For whatever reason, the cream Aran knit is taking over the trendy side of East London at the moment (meaning that any bloggers across the pond will be going crazy over it next year when J. Crew do a suitable copy). The problem with the versions the ‘cool’ kids are wearing is that they’re usually poorly sized and well, a bit rubbish. So upgrade yourself with this Aquascutum cable knit*, which has all the advantages of the vintage aran knit – i.e it looks good – and none of that funky smell. You’ll probably do well to size up though, judging from how tight this looks. (My Wardrobe)
*We know this technically isn’t an Aran knit, but it looks close to it, which is good enough for us.
