This Just In: Brooks Brothers Merino Wool Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders Full Zip Cardigan

$21 on eBay

Does this really require an explanation?  If you follow this blog, you know that this is one of my favorite patterns of all time.  I have 3 ties, 1 bow tie, a pairs of socks, a rugby, a watch strap and another cardigan in the same pattern. 

I knew Brooks Brothers made several sweaters in this pattern about four years ago.  They pop up on eBay all the time, but never in my size.  I saw that this was a large, but the seller mentioned that it was 20" armpit to armpit.  This led me to believe that it was a boy’s large, which fits like a slim men’s small for the most part, narrower in the shoulders and slimmer and shorter in the sleeves.  I ain’t mad though.
