners to protect walls and the frame from marking or paint transfer.


To protect our prints from light damage and bleaching, we present them behind a layer of cast acrylic. A high quality material, it offers many benefits: including 92% optical clarity and 90% UV protection. What is more, as it is shatter-resistant, it is much safer than glass in your home or workplace, and reduces the likelihood of damage during shipping.
