    I'm looking to kop some quality sweaters and want to buy some with interesting patterns, designs, textures, etc.

    Maybe not this exactly but I want a heavy wool sweater:

    I like the heathered look of this B. Son piece, if I found a crewneck like this my life would be complete.



    What is this style called?

    My favorite is my Acne cashmere/cotton assymettrical vneck from i think s/s07 (maybe 06). I wore it in a waywt or two before. Really soft, fits me great, great color on it and the assymetric design is done well

    Fuck you. That sweater is dope. Much better than some of the lame/boring margiela knits out there. I have a margiela charcoal vneck knit that's nice and all but doesn't hold a candle to the old acne one. Margiela makes some nice knits but there are very few of them from each year worth a shit. I still enjoy my cloak fishnet one on occasion. Looks great worn under jackets. It's hard to find badass knits though. I want more. A lot of the ones i see from designers are just BR sweaters with better materials. You should wear all of your knits layered for the nyc party. Then i can steal them for when i become fat in my old age

    To be honest, two of my favorite sweaters are my Italian merino cable-knit pullovers from Banana Republic. They're super thick and soft, and fit pretty slim.

    The YMC one from 2-3 years ago is actually pretty nice. Warm wool. Pretty dark green color, interesting details but still really subtle. My knit collection is real low though the acne asymmetric one wool acne navy cardi margiela charcoal vneck (slightly distressed) cloak mesh black/white ymc dark olive ummm..... i think that's all. i have a raf by raf patchwork sweatshirt that's nice for bumming around need more cool knits. Not as interested in the plain cash vnecks.

    Jil knits are wonderful. I really love Raf knits too, more for the styling though, quality and hand aren't at the level of Jil from what I've seen. Junya is always great, though it's a pretty specific aesthetic I think it works for most SF members. I like some Givenchy knits, quality varies though IMO. Bottega is another luxe brand that makes nice knits if you are up for shelling out serious dough.

    Acne does good stuff, I think Filippa K is great on sale, if you're really boring APC is fine on sale too. Hyden Yoo does some respectable knits for the price range, styling is usually alright. Haven't actually handled any Mjolk knits but all I've heard is great things. Patrik Ervell is hit or miss for me, some of the knits are worth the price, others I think could be substituted for Banana Republic stuff. Lindqvist and Carin Wester do cool stuff with their knits, quality is not astounding but styling and construction are always interesting and unique.
