    Love cardigans. more comfortable than a blazer and more suitable for casual occasions, but still offers that visual layering effect.

    I am tempted to buy a cardigan from Northern Watters (Canadian Company). They make sweaters for the company Epaulet which is a pretty expensive store compared to the Dappered norms. While they have shawl collar cardigans, I for some reason want one of their belted sweaters with contrasting belt.

    I love cardigans! Shawl collar ones can be a bit more casual alternative to a blazer too.

    I was tempted to pick that up, too, over the weekend cuz my local store had it for 40% off, but half the reviews mention that it pills like crazy. I'm ok with dealing with some pilling and have sweater shavers, but sometimes I feel like it's just not worth dealing with it all the time if it's especially bad.

    It fit really well and was a great mid weight/color and I didn't find it itchy. I especially loved that combo shawl/notch collar.

    What's your experience so far with it?

    Oh, I will have to keep that in mind! I haven’t had any pilling yet but I’ve only worn it a couple of times.

    I wore cardigans 10-20 years ago. The problem with them now is that I'm too old to look stylish in them. Instead, I just look.... old. Weird how that works.

    There's an inflection point for cardigans and looking old. It's when gray hair % > 50.

    I have one from Scott and Charters that I got last year from NMWA. Nice, chunky, and soft. They just restocked all colors a couple of weeks ago for this year. Slightly less expensive is an option from Kent Wang. Seen shots of them on instagram and SF. Would've picked it up if not for the S&C I already have. I think he sold out the last round but is taking preorders for restocking at the end of the month.
