The Fisherman Knit - Next
Anyone that knows me will have seen I've been wearing this cable knit Fisherman style jumper a heck of a lot over the past few months. In fact I think it was in November when Next asked me if I'd like to choose an item to try out from their A/W collection, having seen this jumper a few weeks previous I headed straight for it. I addressed my circulation problem a couple of posts back so you can imagine that heavy layers like this one do wonders for me (I even unsophisticatedly wore it to one of my Christmas nights out). Next isn't somewhere I regularly shop but I have to admit that the quality of this piece is far superior to most of its competitors. The general fit was spot on for me too; I did go a size down from usual so it wasn't too long but then the fit was perfect. The traditional higher neckline is defiantly one of the highlights of the piece, which looks pretty nifty simply worn over a plain oxford.
As I said I've been wearing this every week for the past few months and it's been hard to pick a fault with it. But I did try though so here's a quick summery:
Pros - Wool blend construction // Nice fit // Interesting weave // Minimal bobbling // Very versatile
Cons - Can only been worn a couple of months a year // Wool % could have been slightly higher
