    @Synthese, don't really have anything that hasn't already been suggested. Scott & Charters and The Armoury are nice for that CM kind of cardigan. Drake's are made by the same people who make for The Armoury, but they just use different materials. Inverallan is nice. I also like RRL, as you know. Eidos is good for those belted styles. I don't think that style works on everyone, but I think you could pull it off.

    Kanata is good for cowichans. Self Edge has a cowichan-style cardigan this season from Chamula (I suppose not technically a cowichan since it's made in Mexico and not by Cowichan people?).

    I also like these cowichan-inspired styles with stand up collars. Number (n)ine had one in their "My Own Private Portland" collection years ago. Sold out, but you can find the (less attractive) black and gray version right now on Rakuten.

    Quetzal Saunders also recently posted this on his IG, which I thought looked nice. Would love to get something like this, actually, but I don't know who makes this one.

    If you're open to that stand up collar style, Inis Meain also made a really nice one back in the day. NMWA carried it, but I don't know where you can get them now. A little more CM-y than the ones photographed above, but nice.

    Oh, and obviously SNS Stark for the same sort of style, but you already know that one.

    Walmart is really stepping up their streetwear game these days.

    There seems to be a size L of that (or something similar) in brown on Grailed right now.

    Might also be worth checking Walmart for jawnz now.

    I'm not the biggest fan of Aran nowadays. It's just not versatile enough for year round wear given the pattern lends itself more to the FW months

    Are you really wearing chunky cardigans in the summer though?

    Probably not, just in my head that I am associating the pattern to a very specific look, which I do not wear. At most I would probably buy something like a Aran cable knit sweater (Inis Meain had one actually this past SS in light weight cotton I believe, "beach sweater") in the typical off white or cream but even then I'd feel like I opened too many J. Crew emails or look through a lot of Land's End catalogs. I had two great knits with similar motifs from Patrik Ervell and even then during the winter I'd only feel like wearing it during the holidays and feel out of place for everyday wear. Maybe one too many Christmas movies and seeing people in the snow, I find it hard to identify with...I dress in solid colors nowadays where any pattern is naturally part of the fabric.

    El bert has the n(n) in the white-brown colorway for sale on the SF Classifieds. The listing is active, but hasn't been bumped in over a year. So I am not sure whether it is still available.

    ^Those are actually cool. In contrast to the SS17 version which have tiny lighthouses on them for some reason

    Anyone got a line on the Valentino scarves from last season? Camo one (no stars), RRP around $500? I forgot to grab one at sale from End.
