    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I just got a walk-through of the new Autumn/Winter range.

    I was really impressed by the clarity of thinking behind each item; I guess I'm more workwear-oriented so it was items like the jumbo cords that appealed the most to me, but there are also some terrific modern items, like the Rain Duffel, and more traditional stuff, like the Fox Flannels overcoat. Most of all, there's a real integrity to their sourcing - no high price items made in China, like we might find on some other upmarket labels.

    ^ Stevenage knitting closed in 2010. I have a chunky Albam cardigan from them and it's excellent. Shame that capitalism did them in.

    I have the old one in red with black elbow patches, it's nice, but not shawl collar cardigan nice.

    My main (only) issue is that its pretty thin.

    Fine, it's a great piece, I just prefer thicker knitwear.

    I don't doubt you will love it, I love mine, but if you expect to be really thick and chunky you are going to disappointed at first.

    You are correct the sweater is not super thick, but would say its medium weight. I love the color variation.

    I'm interested in some sweater that they have for sale as well.
    How is the sizing? fit true to size?
    I'm usually small in most brands and confused with number sizing:embar:

    Sweater is sold out on the site. I'm beween size 0 and 1 ordered a shirt jacket before in a 0 and its slim, for the knit I order a 1. Its not loose but a little relax. Might try a warm wash to shrink it.

    Might be worth a go. I've been a bit disappointed with some of their stuff though, actually. I picked up that parka and sent it right back.
