It's fine. Bit boring. If you look like Kristin Scott Thomas or Grace Kelly (lean, elegant) it could look gorgeously classic, on me, it would look frumpy. But I bet it's not expensive.

it's only £19 ish from uniqlo...the grey is a bit uniformish

it is a bit utilitarian, but it would be warm/practical.

is it the shape or the colour you like? as pippi said gap have similar but good colours. bought a lovely teal one last week.

Be careful with the Gap ones: they shrink, even when you follow the washing instructions to the letter.

I knew this would be the Uniqlo one - I saw the ad in teh paper today as well and it did look good in that. Their website doesn't do stuff justice I think.

Worn well, it'd look awesome.

I love merino, it's so warm without being bulky, so easy to layer...

Not fitted enough- try Kew f or lovely fitted carids, though they are just getting winter stuff in.

Tinker - yes I saw the ad and that m,ade me look it up !
it could be great or easily rather dull - am in two minds.
