i really wanted it, but they didnt have my size and its ridiculously expensive.
Please put me off it because i bought something cheaper but im still dreaming of the fox grin

Um, I like it actually. I think it's quite witty and reminds me of Brer Fox in the Uncle Remus Stories. I think it would go well with jeans, boots and a nice jacket.

The fox one I almost like, but it is a bit try hard, they have missed the mark somewhat. Also it is wool and angora and will probably itch like fuckery.

I think the fox is funny, I'd feel kind of edgy and jaunty if I wore it. But hey, it BOBBLES! You've had a lucky escape.

Philoslothy Sat 09-Nov-13 21:16:07

Mine isn't itchy but it is so warm, I can only really wear it if I am out of the house.

Mine hasn't bobbled.

gringrin Some funny posts here

Feel a bit better now and almost glad I didn't get it.
I also prefer charlottes last season one.
The one I bought looks nice with white shirt underneath and some skinny jeans smile

Eww! Animal jumpers =big No no!Unless it's a Christmas jumper with a reindeer,and that's just for fun!

Second one looks fuddy duddy to me

Sorry

At that price, I'd expect it to me made out of something a bit nicer than the cheap, mostly synthetic and viscose blend, with just enough angora to shed and tickle, that you can get on the cone from colourmart. It'll probably crease and not hang well over any other clothes, but not be particularly warm, either.

And unless you're under 12, intarsia sweaters are not a good look.

That first one has Val Doonican written all over it

OMG to that first jumper is all I can say!

charitygirl Sun 10-Nov-13 09:43:15

They have such a cheek charging £70 for a jumper with 30% polyester. OP you deserve better!

I WILL buy polyblend knitwear but won't pay more than £30. Arbitrary but fair I feel.

ThePorpoiseOfStupidity Sun 10-Nov-13 09:53:15

It's pretty terrible sorry op. Why is only one of the cuffs red too? I would not be spending that much on a jumper, let alone one with a coat wearing, stick wielding fox on it.

Unless you are working part time as a Gyles Brandreth lookie-likey, you have made the right decision.

gringringringringringrin Feel so much better

lifesgreatquestions Sun 10-Nov-13 12:02:01

I prefer your first choice... and I hate clicking on S&B threads because they always make me want to buy crap I don't need... Off to look at the stupid fox sweater again... grumble.

Housesellerihope Sun 10-Nov-13 12:24:09

The thing that amazes me about the first jumper is that it has 4.5/5 stars from 69 reviewers. I always used to take comforting the fact that although I am slightly deficient in taste I try to buy clothes with good reviews so I couldn't be going too far wrong. But that jumper.... is just wrong!! Quite like the second one.

ThePorpoiseOfStupidity Sun 10-Nov-13 12:26:05

<adjusts tannoy>

lifesgreatquestions, please step away from the fox jumper. Immediately.

grin

lifesgreatquestions Sun 10-Nov-13 12:26:42

(but the second one is dull!)

I've been thinking about this again (sad, me?). The fox one is daft, but overall, I've decided I'd rather wear a daft one than the second one. Really though, if I was spending £50 or more, I'd want a proper merino or lambswool jumper, in a neutral colour.

CharlotteBronteSaurus Sun 10-Nov-13 14:22:29

actually, although it's synthetic, last season's joules one has a really nice feel, far comfier than my uniqlo 100% merino ones, which do itch a bit.

seventy quid is still taking the piss though.

RiffyWammal Sun 10-Nov-13 22:05:50

Oh my goodness. The fox jumper - I love it. What is wrong with you people??? But then I am rocking these beauties lately smile

And only ten quid from Asda!

trixymalixy Sun 10-Nov-13 23:14:46

I like fox jumpers. I have this henry holland one from 2 years ago. Don't like the one you did buy, sorry.

Thanks a bunch people - I'm not stuck with a

"What does the fox say?
Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!
Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!
Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!
What the fox say?"

earworm.

Preciousbane Sun 10-Nov-13 23:26:30

I saw the raccoon one in ASDA yesterday, at least it was cheap.

FriendlyElephant Sun 10-Nov-13 23:27:24
