I cant find any online or in stores. Are these sweaters out of style? Or am I an online nub.

They are everywhere, everyone does then, in almost each shop to find, from Fillipa K to Cucinelli.
Do you live in Iran maybe?

I'm in agreement with the others, cardigans abound both online and in stores. How much are you looking to pay? J. Crew has some nice cardigans, Uniqlo, Ralph Lauren, the list goes on..

$50 to $80.

But it depends if it is a high-priced item on sale.

Like if a $200 is on sale for $90, I will bite.

There's plenty of crap out there marked at 3x's the cost of a better quality item.

Zara has some nice ones too - cheap-ish and relatively slim. I bought one from them last week and wore it just yesterday in fact.

Merino wool. Though I think they also had cotton ones in a slightly different style too.

The Zara merino wool one I got was either £25 or £35 (can't remember) and it seems pretty decent merino and hasn't pilled at all after a couple of wears. Made somewhere in Tunisia apparently, which is probably why it's so cheap, but the cut is nice and the price can't be argued with.
