    Howdy,

    I'm looking for a cheap dark brown cardigan (wool or cotton) or a cheap vest of the same style. I'd like for the knot of a tie to show and a little bit of the blade. I'm a medium or a 39/40. Do you have one or a suggestion of where I can find one on the internet?

    Sadly, it is for a late summer costume so the lighter the material the better. Mind you, if it is cheap and good, I lean back towards a wool cardigan.

    Etsy and eBay have disappointed. Found one on Esty that was almost a buy, except for the unfortunate pilling.

    Thanks.

    By the way, when I said gorge, I meant buttons high. I didn't mean I wanted lapels.

    UniQlo used to have a brown merino cardigan. I don't know if they still do.

    And thanks again,
    They have a decent cotton option for about 37 bucks..v-neck could be higher, but it is an option.
    If someone is a XXL, they have some great 10 buck offers.
