This is a thread devoted to the Cardie. Be careful where you tread.

I have recently bought a cardigan. It is grey and I love it.

It is woolly, warm and looks like a bag of spuds. But warm and wooly will do me.

Anybody got a problem with the Cardie? Anyone else own one? Or is it just me? Standing alone, proud and indominadble.... indomenable..... indomneible...

In me Cardie

Not only do I have several, I can also knit them.

It's enduring comfort clothing: nowadays often made of fleece, but the same concept endures.

I wear Harris tweed. moleskins, Tattersal check and smoke a pipe.

OF COURSE I WEAR CARDIGANS!!!!! You are not alone....

My God man, cardies are fashionable now-be not ashamed!

Stand proud (no, not like that...)

I have a dilemma. I was bought one for crimbo. Not one of those nice comfy ones that look at home behind the Daily Mail but one of those that are meant to be worn with half mast skinny jeans and hair gel by a zit infested chav.

Do I wear it once to please? Keep it at the back of the wardrobe and hope it's never mentioned again? Buy the afore mentioned jeans and gel and mince down to the pub?

Hmm: if you are a gel and sit down to do both No1 and No2, then well done-carry on knitting.

However, if you stand up as you proudly write your name in the fresh snow and don't giggle when someone says 'tight head prop', then shame on you.

..........and if you ARE a gel, then this will remind you of your natural place in the world http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LS37SNYjg8w

And I have a cardie. It is russet in colour and smells of tabs and Cocker Spaniels. So there.

At what age do you qualify as "old"?
I'm 43, and my mufti is more likely to consist of a surf shack T-shirt and a pair of cargos.
Are you edging cautiously into codgerhood, or are you embracing it in all its tragic, beige trousered, flaccid membered, barely continent, horror?

Go and learn to smoke tabs and take drugs you young whippersnapper. And get a fucking haircut.

Heres the rub. Whilst ones Cardie is fine in the home... at what point can one poodle down the boozer in ones Cardie, without ones mates taking the piss?

I think you can get away with it in the Legion but probably not in Yates?

One does not cardie in the pub, one cardies in the shed as any self respecting codger would know - and one might even have a second cardie in case of visitors in the house thing.
Now perhaps you lot would shut up and let me get back to my M & S cords and heavy woolly.

I have a couple of Cardies, with the weather being a bit adverse, I've wrapped my shed in them to keep it warm.

Nowt wrong wi a proper bespoke cardie! Hand knitted ones are ghastly. Me mum used to knit them and make me wear them to skool. She also once knitted me a pair of swimming trunks.......
 
#16
Should the cardie match the slippers or the belt?
 
#17
i was given a cardie as a leaving gift from my last civvy job, it is button up but is it still a cardie if it has a hood?
i might add i'm considering buying some slippers tomorrow.
is this wrong considering i'm not even 22 yet? 8O

1. I hit 30 when a geriatric Ronald Reagan (Grecian 5000 and bright blue jeans) was president about the same sime I was posted on promotion into the Sergeants' Mess. With standards to maintain, I decided I was too old for jeans. Eventually I realised it was impracticable and I did briefly wear jeans again but I then realised that when your figure reaches a certain age, it is a lot easier to get cargoes (that were coming into fasion) to fit than jeans, especially when your inside leg:waist ratio, always a little on the low side, starts to slip, even if I was still wearing 32" waist when I left some years later.

2. I thought feel compelled to tell you about my Cardi. Our cat died and after a suitable period of mourning the children were ready to welcome a new cat into the house. We went to see one but found that he and his ginger brother were a good pair and it seemed a shame to split them. We were going to call them Whisky and Ginger, but when we got them home there was a Bacardi advert on (where the cat dances) and the pair of them adopted the pose (up on hind legs "It was THIS big") so they were called Bacardi and Ginger. Bacardi has always been known as Cardi. They are the two most affectionate cats I have known in 54 years. Last couple of years we have holidayed in Wales just outside Newcastle Emlyn. On the road to Cardigan and Tesco there is a building supplies company called Cardi and it always brings a smirk. Then I found them doing some renovation work on a shop right on the seafront at Newquay and I was so tempted to ask for a freebie T shirt but I didn't bother. Thing is I don't tend to wear T shirts any more either: no pocket for mobile phone + power lead and pen. Except for me MalcyArt Recce T shirt, "Recce do it in front of everyone" and one I saw and couldn't resist: "Chaos Crisis Confusion my work here is done".

Edit for mong clause omission.

With Tesco's new dress code are cardigans still allowed to be worn in their stores ?
