    An appreciable drop in quality but on sale what about Gap? Their fits are very, very hit or miss for me personally but I am a tough size (big, broad in the chest but short)

    Lands End?

    Sweaters for this fall

    So I stopped by several men's clothing stores today browsing for sweaters and here's what I found after some extensive trying-on.

    Express: I really didn't like their material. Even on their "higher end" merino sweaters, it just felt like a lot coarser of a weave than I would like. The fit was trim and solid, though, and their prices are good.

    Banana Republic: The V dipped pretty low. Deal breaker for me. The fit was OK, but I had to size down to get them to fit well which, with my arm length, means dry-clean-only for me. Don't know if other people felt the same way on the fit as I am a slim guy.

    Brooks Brothers: Overpriced if not on sale, but, as in the past, I really like some of their non-crew non-v options. Wish they still made their henley-style sweaters. Those rocked.

    J Crew: Their non-slim sweaters were really mediocre in fit for me. Again, I had to size down, so again worries about the sleeve length if I wash them. The quality was really, really solid though. The V dipped a little lower than I'd like, but nothing awful. Their "slub" slim fit sweater fit. Perfectly. I can not possibly overstate this.

    What do others think? I'm really leaning toward the J Crew sweaters, but I'm a little frustrated by their non-factory price tag and I'm loathe to go the factory route. Time to wait for another sale, perhaps.
