Slim-fitting wool v-necks!?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well, my favorite sweaters are finally biting the dust, and they're going to have to be replaced. I wore the living shit out of them, because I LOVE SWEATERS.

The trouble is, though, I kinda hate cashmere, and most small, slim-fitting v-necks I can find are made of cashmere. It's just too wimpy a wool. Every cashmere sweater I have ever owned, regardless of the cost, either sags dramatically with age and becomes dumpy-looking, or pills up beyond recognition.

The sweaters I had, the now hole-y ones, were made of a tight-knit shetland wool. They were durable, comfortable and cool looking. They were made (surprisingly) by Express, approximately eight or nine years ago. Traditionally styled, a good depth-of-v, not too light, not too heavy, just the perfect thing for wearing with a shirt and tie under an odd jacket.

Does anybody know where I can find some (not stupendously costly) sweaters to replace my dead ones? Of lambswool or shetland or some other similar wool?

Those do look nice, but I've got my heart set on something a little... scratchier, I guess.

How's the sizing on Smedley knits? I'm trying to decide between a L and an XL, I'm a 44-46R depending on how slim things run.

It even says, right in the description: "...very soft and not scratchy at all."
