It all started with a silly idea of getting a new one. I had a great, soft wool v-neck sweater from Club Monaco in a pale powder blue. It looked great and I wore it out, literally. Sadly while it served me well it's gone on to a better place so I need a new one. So J.Crew where is it?Another fantastic review! "Thanks!" again to J.Crew Guy In Canada for his in-depth look at the all these pieces!
Checked out cashmere options #85984; yeah there are fourteen different colours, none in that damn powder blue colour. Looked over at my good friend merino #93735 and it was almost there in faded peri, but too washed out and not quite there. I even tried cotton-cashmere, but nope not even close. So how about it J.Crew, can you knit up a nice little v-neck for me in cashmere powder blue?
And while we're at it here are a few more things you need to make for me. Everyone has or knows of the infamous J.Crew roll neck. I've had one in a denim blue wool (who knows where that went?) and currently I have a wool one in an athletic grey, but what I really want is a roll neck in merino wool in some good colours, like a dark rich forest green and possibly a dark cream, say oatmeal. Since you're knitting the cashmere one in powder blue you might as well make the roll neck in merino.
The Ludlow is almost perfect #18615. But how many charcoal grey pairs does a guy need? Currently I have three, I think I'm good, but I'd like some more colour options say a darb olive green, or a rich chocolate brown? Besides most guys have navy and grey and may want a new colour too.
So thanks J.Crew, let me know when you you've finished stitching those up.
What are your thoughts on J.Crew's color palette for Men? Do you own any of their more colorful sweaters? If so, please share with us your review. :)
