    I know a few here have that raf sweater but I can't get behind it. The pattern and and lack of ribbing is what's bothering me I think.

    i hate to say it but the sweater's fit is exceedingly slim, at least for my tastes.

    bomber is sorta generic for an expensive Balenciaga jacket. makes me think marc jacobs for some reason

    sweater looks good / is fine, although some ppl disagree with the lack of ribbing i think it looks good especially in your jacket pic. however, the bomber really isn't doing it for me, either size up or get it in black and size up.

    Sweater looks really good with the coat, by itself makes you look a little lumpy. I think to pull off the sweater alone you really need to have the body of a model.

    Oh my, a hat. Haven't worn one since my childhood. But my growing forehead is asking for one...

    I don't get the lack of ribbing being a point against the sweater, everyone says that but who cares abut ribbing? Anyways, the sweater does look a bit slim and gives you an hourglass look. However! It does look great under that jacket, which how I normally wear mine.

    its so comfy isn't it

    Don't think anyone would have noticed the ribbing had you not mentioned it and provided a zoomed picture. It's a complete non issue!!

    It's very comfortable despite how slim it is, you're right.

    Sometimes I wake up at night gasping for air thinking about the Raf ribbingless sweater. Its fairislesque expanse bound by no limits creeps and crawls into my mind and fills me with deep dread and foreboding.

    A malign and particular suspension or defeat of those fixed laws of Nature which are our only safeguard against the assaults of chaos and the daemons of unplumbed space.
