In Pavielle Garcia’s promotional photos for Donald Glover’s new album 03.15.20, the musician makes pancakes for his children and wife while wearing a relaxed green cardigan and gold Tiffany necklaces. While the oversized cashmere sweater, worn by Glover without a shirt, isn’t as immediately arresting as his jewelry, it’s actually one of the best knits available.

Made by Connolly, a British brand founded in 1878, the V-neck Art Cardi is made in Scotland from high-grade cashmere and features two patch pockets and five horn buttons. Designed with a slouchy fit, the sweater only comes in two sizes — S/M and L/XL — and retails for $802.

But, Connolly didn’t always specialize in knits. It started as a saddle and shoe business before supplying leather to automotive giants like Bentley, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Ferrari and Rolls Royce. In 2016, the brand opened a boutique in London offering a luxurious collection of tailored garments, knitwear and leather goods.
