Is it silly to order Canadian Whiskey as well? Because that sweater is best worn while drinking some.

While the sweater is from Scotland, the brushing is done per the request of J. Press. I'm not sure that you'll easily find a brushed sweater outside of J. Press. Frankly, the brushing gives the sweater a worn and used look, which is not a look I'm fond of.

Just look for mohair sweaters, the pure ones often have this wispy cloud-like texture.

Thanks, but mohair sweaters strike me as feminine.

The Shaggy Dog sweater is pretty feminine too. I have one that I like okay, but wear only infrequently. It's worth noting that it's an extremely lightweight sweater despite its look.

Any leads with this one, same situation as radicaldog and not too keen on the extra $90+ dollars of shipping and customs.
