    I have a question about how a v-neck cardigan should fit. I just got an AA one to see how I like the look on myself. It fits perfectly except the top of the V is kinda far from my collar on the sides. It just looked odd when I had it on. It may be because I have broad shoulders. Should a v-neck always hug the collar of a button down shirt?

    I felt the fit of my AA one was like that too, so I never wear it. I think it cost me like $8 or something :p

    I have this one, from Nom De Guerre. Love the colour, weight, and how it fits.

    The material is really cheap and is more akin to a heavy t-shirt than a sweater, but the construction seems decent enough. To be honest, I can see the AA cardi being more popular with people trying to look trendy than anyone concerned with wanting a quality sweater.

    I've had the same experience with AA cardigans regarding the fitting on the shoulders. bluemax is right about the material, it's not very thick/warm, which is actually perfect for me.

    This is becoming a problem these days.

    If I could afford them, I'd pick up a few of the Thom Browne designed Brooks Brothers Black Fleece cardigans. They're beautiful.

    I really like these, and the price is great. Quality I'm sure is mediocre, but I'm not expecting to keep em for 20 years.

    a guy at my work bought the white one w/black stripes. it's pretty awful imo, almost not worth $20...mediocre would be a step up...but it'd work fine as a daily beater, maybe to paint the house in.
