My problem with heavy sweaters in general is that they are way too hot in most in-doors places and I don't really spend a lot of time hanging about outside in the winter. Maybe good for skiing.

I picked up an extremely soft wool one on sale BBBF. Very soft and non-itchy wool and nice and chunky. I have only worn it a couple of times such as out to diner with the wife during winter. Would not keep it on for more than a few hours as I tend to build up heat and never wear sweaters for more than a few hours. My jacket usually comes off in the afternoon.

My favourite (chunky, but not too hot) washed merino turtle neck. I don't know if they still make them.

I walked into a Brooks Brothers at lunchtime today. They don't have turtlenecks in yet.

Lockie sweaters are quite nice FWIW. I have a shawl neck sweater from them (lambswool) that I love.

I wouldn't buy BB anyways--I have a sweater from them that, while good looking, has pilled a fair amount.

This was "mainline" though, some of their higher end ones might be nicer.

I hate shawl collar sweaters for some reason. I mean, I generally hate all sweaters to be honest. Teh black turtle I kinda like. I only want one because there is an event where I need my arms to be able to do windmills so a jacket wouldn't be the best option.

Oh man, I love sweaters, especially shawl necks. I wear that Lockie sweater just about every weekend day during the winter.

What's the brand?
post #1241 of 1791
That looks like SNS Herning. Supposed to be good stuff as well.

It's the Danish (yay!) brand SNS Herning. I wanted their Fisherman roll neck but had to skip it as the fit was off (the best size I could find was both too long in the body and too tight in the chest). NOBD's model there might fit differently though.

I don't know. Not sure I want to spend $400 on a sweater I am going to wear three times. I ain't no baller. Also, If I can't buy it at a brick and mortar tonight it is out. I need it for tomorrow.

This is why you should plan ahead and always have one set of clothes ready for when you need to wave your arms.

I generally don't move my body very much.
