The only difference should be the tag.

That, and that Inverallan has been knitted in Scotland for decades (centuries?) and Strathtay is knitted at least partly in India- not exactly a country known for their warm Aran knits.

I remember this coming up earlier in the thread, but I don't remember seeing a confirmation.  Do we know for a fact that they're doing some knitting in India now?

That article is from 10 years ago.

That article's from 2003 and the Inverallans I bought last year are labelled "made in Scotland", so I can only assume the knitting was somehow pulled back onshore. (The Scotsman don't seem to have mentioned Inverallan since then.)

Unless you're thinking the jumpers are knitted offshore and assembled in Scotland to qualify for the label? Either way I wouldn't think that article points to a difference in methods or quality between recent Inverallan and new Strathtay (I don't have any first-hand experience of Strathtay).

Ok, I didn't notice the date on the article. It was posted in this thread a month or two ago.

So, back to my original question: has anyone compared the two side by side?

Where can you get a kanata sweater? I looked at some online and really liked the looks of them. What are they like in terms of quality and thickness?

 

Kanata's biggest market is Japan. The best way to get them is off of Rakuten (or maybe yahoo japan auctions). Some of the Rakuten shops will ship internationally for the others you will have to proxy.

 

Four Horsemen's sweaters were at some point made by Kanata, not sure whether that is still the case. In other years the FH ones were made by Granted, another canadian company that makes similar sweaters. THey actually have a webshop you can order from directly.

Damn. How much? I'm a little worried, mine comes in on Wednesday. My order was £145 before shipping.

Awesome, thanks. I'll look into it. Any word on the quality?

The polo bear sweater is coveted by a lot of 'lo heads though. And borderline Alden-thread obsessive "Americana" types.
