Great. Thank you so much for sharing (and for your custom). The trench especially looks just the right size.
That's music to my ears.No pictures here yet, but the trench is indeed proper bonkers. It's actually much softer than I expected. Heavy? Yes, and just right. Also, even after sizing down, I can do a button up and four ply v-neck underneath, with room to spare. Nor are the sleeves dramatically short--though I may still look for extra real estate there. Will try over tailoring tonight. There are more ways to wear this than I know what to do with.
Paul, in re to the lack of love towards the boatneck...I think your hunch is right.A few final splutters from the knitwear pipeline this week, with the balaclavae and a second colour of the boatneck (which gets not nearly the love of the crewneck and the gansey for reasons to me inexplicable, but maybe not everyone is a fan of full-body side gussets).

One more bodywarmer upcoming, too!
And then, signing off the year, the waistcoat in Herdwick tweed.
And then, signing on to the new year, the trench in ripstop.
It's true.That’s funny because to me the thing that puts me off about the boatneck is the neck itself. I actually quite like the busy-ness of all it’s different facets and features.
So I came to the same conclusion for exactly the opposite reasons. Which if you think about it augurs well for the design. You can never totally please everyone!
I don't think so. You never know, of course, but I doubt it.I'm in whatever camp loves the neck and doesn't mind the sides. Had I not already gotten more knits than I planned for this season I would have snatched up the green boatneck the moment it dropped.
Riding an escooter to work makes the balaclava a bit more tempting this time around, are you in danger of running out of them any time soon?
