I need one but am quite fussy: must be mid grey possibly oversize slouchy but not scruffy possibly a textured knit possibly crew neck and hopefully wool or cashmere or at least a wool poly blend. Acrylic only if all the other criteria are met. Any help appreciated!

Any body any where seem one??

Tried on four as you described in TK maxx. Lovely knitwear. It was the Brighton branch I visited so it may have been exceptionally good.

Celtic Sheepskin have lovely ones. Can't link on my phone but the website is [[]

I was searching on Etsy earlier for something similar and found a couple, but OMG the weirdness on there. It is needle in a haystack

Try The White Company

I got a great one in top shop. Not sure if they're still in stock though, it was a few months ago.

Try Cos? There is a Cos thread running at the moment and people are loving it!

There was a nice one in Zara. Blogger Susie SoSo wore it the other day.

MissDD1971 Tue 27-Aug-13 09:35:42

Link to the Zara one. 2 tone

I was in AllSaints today. They have several beautiful grey slouchy items of desire. Wish I had the money as they are

I'm watching this thread.

The slouchy gray simple, yet so elusive.

LynetteScavo Tue 27-Aug-13 18:33:07

Ooh, I'm watching this avidly.

I bought one 5 years ago from Zara and have only just thrown it out because it was beyond shapeless after so much use.

I got a great one from Wallis but they don't seem to have it now? It's big grey stripes and so soft and slouchy.

noddyholder Tue 27-Aug-13 19:39:11

not a jumper but i bought and am seriously impressed

I got a great one in Eileen Fisher - fitted all your criteria but pricy!

MissDD1971 Tue 27-Aug-13 20:22:02

Ah the Zara one is navy and black not grey but an sure they'll do a grey one.

They have Celtic sheepskin jerseys in TK Maxx at the mo, inc the odd cashmere for 30 quid.

LynetteScavo Tue 27-Aug-13 21:20:48

Man made fibres but a bargain and I like it.

Bargain! Has wool in it.

Great Plains

Poss too much acrylic but nice mid grey and interesting neckline!

Chesterado Tue 27-Aug-13 21:39:20

Link fail. By the fire draped top!

AgathaF Tue 27-Aug-13 22:21:19

No inspiration to offer, but don't the models on the Zara site look bloody miserable?

Cremolafoam Wed 28-Aug-13 12:20:14

Noddy I am loving that Stories website grin thanks for the linkthanks

noddyholder Wed 28-Aug-13 15:07:24

Anyone posted this Topshop quilted jumper yet? I have it and it's good smile

phoolani Wed 28-Aug-13 22:54:18

French connection. Not sure what its made off but have worn mine for about a billion years (fortunately they update them every year!).

rootypig Wed 28-Aug-13 22:55:22

Oh sorry just seen the woolliness criteria.

Seen somebody already posted it. God I love that sweater. Cost per wear about .000000001p. Can't wait for winter!

MrsShrek3 Thu 29-Aug-13 06:59:30

link here

MissDD1971 Thu 29-Aug-13 14:18:41

MrsShrek3 - shameless brag - my brother does the photography for Woolovers website/catalogue as he's a personal friend of the guy that owns it and has even had some freebies out of it. LOL

RubyLovesShopping Thu 29-Aug-13 15:12:30

Thanks for all the replies just come back from a few days away without Internet so tonight once dc in bed going to go through all the links.

Well done MDD1971's brother they're lovely photos. Models look great.

dirtyface Thu 29-Aug-13 16:13:55

i am also always on the hunt for a slouchy grey jumper! thought was just me.

i just bought this from la redoute

i love it but not sure about it as its handwash only :/

LeoandBoosmum Thu 29-Aug-13 22:14:22

I'm a bit late and don't know if any one else has pointed it out:

Whistles Maggie cashmere sweater (£165)... I suspect they'll do one of their Grazia 25% off deals soon.

Phoolani I want one of those now shock

Is yours the grey one? Not sure I can justify £70 on a sweater... how is FC sizing?

MissDD1971 Fri 30-Aug-13 19:54:10

LMAO at MrsShrek3 - I thought the green emoticon was something different.

next time my brother gets freebies he doesn't want I may send them your way. smile

and to the other poster yeah my little brother is talented - he's at film school now part time. thanks for compliments I'll pass them onto Mark (owner at Woolovers) and my brother.

John I have it in grey and love it! I am an 8/10 and have XS - I am usually a small - and it's quite baggy on me.

JohnSnowsTie Fri 30-Aug-13 22:27:22

Thanks flower, it's a toss up between grey and navy for me!

I got a beautiful slouchy boxy almost dolman-esque fine knit from H and M last week - new in and in loads of colours, I got it in black and want a duplicate as it's one of those items I know I'll wear to death. It's viscose and all sorts of crap but seems to have survived its first wash, plus it was only £15.

Plumo 100% wool £95

Mint Velvet are always good for both grey and slouchy. They have a few in ATM at ~ £60.
