    My impression of the saddle is that it's sort of boring save for the saddle neck, but the fabric is deceptively nice, especially after a little wear. It's definitely the warmest knit I have.

    It's just a classic style, boring? Yes!

    I recently purchased the Spring Summer version which is a mix of cashmere and cotton, but I'm not sure if I would do again. It's sort of to warm for wearing in summer, and doesn't provide enough warmth in winter. I also find it doesn't wear as well the wool/cashmere winter version, although it washes up well. Always buy these at sale because they are always repeated.

    That's a Japanese small so it probably fits more like an XS.

    It appears Barneys has dropped Margaret Howel. Would be a shame as I've picked up quite a few pieces through their website; it saved me when when I was desperately trying to get hold of the Archive Cashmere roll-neck that had sold out here.

    Can anyone in NYC area report regarding Barneys? It would be interesting to know if they've dropped the brand permanently – still listed on the MH site as a stockist!

    I really wish a few more places were stocking the Mainline, most of the good knitwear appears to have already sold out at the London stores.

    Has anyone been into Dover Street Market? They are now listed as a new stockist but I've not had opportunity to check out their inventory, LTK what they are carrying?

    that's probably why they've dropped it, because you refuse to pay retail yet you want more people to stock it?

    Not feeling this, maybe it'll be better when it's merchandised?

    I should know better, but, I went to DSM before I moved back to SF they had a decent selection of MHL, don't think they had any mainline, not sure though.
