How to Buy a Cardigan

Before I start this article, I have some explanations to give you. The work provided for a year pays off and the blog starts to really take off: you were 5000 in August, 10,000 in December and, just two months later, already more than 15,000 to follow the blog. This beautiful growth is not an accident and will continue over the coming months so that the blog is firmly anchored in the top 5 French fashion blogs by June.

However, it brings a new imperative: provide those new to the blog of reference articles, be it on the style in general or in particular types of clothing.

You know, I also write on BonneGueule and it is something that I put aside for a very long time: why would I do on JamaisVulgaire an article on cardigans or winter coats while there Already has excellent quality on BonneGueule (some of which I have written)?

And yet they are indispensable foundations for a comprehensive blog on men’s fashion: I will deal with in the coming months, trying to bring real added value and a different perspective on these issues, without just going to make sub Articles badly summarized to the awkward style, as can be seen on some blogs.

You will find three main features of JamaisVulgaire: an analysis of your situation, shelled held (as you can see in the inspiration category) and especially the best selections of male blogosphere (from European e-shops, Japanese, Korean but Italian outlets, ebay, videdressing, collective dressing rooms and French and international forums).

Sorry for the digression (especially if you have just discovered the blog): all that to say that the themes of the next few months may seem common but the content, it will remain original.

We take advantage of the winter balances to start with the cardigans and the good questions to ask to choose the right type of cardigan.
Why? As your style will not make any good forward if you choose an even more cardigan in your wardrobe. It’s time to ask yourself how to pass safely to other things (you will not find 15 analyzes of looks with dumb cardigans united).

Obviously, the few links proposed are not affiliated.

History: The Accidental Invention Of The Cardigan (Not To Be Reproduced At Home)

“Invented” in the first half of the 19th century by James Brudenell, the Earl of Cardigan is the most malleable part of the male wardrobe.

And it was by a mere chance that it appeared: our famous count was too cramped in his sweater, so he took his saber and split it in two.
Today it would be called a method of raw, authentic and natural clothing coupled with inspiration
spontaneous. Some geniuses have said that by adding buttons, it would be even more convenient.
As this brave man with a wriggling mustache had the merit of winning his battles, his invention ended up being marketed around 1868.

Five essential criteria to choose your cardigan

The context

Wear A Cardigan At Work

If your company’s dress code is strictly formal (bank, finance or audit), then the cardigan will probably be too neglected and will appear to be only a vest ersatz.

This is a case where you feel a little like wearing a uniform at work.
And when we wear a uniform 5 days out of 7, we only ask one thing the rest of the time: to be able to express one’s personality and to differentiate oneself on one’s free time.
It is very likely that you do not want to be satisfied with the merino merino wool cardigan that everyone wears and that you want to go directly to big stitches or patterns.
If you are in a more relaxed environment (marketing, comm) then you can afford the
cardigan, it is only over a shirt or worn under a well-cut jacket.
Avoid in any case the original patterns type camo or color-block.

Your Morphology: Choose A Piece That Highlights You

A rough simplification that is often verified: the textures and patterns a little complicated will be more adapted to large sizes and cardigans united simple to small sizes.
Why ? For the simple and simple cardigans give more an impression of verticality, by extending the torso. While more imposing textures and patterns occupy space better on large templates.
Ask yourself what effect your cardigan should have on your physical
Two examples: cardigan Melinda Gloss gray border draws a fine vertical line on the torso lengthening my silhouette.

This cardigan Monsieur Lacenaire with the motifs Fair Isles adds horizontality to the shoulders: this can in the present case be a good thing because it easily adds to the build.
You can find it on MUSTHAVESWEATER.

What is a well-cut cardigan?

Remember, it was said at the beginning of the article that the interest of a cardigan was to highlight your torso by giving it a V shape. For that, the reasoning is the same as for a suit jacket : You must ensure that the opening goes down fairly low.
This good height is to close the button that stops 10 cm above the navel: exactly as for a suit jacket.
If you wear a shawl collar cardigan, it is also a matter of personality because these collars are made to be imposing, not to be short.

Is there really a good material for a cardigan?

Too often we have a Manichean view of materials: 100% wool, if nothing. It is only true party: both when one has the budget, and also when one is sure of his shot. That is to say that one is certain to carry often and for years what one is going to buy. In this case: aim at least 80% of wool and avoid as much as possible polyester and acrylic. Nylon is an exception in reasonable percentages (about 20%) as it helps to strengthen wool fiber.

By cons, you can not buy as if it was still the case. To find your style, you will inevitably make mistakes: as do 70% of the acrylic to 50 euros a 100% cashmere 400.
I spoke recently of this cardigan Aztec motifs and wooden buttons:

And I had a beautiful shield because of its composition, synthetic. But we must ask you: would you ever dare to buy this cardigan if it had been more than 300 euros with a nice Scottish wool or cashmere? Maybe not, because his style is special and 300 euros is a big sum.
On the other hand, by buying this model today, you can easily check if it fits well into your wardrobe and style without risking enormously. Then you will go with confidence to more expensive models.
Basically, you will have taken a measured risk, intelligently.

Identify the right synthetic clothing that will allow you to take these measured risks.
