Ralph Lauren Merino Wool Full Zip Sweater – $79.99
Holy crap. A sweater that’s on sale which isn’t a half zip, but instead a full zip cardigan. (Half zips can make the lower half of your torso look unusually wide. Stick to crew, v-neck, or cardigans)
It’s Ralph Lauren so of course it’s on the pricey side, but for a luxury merino wool sport-inspired cardigan, this is about as good of a deal as you’ll find Advertised as having a bit of stretch, it looks to have a good slim cut, the double snaps at the hem and collar are a nice touch, and the zipper itself is hidden by a small placket.
Is the upper left chest shield logo a little aristocratic? Yeah… a bit. But it’s Ralph Lauren. It’s not like a big fake American Eagle or Abercrombie and Fitch logo. These guys have been doing the upper crust sportswear thing for awhile, and this sweater is proof that they know what they’re doing.
Also available in red. Most sizes (M-XL) available. But they most likely won’t last for long.
