What's the quality and fit like on ASOS own brand knitwear? Need a couple of beater jumpers for work and they've a better variety of colors than Uniqlo.

Bought the airport sweater from APCxKanye West last week at dsm. Don´t really get the collab , but the sweater is super light and comfortable in a spun boucle merino yarn.

Chamula, made in Mexico for peanuts, and then marked up 1,000 % for western cunts to buy.

Nice knitwear though:

They're made to order by Meg Company, and I have no idea what the supply arrangements are (I doubt it's sweatshop labour). They're made in Chamula and the place, if it is famed for knitwear, will probably have stuff for general sale; whether it's as good as the stuff above I have no idea. Meg Company won't be having a factory shop in Chamula, if that's what you mean; but still, if your mate is near the area it might be worth having a little look to see what's about.

Who normally stocks Jamieson gear? Wouldn't mind getting another fair isle jumper this year and they're definitely the best makers.

I've spoken to End, and they don't know whether they're stocking Jamieson this year, which is a bit weird that they don't know their inventory for the next month….

But anyway, spoke to Oi Polloi and they are stocking Jamieson this year, reckon they're going to get them early November, so keep your eyes peeled because the sell out pretty quickly.

Has anyone tried buying from Jamieson directly? My mate had to work up in the Shetlands a few years ago and I know they've got a shop up there that flogs fair isle / shetland wool jumpers but I don't know whether they sell over the phone?

Leith are very well regarded for their 'ivy league' style clothes, especially their madras shirts - considered to be amongst the best on the market.

Have no idea about their jumpers - I'd imagine they're on point given how well respected they are generally. Probably made by Harley of Scotland or Laurence J Odie I'd imagine.

EDIT - made in Shetland Islands so that's be Jamieson / Anderson or Sprit of Shetland - I'd imagine it'd be Jamieson. Quality will be spot on.

Our jumpers are traditionally crafted on the Shetland islands using 100% Shetland wool from the Jamiesons mill - a company who have been suppling yarn since the 1890s.

Where does an averagely-decent polo neck for around £50? Burned mine at New Year's and want a beater replacement.

Apart from the ASOS / Topmans of the world - there's

Alain Paine Linton (bit over budget at 70 quid)

http://www.alanpaine.co.uk/linton-roll-neck

Or Peter Gribby (about 50 quid)

I ain't tried either, though I've been loking to have a punt at the Gribby's at some point,
