    Going to London on business, where's the best place to shop for knitwear, specifically v-neck jumpers?

    Such a vague question can only merit an equally vague response. If you are more specific, however...

    Try Pringle on New Bond St, and Brora on Kings St. in Chelsea.

    Also N.Peal, Berk and House of Cashmere at Burlington Arcade.

    What's vague about it? Did I have to clarify "Lilac, Yellow-Dotted V-Neck jumpers with a skull on the back"? Thank you for the other poster to have cracked my awesome post puzzle and actually replying...

    You're welcome.

    Smedley is another good suggestion, if you like merino.

    Uniqlo has particularly good QPR.

    I don't think you'll get much help with a chip on your shoulder, old boy.

    Don't forget Westerway & Westerway [near the British Museum]. Excellent prices and a wide selection

    Their website says the London store closed in May 2003.

    N.Peal (Burlington Arcade), Uniqlo (J+ etc), John Smedley... I would recommend these three.

    Thank you for the suggestions!

    Uniqlo prices are rock botton, 10£ for a lambswool sweater? Are they "wear and throw away" items, otherwise how are those prices possible?

    Small Chinese children I suspect. Their lambswool isn't great but their cashmere is pretty good and the merino wool extraordinary for the money.

    Turnbull & Asser (ground floor) and Ballantyne (lower ground floor) at Harrods. In previous sales, cashmere v-neck sweaters as low as £80, £100 for T&A.
