Do you like my new cardigan? It has a hood.

    Found it at the flea market. Brand new. All pure new wool. Locally made.

    It has a hood.

    Is it cool?

    I also found some almighty, tank built boots. Brand new midnight blue cords. A very nice Three tone grey pinstriped shirt, and a classic coat.

    Less than €50 for the whole outfit!

    That's a very impressive flea market you have there. Cardigans with zips and even a wee metal pull-tab, though? Can't decide whether that suggests small child or very old geezer. :D

    So, yes, it's cool in that it makes a statement of "too cool to care". :D

    I don’t like it. Sorry Stan. Those upside down scout emblems look completely random.

    It's a French anti-monarchist design. They're upside down fleurs de lis

    I think it might be ok.
    But maybe not with some mental blue cords

    Do you know what, I've been familiar with that design since I was a 9 year old cub and I never realised that it's a fleur de lis :facepalm:

    Well, to be fair, now, I doubt that Stanley Edwards spends a big lot of time shouting "dyb dyb dyb" and practising his Grand Howl.

    Oh surely not. It is, after all, a good and warm cardigan. Or a Ceredigion.

    No, I imagine it's more of a whine

    I have just discovered that the cardigan has thumb holes in the cuffs. You can pull the baggy sleeves down and use the cuffs as gloves :cool:

    :D

    It is perfect for an artist working outdoors in February.

    Anyway, you are out voted by the ladies. I'm afraid ladies votes count double on these matters.

    I used to have a lovely button up cardi. I think I bought it abroad, or perhaps was given it, I rarely see any in UK shops, but then I rarely go shopping also ... which might explain it :)
