Wow, amazing find. The 'machine knitting' section shows an example of the "Harry Potter turtleneck" and it's only "£ 52 (or dollar equivalent) in wool, and £65 (or dollar equivalent) in lambswool". That's custom made to your specifications. Very affordable. They will even use lambswool/alpaca blend (though no cashmere). I will definitely keep this in mind. Thanks for the link.
forget harry potter - give me that freddy krueger. i like a company that doesn't take itself too seriously. but man, what's with those models. those guys, with the hair... *shudder* it's creeping me out. /andrew - fears bad hair

you know, re. the original question of 'tailor made' knitwear, it appears not to be such an irrelevant notion after all. from the kilkee site's glossary of terminology:
Quote:
Cut & Sew knitwear: Automatic machines are at their most efficient when producing a length of knitted fabric, and not a shaped component. For this reason about 99% of commercially available knitwear is produced from lengths of knitted fabric which is then cut to shape and sewn together; hence the term "cut and sewn" knitwear.

UPDATE: Yesterday I have received one negative review of Kilkeel's quality from one very knowledgable person. If I remmember correctly, he wrote that knitting is loosy and handstitching is not very good. Andrey
