Barry Sharpe (Sharpeye) was one of the original Duffer guys.

He designed the Yardie Cardies for Mendoza but also runs his own label.

On the yardie cardies' subject, I've found two related UK websites that offer the stuff, new and vintage. The link to vintage cardies is:

This one looks the dog's b***cks



And the new ones (I think Scott Fraser's clothing has been discussed in the forum already, but anyway...):

They don't come cheap, mind.

Famed breton tops' maker Saint James introduces a mod-friendly twist in their last collection: 100 % wool & made in Brittany, of course (another for the "sales' wants" list, as at 135 it's still a bit expensive):



This "rugby" version of their iconic pull ain't bad either:

That'a a lot of jumper.  I'm not sure that it is overpriced, not saying it's cheap, but manufacturing great quality knitwear in Europe is a costly business, I know.  ;)

That's why I've used the term "expensive" instead of "overpriced", Adam. I think it's a fair enough price tag, knowing Saint James' quality is top notch. But with the impending NY trip I need to save money!  ;D

When are you in NY Syd?
Are you solo or with family?
Doing sights or shopping (or both)?

My apologies, I meant "expensive" too.   Have a great trip to NY it's an amazing city.  :)
