Absolutely, have fun at the StC trunk show. If you don't see a grail boot, there's a good chance you'll see a grail shoe.

The summer finally "broke" here in Florida yesterday. I was actually able to walk around downtown last night without sweating through everything. We're a long way from "colder" but "less hot" is better than nothing!.

+nice kops, I love that micro gingham!

At least you have the island breeze, right? I'm in central Florida where we get all the heat and humidity of the latitude but virtually none of the benefit of the coast (wind). I know, I know, the grass is always greener elsewhere and I should stop bitching and just move...

Also got this Orvis Submariner's sweater, but I sent it back because of the baggy fit around the shoulders and chest. (Shoulders were over 21 inches!)

Might reorder a small, but the fabric wasn't great either. Pilled a lot

Lovat Shawl–Collar Cardigan

 

 

I am thinking of purchasing this Orvis shawl collar.  The reviews and your account of your sweater not being great are giving me pause.  I tried on last seasons model in the store on 5th ave and the material is certainly rustic.

I am considering something almost identical made by Cruciani, but the price is giving me pause.

Depending on your size, check Ben Silver. They sell William Lockie sweaters just like that under their own name. Only problem is the smallest size they sell is a "Medium", which is a 44 IIRC.

I got one on sale a year or so ago for $100. It's highway robbery at that price.

I am curious about that Orvis one though. Looks good, disappointing to hear JRD's feedback.

The best price for Lockie is factory-direct. Their factory store is Heather Wallace.

Very interesting... I didn't know that.

Seems they don't sell a shawl collar there except for in camelhair, oddly. Wonder why that is.
