Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Yep but I think cable-nit and cardigan slightly ease it out, unless you have a Argyle Cardigan...

Slightly oversized cashmere crewnecks with banded wrists and hems. I love the material/style so much that I've got a drawerful in different colours and they're pretty much my uniform from November to March.

Also a huge fan of these. I usually don't have the cash for full-on cashmere though, so I have to get a cotton/cashmere blend (usually about 2% cashmere ). More often then not though, I'll see a huge table of sweaters on sale at J.Crew or somewhere, and they'll all be v-necks. Not a fan of those so much.

I know, they're prohibitively expensive! I've very luckily and gratefully and stealthily appropriated a good part of my collection from my mother's closet. Most of the rest? Ebay, second-hand/resale shops, and patience! I usually shop in the men's section because it's the most likely to have this classic cut of sweater available in multiple sizes and colours. Also: oversized!

Hhnnngh but I love finding nice things for super-cheap; it's so saaaaaatisfying. I think it's time for an Ebay search right now...

Yeah, tempted to hit the thrift stores this weekend...

I'm just hanging out, really.

2nd'd. Over the past couple years I've procured no less than 4 full cashmere sweaters, all good/decent brands, on ridiculous clearance at different stores (1 Macy's, 1 JCP, 2 online retailers). I don't think I payed more than $25 for any of them. Keep those eyes open and wandering and you'll find the deal you're looking for.

I think with modern climate controlled buildings and houses, sweaters are a bit of an anachronism. What is the point? If it is cold outside I am going to be wearing a jacket/coat to keep warm, and everywhere I have worked and 90% of houses I go to have the thermostat set between 68 and 74 degrees year round. That's only an 6 degree swing, and even on the cold end, that is hardly deserving of more than a long sleeve shirt.

It is a shame, because I like the look of a nice sweater, but they end up living up to their name when I wear them. If this was 1920 and most houses had drafty windows and unreliable heat sources, I could see the point. In 2012... not so much.

In 20+ years, I have never worked in an office that was maintained at a comfortable temperature for 'office work'. Either freezing or melting--and freezing is better because adding layers is an option. At some point, there isn't more one can take off to cool down.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

The short sleeve, dolman layering type sweater. I've been searching far and wide for a white one without metallic thread - not having good luck.

Sweater dresses! My favorite part of winter is wearing one from my collection over leggings/tights and with a pair of boots.

Even when it's 20 degrees I'll wear, at most, a regular long sleeve shirt or long sleeve base layer under my jacket. If I'm cold at home it'll be a short sleeve tee with my Woot hoodie to keep warm. Haven't worn a sweater since Grandma made me

Of course if Woot sold sweaters, I'd probably buy one...

A cardigan. Not only does it make us aging grunge kids feel like it's still 1993, but you can keep warm while still allowing people to appreciate the awesomeness of your t-shirt.

I concur. However, I'm still partial to the hooded, pocket-y sweatshirt variety of knitted sweaters (which is odd because I don't enjoy pullover hoodies - they always feel like they're strangling me.)

If I'm to keep buying shirts, I need MXS! Please add my size!
