Best Option for the Skyfall N.Peal Oxford Round Neck sweater
It’s an awesome color match, 100% cashmere and about a third of the price of the original. Plus, the $125 price activates the free shipping. What’s not to like? Size large is sold out at the time of writing. And stock in small and medium is also getting low. So if this is the one you like, act fast.

Vedoneire Soft Knit Cotton Crew Neck Jumper in Sodalite: £49.95/€56.65/$65.00
For those of you that prefer a cooler cotton option. There is a small embroidered logo on the chest, just fyi. The sweater will ship from Ireland. As did the jacket I ordered from them. And it arrived within 5 days with no customs hassles. Vedoneire has sizes small to XXL in stock.
Looking for a brighter pop of color under your Barbour? This alternative from Massimo Dutti should get the job done. Fabric is 70% cotton, 4% cashmere, 26% mulberry silk blend. Sizing is limited to 38, 40 and 42 right now. So I doubt this one will last long on the list.
So what’s BrooksTech? According to the product description, it’s a 2-ply Merino wool that’s machine washable and is more resistant to pilling and wrinkles. So it’s got that going for it. Sizes small to XXL are in stock on the Brooks Brothers’ website.
Ain’t cheap for a cotton sweater. But REISS does make some nice stuff. And the color comes really close to what we want. They have sizes XS to XXL available.
