On The hunt For

A Cozy Cardigan

Vogue Paris

I’m not looking for a ladylike twin-set topper, I want a chunky, wrap-myself-up, coatlike cardigan. And I’ve been looking for a while now. TBC.

  • I am tempted by the Everlane new chunkie cardigan, but haven’t seen one in person. Was thinking it could be nice with the matching chunkie scarf — sort of a decontructed turtleneck look. I have liked my other pieces from Everlane, so maybe…the price is right.

  • I have noticed many fabulous and luxurious chunky sweaters this season and also love the look. But how do you manage when it is super cold or windy and need to wear a coat over a thick sweater? Is the solution to layer under? I adore the rich, bespoke, hand-knit look, but they can also be very heavy on the shoulders.

  • First, thank you for your website, which I love and read every day. Your taste is consistent with mine, and while I don’t always splash out for the high ticket items, I am always inspired by your posts. I think I can help today, though! How about this sweater? It’s quite easy to order from the website, even though they are shipping fr France, and I’ve been very pleased with my Eric Bompard sweaters.

  • A friend of mine recently wore this H&M Mohair Cardigan, and it looked amazing.

  • Look up New Form Perspective. NFP Gail Travis has marvelous designs. Great lines with many options for wearing. Shop in NYC and studio/shop in Beacon.

  • Hi Preston,
    Inspired by your post the other day on “uniforms”, I decided to really consider what is in my closet already and being conscientious when shopping. I came across a Theory Cashmere turtleneck in a store, and while I love the color it is a little over-sized, probably one size to big. It was between that and a fisherman’s sweater, which I do not have.What would be your recommendation between the two?

  • Amy, hard for me to say without seeing them–go with your gut. P

  • Ralph Lauren is always good for a chunky cashmere cardigan… I’m still wearing mine from seasons past…
