UK Clothes - where to get a nice chunky mens wool jumper?

Hi. I'm looking for a pure wool jumper for myself. Chunky, warm, hardwearingish. Probably grey, but would consider other colours, mixes.

Will pay a bit for a quality one with a decent cut, but would rather not pay for designer unless it's on sale.

I'm a fairly young guy, slim build.

Any ideas?

Hmm. When I think about this sort of thing for Mr G, I head to Reiss, Austin Reed, or EWM if M&S fails me. Sometimes I have luck with Fat Face and Joy. Next is a bit too trendoid for Mr. G in a lot of ways (really trendy patterns that are so last week). That's Mr. G in my profile pic with me, though he's younger than he looks... his fashion sense is guided more by what's comfortable and non-itchy than anything else.

Btw, all of these places have massive sales on right now, and if you register with Reiss, they send you info on special bargain nights.

I'm all about a fisherman's sweater. Plenty come in charcoal.

H+M do some chunky jumpers, and these would probably better fit a slim build. I doubt they're pure wool, but might do you for now. You might be worth checking out Boden.

This jumper is insanely popular this Christmas, mainly because the guy out of Take That wears it in the advert. Nice quality but the cut is nothing special.

Response by poster: Cheers guys. Thanks for the heads up about Reiss, I like their stuff when I can get it cheaper. The fishermans/aran jumpers also look pretty cool, so between one of the those I'll probably be sorted.

A bit late to the party but check out Uniqlo too - I've only bought women's sweaters from them, but their fit and prices are great.

Response by poster: Wow those prices really are good. I'll have to have a look in there.
