Remember this shot by Garance Dore I was so captivated by in April? Well I've lusted after that gorgeous chunky aran-knit sweater ever since but just couldn't convince myself to spend RM300 (MNG) or HKD400 (H&M) on it.
And the cravings got worse. It seems the darn things are a trend this season so they're everywhere. On the Sartorialist, on the runway, even on The Man Repeller which I find a great read but not exactly my style guru. I was being haunted by a frigging sweater!
But a perfect sweater would not also cost me an arm and a leg. So... here's how I bought a HKD30 sweater and modded it into my perfect sweater.
