    Great post, i love everything wool. I had the chance to look at a GFA pullover that was a friends, it seemed very nice to me. Iam very happy to see that the quality of his products holds. Also great modifications, leather and wool... traditional and functional. Do you have a better pic of your dog?

    Excellent write up. I really dig the pullover. I am a huge fan of wool.

    I've had him for about 7 years now, from before we moved to the north country. He still hunts with me, mostly Grouse now, he has adapted. No pheasants this far north. He's not a fan of the cold.

    Awesome, thanks for the review - this is the exact pullover I had my eye on (the grey mackinaw in 28oz), so it's nice to see what it looks like from different angles and hear some first hand impressions.

    Do you think the leather edging was necessary if you're layering under it? Or did it still kind of chafe the neck and cuff areas before you added the leather?

    Great review brother....For the cost, the GSA hoodie is a great piece of kit. Ive owned mine for a few years now and its held up great.

    Doesn't really bother you much until you start working up a sweat, that's when the neck line kind of itched a bit. The edging wasn't needed, just provided a nice look and it does improve the comfort but it isn't a game changer on the shirt without it.

    I was contemplating using the shearling lining in an old coat to edge the neck and cuffs. I still may do that if I get another shirt. I think using some old lamb shearling to put a ruff around the neck and cuffs would be pretty cool.

    You could use about anything I guess, wouldn't have to be leather, fleece would work pretty good too.

    He looks like a good dog. Great color those german shorthairs and wirehairs have they blend right in. I bet he dosen't like the cold much tho, such a fine coat,,,,, maybe a wool jacket for him?

    Love the look of the mackinaw, just don't have much use for one out here in the desert.
    One of those in a fleece would be awesome, though.
    (Aw, crud. May have thunk myself into another "someday" project...)

    Those plastic tabs could be replaced with leather and brass attachments. Either stitched in or riveted through a leather sandwich.
