Will do...I'm trying decide on what measurements I like the most.

I don't think that FedEx will touch it. It will have to be UPS, which severely reduces the odds of it reaching you.

Pity it is not Fred Flintstone. That would send Mattypoo through the roof.

Two floors and a few rooms away from my office is a room full of moths with microchips implanted in the bodies and hooked up to their nervous systems. They can be steered remotely in flight.

I'll ask for a few to be sent your way.

In a few years, the technology will be developed enough to implant such devices into larger animials intermediate in size between insects and humans.

So, there is a chance that whnay.'s rage can be controlled. Yes, you have read it here first.

The investment needed? Vast. But the will to succeed? More vast.

Give me linen, cotton, shetland and lambswool over cashmere, thank you very much.

Is the issue one of durability? Warmth? Construction?

No, an issue of looks. I prefer non cashmere for its appearance.

OK, didn't get any relevant results though when searching for Polo Pheasant.

What's a good brand for a pullover cashmere sweater? No weird grandma style knitting and none of that shawl collar shit.

Higher-end Italian labels are the best option these days: Cucinelli, Loro Piana, Borrelli, Avon Celli, Piacenza, Colombo, Malo, Zegna etc.

I would say William Lockie, Hawick Cashmere, Scott & Charters, John Laing, but I am biased.

I notice that you mention Piacenza, I believe this is after me introducing the existence of this manufacturer for you, or did you knew about it earlier?

I knew the company. Until you posted your photos I didn't know they sold under their own label.

I have three Hawick cashmere sweaters that were hand me downs from Dad. Great sweaters. Old but look fantastic.
