I like a good, chunky woollen jumper. I’ve tried woo lovers but find quality v poor. I’m currently wearing a Samuel Windsor - poor finish but ok once you’ve sewn up the badly sewn seams etc.

What is everyone else wearing, Jumper wise?
Just yesterday i got a severe telling off from the missus becomes i was wearing my fisherman style Samuel Windsor jumper out on the farm 🤣🤣
 
I do like the look of these smock things all the lifestyle livestock boys are wearing in the livestock section.

I would still investigate some Swedish or Russian army surplus type stuff though. Much MOD stuff is carp and made by the lowest bidder but some foreign kit is good.

A British Wool Guernsey, now that this week will be turning chilly. It's getting to the Trigger's broom stage of repair, but is nice to wear.
I have a much finer jumper for better of mostly yak fibre that's only now showing its age (for when it's necessary to leave the holding - v comfortable when a top layer over other fine layers), and also a sml collection of merino ones of various ages.

I like the sound of possum fibre.

proper woolly jump, nice thick cotten check shirt. I hate seeing farmers walking around in grubby hoodies pulled up :) what a decent collar is for to keep the neck warm.

see some folk at the local collective sale and its obvious that they have not washed or put on a clean set of cloths for days and its not a one off , if you dont take some pride in your appearance are you going to take any pride in your work.

Ive just got a Fortress Eastern jumper (I wrapped it and my 3 yr old gave it to me for xmas). I got it from the local NH dealer and it cost £20 something. It will probably catch fire at the first sight of an angle grinder but its warm with a fleece lining and has pockets and a zip up collar.

It does tend to 'hold onto' the smell of silage a bit more than my other jumpers, according to my wife, so I'm only getting a days wear before it goes into the wash!!

On the other hand we do have a dirty job and some people work very hard.
