    Men's Knitwear

    Payday is fast approaching and with the month's spend it's all about the knitwear.

    I'm after purchasing two or three items (depending on the cost of the individual items): a chunky cardigan, a fair isle style jumper and a funnel neck jumper. I have a budget of £400, so between £100 and £200 per item. My specifications for each item are as follows (here comes the OCD bit):

    Cardigan
    • natural fibres
    • S or XS in size
    • earthy tones (cream/oatmeal/fawn/beige/brown) although I'd consider a wonderful grey one
    • one (or close to) colour (not patterned)
    • preferably cable knit although I'd consider any chunky knit
    • buttoned not zipped
    • no hood
    • not funnel necked (and preferably not shawl necked but I'd consider an awesome one)
    Jumper
    • natural fibres
    • S or XS in size
    • fair isle, nordic pattern
    • main colour in autumnal tones
    • crew necked
    Funnel Neck
    • natural fibres
    • S or XS in size
    • earthy tones or grey
    • chunky knit (cable/waffle etc.)
    • plain or some fair isle/nordic patterning (but not over the top)
    • no buttons on the funnel
    If I had unlimited funds/or these came in my size/were available this is what I'd buy to give you an idea of what I'm after:






    (Actually this one is in my size and budget so a serious consideration.)

    All help is much appreciated as I feel I scoured the web and come up with very little. It's the sizing that's generally the problem as smaller sizes are inevitably sold out of the things I like.

    Get the YMC one, it's lovely! As to sizing, I have the same problem. S and XS are always out of stock.

    After a quick search I only found this rollneck from Paul Smith. Not quite what you were looking for, but in budget and size.

    The M. Griffoni one looks awesome Sam. It has some rip detailing that's not for everyone though.

    Huh, didn't spot that. That is a bit niche, I'm not big on distressing.

    Thanks guys. There' several I like in those (the Griffoni except for the distressing, the Gant and Ralph Lauren pieces, but I have things so similar already).

    While on The Corner site I did find this though, which is almost £100 off and just the thing I was after.

    Oh and I found these at Burton of all places. 100% wool for £60 and £65 respectively. I think those are a steal:
