Available only from Hammacher Schlemmer, this is the sweater based on the one worn by Tom Crean—the Antarctic explorer who was awarded the Albert Medal for Lifesaving. Although wildly respected by his peers such as Scott and Shackleton, this unsung hero's most noteworthy escapade was the rescue of his comrades Teddy Evans and William Lashley. Through blustery snow and polar conditions, Crean pulled the two men 65 miles on a sledge and then hiked solo for 18-hours with little rations to find help. Made in Ireland, the pull-over sweater is knitted from warm Merino wool and features a turtleneck as well as ribbed cuffs, collar, and waist. Imported. Black/White. Sizes S-XXL.

Place one end of the tape measure at the center of the fullest part your chest. Wrap it around your body (including shoulder blades), keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
Measure around your waist where your pants sit, keeping one finger between the tape and your body to ensure an accurate fit. Think of the tape as a belt for these purposes.
The easiest way to do this is to measure pants that fit you well. Lay them flat, with the front and back creased smooth. Measure along the inseam from crotch to bottom of leg hem.
Relax your arm at your side and slightly bend. Measure straight from your shoulder, down to where your cuff would be.
The easiest way to do this is to find a shirt with a collar that fits you well. Lay the collar flat. Measure from center of collar button to far end of opposite button hole.
HEAD (use for hats and caps)
Measure around the largest part of the head, with tape above brow. Keep the measuring tape around your head at the point at which your hat normally rides (approximately 1” above your ear).
HAND (use for gloves and mittens)
Measure all the way around the widest part of knuckles with your hand flat (excluding the thumb). The number of inches equals glove size.
