Great Jumpers of our Time #4 - Tom & Barbara Good

Good old Tom and Barbara Good from The Good Life.  I remember my Dad had a jumper just like this one. They were knitted in a stitch called Fisherman's Rib making them very chunky.  In those days men didn't seem to own many jumpers at all - they probably had one big thick jumper for the winter which had more often than not been knitted by their wives and a couple of the lightweight Pringle type V-necked jumpers (good old St Michael's in 100% lambswool) to slip over a shirt for cooler days and sometimes the V-Neck would be sleeveless a la Tank Top.
