    Which cardigan should I get?

    I'm a 30 year old Asian male, who goes to the gym a lot so I'm pretty fit. Normally I wear a black v-neck with dark blue jeans. Sometimes I add a dress shirt or switch it up to a white v-neck. Would love to add a cardigan to my wardrobe. Which ones do you think looks more dapper with my style?

      Neither. The polyester is crap. I just purchased this from Amazon and it’s phenomenal. It’s available in a wide variety of colors so I’m sure you’ll find something you like.

        I was in the anti-cardigan camp for a long time. Then last fall I bought one from Simon's on sale. Wow! Totally changed my mind. I am now firmly in camp cardigan! I know it is not on your list BUT I bought a cardigan from L.L.Bean. Awesome. Great quality. Super warm and comfy. That is perhaps the only reason I am looking forward to fall. The chance to wear my cardigans again. Well that and my boots too.

          as a 30 yo asian male myself, i'm a fan for hte darker colours. I would also recommend Suitsupply cardigans.

            So far, it doesn't look like many folks have helped you narrow it down between the two you've actually picked out!

            It's all down to personal preference, of course. But I like the darker one (#1). It'll fit in well with the dark colors you talk about wearing often, and when you wear a white V-neck or dress shirt it'll help carry through the same vibes.

              darker one is more versatile. That herringbone pattern will stick out. Its a nice sweater, but it wouldn't be my first.

              100% poly is something to look out for but if it feels nice, dont be afraid. A lot of people dismiss synthetic materials immediately but some modern synthetics can be great. They can be crap too. Im just saying, you dont need to immediately be like "to heck with synth" anymore.

                I suppose it matters whether or not the purpose of the cardigan is to keep warm or just for style. Polyester (and even just cotton) aren’t particularly warm, even with thick sweaters. This is where wool (and cashmere) are king.

                  eh. Kind of old info. Polyester can be very warm, and water resistant. A good wool is still better, but saying poly is just for looks is an outdated statement. As with anything, it does depend on the execution of course. Its possible to have basic wool that isnt as warm as the more advanced poly applications. But yeah, you cant just say that poly isnt warm, across the board. An old navy poly? because of the price point and the companies target audience, its probably safe to assume this specific one isnt the warmest sweater though.
