Goffin Jumper





Drawing inspiration from the Norfolk fishermen’s Gansey jumpers of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Goffin is a neat fitting menswear jumper. The fisherman’s rib detail along the raglan shoulder, continuing along the underarm and side seams. And obviously, finished with a neat rib at the cuffs and neck trim to keep out the cold.

Borrowing its name from George Larner “Cazey” Goffin, a grocer and knitter from Winterton. Who was related to two fishing families; the Larners and the Goffins.

The younger fishermen sailed as far as Yorkshire, but regularly to Grimsby. Whereas, the older fishermen liked to stay closer to home. Casting the nets or crabbing pots off their little boats within sight of their homes.

This menswear style has neat proportions, measuring:

S/M 64 cm long by 54cm in wide, across the chest

M/L 66cm long by 57cm wide
