There isn't anything wrong with how it looks in my opinion. The issue is that it's probably poorly constructed and made from inferior fabrics. From my experience, JCrew produces a lot of shitty products that won't last for even 6 months without the stitching coming apart or other malfunctions. This is especially true of their knitwear. Save up some money and go buy yourself something a little better, whether that's from Pringle of Scotland, SNS Herring, Loro Piana, etc. is up to you.

All knitwear purchased by SW&D posters must be Stephan Schneider. All exceptions must be approved in advance.

if you buy that shitty dip dye instead of an sns you deserve to be banned.

for $70 that jcrew cardigan is fine, assuming it's 100% wool and will fit you properly. you'll also become conditioned to the prices of things people on sf buy. buy less, buy better concept. i bought my sns stark for $200. if you told me 3 years ago I'd be buying $200 sweaters I'd have laughed at you. but, it's so well and i wear it so much that you quickly become accustomed to the higher price. before that I used to buy 3 or 4 $50 hoodies a year, which, in retrospect, seems ridiculous.

I dunno I probably wouldn't pay $70 for that jcrew knit. I have had a few jcrew knits in my halcyon days and they all ended up being really shit

There's so many sweaters on ebay it's ridiculous. $70 should buy something really, really nice... I wouldn't pay more than $25 for that jcrew cardi if I liked it.

J Crew has absolutely no resale value

Well at least you have a sense of humor. biggrin.gif

 

Look on eBay for some mid-level SF approved brands you like; you'd be amazed what you can get with $70 and some patience.
