Item Sizing Origin & Construction Mike's Notes

 

Dear friends!

The venerable William Lockie & Co. of Scotland. has hand-crafted some of the finest sweaters on the world since their start in 1874. 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.

These gorgeous marled donegal yarns are unlike anything we've seen. The surfaces are marled and flecked with a complexity that sets it apart from the pack. Woven in Scotland and sourced from the Australian Geelong Sheep, its long fibers are strong, soft, and very warm. In Scotland, it's considered a step in quality above merino - the kind of yarn that imparts a true "heirloom" level of luxury.

The shape is a simple and basic crewneck body. It's versatile, timeless, and effortless to wear on a cool day. The tobacco ground is versatile, while the colored flecks give it the depth and interest we all seek in the perfect Donegal.

 

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). 

MEASUREMENTS
Note: All measurements are shown in inches. "Chest" is measured from one armpit seam to the other. "Sleeve" is measured from the shoulder seam to the cuff. Length is measured from the base of the rear collar to the bottom of the garment.

100% Lambswool. Made in Scotland.

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. 

The Donegal Sweater is a quintessential Fall/Winter item. This lambswool is easy enough to layer with an oxford or pair with a t-shirt. 

The tones of this tobacco knit with the colored flecks make it a no-brainer with any pant and shirt combination.
