Best Made in Scotland cashmere? - Page 3

post #31 of 74

Can you provide some instructions on how to go about the custom deal where they will make 4 sweaters for $1600?

 

I would be interested to do this -- but do not see how to engage this service... please help..   thanks!

Is anyone interested in splitting a order of mediums or smells (whatever size is appropriate for a 38r suit size)? I'd be interested in ordering this custom service. PM me if so and well figure out the details from the previous posters.

Bumping this thread in case anyone else is interested in a group buy from William Lockie for size 38 guys.

I wrote to Allan Gilchrist to get the details for a custom order. Turned out there might not be the need for one.

According to Gilchrist, men whose suit size is 38 should wear size 42 in William Lockie's sweaters. Even if you wanted to size down, both V-necks and crewnecks are available in size 40. (But not rollnecks.)

As mentioned in a previous post, William Lockie's sweaters are available at Heather Wallace.

Seems you can't get 4-ply which is a pity though.  There's only a tenner's difference between 1-ply and 2-ply as well.

Asianafro, i spoke to the same person and there is a MtM service with a 4 sweater minimum which would probably lead to a better fit in case you're interested.

Also I'd suggest a size 40 for a 38 jacket. Inis meain size small (40) fits me pretty well and I couldn't really imagine a slim fit going medium unless you have a veery large chest and your suits are from a brand with a more comfortable cut.

You're right, I didn't see the second page of their products.

I ordered a V-neck from the Heather Wallace web site in size 40 this week. Will see how it fits me. But yes, for roll necks I'd prefer a slimmer fit than 42, but I can get slim-fitting roll necks now from No Man Walks Alone, for example. There are only two colours to choose from, though.

Couple of ebay shops for those interested:

Also West Away are online http://www.westaway.co.uk/

Kathy has some nice stuff. She said she was closing her business soon, but I don't know if that's true. I was told this 8 months ago or something. Something like the Temple of Jawnz of eBay shops.

She has lots of stuff by Peter Scott. Measurements given are of the actual chest, not of your size, so be careful. If you can find something that fits, the values offered there are quite good.

I concur. I'm 38 jacket and bought a size 40 cable knit wool sweater from O'Connells.

Yes, the size 40 William Lockie V-neck fits me well. Too bad the roll necks at Heather Wallace start at 42.

Asian Afro is the shoulder line a bit dropped on the 40? I'm looking at the chirnside and the only fotos I found of people wearing that model gave the impression of a very conservatively styled garment (i.e shoulder seams that fall lower than the end of the clavicle and also that we're a bit long/droopy). I understand you ordered a different model but did you find this to be the case with the 40?

I found that Westaway & Westaway are quite accomodating in sourcing what a customer wants. If Lockie makes size 40 at all, W&W will help you to obtain it.

In general, W&W offer one of the best customer service I ever recieved -- in my whole life. Highly recommended.
