I've been looking into getting a plain, v-neck cashmere sweater, and began pondering the issue of color. As sweaters are soundly outside my regular wardrobe system, I don't have any strong theories about what color to get. My first thought is navy blue, but I like the idea of a light-colored cashmere, as that appears to make the most of the fiber. A light beige or even a cream seem very nice in theory, but I'm not sure how comfortable I'd be wearing such an expanse of a light color (I prefer a classic, not slim, fit). Also, I hate to consider it, but my skin might clash. Green is out of the question: I intend to wear the sweater casually under my waxed cotton Barbour, which is olive green. As some of you know, I hate purple. Light blue is pretty, but won't work over my OCBDs. A rust or a dark brown could be nice, but that's getting dark again. Thoughts? Oh, and the standard disclaimer applies: I've already decided and, though valued, your opinions will have no effect.
