On the...oh man it is so of Christmas

What a festive scene! Daniel Jenkins relaxing by the fire in his latest stock. Lou Dalton cardiganwool trousers complimented nicely with a pair of YMC F16 suede boots.

We have a real treat for today's advent calendar entry. Our favourite shopkeep in Monmouth and beyond, Daniel Jenkins has just received new stock from the ever wonderful Lou Dalton. We asked him to give us a few exclusive shots on his pick of the new stock and he has chosen something that will warm you up on this cold, mid December evening. This enamel button cardigan is part of Lou's exciting collaboration with one of my favourite Scottish knitwear brands, William Lockie. The piece is exclusive to Daniel Jenkins outside of Japan. Made in Scotland in extra fine merino wool and finished with English enamel and metal buttons. This is a very special cardigan indeed...

To find out more about this very special cardigan we caught up with the man with the perfect buying eye, Daniel Jenkins. "This cardigan is part of the ongoing collaboration between Lou and William Lockie - founded 1874. All items are made in Scotland from extra fine 100% merino wool. Two small pockets on front ribbing on sleeves and neck and finished with English Enamel Buttons (which are highly expensive). The garment will retail at £145 - which I think is a fairly good price. Items are exclusive to us outside of Japan - Beams have some William Lockie x Lou items but not sure which ones for definite. We've also got a tweed shoulder patch jumper with elbow patches and notched shoulders which is my most worn piece this season (I received mine without label a few months back). Have a wonderful Christmas and look forward to 2010."

This cardigan looks like a great buy. Here's hoping my better half reads your blog and gets this for me.
