I am a size 18 and 5' 11" and struggling to find a baggy "boyfriend" style cashmere jumper for everyday casual wear. When I was a smaller size I wore M&S ones but they seem too short now. Ideally I want it to cover a muffin top. Any ideas? Ideally grey or navy.

Boden relaxed cashmere v neck or round neck - they are in their sale and there is an additional 20 pc off until midnight. Uniqlo men's cashmere is worth a look too although I think boden is better quality

I got a cotton/cashmere blend in tk maxx men's section today - got x small and am a size 12/14 and it's lovely and slouchy

Thanks for the Boden tip Brillen, I just went on and ordered 3 jumpers from there, one cashmere, and the grand total with the extra 20% off was £118. Full price it would have been £312 shock I need a few smart jumpers and these look perfect.

Pure clothing collection, fab but not cheap!

Look in the outlet online. Some good bargains

Orwell and Austen, or Boden - though the quality of Boden cashmere has declined in recent years but the price has stayed high

Good quality for the £££.

Yeah practically all tops from M&S are too short these days.
They've lost my custom over this. Tesco and GAP have won it instead.

Pure collection cashmere is a good option.

If you can get near any factory shops, Begg Scotland, Johnstons of Elgin, Hawick Knitwear and other such shops are the real deal, they provide cashmere to Pringle, Gucci etc, the quality is streets ahead of m&s/pure etc. Their shops in Edinburgh are cheek by jowl with the tourist tat tartan shops and look exactly the same, but they aren't - and they have sales at the moment.

I have every day cashmere from Zara and &otherstories.

My favourite big slouchy cashmere jumper is the one I regularly pinch from DH grin

It's a Jasper Conran one from Debenhams - I might have to buy one for myself because keeps pinching it back....
