    Simon Guernsey looks really nice. Anyone know how camel hair feels and does it hold up OK?

    Camel hair feels like a rugged merino wool. It's very soft.

    Good to know, EvanM. There are so few stocklists that one almost has to order many of the knits directly from Esk.

    Thanks good prices, but probably too similar to my Cabourn ones to justify.

    That sportsman neck is great. Is that the camel hair piece? I'd love to know the yarn weight and the knit gauge. Looking for something beefy in a medium to high gauge knit.

    Hmmm... Honestly, cashmere I only get for my wife. I need something hardier and more weather, brush, me, resistant.

    I picked up a few knits over the last few months. Waiting to get a little colder for some of them.

    a couple of ben cardigans for a few hundred a pop - a light merino crew neck collaboration with monocle magazine, and a waist coat.

    There stuff isn't cheap, but it's solidly built and has a great hand feel
