Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2085
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.
I'm trying to decide between the following and an SNS Stark. Beside Mr.Porter, I haven't found a Stark in my size or color, but will find it.
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.
