The Look for Less | Pendleton Shawl-Collar Cardigan
November 7, 2013
I have a serious weakness for men's sweaters. Perhaps it's my abnormally long arms or just a propensity to be cold (all. the. time.), but for me there's nothing like cuddling up inside a roomy men's sweater when the weather starts to turn. Color and pattern that pops amidst the dreariness is a bonus. And who can dismiss the mother of all cozy patterned cardigans: Pendleton.
With even vintage "The Dude" versions, complete with holes and stains, going for up to $500 on eBay, you know you can't even consider Pendleton without some serious budget to invest. While one of these sweaters will likely remain on my 'ultimate list' for a lifetime, I could be perfectly happy with something equally cozy and colorful, but for a lot less. This one I spied at H&M the other day is thick, warm and in a larger size, could double as a sweater coat. Sold!
