Not worth for a 15GBP sweater which is very thin anyways.
On mine there is already some kind of synthetic fabric hanging out of the hem, this after only a few months of wear.
Yet again, it's a cheap made in China sweater, one should not expect too much from it.

On the other hand I received my first Spirit of Shetland sweater today, far better construction, handframe knitted of thick pure new shetland wool and a lovely colour (Mooskit).
The sleeves turned out 3cm wider and 8cm longer than what I asked for, but I am sure I will be able to sort it out with SoS and won't go back to Uniqlo expect maybe for some cheap cashmere sweaters to wear in more formal outfits.

Grey with a touch of blue and purple. Enjoy your friday gentlemen.

Citan, I really like your style.
Some oldschoolers might accuse you of being a bit boring regarding colors and patterns but I much prefer dressers like you, always looking solid is way better than sometimes looking awesome and often clownish.
Please keep posting!

Thanks, I really appreciate that. In regards to your observation it has much to do with my age (27) and not wanting to spend a huge amount of money on non basic stuff. I would rather get staple colors and solids before I branch out too much smile.gif

Maybe these are good.

Thanks for the tip. The Icebreaker one would be great if it were cashmere.

It's spring, and still, wool rules. The trousers are Epaulet Walt. Color is indigo. I need to watch Crat's tutorial on how to get the perfect shoe shine. These are a disgrace.

This suede jacket's a bit big for me, but I love the softness of the material so much, I can't bear to ever part with it. It's still nice for slouchy, casual wear:

 

 

 

 

And something a little trimmer:

^^ Apart from lack of cuffs, the bottom is best! smile.gif

How do you feel about this? A little over the top retro perhaps? Pants are gray flannel, jacket is a DB brownish herringbone tweed with orange overcheck, sweater is green and tie is navy woven silk with green elephants.
