Cardigans, simple, useful and sorta manly in a librarian kinda way...discuss.

#1
I've been out for quite a while and have found a fondness for all things that arn't dpm'd, green, etc. I now boast 3 cardigans (not a zip in sight) in my wardrobe, anyone beat that?

Nope. Not even a pipe or a dressing gown. But I do own a pair of slippers (birthday present) and a Labrador. I use the slippers for taking the Labrador out to empty himself.

Sorry to say I've got loads of them. I realised that I was probably finally over the hill, when I started admiring cardies in M&S, mind you, they are comfy and they have useful pockets to keep stuff in.

Can't fault them, sitting here in mine now (plus slippers) and am quite content, thank you.

I like my cardi. Comfortable, warm and has pockets for hanky, mints & mobile phone.

Not giving a tinker's f*ck what people think of my dress sense, I have been wearing cardis since my twenties. In those days substitute phone with ciggies in the pocket!

There is nothing sexy about a man (of any age) wearing a cardi.

Even worse is when the said cardi is stretched over a beer belly and old, saggy and out of shape

Back in the early 1980's there was a brief fashion for wearing cardigans, especially the American college type with a broad white band round the middle and the letter 'Y' on it. Had to be worn with Sta-Prest trousers for the full effect.

Someone left their web cam on, and trust me it was not a pretty picture!!

Yep, but only one. And it's green, albeit a very dark, approaching black type of green. And why put this in old n bold? I'm sure quite a few of the youngsters, those that haven't yet stopped outside an Austin Reed shop thinking "I might look quite good in that", would find the cardi a very convenient type of garment. Just avoid anything with zips!

I've got one. I think that it's a cardi as it is a woollen type thing with pockets and a zip, but it has a hood. :?
