    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

I dislike cardigans with pockets. Am I wrong?

    IMO cardigans look like old people sweaters and pockets only make it worse.

    Four pockets on a four-ply sweater strikes me as just about ideal.

    I hope you all got that the WRONG! was tongue in cheek. As with most things, go with what you prefer. Me, I like pockets. On the cardigan, the pockets also serve as useful storage for a pipe and tobacco.

    3 year necro, but for a reason...

    I've only recently come around to the idea of a "chunky" type cardigan, especially a shawl collar; and finally put my finger on the fact that I have a subconscious dislike for pockets on them.

    Take this Dover by John Smedley. It's fantastic, just what I want, except those bags err, pockets, hanging off the front. They look OK when it's in a lying flat, catalog type of pic but as soon as it's worn, they just look sad. I understand it's a classic look, and I wish I could just get over it, but they bug me...

    Pockets from the side, or some where they are jetted (ie hidden) can be ok, but not the ones like this...
