Submariners sweaters

Hi Anybody know I can buy a genuine submariners sweater not one on these expensive rip offs that some shops sell.
Ive tried surplus stores and had no luck.Eastman leather sell tham as aircrew one's but never have the right size?

Have you tried accosting a submariner and offering him £100 for his submarine-tested, genuine white sweater? :)

I had two brand newies (don't ask!) lurking in the top of my wardrobe for donkey's years. Last year I offered them to my two sons (aged 46 and 36), as I thought I would never need them. Having never seen them worn I enquired why, and was told that "roll necked sweaters are only worn by homosexuals so that they can be recognised by other homosexuals"!!!!!!
I think they finished up in the charity shop!
No wonder our modern sailor doesn't go asore in uniform anymore!!

Watch out for the same sweaters that were only issued for minesweeping - clue - they don't still smell of diesel - but might still be sticky with salt.
