Not sure. I stumbled across Heather Wallace by happenstance. However, it is Lockie's factory store, as confirmed by Allan Gilchrist, their sales director. In any event, it's my go-to for beater knitwear. I rarely buy new Scottish cashmere these days, but their Merino offerings are quite nice and VERY cost-effective.

I may email them and ask them--they definitely make a nice thick shawl collar (obviously, I have one) and am looking for another. You're right, it's very nice stuff, especially for the money.

cross post, seeking advice.

 

Any ideas on matching this shirt?  White/brown pinpoint oxford.  I'm having a little trouble putting a good outfit together.  Mostly odd jacket/trousers about half the time with tie.  Thanks guys.

 

NEW YORK SLIM FIT

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 cost is prohibitive for the Ben Silver.  And no navy blue.  I'll probably give the Orvis a shot.  Most of the bad reviews are about the buttons falling off which is an inexpensive fix.  One day it'll be the Drakes shawl neck!

I find it hilarious their smallest sweater is a 44 which basically means their knits are made for fat people.

It's a conservative Southern men's haberdashery...

Exactly this. That's just the way their target audience wears things. Besides, that sweater looks good a bit slouchy.

That target audience is wealthy Charlestonians, so not exactly the same as that comic...

Mi pops is a big Ben Silver fan (in CT not SC), and he definitely needs quite a bit bigger than a 44.

Southern, white, preferrably Christian, males; the one group that is socially acceptable to stereotype and pillory.

Nice. From the 'England' tab, is this made by SAB or one of the other old UK makers?

Thanks! I bought it in the hopes that it was by SAB as I've wanted one for awhile. I'm confident that it is, but umbrella ID is far from my specialty. It looks like the Malacca to me, though the canopy is cotton canvas rather than nylon.

I am envious of this. That looks damn good.
