on the shetlands conversation, some nice crewneck shetlands now available at anglo-italian https://angloitalian.com/products/crewneck-knoll-shetland-wool-green-1

based on measurements, looks pretty close to shetland woolen's sizing in the chest, with a little less length overall (which is a good combo as far as I'm concerned)
Made in Italy so not really an authentic Shetland (for the purists out there). Also the price point is pretty eye watering - plenty more affordable options out there.

Isn’t that price in line with Drakes and J Press? Agree I’d prefer a Scottish made one but the Italians churn out nice knitwear and Labor costs are probably about the same?

Once you minus 20% VAT and then take into account the weak-ish pound, it's about the same as End sells Shetlands for

Edit: that's an exaggeration on my part, apologies. The A-I would be $194, end goes from about 125-175. Either however end up being way less than Drake's at $295

Looking at a used lambswool Drake's "submariner jumper" on eBay...has some pilling. How well do these debobbler tools work? I have no experience with them.

Sweater shavers? They work great. Get the $15 Conair @dieworkwear recommends.

I’ve also used that defuzzer on a few sweaters that I have shrunk and they work pretty well to remove the appearance of felting at the lowest setting.

Do you have a link of the post or comment where he recommended it?

Second recommendation for the conair sweater shaver (picked it up after the PTO article) it works great.

I know it's not available this year anyway, but out of curiosity in case it is brought back: does anyone have any experience/thoughts about the expedition parka?

I didn't like it at first but I'm having second thoughts now.
Yeah, I'm kind of regretting not picking it up during the factory shop sale - don't really care about lack of hood, it doesn't get *super* cold in England, but eh.
Guess I do have my USN peacoat for cold days though.

I tried it in the store, loved it, very thick and lush. Just couldn’t afford it at the time.
