Ive been gazing longingly at some lovely vintage knits on Etsy.
Circa, 30,s 40,s & 50,s era.







This thread is seriously lacking some fit pics. Do you think Gina would do us the honors Lefty?

I don't think I'd be happy with the high neckline, but I sure do love the color and texture of this one from SEH Kelley.


If anyone spots something similar in a non-shawl cardigan, let me know :)
I make things out of leather.

This'll be the last RRL cardi I'll post for a while, but I quite like this hand-knit cotton piece I saw on bay

What's the country of manufacture for RRL knitware? they look a bit Cowichen but expensive when compared to the Canadian Sweater Co.

There's a Bobby Fish cardi at the vintage shop nr my work, its lacking the cable-knit on the shoulder but its the same colour/style with some lovely crushed minstel buttons.

Here's an old one from me.

Living in a cold wet northern european environment the sheep fleece around my neck of the woods tends to carry a lot more lanolin so it still feels ultra-soft (unlike coarse processed wool) but is very waxy like a hipster moustache.
After handling those adoreably stupid clouds on legs your hands feel velvety soft for the rest of the day and if you go down to the river to catch some fish your hands are waterproofed, the water just beads off...

I think they are mainly made in China - sadly...

Mainly made in China but some are USA, couple of crewnecks, shawl collars and cardigans available currently online.

Searching for 'made in' on the Ralph Lauren site brings up all the stock that isn't from the far east essentially, as these are listed as origin of 'imported'.

Is that denim rub? If so- You're a bad man. There are laws in place to protect those sheep from people like you.

Those laws don't apply in rural Derbyshire Mr B, in fact, they're positively frowned upon and flagrantly disregarded.
