With the New England weather upon us, I've found myself wearing a lot of wool (cashmere and merino, actually) sweaters when going out on weekends, etc. It's just too darn cold at night to just wear an untucked button up shirt w/jeans. My "problem" right now is that almost all of my sweaters -- especially my nice ones -- are plain. I have a few different colors -- burgundy, light grey, charcoal, navy, blue, heathered brown, & emerald green -- but no stripes, argyles, etc. My style sort of mediates between preppy and NYC (South of 14th St.) -- I like streamlined fits, tend to go with darker colors, wear a lot of dark jeans, but don't go with all black or synthetics or trendy stuff so much. What kind of interesting patterns/colors would be good for my next sweater purchase? Also, I would love a few more "cool" shirts that I could wear untucked. I have an ever growing "dress shirt" (read: work) collection that has a lot of cool colors and patterns that can work equally well on weekends as with suits, etc., but not many of them can be worn untucked. Jantzen is a long wait, and Steven Alan is too expensive. Is Banana Republic a blaise option here?
