Toad & Co. Cabriolet Sweater: Perfect for those who actually do stuff


Toad and Co Cabriolet

This shows you how the cowl neck buttons to the sweater. When attached, you can’t see the buttons and it looks like the cowl is part of the sweater.

Is this you: You put on a cute sweater and head to work. Mid-way through the day when the sun shines in your office or you go for a walk break you start overheating; or maybe you’re of an age where sometimes you just get really hot for no reason. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a way to cool down without having to resort to the undershirt look?

You need the Toad & Co Cabriolet Sweater. It’s a super-cute sweater with a cowl neck, which is attached with buttons. Buttons you can unfasten to take the cowl neck off. It’s amazing: instant air conditioning.

This is just one of a ton of cute sweaters they have – and a bunch of them (including the Cabriolet) are on clearance. This sweater (which comes in three colors) is currently $89.40, down from $149. It’s made of Merino wool and is so soft – just make sure you follow the washing instructions so you don’t shrink it.

One of the reasons I love Toad & Co’s gear is that it’s designed to fit a more athletic build. I’m about 5’8″ and 150 lb, with fairly wide shoulders, and the size M fit me comfortably. Another reason is that the company sources their materials from sustainable suppliers that adhere to a very specific set of guidelines to ensure there are no toxic dyes or chemicals used in their production.

Toad & Co’s style is built on clothing that is made to fit well, using understated details that won’t go out of style for a long time (if ever). Take a look at everything they have to offer (they sell men’s clothing, as well) and stock up with well-made classics to suit your active life.

We started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. We also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support local race organizers.
