Can you really tell the difference, is the cut all wrong. I'm looking for a soft cashmere/wool sweater and some of the
mens ones look quite nice , or am I way off the mark fblush

It'll be a very different shape.

If you WANT a jumper where the ends of the shoulders are a good few inches down your upper arms, one from the mens section will work well.

I could (and regularly did) when I was young and thinner (wistful)

go small enough you could still get a relatively fitted look. not cut so different tbh

Actually hoodies I still get from the mens department.

I don't believe so

The cut around the shoulders is too different

I do, I like the Margaret Howell look it gives. It works when all the other parts of your outfit are very womenswear, and also works with boyfriend jeans/Normcore look. Men's clothes tend to be cheaper than womenswear too.

Try a few sizes on though, to see which looks the best on you.

The shoulders are broader, the neck is higher, and the body is longer, but they can work well as a slouchy fit with skinny jeans. Try the men's small size.

Some places (Woolovers, for example) sell quite a few unisex styles.

Maybe that's why I like them, as I have aa long body, they actually work better on me than womans styles. I like Uniqlo.

I think it depends on your own shape - if it's a bit boyish then I think they can look really good but if you're curvy then probably not.

I do..Iam very tall and slim and like the extra body length. Only fine knitwear

I wear a man's jumper from French Connection. It's a man's slim fit so the shoulders are smaller (and I'm not slim!)

I can because I have broad shoulders, long arms and am quite tall. Sometimes they actually fit me better than womens jumpers.

I do, my favourite one belonged to my dad, he is slim ,but its still oversized on me,and it looks like men's sweater, but I like it that way,

I do. I wear men's crew neck cashmere sweaters. I have tiny boobs and I'm tall so they work for me.
