For decades the Wooly Pully has been a core staple of British elite forces. From its heavy rib knit to its reinforced shoulders, this classic style is widely renowned for its comfort and warmth.


The TAD Special Service Sweater evolves this classic design with an active fit, full front zip, and Merino wool yarn. Merino’s versatile performance gives the Special Service Sweater great flexibility, allowing it to perform in unpredictable conditions.


Versatile Style


TAD Gear combined the silhouette of the classic British sweater with a sleeker fit and improved flexibility. The Special Service Sweater layers easily under a jacket, and wears well as a casual standalone piece for city life. A full front zip provides ventilation when needed, and strategic reinforcements enhance service life expectancy.


Active Merino


Merino has a unique ability to regulate body temperature. During exertion or warm weather, it wicks away moisture from your body and releases it on the surface. This evaporation mechanism has a cooling effect, enhancing comfort while keeping you dry. To help you stay warm in cold weather, the air pockets in the Merino fibres trap body heat to provide insulation. This adaptive capability makes merino wool garments highly flexible, which is critical if you need to count on a small set of gear to handle unpredictable conditions. Merino is also naturally fire retardant and odour resistant, providing a measure of assurance when outdoors or in the field.

    Warm but not very robust

    Posted by Giovanni on 13th Sep 2019

    Bought this almost a year ago now, and I have to say I'm not as impressed anymore as I was when I first got it. For sure, it's an exceptionally warm sweater and in that respect it does everything that it is advertised to do. It's also well fitted, and out of the box it is a sharp looking garment that you could get away with wearing in more "classy" environments. However, after some time you start to see tonnes of wear and tear on the sensitive merino fabric. Mind you, I haven't done anything crazy with it: think office wear and the daily commute. In colder temperatures I have used it as a midlayer under a lighter jacket. It's a real shame that the material shows so much wear from even light use. It loses it's appeal rather quickly once it starts fraying everywhere. For the premium price of this thing, I would have expected it to hold up much longer. Despite this, it still works fine as an insulator. I just don't think the price of the garment is proportionate with how long it's held up.

    Very Nice

    Treated myself to one of these finally. First thing I noticed when I took it out of the packaging was the weight - it's over a kg, so quality material and should keep me warm.
    I'm 6' with wide shoulders and 33" waist, and the Large fits me well. Sleeve length is just right, so the medium might have been too small.

    Expensive cardigan

    Posted by Robert on 2nd Feb 2019

    Good quality. Prone to bobble and shed as much as the next jumper. Picks up regular pulls requiring maintenance more than most jumpers despite only light daily use. I'd worry about wearing this in the great outdoors. Also can get baggy and stretch out. Warm and cosy, stylish on, just don't expect a tactical garment. Not sure what special service manfactuer had in mind but I wouldn't spend too long leaning against posts trying to look hard unless I has my mum nearby with a needle and thread. Love my cardigan but expensive for what it is and not rugged. Happily worth £100. Not clear what the extra £160 is for. Imported mine direct from TAD due to heinne stock issues. Heinne were great to deal with as always. Couldn't recommend heinne highly enough.

    Excellent

    Posted by James on 14th Jan 2019

    Exceptional wool jumper. So warm with just a long sleeved t shirt underneath. Thankfully you can easily regulate this heat by undoing some, or all, of the full length quality zipper. Surprisingly roomy chest pocket, perfect for a slim wallet. Thought TAD was a prime manufacturer of goods from USA, but surprised to see jumper labelled as made in China. Not my first TAD garment labelled as such. Excellent service from Nick with usual 24 hours from ordering to receiving goods. I'll keep my fingers crossed when it comes time to cold wash it as instructed. Dry cleaning is also an instructed cleaning option. Expensive, but quality always is. Highly recommended.

    Exceptional and essential

    Posted by Nick on 12th Nov 2018

    Been after this for some time but stock runs out fast! A substantial woolly cardie with a real class feel. Warm, quality and well fitted, and it looks very cool. I am 6' and slim, the medium fits perfectly, charcoal is slightly darker than photos. Highly recommended, buy while you can. Best service from the lovely people at HH. All good, thank you.
