Italian term or phrase: coste marina
Again from a simple list of materials used for men's casual wear. The only context is: "COSTE MARINA DI COTONE INVERNALE". Obviously it is a rib of some kind, but I'm not sure what the equivalent term is in English.

Marine Rib

like a Navy (sailors) sweater rather than an Aran type (which is fisherman's rib). The other difference is that Fisherman's rib is in wool, NOT cotton
