So what was supposed to be a few hours spent scouring for the sexiest, best value boots online turned into an entire Sunday evening deliberating over styles and even resorting to Twitter to ask your opinions, though I could think of worse ways of spending the last few hours of the weekend. For those of you who recommended the Bench Wyatt, well, that’s what I went with in the end. Who’d have thought a casuals brand that could, for me, previously only connote D4 girls’ asses in sweatpants would proffer such great footwear for men?
Anyway, being the impulsive wreck that I am when it comes to a spot of online shopping, the boots weren’t alone in my shopping bag, but rather enjoyed the good company of – amongst other items – a chunky cable crew knit from ASOS (yes, I know, I need to be curbing the addiction soon…), which I’m quite excited about but still not wholly satisfied with, since it was not my original choice. If you thought my hunt for boots was extensive, then you’ll not believe the time I spent trawling through teh interwebz to find something of a cable ilk to keep me insulated on top for the months ahead.
^ ASOS Cable Crew Knit AKA the one I bought
Never my first port of call, but offering the best jumper I’ve seen so far is this Tommy Hilfiger cricket jumper that is going for chips, but, hélas, won’t be delivered to Ireland because of oh you know that unwritten rule that everything bought in this country must be sold at an exorbitant price. And, naturally, the style isn’t carried in Europe. Fack.
^ Tommy Hilfiger Londonderry Cable Knit Sweater
The below was another option, although I decided against it because my deathly pallor probably wouldn’t be the most fitting accompaniment to its off white hue, and, well, because it’s called ‘Rugger’…
^ Gant Rugger Cable Knit
I wish I could say the below two were other options but, in all honesty, I’d have to relinquish my room and take to the streets for sleeping for a good month if I bought even one of these…
What jumper are you hunting for this season?
