My boyfriend never dresses up or wears nice clothes, but he mentioned that he’d actually like a merino wool cardigan. I checked some of the places where I’d normally buy my own cardigans, but not liking the men’s selection. Any recommendations?

I wear a lot of sweaters, and I’m on the “stodgy” side (despite being 30).

I’ve found that merino is thinner than I prefer… Ends up being a little clingy. I like cashmere, but it’s very expensive unless you buy the cheap stuff, which basically disintegrates. If a cashmere sweater is under $500, it’s probably disposable. Scottish Cashmere is the only stuff worth buying.

For that reason, I prefer lambswool. A bit heartier than Merino at about the same prices, and more durable than Cashmere.

Recently I’ve had good luck at Woolovers.


O'Connell's lambswool or merino cardigans are from Scotland and are supposed to be fantastic quality. Also check out Drakes

John Smedley


Charles tyrwitt does a lot of merino wool clothing and a reasonable price as well


nordy, bloomingdale’s



Brooks bros for more mature perceptions superdry for younger more casual vibes perhaps?

I would rec. Suitsupply - they have some really nice merino wool and cashmere cardigans at <200 - great quality for the price IMO

Look at Mr Porter and search for “merino”: a lot of them will be more than that but some might be in that price point.

Going to defer to you on this. I’ve only ordered a specific brand that I know how to size in from ssense, so have not had to deal with returns from there


I’m the same way, except when I go to work or go to client haha. I go for nicer cardigan like Ted baker or Hugo boss, but I don’t wear those very often. It depends on what he likes and his size (the 2 brands I mentioned are nice for slim Asian body style like mine)


Amazon has some good brands if you look carefully

Thank you all for these suggestions! Looks like I have a lot of research to do :)

idk but just came to say you sound like a lovely partner :)

As, thank you 🤗

In other instances I've also explained the meaning of life is to love sacrificialy without telling them the source. I feel guilty hiding the Truth. How do you speak the Truth without being fired?
