    Royal Navy Sub Sweater

    I just placed an order for a Royal Navy Sub Sweater, I think it will keep me warm and looking ever so stylish when I am kilted this winter.

    http://www.silvermans.co.uk/ProductD...6/Default.aspx

    Made in the UK by the government manufacturer. These superb 100% wool sub sweaters are the same design as the original wartime and early RN issue sweaters, however the machinery to make the really heavy gauge knit is no longer available so the knit is slightly lighter. Current issue to Royal Navy submarine crew. You will not be disappointed with this item. Genuine with reinforcement patches inside neck. Made to latest government spec. Superb rare item. 100% wool. Size 1 = 36/38, size 2 = 40/42, size 3 = 44/46, size 4 = 48/50

    Word to the wise, Silvermans are a great source of surplus kit but you pay through the nose

    Yes, I'd reiterate that. I had a look last night and was shocked at some of their prices. That said, although I've seen them lots before, I can't find anyone else offering the submariner's white pullover.

    Cheers, Graham.
