Dear friends!

We're thrilled to launch our very first preorder with the venerable William Lockie & Co. of Scotland. Since 1874, they have hand-crafted some of the finest sweaters on the world. Their factory sits in Hawick, the traditional home of Scottish knitwear. 

The shape on offer is a simple and basic crewneck body. It's versatile, timeless, and effortless to wear on a cool day. But the yarn is anything but basic.

We labored to source the most interesting lambswool on the market. We're offering eight different options, and each one has a complexity that sets it apart from the pack. Some have multi-colored flecks, some have mono-flecks, some have marled two-tone yarns, and some have all of the above. Woven in Scotland as well, these are some of the greatest knit fabrics that we've ever seen. We're purchasing lots of the each yarn which will yield approximately 24 units per color. Once those units are claimed, that's all that we'll be able to make for the season. 

This is a great opportunity to get a truly unique and standout piece! Or to get several pieces! The preorder runs from today through August 23rd. All colors will be offered in all sizes until a yarn runs out or the project ends. Doing this product via preorder allows to to offer the full color range and slash approximately 25% off the retail price that we would otherwise have to charge. Everything will be expressly cut to order with no extra inventory.  Delivery will be around Thanksgiving, give or take.

The fit for these sweaters is based upon William Lockie's pattern for the Japanese market. It's an excellent slim-fit shape, but runs exactly 1 size small against our typical Epaulet sizing. As such, the sizing is expressed in "true size" and "tagged size." We advise you to order the TRUE SIZE for a correct fit. 

For example, if you take a size Medium in our shirts and a size 38 in our jackets, we recommend that you order "True Size 38 (Tagged Size 40). 



In 1874 the Scottish firm of William Lockie first started production from their knitting mill in Hawick and today still remain a privately owned, family-run business.

Traditional skills along with natural soft Scottish water, which is used to wash out the oils from the raw material, ensures that quality is applied at every level of manufacturing and can not be duplicated anywhere else in the world. Their inherent attention to detail and incredible depth of experience means that each piece can last for decades.
