    You could put the photos up on the SubMariner / RAF White Roll Neck thread too.

    I hand wash mine cold with Persil, Woolite or the Co-op version, short spin and hung over a drying rack with enough air circulation. I also use a wash in proofer in the final rinse, which is very successful. The house smells of damp dog for awhile, but wet wool does smell like that.

    If it would have smelled a little „animalish“ it wouldn’t have been an issue but that blue Welbeck stank massively and like a dump for chemical waste...;)

    Autumn suddenly seems to have arrived in my part of the UK. Much cooler and very rainy than it has recently been. Ideal WP weather, I was in my Army WP all day yesterday, am now in a Navy WP and will probably change into RAF WP later.

    I am really enjoying the coming of autumn. Today I have also been wearing a Navy WP. Yesterday evening it was the Purple Mix version.

    I'd be happy to measure the sleeves for you if you want ? I chose size 1 equal to 36-39 " chest.

    There is no visible shoulder seam but maybe these photos can help ? If you need me to measure from a different location let me know. 20200924_204729.jpg 20200924_204737.jpg

    I took delivery of a new Welbeck WP (Royal Navy) from OK and am
    greatly enjoying wearing it. The Welbeck is the version without the patches.

    Picked up an original issue GOB sweater from this Army-Navy Surplus storefront in Chicago many years ago. Incredibly warm, great winter working sweater. Mine has a tear in one wrist from a stint working at an unheated welding shop when it got caught in a latch, but the tear never progressed/unraveled. Very well made utilitarian garment.

    Outdoor knitwear just sent an email offering discounts on end of range sweaters, I just ordered the Rothey Version of the WP in the greenish shade.
