I've got a review copy of the book and planning to write about it for the No Man blog - would you guys be interested in an interview with her? @sood
Hell yes, that would be way cool!

Seriously guys, listen to the podcast:

Super interesting episode on fabric and textile development, I think people here will appreciate it
This writer Virginia Postrel (who has written for the New York Times and a bunch of other places) is interviewed about a book she wrote about textiles as technology, textiles as culture, textiles that prompted the growth of modern management techniques to run mills to process silk in 14th Century Italy, how the type of cotton we use only exists because of a freak cross pollination between continents and is the only one of 54 types that has fibres in it... the podcast is packed with fascinating stuff.

Just go listen already!

This is useful to me as well, thanks. What size do you wear in WL, if I may ask?
I’ve got a 42 chest, 36 waist, and am 5’9”.
Large in most knitwear including WL. Large in IM. I have a couple trad fit j press shaggy dogs in medium that fit ok, but jpress trim fit in large fits me better. I wear medium in S&C cardigans, sized up to 54 in Doppiaa turtleneck recently acquired, hope this helps.

Hard for me to choose a favorite, as I've loved everything I've gotten this season.

I would highlight the document smock with its ridiculously soft fleece and awesome oversized fit.

Byborre is a guilty pleasure, and the color and feel of the merino in the overshirt was a revelation compared to the other pieces I have from them:

Honorable mention to the Chamula fisherman sweater: beautiful color and, again, so soft. Thinking of getting a cowichan from them, but prefer a solid color.

This is one I would definitely get if there were an XXL. Kyle posted a pic wearing it recently and looked awesome:

I have a navy Barbour (well loved) so it’s pointless but at the same time I’m still tempted...

two websitey things:

for Jamieson's stuff, the "shop this maker" link at the bottom of the page doesn't work (and i'd also continue to lobby that the name of the maker at the top of the product details should be a link to the maker page)

and i am once again asking for a size chart on the Glenn's rain indigo denim

listen son, we’re working on your demands, okay? Some of this is above my pay grade, alright. But we’re working on it, ok. Now, you gotta give us something, kid. You gotta let one of them go, sport.
