One fairly recent find (available for trade, size Medium):   PRL silk-linen blend sweater with shawl collar and horn toggle     Pretty slubby texture, but that might be intentional from the silk-linen fabric blend. Very heavy fabric.   Note: edited per double00's very helpful and informative post.

A thrift find that I'm unsure about--Neiman Marcus private label cable-knit cashmere turtleneck sweater: I believe this is a women's piece, but the measurements could work for men's (in particular, it doesn't seem to flare at the hips, and both sleeves and the back are plenty long enough). Is the knit pattern too feminine? Does anything else about it look feminine?     Also, one consignment find. Wish this were my size, still too nice to leave behind: RLBL gray wool...
