I have a Barbour woolly that looks very similar. Very warm but the crew neck is itchy. I now wear a Berghaus 600g fleece, very insulating, a zip to open if you get too hot, and a high collar to keep your neck warm. Easy to wash too.

Me too - to somewhere I'd rather not go!

Unfortunately I remember the Party 7 and it's bigger brother the Party King and it's smaller sibling the Party 4... Watney's beer was never very good although Double Diamond was vaguely drinkable but you couldn't get drunk on it.... I'm now the holder of a budding Party 4 due in part to a predilection for biscuits and real ale ... except my good lady now refers to it as a "Veranda Over My Toyshop"

As to the Jumpers, I have taken to wearing Berghaus fleeces as they are lightweight and very warm, NorthFace do some nice ones in "Go-Outdoors" very cheaply indeed :Thumb: :Hat:

You know what they said about Watneys beers... Don't take the p*** (extract the urine) out of it, cos all you'll be left with is water!

Like AC I have no links with 'Woolovers' but my wife and I have had a fair number of assorted woollens and all have been good, they all come up big in size and their ads tell you this. On the beer......when I was an apprentice engraver in south London in the late 60's my journeymen took me down the pub each Friday lunchtime and bought me 3 pints (sometimes more) of Courages Directors bitter, my head swam..... but when I went out with my mates the watneys/double diamond weak fizzy beer was what most people drunk and I could cope with numerous pints without too much trouble, can't remember exactly when the rubbish beers started to lose favour ? but they just disappeared but as this topic shows well remembered !
