So who makes the best sweaters?

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I am a very slim guy with about a 35" chest and finding a well-fitting sweater is a bitch! Who makes sweaters with the highest arm-holes and slimmest bodies and arms?

Personally I like Banana Republic's sweaters, but I'm no expert. I don't have a lot of sweater buying experience across a lot of vendors, just know that BR is pretty reliable for fit and style, fairly slim and sophisticated and contemporary.

I'm slim, but not quite as slim as the OP.

The quality is very iffy, but the FCUK sweaters I've tried were very slim fitting. Moving upmarket, Agnès B also does knitwear for skinny guys.

Ha ha, sure, if you've got several hundred bucks to spend on a v-neck, yeah, top choice. I think there are more practical alternatives that still look good, frankly.

I am trying to find a Robot Chicken Sweater that one of the writers in the Season 2 DVD had. It will probably suck, but... its Robot Chicken, and I still want it!

it doesn't get any better than jil. margiela is great, but it all fits too large for me even in the smallest size. jil in a 44 is perfect though.

Margiela is pretty sweet and I probably prefer it over my Jil knits. BoO's sweaters are good? They're last couple seasons of knits have been pretty shitty. Haven't seen any of the new stuff.

Quality wise? Loro Piana. Personally, I like NDG and Wings and horns. XS wings and horns should be fine on you.

you're not going to get a good answer with that question. What style are you looking for? solid jersey knit v-necks? chunky? cashmere, cotton, wool, etc? narrow it down.
