V neck jumpers
« on: August 16, 2018, 02:39:32 PM »

Is it jist me or is it increasingly hard tae find jumpers wi' a decent depth ay "V" in the neckline.

Yin ay ma favourites has been devoured by moths n' lookin' at replacements most ay them seem tae be little better than a variation oan crew necks.


Or is ma double chin a lot bigger than ah thought it wis?

Recently , all my v-necks huv came fae TK Max , all merrino tae. Plus we are now coming into the time of year where their stock on this items will be on the increase .

Another good place to try is GAP as they seem to do a good turn in merino v-necks  . . 8)

Apparently , moths eating yer clothes is less likely now due to the fact that we usually have dry cleaned items in our wardrops and that puts them aff , apparently. . :-X

Have you looked at Uniqlo.

Always liked Lacoste v necks but not seen the latest ones.

Uniqlo quality is spot on.

Defo so, someone somewhere decided that deep v- necks are out of fashion (?). Not for us, though...  8) I've got a couple of Fred Perry from 2010-13 with a decent depth and a Lyle&Scott from 2008 as well..

Depends what you call a deep V. I like to see the open neck and then one fastened button only. Had a Zegna v neck in navy which really loved but it shrunk in the wash
Do it well

+1, I don't like the navel to show! There's a deeper alternative, anyway: a cardigan.

Welcome back to our man in Spain.  I hope your mission to find cooler climes in the north went well.   

Hasta luego.
