I bring in this brand (High style) each winter season as their use of pure new wool is amazing, always producing high end quality, an Australian owned brand who manufacture in China.
Fabric & Style
This is amazing, how do I describe it! Made with 100% Australian pure new wool it has a rougher texture, like boiled wool, it is designed as outerwear to layer over your long sleeved knits in the cooler weather. It is box cut with no discernible sleeves, the fabric does fall down your arm to elbow length, there are wide pockets which are attached to the side seams in an extra panel. The standout feature is the superwide collar, lay it down or stand it up to protect from the wind at the back of your neck, it is closed by only two really large press studs at the neckline placed 20cm apart so the fabric doubles over. In a gorgeous Mauve/Lavender with an off white trim on the inside of the foldover and the edge of the collar.
Fit & Function
I only brought these in one size - XL so they will be sold as free size and will suit almost everyone. It is very warm feeling really luxurious, there is no stretch, I absolutely love the way that it closes. I am usually an 18/20, 170cm tall and apple shaped, this fits with room to spare, finishing half way down my thighs.
