    Acceptable or unacceptable?

    Do they make you look like a grandad or are they now trendy, comfortable day wear for the man about town?

    In this time of uncertainty are cardigans about to make a comeback?

    It's still summer here. Not even time to wear tee-shirts yet.

    Apparently, Tartan is going to make a big comeback this autumn/winter. David Beckham has been seen wearing tartan so it must be true.

    definitely trendy

    no question



    also . . . i buy magazines at the news stands, and some of them are printed in different countries, there are different trends/styles in different countries (to a degree), and in the U.S.A. it can be the same but in different cities



    also tartan has been in style for a while now

    i own several and they range from light cashmere to chunky, cable knit wool. i love to sport them around the house when it's rainy or particularly cold out (you know - those cold los angeles winters). i say, if you want to wear one, do it. party hardy with your cardy! ;)

    also, it all depends on what style, fabric, and print/pattern any clothing is made out of

    just because cardigans are back in style, does NOT mean you cant still look like a "grandad"

    Yes, you see that would swamp my "look".

    What about these new trendy cardigans with the V-shape look?

    Oh One did not know they ever went out of fashion.

    What do you get if you cross a sheep with a kangaroo?

    muchmorethanmuscle saidI doubt it as he lives in Fort Lauderdale. That's one of the warmest areas of the country.


    Well, you know if you live here long enough, the way you experience temperature changes. When it gets below 75, the rich old gals break out their furs.

    Not a good look mate. Hope you don't think you are going out looking like THAT. Go back and try again. This time, turn the lights on.

    Why would you wear a cardigan when you could be wearing a sweater vest? icon_biggrin.gif

    Nice, classic looking but $250.70 a pop! That's a bit much for a sweater in my book.


    Well you would be buying cashmere, which is very expensive, so this $275 isn't out of the question. It should last a long time though. I've been planning on getting one, but not a cardigan.

    They were all the rage in Europe last year, and living in NY everyone seems to have one here as well. I've found quite a few that I enjoy. www.topman.com has a pretty good selection...

    cardigans are still in style. They definitely aren't a trend item. Its a piece of clothing that will always look classic and clean if it is paired with the right things..

    To be trendy now, cardigans look really sharp with a v neck and some type of long chain. Make it work boys.
