    Wore a cardigan for the first time today - why did I wait?

    In the spring I bought a cardigan after reading about them here for a while. But because it was spring, I never ended up wearing the cardigan. Until today.

    And wow. I'm surprised I waited so long. With the cooler fall weather the cardigan was nice and warm. So I am full on part of Camp Cardigan now thinking I need to pick up some more. Good times.

    I’d add the cardigan as one of the top 10 things I learned from dappered I didn’t anticipate liking as much as I do. It’s a great layering item with a lot of versatility. Especially in my office where the guys love blasting the ac

    Same boat here. Until reading Dappered, I never even considered them. Now, I have somewhere between five and ten in my wardrobe and look forward to cold weather so I can wear them.

    I bought a cheap cardigan from Old Navy to judge if I like cardigans and I really like them. See my post in confessions but it is something about the extra pockets. I hate having things in my pants pockets so get a lot of use out of shirt/jacket/cardigan pockets.

    I love my cardigans. Originally I thought they'd make me look old.
    I am old but I can't blame the cardigans for that.
    In fact I just bought two more. Shawl cardigans no less that I swore I'd never buy.
    Live and learn.

    The cardigan I bought is bike and chunky. I'm sure if you search the threads you can even pinpoint a photo of the one that I bought. Gotta say. I'm looking forward to purchasing my next one.

    So. Being new to the cardigan game, where you all suggest going to purchase them? And I'm talking the beefy kind of cardigans here. I guess they might be called shawl cardigans, as opposed to the slimmer versions worn by Mr. Rogers.

    I picked up a nice wool chore jacket from Jcrew (basically a cardigan) and love it! Nice, and cozy (medium thickness) and works well over a button down and tie.
