Tallying the votes so far for the J.Crew cardigans from the last post, it seems like the majority favorite was the Gold - which was actually my first choice as well since I'd been wanting a mustard yellow cardigan for a long time. I initially thought that it was close enough... until I spotted a truly mustardy yellow cardigan from a Banana Republic outlet store a little while back.
And look at the difference!
I love that the BR cardigan seems to be the exact color of Jean's lovely Gap jacket, and that's what convinced me to buy even though the fit was rather long. After picking it up, I subsequently spotted the same cardigan on Vicky here and Sydney here.

And the J.Crew Merino Chiffon Placket Cardigan again in Gold:
And for a direct comparison:
I think fit-wise, the J.Crew cardigan is probably more flattering. But I do love the mustardy goodness of the BR sweater. What do you think... should I keep either or both? And thanks again to everyone who voted on the last post, based on your feedback I'll be keeping the Mansfield Blue, but am still thinking about the Heather Graphite & Weathered Wood.
