Yes, Woolly pullies were very common in the 70s and early 80’s. I had a navy blue one and one in a browner khaki than would be genuine. I also had a couple provided by Her Majesty but that didn’t last long.

Another drawing from the Japanese "American Trad handbook"...

View attachment 1463701

Curious to see (what look like) a Brit army pull-over there, i don't think the US army have the same ?
I remember when i was a kid visiting England, all the kids there seemed to wear one (late 70s), like this one in Army green.
Later, i had an authentic navy one (from the Brit Navy i suppose) that i kept a very long time...
Are they still popular ?
Are they really considered Trad ?
I have a similar jumper. Mine has suede patches rather than the military type. It is a very substantial and warm garment. Woolovers used to offer them but no longer do so. Now I think woolaway offer a similar one.

Here is the James Bond wardrobe:-

I prefer my suede patches which are a bit more classy than the flimsy ones above. Also no chance of being considered a Walt.

£345 for the N Peal version. You could 6 or 7 of the Woolaway jumpers for that.

If I wanted a military one then I would go to Silvermans

The very early Army woolly pully was a browner khaki with a neck cord,the later ones were more green and didnt have a neck cord,the problem with them was that they were very heavy and tended to stretch after washing...
The Police wore the Navy ones for a while but they seemed to disappear some years ago maybe they got too expensive ? there was an Air force blue too.

Try Outdoor Knitwear,they have the suede patch version also the original woolly pully (they say) in 12 different colours !....I also found a camo version for 'special forces Walts'.
Something in my memory that there was a version with a patch on the sleeve for pens ?

One of the British Millerain Harringtons that I bought in a sale earlier this year,needs the sleeves shortening.
I dont wear jeans that often but these Lois are a bit wider and I think that they work with Brogues.

Your jeans are a better length,I have washed those Lois jeans and I will wash them again before getting them altered....just in case they shrink a bit.
I really like the cut and denim of those Lois jeans, the fit is good IMO, they will indeed shrink a little again for a few washes.
