Hunched over when I took the photo, hence the odd appearance at the button point and the shadows. Nonetheless:

That jacket doesn't fit you well. Too slim in the waist and sleeves. The high button stance isn't helping either. I like the patterns and colors in the fit though.

^ I was going to say pretty much the same. Maybe you're hunched over, applky? I like the elements and textures, so if you're not hunched or standing oddly for the photo, you should consider having the waist let out.

Oh, and I was also meaning to ask you: from whom do you buy your cardigans, Gerry? Are they cashmere?

Should have added (and just did) a note that I was hunched over and about to reach for the camera when this photo was taken. There's no bunching at the button point when I'm standing and moving normally.

Thanks! It's made by Passotti with a single stick tiger-eye maple stick and a blue camouflage canopy. I've put some pictures up at http://gezzasmenswear.tumblr.com/post/134458262987/new-umbrella-by-pasotti-you-can-read-more-in

I get them from various places. This one is from Uniqlo as are  a number of others, I have a couple from Berg and Berg and my orange cardigan is from J Lindeberg. I have a few shawl collared cardigans as well (two from Hackett and one from The Armoury).

The right shirt sleeve got caught up somehow and flap got tucked inside the pocket which I noticed only after the photo was taken.

I get them from various places. This one is from Uniqlo as are  a number of others, I have a couple from Berg and Berg and my orange cardigan is from J Lindeberg. I have a few shawl collared cardigans as well (two from Hackett and one from The Armoury).

 

Thanks for the info, Gerry. Out of the brands you mention for the non-shawl collared cardigans, it looks like Uniqlo is the only one that offers a variety of colours. Seems there’s quite a bit of varied opinion about Uniqlo here on the forum too. While I can appreciate that high prices don’t automatically buy quality, Uniqlo’s low prices are cause for concern, and hesitation.

 

How much wear have you had from your Uniqlo cardigans? Currently I’m trying to weigh up whether paying substantially more for knitwear, say from a reputable English maker, is worth it. All the knitwear I currently own is of a quality (lack thereof perhaps!) such as one might expect from Country Road, made in China, and does pill to a larger or lesser extent over the course of a season of wear. Of the knitwear I currently own, none of it has worn so badly that I feel the need to throw it out. After a quick removal of the pilling, once or twice a season perhaps, all my knits basically still look new. Maybe this is because I’m fairly light on my clothes and I hardly ever wash or dry clean my knitwear (personally I believe this is a factor that contributes most to the demise of even quality knitwear, though I am only hypothesising since I’ve never owned ‘the good stuff’). In fact, so far I’m careful enough that airing and brushing has done the trick, and I have knits going between three and five seasons strong with this regime. Regular rotation probably helps too, but I think only to a small extent, since my collection is small.

 

Anyway, while the pilling I mention is far from intolerable, and it seems I can still get several seasons out of cheap merino knits (which keeps me very happy at the price point I’m paying), does higher quality knitwear represent better value in the longer term? My feeling is that I’d want it to last at least 10 years to justify paying 2, 3 or even 4+ times as much depending on the exact makes compared. Maybe my expectations would be lower if I’d not already found that I can get a lot out a cheap garment.

 

So, to cut to the chase, given my lack of experience, I wondered if you could offer any advice, or for that matter, whether any other veteran wearers of knitwear would care to share their experience?

Nice boutonniere, and overall, I find the elegance of this fit exceptionally pleasing to the eye!
