Sizing Guide

Do not bleach or tumble dry

Iron on a low heat setting.

The Submariner's sweater has been manufactured by us for many years for the British Royal Navy. With its roll neck, deep welt (hem) and cuffs and an internal reinforcement patch to the neck/shoulder seam, it is made to an original 70 year old specification. The Submariners sweater is made using a 3-fold 100% pure new British wool, especially treated to prevent shrinkage.

Living in a cold climate with long winters, in far northern Michigan, I have collected many sweaters over the years. This is one of the best: incredibly durable and well made. Merino submariner sweaters I've purchased don't stand up nearly as well as this one. The company provides excellent service. I especially appreciate that OK will automatically deduct the VAT at checkout for US sales - something that many retailers will not do. I'll be purchasing more OK sweaters. Buy one. You can't go wrong.


    Great service and quality

    I'm a sailor living in the United States, and I love these sweaters. The quality of the wool is fantastic -- these sweaters are harder-wearing than any synthetic fleece and much warmer to boot. I'm usually toasty-warm while my crewmates are shivering, and I get asked often where I bought mine.

    A note on the sizing: I'm 6'5'' and weigh 230 pounds, and the size L is perfect for me. The sleeve length is spot-on when unfolded. The sweater is quite long in the body, but that's normal: it's to keep your backside warm while bending over and working on deck. The sleeves and body can be folded back if a shorter length is desired.

    Finally, the customer service is excellent. It's fantastic to see that such quality still exists. Keep up the good work!

    Fantastic. A sweater to live and work in

    I bought this in navy a few months ago and it quickly became a favorite. Yes, it's warm. And snazzy. But I love the feel of the yarn and the weave. This isn't a pretty marino sweater: it's a sweater made to live and work in. The wool feels far heartier than any other sweater I've encountered, more so even than my shetlands. Worth every penny.



      Excellent quality shines through.

        Excellent! Have a black one and a white one. They fit well, and they wash well if the instructions are followed properly.


          A very special thing

          It is not hard to find a polo neck jumper but this one is very special indeed. Warm, stylish and well made. I am wearing if with a black reefer and it looks wonderful. My new favourite jumper. Very highly recommended.

          Great Service

          Delivered within 3 days of order being placed which was great. I bought exactly of the size chart which is perfect for me. Body length is long, by design, and arms generous which makes for a very easy to wear item. It is very warm, but not at all restrictive or tight. Wish I had bought one years ago.


            Paul Hurst

            Fantastic classic submariners sweater . Nice heavy jumper feels lovely to wear and super warm. Perfect fit from the size guide.
            Simply the best Sweater I've ever owned!
            I can see why the British Royal Navy uses these very sweaters.
            Well done Outdoor Knitwear great service and fabulous product.


              Unbeatable top quality

              As an Italian I must admit English fashion is on top both for quality & style. This is a great iconic sweater you can wear everywhere. High quality wool, very warm, unsurpassed style. Perfect with a RAF B3 shearling. I'm ready for cold northern Italy winters! I Will buy other products from O.K. for sure.


                Howard Kennerley

                I purchased this item after watching Dunkirk because Tom Hardys character wore it. The sweater arrived very quickly within a couple of days of ordering it and the quality is absolutely excellent, Cant wait to wear it with my bomber jacket in winter.


                  Beautiful Quality

                  A nice tight knit jumper, very warm and well made. This jumper made a good enough first impression, that after buying it, I bought 3 of their Woolly Pully jumpers too.


                    I love my Submariner's sweater

                    I was reluctant to trust the size chart but I did & I'm happy to say that it's pretty much spot on. I struggle to find tops big enough but the XXXL was just right for me. Not only British wool, the sweater's actually made here too which for me is an extra selling point. Delivery was quick - just a few days - although I didn't receive the tracking link for my package.
