I tried it on before.. Didn't like it. The cowichans always look better online because of their thickness. When you are close up, it doesn't look as nice. In my opinion.

I really liked last year's cowichan featuring a bucking bronc on the back. This year's indigo aran cardigan is beautiful, but when I went to check it out at the Melrose shop I was shocked to learn it wasn't wool but cotton (or maybe a cotton-linen blend, can't recall). It lacks the taut springiness of a thick wool sweater. Instead it has that unpleasant flaccid weight that I associate with cotton sweaters. The deep indigo color really is something else though, and it's probably a better pick for SoCal weather.

This is the one I bought. I thought $189 for something handmade and NWT was a good deal!

I really like that vest, what are you pairing it with?

Btw almost everything is hand made, you'd be surprise how little is machine made.
What country was it made in?

Not sure how much interest there is for high end watches on here, but I thought I would throw it out there

We were lucky enough to receive the watch found in the link below. GQs watch pick.

http://www.gq.com/style/blogs/the-gq-eye/2012/01/watch-of-the-week-ralph-lauren-safari-rl67-chronograph.html

I believe, the movement is Jaeger Lecoultre. I believe, less than 50 were made. All but 6 are left. The others were presold. It's a very cool watch in person.

Let me know if you are interested or have anyone you might know that is a watch person.


Thanks,

Robert

Not a new cut. Just low straights.

Online descriptions are out of wack. Not sure where they come up with these names. That wash I think is a new wash called Bedford or Mississippi.

The best line from that GQ writeup for the $8,850 watch:

"Thinking about going on safari this year? Skip it and save for this, instead."

Very nice watch though, just a few hundred dollars out of my budget.
