Thank you for explaining that nicely instead of mocking my stupidity :D

I thought I was in that thread but now see my mistake, glad it isn't just me who thought it was weird.

Same thing’s happened to me, in the past (or maybe the other way around)

Too hard to keep track, especially when one or the other thread gets pushed to the second page…

You're not under seige so don't feel you're walking on deadly ground, he thinks he's above the law which is why some members are out for justice...

Any more info on these? Google came up with nothing, I’d buy them because the patch is cool

For those of you interested. Parisian vintage store Brut put out a jeans model, made in paris from italian denim. Seems to be stf aswell, but they only sell one wash, it seems. Price is reduced in the preorder. Fit looks like a 60s/70s model, similar to the superstitch LR-01.

Interesting French brand - Brut denim project - a French vintage clothing shop in Paris making their own jeans using old machinery and Italian denim. Further details and ordering here

There's other interesting items on their site too.

Good shout Maynard.  Brut started out doing pure vintage and have since branched out.  I bought some deadstock Vietnam sunglasses from them a few years back (my lenses are green tho rather than blue) and some military chinos (were bigger sized than advertised though).  I kept a pair of sunnies and sold one on here. They're cool and easy to slip into a pocket.

They did some great aftershave too, the ‘Enry Cooper collab was totally knockout!

Not unknown, but didn't know where else to post. Does anyone know why Private White VC's prices have gone up 50-60% in the last few years? I enjoy their stuff and have some of their knitwear which is superb. Higher labor costs in the UK to blame?

Profiteering more likely

Re. The knitwear - something I see a LOT with these brands is ‘handmade in Scotland’ … so if you have a look at Scottish sites selling (the same) handmade stuff, you’ll get it for about one third to one half of the luxury label brand

Ok, here’s one:

William Lockie Shawl Neck £235 … being sold on A. Hume’s website (I can’t find it on Lockie’s own site anymore)

Drakes £425 … might be a Lockie knit, might not be - I know where my money is on that bet

Which Shetland sweater makers would you recommend? Harleys and William Lockie?
Any others?

Nearly any that does hand knit is a good bet - I’d get one of these before the likes of Harley or Lockie

These look pretty good too for a very fair price.

The Kellister from Anderson’s and the Beauly that Maynard gave you the link for are lighter weight (they look like standard 2-ply) - the Chunky from Anderson’s is a heavier weight (I’m not sure if that’s a double-knit, or extra ply or what … but you could always ask them)

Saw those this morning and was going to post them! Although technically shouldn’t they be in the unknown Japanese brand thread? ;)
