Pringle sweaters

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Gentlemen, I have been looking for an online shop that sells Pringle sweaters for a long time - I finally found one: http://www.stewartsofstirling.co.uk (I am not affiliated with them) A standard lambswool sweater costs GBP 40.00 (USD 70.00). The only store in Zurich (where Iive) that sells Pringle lambswool sweaters charges CHF 180.00 (= USD 145.00) ... I will be saving a lot of money in the future.

One more thing: You can choose whether you want a Pringle logo on the sweater or not. I decided to go with no logo.

What's the appeal of a Pringle sweater? I'm curious about them, having seen them at Heathrow.

You can't buy online at that place anymore, I think you have to call them.

I ordered by email: IainWilson@stewartsofstirling.fsnet.co.uk gregory: Pringle produces high quality knitwear. They are world famous for their sweaters in cashmere, merino- and lambswool. The problem with many other brands is that they are rather baggy - Pringle, however, is perfect for medium-slim men.

Bluefly has had Pringle polos for some time and they fit just like the Bobby Jones variety; extra-sized, in other words. Jeff

This looks very promising. For years, I had a few Pringle "cool-wool flat weave" Marino wool v-necks. Wore them until they started falling apart, which took a while. Nobody in this country could tell me how to get another copy-- I had bought them at a department store on Piccadilly around 12 years ago. The main virtues were a slightly glossy finish to the wool (not fuzzy, in other words), and a little bit heavier weight than one often sees in Marino wool sweaters. Just right for holding their shape. It appears that the 72-pound number is a close cousin of that model.

Pringle is also avaialble at Saks, and Barneys I believe.

I read somewhere that all items in Pringle's golf lines have been made in the US and not Scotland. This could account for the "roomy" fit of the the polos in order to fit the body shape of the average U.S. consumer. The article I read also stated that Pringle was looking at bringing production back to Scotland in order to keep a tighter reign on quality control since it had been slipping over the years. I don't know if this has happened or not.

Pringle indeed makes (or made) very strange and roomy Polo shirts. Polo shirts are not what Pringle is famous for and I would not recommend buying them. The sweaters from Stewarts of Sterling are nor "roomy" fitting at all. I am slim and they fit me very well. Stewarts of Sterling All their products are made in Scotland.

Newtrane - do you know the practical difference between the hodgson collection and the lambswool. What about the worsted wool.

I haven't tried the worsted wool ranges yet so I cannot help you there. The hogson collection is made of very fine merino wool - these sweaters are rather light and look great over a dress shirt. The lambswool sweaters are warmer and I wear them in winter (recommended for the cooler days).

Bloomingdales now carries a good selection of Pringle.  I recently bought a navy polo that i love, great fit and just right in all the right places.  The sweaters are great albeit very pricey as they are usually cashmere or wool/silk.  The cardigan I have my eye on is $335 but hopefully my size will still be around when they go on sale at season's end. i just recently got a Pringle polo from UK in very pale pink with a diamond patter on the collar/button area that has the pringle lion very subtly printed on it that is fantastic.  First time i wore it I received tons of compliments which made me feel more at ease at wearing a pink-ish polo shirt (which is a first for me)

Pringle used to be available at many fine men's shops and tailors. I'm glad them seem to be making a come-back.
