The knit sportcoat (or quasi-sportcoat cardigan) thread

I'm warming to this concept, even though I'm usually hostile to hybrids. Suggestions? Here are a few photos for inspiration. Keep them coming, if you're so inclined. Any suggestions for good quality options would be most appreciated. Cheers.

I own a RTW knit jacket (3-patch) by Gran Sasso. Very comfy, I usually wear it with a chunky roll neck sweater and a pair of full cut flanel trousers and/or wale cords.

The lapels on my notch lapel cardigan won't stay down, and it is so annoying. I'm going to have to break out the needle and thread.

Nice stuff. Most knit sportcoat I can find, though, have the currently fashionable proportions, i.e. far too short for my taste. Any suggestions on where to find a more traditional silhouette.

Interesting idea... I am a big fan of the "traditional" shawl-neck cardigan - patch pockets, neck buttons to allow closure, nice and thick. In the winter I tend to wear them instead of sports coats, it's why I probably won't get a winter-specific blazer for a long time, if ever. If I need something more formal I wear a suit.

I have one or two and they are perfect for casual Fridays. Bought a cheap one at Reiss which obviously isn't holding up well, but was a good way to dip my toe in...

too hip, too fashionable, too streetwear. 

 

why not just stay with cardigan?  or unstructured sports coats such as boglioli?  or soft tailoring bespoke stuff?
