    Hey Everybody,
    I'm looking for a sweater that is super thick knit and relatively plain. I found this one by Marc Jacobs that I like a lot, but it is a little more than I want to spend. I looked around for a good part of the day and couldn't find anything. The only criteria I have is that it have no logos. Any ideas?

    I was gonna say the marc jacobs stinky rat wool sweater which I think is basically the same sweater with a rat logo(probably removable) and much less of a price tag but since no logos, look towards jcrew and brands such as those, also i think trovata might have had a thick knit sweater like that also(try eluxury).

    Polo RL has done a similar sweater to that in cotton and wool every year for as long as I've been shopping. Sometimes you can even find one without the horsey (only in wool, I think).

    I bought a Marc Jacobs (mainline, not Marc) chunky sweater in either that or a similar cut with horizontal stripes last season, wore it twice, and donated it to Goodwill because it was already falling apart. So even if you can afford the pictured one, I don't think it is a smart buy.

    I'll have to look around for both the stinky rat and a logoless polo. I've never been able to wear anything with a Polo logo, it's too bad because I think they make a lot of quality stuff. For some reason I don't think I would mind a stinky rat logo, it seems a little less obvious/ubiquitous.

    yeah, my first thought was Polo. and if you can wait until Thanksgiving, you'll probably find it on sale. -Jeff
