    Nice sweater, Jan. I purchased my first cardigan this year, which is nowhere near as nice!

    I might add that I find yours preferable to Pitt's: Pitt's does not seem to have front pockets or leather-wrapped buttons, and I like how yours buttons up higher.

    The 12-ply sweaters Tomasso has look delectable... unfortunately, the price does not.

    Thanks Philalethes. I just showed the Pitt cardigan to illustrate the connection between Claxton's book and contemporary costume design/fashion. Pitt's jumper (presumably made by Soviet Science) is closer to the heavy cardigan I purchased from Black Sheep last year. That one is incredibly heavy and cannot be worn during summer or late spring...
    Here's the review:

    The Steve McQueen (and yours as well) look great, really - specially regarding the buttons. As I spent a sabbatical in England last year I had the opportunity of buying some cardigans at the Edinburgh Woollen Mill ( online at http://www.ewm.co.uk/ ) and am very happy with them. Just one note - the collar looks great on Steve and you, but personally it is not my choice for cardigans...

    I just perused your thread on the Black Sheep cardigan, and that is a nice one as well. Do you prefer one to the other?

    This has been an outstanding thread to read. Thanks to Jan, and others, for posting pictures and websites. I've been looking at this "heirloom, hand knit" shall cardigan, knit in Prince Edward Island (Canada). It is available from Epaulet in New York. http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/t...ardigan/Detail

    Also, Jan's review of the Black Sheep Ltd cardigan (on another thread) is very useful. It is a website I've not seen before. Excellent stuff! Wish I could buy all of 'em. http://www.blacksheep.ltd.uk/jacket.html

    Just pulled the trigger on the Black Sheep cardigan and a Christmas gift for my wife. Jan should get a commission for making this sweater known.

    What an exciting thread! I think the White of Hawick jacket is a nicer design and worth the extra effort to seek out. I bought my current favorite sweater in Hawick ("hoyk") when I bicycled there in the 90's. Thanks to the people past and present of the Fedora Lounge for opening my eyes to the potential of a really great cardigan.

    I lately like a lot Drake's cardigan;

    but it's more expensive than an Aero HH jacket Is Black Sheep's collar wider or thinner?
