My Grandad Cardigan

One of my favourite smells in the world is coal tar soap. My Grandad used to wash with it so when I hugged him I'd always catch a faint whiff. Today I can't pass a bar in the supermarket or chemist without going in for a quick sniff and all sorts of childhood memories come flooding back. I bought this cardigan because it reminded me of him too. The slightly rough knit, the woven leather buttons and pockets all scream my Grandad circa 1985.
