    I now have British, Dutch, Italian, and Spanish government issue commando sweaters in the collection. Always liked the military surplus woolly pullies best.

    I whole heartily agree, woolly pullies are great, (You can get German army & navy WPs too) The Spanish one shown above looks to be Bottle Green Colour and has more than one style of pattern / knitting too.

    When you say ‘military surplus’ Woolly Pullies do you mean second-hand as opposed to the Woolly Pullies bought new?

    I like the Spanish pattern.
    German somehow is where I draw the line: the associations are still there a bit. ...

    No. Mine were all new and unissued but they were made for the military.

    Yes I have seen the German ones. They stray the most from the traditional design.

    Coleman's has the one like mine for 19.95 in size xl down. I paid double that but mine is a 2xl.

    Most of mine are as above, new and unissued, but I have bought some from Surplus shops when they have been in very good condition. ( I happen to be wearing one of the latter now, an RAF Crew Neck WP.) :)

    It is great WP weather today and I am enjoying my green Army version with epps and pen pocket.

    Yes, many of mine come from surplus shops - which often sell new WPs. I have in the past had a number of ‘second hand’ ones worn by Army, Navy or RAF men.

    Your boss has good taste.
    The photo was taken a couple of days ago. I’m wearing my Dark Grey Mix WP today.

    Might be pulling mine out tomorrow. Apparently the afternoon windchill is projected to be in the -40s.
