Tried a bunch of times to order the cocoa shawl cardigan. Each time it gets OUT OF STOCK. Yet the item still shows up as available even after refreshing site. Sent an email to them yesterday no response so far.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I pretty much tried all Sunday to order the green shawl and it said it was available in all sizes, I couldn't add a single size. I live in the UK and the stores had none in stock so I'd pretty much given up hope, but today I called the factory store where some of the webshop team work and they managed to find one out for me, take the payment and ship it for next day delivery.

Meant to come on to spread the word but been busy.

If there is something on the site that you specifically want I would honestly call either your store or the factory store because using the website for me has just been really unreliable.

With regards the recent Pitti pictures uploaded a few days ago, does anyone know who makes the ripstop jacket and olive blazer (picture we're cuffs are turned back)?

Frustrating how the site does not provide basic measurement details on the shirts.
I mean.....isn't this the most basic thing selling clothes online?

It is a huge pain. you can find measurements for a lot of items on Mr Porter though, they have a decent Drake's stock and have very detailed measurements.

Before the site change, they used to have the measurements for each item. I don't know why they dropped this with the change.

Can anyone who has one of the submariner roll-neck sweaters comment on how well it wears? I saw one in person and was impressed with the feel and fit, but I am always leery of piling and stretching on sweaters. In all fairness my sweaters have been lower quality, but I don't want to drop the full price on something that isn't going to last. Looking for thoughts before I pull the trigger.

I've got a white one made by William Lockie which I believe is the same what Drake's sells under their own label. I wore it last winter and didn't notice any pilling or stretching. It seemed very well made. I would have worn it six or seven times before the weather got too warm for it.

I have a few of their knits, but not the submariner sweaters. I do have a thinner merino turtleneck from them though.

All sweaters pill eventually, but these don't pill as much or as easily. As you probably know, you can take care of pilling with a sweater shaver.
