    Looks great, it took a lot of persuasion to get the knitters to use 10 ply wool but the end result looks great IMO, I got a lot of flack "in house" about the repro label, what do you think of it? These were never going to look professional

    Did your friends really rag on you about the sweater? I think it looks good. What did they say? Are you and I out of touch with today’s fashion world?o_O

    Oh dear, sorry Ken I only looked at the label to make sure I put it on the right way.

    Just had a look, nothing to write home about is it, but I'm no expert.

    They do, but they're very good mates so it's only to be expected.
    Captain Birdseye has been a recent phrase used lol I don't care :)
    I'm quite happy to be out of touch with fashion if the onesy was anything to go by.

    That's more or less what everyone else at Aero said but that's what the RAF used to hand out to the volunteer knitters who added their name or group to the label by hand

    Jeggins are my pet hate, IMO the worst clothing trade faux pas of all time, even worse that those platform sole boots I used to make in the 70s!
    The factory is full of young kids from Heriot Watt Uni all wearing them while they could get LVC 501s at cost, I shudder sometimes

    Holly was especially scathing as apparently the label maker changed the hand written font that she's chosen and nobody noticed until they arrived. I think they are what they are and are therefor OK

    No Ken, "dirty denim" was infinitely worse. Those jeans that seemed to be all the rage a decade or so back that when you bought new from the shop looked like you'd been sleeping rough on the street for 6 months straight or you'd been shat on by a camel with a bad dose of the runs.

    Whilst jeggings are a bit iffy, a girl with a great bum can still look good in them. The same cannot be said of dirty denim.
