Cardigan alternative

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My brother-in-law's birthday is coming up, and on his list is a cardigan, he said that it often gets too cold in his office (casual/business casual). The problem is, in all the time I've been shopping for his gift, I haven't been able to find anything that is not hideous (ie. acrylic, ugly colors/patterns). Can anyone suggest any alternatives?

Get him a zip cardigan in either black or charcoal. A mock neck and slim fit updates a classic look. You could also opt for a plain black button up cardigan, either a little oversized and slouchy (think Cloak or last year's Costume National), or super slim (think Prada pretty much any year), but he has to be young and thin to pull that one off. Alternatives to a cardigan might be a high v-neck knit. or a wool shirt/jacket that can be worn indoors over a shirt.

Fabulous:  I don't often wear sweaters, but I recently saw a $170 Zegna Baruffa Cardigan on sale through Sierra Trading for $80; however, the only color available was blue/green.  If you would consider this color, this might not be a bad deal.  Sizes M, L, and XL are currently available.

I second this. Malo had some very nice cashmere bomber-style sweaters. John Varvatos has some nice ones too. I personally like sweater vests a lot too.
