and it hasnt looked all wrong?
I am thinking of this for a loose slouch look

will the sleeves be all weird?

Yes, I have. It's the neck lines, I think that spoil it. It annoys me because the men's jumpers are often better colours, longer and slouchier (?better made it can seem). The shoulder width, higher neckline combo just makes them look different (in a bad way). Maybe some of the trendier, deeper V mens would be ok. I think you'd have to try a few and see if they work on your body.

oh thanks

marks did a long line one last year i loved..

Me. Agree that you need to try on. I have one that works fine and one where the V of the neck isn't low enough, so it doesn't really work. I wear that one for slobbing in at home.

do you look a bit like Michael Douglas in Fatal Attraction?

I hope not!

I prefer round necks. I've had a couple of men's lambswool jumpers from M and S and they've been great.

The cashmere one you've linked is a beautiful colour.

Boden now do a ladies relaxed fit cashmere jumper if your looking for that style?

It needs to have either a round neck or a deep v to work. Men's v necks look all wrong on women.

30% off at boden until end of today as well. I have the boden slouchy one, is lovely, nice thickness to it (unlike M&S women's ones which were thin and not that soft) but boden one does come up big, I'd recommend sizing down
