    Who is making mixed-yarn or varied-gauge knits these days? @gdl203, @Synthese, @LA Guy?

    (I don't see a reason to spoiler these even if some may already be in the thread somewhere)

    Well, SNS Herning is doing some interesting stuff for FW16 (incidentally, we'll be doing a preorder with them). A 12 gauge knit cable is mixed with a 4 gauge yarn in a grid pattern. I also saw some good stuff at Stephan Schneider - in burgundy, deep blue, and grey striping. I especially liked a Breton sweater I saw there. Also, some really nice, hand linked wool/silk blend shawl collar cardigans at Ts(S) - I would want one for myself, but the prices were sorta hard to swallow for my smalltimer self. Those were the usual suspects. Um... there were others, but I would need to go through my camera pics to remind me of those brands and what they had.

    I'm interested in photos of that if you have any. I haven't followed SNS too closely; have they done anything like it before?

    And is their preorder imminent, since Schneider (pre) fw16 is happening now, or on a completely different schedule?

    Different schedule. We try to space things out a bit! Should happen in a week or so.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    all clothes are beaters (if you're doing it right).

    i just picked up a margiela that at first glance is like an oversized normcore grey wool stockinette but it's got a subtle 'in-and-out' croc pattern etched into it somehow. i think it's wimmenz but idgaf.

    the 'mall brand' thing is very funny to me - i've collected (and made) knits for a long time and some of my favorites are mall brand. if we're being honest knitting is basically a peasant folkway. PRL has done hand knits in China forever and human hands are just that.

    so, where are you snobs drawing the line exactly?
