    Oh I know that. I have their Submariner for example. I just hadn’t seen the Country sweater that the nice chap in San Diego bought.

    Thanks. They need to do better with colors though. I want one in all black but they only offer a Dark Welsh. I am trying to figure out what color Dark Welsh resembles but I cannot register anything. It looks almost dark brown . The charcoal color is stunning though. It would be a $300 sweater at Bloomingdales in NYC.

    I decided to stick with kit and wait further sweater safari hunt till next autumn.

    Remarkable how resilient these sweaters are, some of which I have owned for several decades.:D

    They have 'Black Welsh' - a name that conjures up images of Shirley Bassey and Cardiff's Tiger Bay district. It looks dark brown, much darker than my 'Peat Brown' Woolly Pully. Their 'Charcoal' looks darker than Charcoal wool sweaters I have had from Barbour.

    Thank You. Color well noted.
    I looked it up on Google and the explanation went into a African/Welsh history of the UK. Can you simply the Welsh/African connection for me ? What does it mean to people in the UK ?

    The Tiger Bay Area of Cardiff is the first truly multicultural area of a British city in that its scale of migration, number of languages, religious diversity and level of integration. In particular it is the oldest Black community of any size, with immigrants from the Caribbean and Africa (West and East, especially Somalia or British Somaliland) since the early C20. There has also been a substantial and long-established Yemeni community.

    So do I. You live in a very culturally diverse place yourself.

    Wore my Gaelic Standun fisherman yesterday beneath my Gloverall duffle.
    Simple, smart, snug as a bug in a rug. Arctic cold blast freight train arrives soon. Coffee but no tea.
    Or whiskey. No excuse, all my own fault of course. A fast dash to stock necessities.
    Then, keep the knit on inside flat.
