    I think I might go the MTM Inverallan route. Can't beat a made to measure cardi for 133 pounds shipped (~$217).

    I just have to find out if they can do any style in their entire lineup or only the select styles.

    Did you buy it used? Or did you get it at Len Druskin Outlet?

    I bought it used, there's a thrift store on the University campus that receives some good items from time to time. Does the Len Druskin in Edina sell this line? I hadn't heard of the store/outlet, but I might head down there soon to check out the rest of the stuff. Truthfully, I haven't taken in much of the stores in the area. Maybe that's a good thing, since I can't afford much outside of the sales bins.

    I'm not sure if the Galleria store does or not. The Outlet is across the street in Southdale Mall. Go in thru the movie theater enterance. I thought I saw something similar to your sweater there. I know it was chunky, but I don't remember if it was a cardigan or a pull-over. There also a Len Druskin Man downtown and another len outlet nearby.

    Anyone have any idea where I can find this Cardigan. I contacted the original poster but he was unsure.

    This is me wearing a belted Shawl Collar Cardigan I recently picked up from the Polo Ralph Lauren Store here in Dallas. It's 79% Wool, 17% Lamb's Wool, and 4% Al Paca...with leather covered buttons. It's structured more like a jacket, but it's soft enough and crushable enough that I would place it on the higher end of the cardigan spectrum vs a true jacket. Great with just a T-shirt for a cool look but warm feel or great when you layer a long sleeve shirt or thin sweater underneath when its a little colder outside.

    It was originally $895 but I got it on sale for $266 plus tax after a couple of mark downs. I picked it up on Dec 27th 2009, so you can probably still get your hands on one. Its called the Bedford ES Jacket. By the way, this piece is not on the Polo website, but I saw it in two different Polo stores within the past two weeks.

    Is it a jacket or a sweater?

    I would consider it a tweener. Definitely more substantial than a sweater but not quite a jacket. If you want a "Sweater" that can truly handle 30-40 degree temperatures...this is it.

    I think you need a collared shirt with that jacket/cardigan or it ends up looking like a bathrobe.
