Anyone know where to find a navy pindot scarf in wool/silk? Drakes doesn't have any at the moment (they have one that is 100 percent wool only). Easy to find 100 percent silk options, but there's something special about the 70/30 wool-silk mix.

Look at H.N. White. They're out of stock at the moment but the composition is what you're looking for.

Thank you, will take a look! What about the size? I hate a tight beanie.

EDIT: Nevermind, just saw the price, 275€ for a beanie is too much for me right now. And a thought Drake's one was expensive haha... I was expecting something in the 50-60€ range.
Ooof. NMWA has them now for $135USD, and under, here in the states...

You know, I actually bought that one but I didn't like that the spots were tan instead of white. Just looked off. Super picky, I know.
Thanks for the recommendation, though!

I actually think they’re a newer model since I’ve never seen them before. Could be wrong though. They clearly have way more designs than listed on their site.
haven't seen anything about them and no retailler here in Europe have these.

I’ve contacted Astorflex about the nimflex model:

“Nimflex is a new model created in exclusive for Huckberry and that is the reason why you can't find them in Europe.”

I’m so tired about exclusive releases 😢. They are an Italian company, come on….

Thank you for this. However, there doesn't seem to be any advantage to MCR's socks in terms of quality (most or all on the website seem to have synthetic materials mixed into the cotton or wool majority socks) or price.

Perhaps the GBP 35 for the Drake's socks are actually good value!
I don't know if you'll find the exact fabric (wool/cash/silk) sock, but my go-to for a variety of colors, sizes and fabric socks is:

What is the general advise about sizing with Jamieson's Shetlands? Size up 1 from chest size?

I'm a size 38" and measurements on their website shows that a size 40" is pretty similar to Drake's shetlands in size Medium.

Happy to proxy if you’d actually like
