    It’s been another great week for WP wearing. Mainly Navy but Army on one day and today Black, to match the leaden skies ! I’ve had a lot of compliments recently especially on the Navy WP from strangers in shops and on the train.

    Question about “moth treated”. My Goodwear D1 has a tag says moth treated. What does it mean? Can I moth treat my other sheepskin? Wool sweaters?

    Thanks! I'm not talking specifically about woolly pully type. The first and only indication of moth prevention was on the sheepskin D1 jacket by John Chapman, which lead me to think if such treatment can be applied across all wool clothings.
    For prevention, I put a lot of moth away tea bags bought from Container Store, wife doesn't allow real moth ball or other synthetic/industria grade stuff so I just just the natural stuff.

    I would say that using natural products on natural fibres is always best.

    I just went all-in and lined our closets with this cedar chipboard. It looks a little crazy, but much more affordable than solid cedar planking. Smells just as good, too-

    That sounds like a project to do! Where did you get the cedar chipboard?

    Chicago's mercurial weather is becoming more fixed cold with more chill on the way tomorrow.
    My Irish fisherman is warmer than any of the commando; so I've been confined to comfort consideration rather than the martial sartorial sweater style I prefer. :)

    I’m assuming the Irish fisherman is the same as - or similar to - an Aran sweater. I have had a succession of these over the years and can vouch for their comfort.

    A home improvement store near me [Menards] sells these panels.

    Yes it is good to get positive comments on one's attire. I am wearing a Navy Crew Neck WP at the moment and will change later and put on an Army Crew Neck WP.

    I have not had an Aran Sweater, maybe I shall try and get one in the New Year, if I do, it would either be a round neck or roll neck.

    I have an Aran round-neck sweater from Barbour that is much the same colour as the Army WP. I like it but don’t often wear it as the WPs crowd it out! It’s a ‘spare’ sweater in a drawer at my parents’ house and I sometimes wear it there when I visit for a weekend.
    I used to have a cream/ecru Aran roll neck bought at the Scottish Highland shop in Great Russell Street. Over the years it became more threadbare (although I mended it a number of times) and eventually it became too small for me!

    Been pretty cold up here recently so my WPs have been getting an outing (no pun intended).

    Re moth proofing...I have found colibri lavendar sachets work well, but moths are always attracted to the smell of sweat, so my advice is to carefully handwash them. I have a secret ingredient that can be added to the final rinse water, but want to market it soon.

    By the way, if anyone here likes the Royal Navy / NATO issue 'jersey's seamans' there's a great looking heavy duty version on eBay uk:- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274138223122

    It's been in the 20s and teens 'round here lately, so the woolly pully has been getting plenty of wear time.

    That's an interesting Jersey, never seen one in Green before. I wonder what the history of that one was?

    Happy New Year/Decade to everyone on this thread!
    Starting 2020 with a Royal Air Force WP with epps and pen pocket.

    I just looked again and it was still there, so I have ordered it. My first purchase of the New Year. I shall be interested to see what it is like.
