[Trend] Orange Knit Obsessions

Ever since I spotted the photo on the bottom left on the Sartorialist, I've had a bit of an obsession with Proenza Schouler knits.  Who knew a fairisle could look so cool?  I later saw Miroslava Duma is a similarly coloured tangerine striped jumper and started the hunt to find something for myself with an orange twist...

Proenza Schouler Instarsia Knit £555 / Miroslava Duma at Marc Jacobs AW12

Here the best of the ones I could find - starting with a simple little H&M piece for £14.99.  Obviously not quite the same quality is Miro's - but you could probably get the same look if you tried hard enough (grey beanie, boyfriend jean... £1000 handbag).  The next is from Whistles, who are getting better and better at knitwear, this one may be £225 but I promise you the feel of it will validate every pound for you.  Ted Baker is rapidly going up in my estimations at the moment (number 3) and 4 is from American hero brand J Crew - suspect this is my favourite of the bunch - and am a bit chuffed I found some of this style available over a Net A Porter - if you like it I'd hurry up...

Number 5 is from menswear brand Burton - never expected to be blogging about this company but I spotted a girl wearing this in Soho last week and asked her where it was from. Number 6 is a cheat from Hobbs as I already own it (outfit post here) but as it fits the bill and is one of my favourite purchases of the year, I couldn't leave it out.  Lastly, and by NO means least is this lovely white fairisle knit from Paul by Paul Smith - for the quality I can't quite believe it's under £200... Which is your favourite?

I love number 4 and 5...who'd of thought it would be from Burtons?
Men always seem to get the best knits!
