    I donโ€™t own a wool sweater. I have a Patagucci fleece or two, plus half dozen other fleeces.

    Kirklands merino wool from Costco. Labels, meh.
    It was for in office when the A/C got out of control, not WFH.

    I go with a bit of fat and communal heating, but that is probably at odds with all my pro renewables posting, so is a bit hypercritical.

    Just get the wool for the other half and encourage to take up knitting. Preferably a cardigan like Starsky used to wear in Starsky and Hutch....

    Wonโ€™t get many cashmere jumpers under ยฃ100 and itโ€™s not bad quality. Big range of colours.

    They do a cheaper lambswool too.

    Classic organic do a bunch of nice sustainable jumpers of cotton and wool.

    Else try only & sons, they do some nice zipped and non-zipped structure jumpers

    Arlen do really nice double faced jumpers for ยฃ65 they look comfy

    Honestly threads the website isnโ€™t bad for this stuff.

    Good for just getting across more shops for what you want
  • John Smedley cashmere blend.
    F'ing expensive, but oh so nice.

    https://johnsmedley.com/uk/malone-aw20

    Luckily the factory is just down the road and they have a factory shop, so I like to take advantage once or twice a year.

    A ribbed Hugo Boss number that I paid a fortune for... about 15years ago. Still looks brand new.

    Yep, I had the same issue with a couple I had.
  • I like cable knit in which case M&S and John Lewis do nice ones. Occassionaly places like Crew have something good, or Ralph Lauren (not the ultra heavy fisherman ones!)

    If you want to spend big money check out Brora

    Hey that's a cool website! All the good bits of stitch fix but without the auto-ordering (though I suspect the point of stitch fix is to push past the male unwillingness to experiment with clothes)

    Ive picked up a nifty dark red Rip Curl one from the inevitable-in-cornwall surf shop sale.

    I may ask Father Christmas for a swankier one though if the season life leaves me

    Is this like one of those questions contestants used to ask on Blind Date?

    I'm eternally on the market.... ๐Ÿ™„

    No,its more a realisation that living in "outdoor wear" and Chamonix Suits (Gore-Tex) aren't so appropriate out side of a ski resort...(and it's cold)

    This is what I'd really like but...the price!!

    I have one of their early down jackets. Still excellent 15 years later although the elastic went in the draw cord.
