    These colors work really well in my personal color palette but I think thats a pretty personal decision. I would use shirts underneath, sports coats and outerwear over to mix up the look.

    grey merino crew
    navy merino v neck
    cream/beige chunky shawl
    burgundy chunky cardigan

    I have a light grey linen blend Henley style sweater from BR that I love. It layers over casual shirts very well or can be my only layer.

    I would have a hard time choosing only four. But if I had to,

    grey or navy merino v neck
    massively chunky shawl cardigan
    chunky fisherman's crew
    lighter shawl cardigan for lounging

    I want to try linen and linen blend sweaters. I really need to visit a store with some and check them out as wool can be tool warm outdoors in the summer but sitting at a desk can get quite cold.

    Ok, Iíll play. This is what I have actually worn this winter. Turns out itís four sweaters:

    Navy v-neck merino
    Dark green v-neck merino
    Fair Isle crewneck
    Kick-ass cowichan with salmon pattern

    The cowichan is the least practical, but it gives me the most joy, so its the last one I would let go.

    That's a nice design, but unfortunately that's not a Cowichan sweater. Unlike commercial copies, Cowichan sweaters are hand-knit as one whole piece without seams. They've also restricted themselves to undyed wool for the last half-century or so. It's a combination of traditional Coast Salish weaving with sheep's wool and the decorative techniques of Fair Isle knitting.

    Navy lambswool cardigan with leather buttons; and 3 button up sweater vests to wear under sport coats, camel or charcoal, navy and probably denim blue.
