Kentwool Continues Expansion with Launch of the Henry Sweater Vest
Makers of the “World’s Best Golf Sock” Unveils The World’s Most Comfortable Kentwool Sweater Vest
KENTWOOL, maker of the “World’s Best Golf Sock,” announced today that it has begun offering its unparalleled, luxurious Merino wool comfort and performance in a new line of men’s sweater vests. By combining the technological advantages of 3-D knitting with the performance of superfine Merino wool, KENTWOOL’s new Henry Vest redefines the sweater vest. 3-D knitting is a new technique that creates shaped knitted panels, cutting down on waste while also eliminating seams in the garment. The result is a better fitting vest and enhanced mobility on the course.
The Henry Vest is constructed of Supersoft 19.5 micron Merino wool for an unrivaled hand-feel. Utilizing a 3-ply yarn for greater weight, durability and resistance to pilling the Henry offers golfers incredible versatility. In addition, the Henry provides shifted side seams for reduced motion restriction, an added benefit on or off the course. The garment’s comfort-enhancing features are finished off with Pointelle mesh side panels for maximum breathability.
“We like to think of the Henry as your new, old favorite,” said Dan Murphy, president at KENTWOOL. “The Henry does a wonderful job of integrating all the traditional things golfers love about a sweater vest. With a modern look, superior comfort and incredible performance, it’s the best performing vest you’ll ever wear.”
KENTWOOL’s new Henry vest comes in Black, Charcoal, KENT Blue, Light Grey and Navy color options and is available in sizes M-XXL. The Henry Vest features a retail price of $160 and is available for purchase now at http://shop.kentwool.com/Sweater-Vests.
