    Hello all

    Was hoping to get some opinions on this:


    I've never worn cardigans before but I have an interview next week for an industrial placement where the dress code is business dress (I'd rather not wear a full-on suit), so was thinking about a cardigan or jumper to wear over a shirt and tie (on account of it being cold and all).

    What do you think?

    EDIT:
    Oh I forgot to mention that I'm also considering this:

    Not the colour I'm looking for :nah:

    I think I will get the second. I was going to get it originally but then I saw the cardigan and wondered if that would be better.

    Only problem is I dislike pullovers because I always look like a mong taking them off. Also a button-up can be unbuttoned if it's too hot :erm:

    Dislike. Buttons > zips.

    I quite like the first cardigan, but it's the breast pockets that look weird and spoil it.

    If its business dress code, then just wear a plain jumper with a shirt and a tie. Although I like cardigans, they dont look smart enough tbh.

    Mmm, I dunno, cardigans tend to have larger v necks than v neck sweaters don't they? I think they show too much of whats underneath to be "smart"... then again that's just my judgment. I really like the brown jumper.

    No I do like the brown jumper, it's just marginally more expensive and I'm trying to spend as little money as possible atm:o:

    The jumper also came in a navy blue (sold out in my size) but I do actually prefer this khaki/brownish colour (I want to wear brown shoes, brown belt and grey trousers as well btw).

    Only trouble is, now I've talked myself into liking the cardigan (also it has novelty appeal because I've never worn them before) :pinch:

    Might get both tbh.

    I'm such a budgeting fail :dry:

    I bet you the jumper will be warmer than the cardigan.

    This is true. Depends on how well heated IBM offices are as well.

    OH WAIT.

    I have a waistcoat (matches the trousers I am planning on wearing), would that be ok for an interview? Or is it too formal/wedding-y?

    Dunno really. I assume you have a coat to go with it...? I like waistcoats tbh.

    A cardigan isn't 'business dress'.
