Iso, hers is rolled much more flattering than yours. Maybe it's your technique or your tailor needs to reduce the roll a bit.

also...this picture above looks like an amish woman. apparently amish clothes are trending now in fashion circles??

Generally I think you'd have to play with the proportions of the other elements around something more feminine in a classic-menswear-inspired outfit. Degree of difficulty would be high, but an androgynous middle-ground could be an interesting place to be if it worked for you. Probably more a SW&D side of the fence approach than what we see here, but I'm all for blurring the lines if you're willing.

As for the amish/prairie thing, some is closer to that than others, but women's fashion is definitely playing with a lot more shapeless forms, simple fabrics, and mostly unsaturated colors these days.

Some of these are exaggerations to prove a point, but stuff like this is at stores in SF right now for sure.

Spirit of Shetland can make one to your measurements in the same wool (Spindrift Conifer) for about £65. I got that exact colour a few months ago and love it.

Why does your sweater have three sleeves?

I own several green sweaters in different shades and textures. Green is a color I really like to use in the fall and winter, and not only for sweaters, I use it for trousers, socks, jackets, etc... I think it is a very versatile color to use in a casual outfit.

Green can have the earthy tones of browns (olive) and cool hues of blues (forest). If you're lucky, you can sometimes capture both..

Thanks, much appreciated! Those seem like a screaming deal for MTM, made in the UK knitwear. Especially where the pound is today.

They are definitely good value - here's a picture of mine. The colours aren't coming out properly on my phone camera, the pictures on NMWA show the colour pretty accurately.

You look like a cool dad. Congrats. I'll have to copy that suit shirt look when I lose ten lbs. Is that a tattoo necklace or jewelry?

Haha thanks, I try to be a cool dad.

I have a collarbone tattoo and a beaded necklace that I've been wearing for a few years (it never comes off).
