    ugly?


    Sorry, couldn't resist. There's probably a technical name out there, I just call them Christmas sweaters

    Thanks Sanguis. You've been very helpful in both my recent threads.

    Ich-Dien - Any other shops that would sell this for cheaper? Maybe RL?

    This was very in this past winter, which means that prices are going to be artificially inflated. Of all of the ones done, I thought Burberry did it best.

    It's called a Fair Isle pattern.

    Popular in the 1920s- 30s in the US as well as in Britain.
    Uncommon in the US for the last 70 years.

    Something that "unique" could only come from BB.

    It's called unfair style.

    Agreed. I think Burberry and RL make the best ones that don't have oversized patterns. I saw this in the Burberry store and really liked it, but in the end, I didn't want to blow $800.

    Unless you luck into one on closeout from a prior year, Louise Irvine (the first link, above) will make one for you for considerably less than any sane retailer would charge. And it will be the real thing.
