Does anyone know where to get Slazenger lambswool V neck jumper at a reasonable price? Preferably UK based. I don't mind whether new or used, vintage or a reproduction. Preferred colours: wine, navy, light grey, black.
A few years ago, Slazenger ran a 'Slezenger Heritage' line. Those were made of lambswool, and the design was close to the 1960s-80s originals. But now every outlet, including on the internet, seems to have run out of stock. All I can find on ebay and elsewhere are Slazenger jumpers with a different (inferior) design: the V collar is not as pronounced, and the material is usually acrylic or an acrylic-cotton blend.
Anthony Sinclair of London still stocks a 'Slezenger Heritage Gold' series, which kicked off with a reproduction of the V neck that Sean Connery wore in 'Goldfinger':
Well, that would be nice - but frankly, I can't afford to spend 180 GBP on a jumper. From memory, the regular 'Slazenger Heritage' line was less than half that price.
