What am I wearing 3.24.13

Haven’t done a “what am I wearing” post in over a month, so I thought I’d snap some quick photos today in light of the beautiful weather.

Today, I wore a fairly interesting sweater that I haven’t worn in months. It’s by Burberry, and I got it on clearance a while back. Back then, I thought since it was 100% cashmere, made by Burberry, an amazing color, and on massive sale, why not?

Turns out I couldn’t get used to the weird neck shape, since it skirted the line awkwardly between V neck and shawl collar. Thus, the sweater ended up taking a back seat behind my normal shawl collar cardigans and V neck sweaters.

However, taking it out from the back of my closet, I realized it really didn’t look that bad. In fact, the design was kind of refreshing, since it’s not as cookie-cutter as my other knits. I paired the sweater with some dark tan chinos, a lightly patterned white shirt, and brown leather boots. Check it out:

I have to say, the feel of cashmere on the skin is pure pleasure. If you don’t already have a 100% cashmere sweater, I would highly suggest getting one. Looks and feels like a million bucks.

Alright fellas. Till next time.
