While I was in hospital, I suffered a terrible loss. You see, my husband was in charge of the washing machine and I arrived my favourite navy merino sweater would now struggle to fit my three year old son. Bless him, he tried (and it could have been worse, at least it wasn’t cashmere).
Anyway, in the spirit of treating every problem as an opportunity, I went shopping for a replacement. My original was from Gap, but was bought with a code and I baulk at paying full price for anything from Gap – I mean, why would you? I found myself looking at the selection in Uniqlo, but for some reason, a ladies crew neck jumper in there looks like this:
Erm, no. That ain’t a crew neck, that there’s a scoop neck. However, on inspection of the mens’ section, I struck knitwear gold! A proper crew neck and soft merino in a deep shade of navy for £19.90? Don’t mind if I do. The XS is a nice fit – perfect shoulder width with a little slouch.
So, what do you buy from the mens’ section/nick from your other half’s wardrobe?
