How does the WL compare in cut (and quality) to Rubato. They're nicely priced on baltazar. but I'm spoiled with Rubato and wouldn't want to divert too much from that look.
Quality is the same.
Cut is very similar. Maybe WL is fitter in chest.

Dear gentlemen,

Baltzar initially had three colors (see below the two sold-out ones), the Kestrel (mid-) brown (as linked above) which was sold out in a number of few days after its launch, and the blue which was also sold out after couple of days following that.

I have already contacted them, congratulating them for the make-up and suggesting few more colors for their next order round.

That’s brilliant, hopefully they will get some in very soon. Seems quite in demand.. I think the 3rd was the offwhite

Indeed! It is the ecru / off-white.

Grey (in its most shades) will work nicely, and natural as well, however I prefer darker colors, therefore my suggestion to them before the two above were sold-out (November '23) was along those lines:

The three Recs you made sound anazing. I agree with the gray and natural being good.

Hopefully they respond soon and with a new restock date

Thank you very much!

Well, I cannot say if the specific gentleman whom my email is addressed to will notify me or not, I check in their site for new WL articles anyway!

If you look closely, in my attached email there is a comma (,) in the end of the c) and this is followed by my personal favorite; I reckon that it would be fabulous in the short-length, deep-V make-up: it is a cable-knit sweater, 100% pure camelhair in its natural color; FWIT I received extra questions about that, so it did open an eyebrow...

I sincerely hope that some of them will appear in their forthcoming collections!

I presume they would reply! I have actually been to their London Store: Richard Gelding which are part of Baltzar and the team have been very helpful in notifying me of stock when I was interested in some pieces.

I am not sure if you’re based in the UK Dimitris, but mikedarceyhughes (on instagram) is the buyer for their store and could help with the above too.

Are there camelhair products from WL or was it a general request?

Good to know, thank you again!

I am based in Athens, and AFAIK there is no WL retailer in whole Greece, hence my initial reluctance given some size inconsistencies that were thoroughly discussed here.

The said camelhair sweater is a re-branded WL, ordered by Ben Silver, a boutique in Charleston, SC, USA. I have not yet seen, nor handled a WL-made camelhair piece of knitwear, but an un-dyed cable-knit make-up in either short-length, deep-V sweater, or regular length (61.0/64.0cm at my size) sleeveless cardigan is what I am after.

If i miss-understood you ignore this...but can this be a piece under your preferences ? Is not a V-neck unfortunately Screenshot 2024-01-19 at 18.17.32.png Screenshot 2024-01-19 at 18.17.50.png

Thank you for posting a very nice WL-made piece of knitwear!

Well, since I am residing in Europe, I refrain from buying things from the US, let alone from Hong Kong due to shipping, tariffs, the application of Greek VAT, and the customs handing fee by the assigned courier.

More to that, I am not really interested in the camelhair iteration of this crewneck, WL "Chirnside" would be my first choice should I ever contemplate going for it; a beautiful garment, nonetheless!

Just to bump this thread a bit

Rubato is having a sale on some of its V necks, the standard ECRU, Riviera and courchevel if you use the code PRIVATE24 (doesn’t work for other v necks but some cashmere ones are available)

Unfortunately the shipping is quite steep which makes me pay for Imports in the UK and subject to that 11£ or whatever the couriers ask + VAT. But may be helpful for some of you folks. Ecru seems like a wonderful buy

I own a few rubato knit that fits me really well. I missed the opportunity to buy the Deep V sport/cricket cable sweater from a few seasons ago.
Any help for finding a similar knit would be appreciated. I was thinking of ordering a "made to measure" Dalmo knit in cashmere with the same look if I can't find anything close.

Dear @thunderstruck,

As the said cricket cable sweater is most probably made in 100% cotton, I am certain that Michael Jondral (a former AV of StyleForum) has ordered it in the previous SS season(s), albeit not in the deep V-neck configuration, but things might be different this time!

Moreover, you may check with Amidé Hadelin (a current AV of the Forum); Amidé might have ordered something similar for the forthcoming SS season. He always keeps abreast with trends, he is very responsive, and a true gentleman!


Best,

Dimitris
