That's interesting, I was under the impression that shorter fibers pill more

I don't have any experience with the chunky cashmere versions of those cardigans, but I have the lambswool Lockie, lambswool Scott & Charters, and a few Iron Heart Ultra-Heavy Flannels.For those interested in a Cashmere Cardigan, Simon over at Permanent Style is getting another run of their 12-ply Anderson Sheppard cardigans in the coming weeks. Based on what I can find, they are a bit heavier than a 6-ply Drake's cardigan but the weave of the fabric is a little looser.
I am going back and forth on ordering an Iron Heart flannel as I continually go back to that piece from 2019 or a big chunky A&S cardigan. The cardigan is more rare and harder to get your hands on but at a current exchange rate in the $1K-$1.1K range, it is a big ask and my wife rolled her eyes. "For a f-ing sweater?!?"
Thank you for your comment, may I ask if you bought your usual size or sized-up, as they recommend?
San Francisco rarely gets below 50 degrees; he might have to run an air conditioner to get it cold enough.@dieworkwear - Just turn the thermostat to fit your fit. My life is leaning more casual these days and picked up a Flat Head flannel based on your rec. May end up snagging a 4-ply lambs wool cardigan and a flannel so I can cover both bases.
@Mercurio - I have a Kent Wang in white and it is decent for the $200 price. It is thick and warm but not overly so that it is hard to wear inside. I do not have experience in the S&C $400-$500 realm but felt Kent Wang was worth it
I had one of these in a ribbed cotton knit that was a great look on its own or under a jacket, but I wore it out.I've owned a few different full zip front cardigans that look as good with flannels and a dress shirt as they do a t-shirt and jeans. They have a somewhat sporty style that works with both ends of the spectrum. More so than the classic shawl collar buttoned cardigan IMO. I also own a Drake's shawl cardigan but I find I wear the full zips much more often due to their versatility.

Anyone have a favorite zip front cardy to recommend?
