1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Need to sell these because I don't wear them and my girlfriend is complaining I'm taking up too much space in our closet (valid complaint). Both are super warm and comfy, basically perfect fall sweaters.

    Up first is a Coming Soon sweater, that I believe I purchased from Yoox a couple of seasons ago for about $200. Original retail was something like $340, and I had been searching for it for a while. Have not seen it for sale anywhere else. It is a take on the classic American raglan shoulder crewneck sweatshirt, except superduper luxe. Raglan shoulders (making them difficult to measure), triangle at neck, ribbing at sleeves and hem. The material is insane: mixture of virgin wool, cashmere, polyamide, angora and viscose. SUPER soft and warm. The knit itself is actually really nice too, not a loose weave but beautiful looped weave. Can't really describe it that well, so I tried to take a close-up (last picture). You really won't find anything like this again. Size M and fits like a slim M but definitely can accommodate a small/36. Too small for me but I've held onto it for the sole reason that it's just difficult to let go of when I like it so much. This thing KILLS similar efforts by W + H and other American heritage brands. Worn once and then drycleaned. Perfect condition. Made in Italy.

    Looking for $115-->$95 shipped CONUS.

    Next is a classic Barbour sweater in a really nice forest green and virgin wool. Raglan shoulders. Really nice tight weave on this. Super warm and will last you basically the rest of your life. Not really much else to say; it's something you'll be able to give your kids. I received it as a gift and it's a bit slim for me, so it's never been worn. Tagged size large and fits pretty true, good for a 48/slim 50. Made in Scotland. Quality is on par with SNS Herning et al. Color is closest to last picture. Retails around $180.
