    Someone posted a few Dries sweaters a short while back.

    I picked up this one and it is amazing:

    I probably went back and tried the Dries jumper with metallic threads about three times. Came close to buying it each time, but could not get there. It looks better on screen. IRL, it looks rather matronly.

    Speaking of dries I got this from our esteemed colleague Parker.

    I have another version of the metallic thread sweater and while it looks pretty nice it doesn't age that well. Pity as Dries sweaters are usually his best offerings if you,re looking for durable/still nice after a couple seasons.

    I have had mixed experience with Dries' knits. One pilled mercilessly after one season of moderate wear. Others have held up reasonably well.

    Kind of meh imo, the pattern and colours have that 'grandma's self-knitted couch pillow cover' vibe.
