    I understand their cashmere is quite good (some of the last remaining decent fibers readily available) and that their 2-ply is actually closer to an Italian (read: luxury) 4-ply. It's nice to hear that their wool feels supple and substantial.

    All and all I'm quite intrigued. I also like the range of their melange color palette. Might pull the trigger on a blue and purple with a little extra texture.

    Last question: How does it fit? Couldn't get an idea of whether it is baggy or tight from Mr. Gilchrist's responses.

    Gant tweed. Although I'd never wear it in that combination (unless I was slightly inebriated).

    With a check country shirt it'd look good in that combination.

    I've got a tattersall somewhere which might suit...

    I like the direction Gant has been heading for the past year or so.

    Well, supple isn't the right word, I think. Substantial, definitely. With old-fasioned I meant a bit rugged. I don't mind that at all, but if you want cashmere buttery soft, this is not the right sweater.
    Yes, the colours and textures are quite nice.



    It's a bit roomier than I'm used to. This is an M. I'm ~ 1.88 m / 80 kg. Impression:

    Thanks for the insight, NO. I have a couple sweaters on order from Avon Celli that I think are going to fit the "smoother, Italian" cashmere feel. I was looking to Lockie for a rougher-wearing cashmere that could take a bit of a beating. I have a slightly wider frame than you, so I don't think sizing should be an issue for me.

    Again, glad to hear you're pleased and thanks for taking the time to respond.

    My pleasure. You knew this one was lambswool and not cashmere, didn't you?

    Indeed I did. I was more interested in fit, construction, etc. However, if a company takes pride in spinning high quality yarns in one product, then the quality likely resonates through their offerings (especially with companies that only manufacture one type of good). I assumed that a positive review of one of their sweaters (regardless of material) was a good indicator of what to expect from all of their knitwear.

    ^
    Yes, that makes sense.

    I'm probably returning it, btw. I think I can get a better fit; I want to try an S in stead of an M. I hope the shop can order it for me.
