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.

    NEW LOWER PRICES:

    Chunky knit wool, size L, NWT. Was $35, now $25 + $6 shipping. What I like about it is that the waist isn't heavily elasticized -- doesn't create that unfortunate "bulge" effect many sweaters suffer from. It's a size large, and I'd say that's pretty accurate. I wear a S or M, and it's too big for me.

    I also have a navy cashmere crewneck in size L. But I realized after I got home that it has significant pilling. It's probably going back to the store, but if anyone wants it, let me know. I'd knock the price down to $24 + $6 shipping.

    The following cashmere sweaters have all shipped to their new owners:

    SOLD: Size large:

    I am very glad the brown is sold. I had to go to lunch to fight the temptation (well, and to eat). That's a great, very fair price.

    I don't have measurements, I'm afraid. I can try to take some tonight, but measuring knitwear can be tough. If the sweater is still available, I'll lay it out and see what I can come up with.

    Just to clarify: Green now gone, blue again available. And the gray wool is still great.

    The gray wool sweater isn't getting the love it deserves.

    Kronik, I sent you a PM. Thanks for the interest.

    If Kronik decides he doesn't want the navy cashmere, I'll try to post some pics. I fear, though, that the navy will make it hard to see what's going on.

    In response to requests for pictures of the pilling, here are two example shots:

    The first pic, on my monitor, is the most indicative of the pilling.
