On the left: Ted Baker Mako, around $175 with international shipping. On the right: Gap Button Cardigan, $98. Both available in black as well, both with contrast-colour plackets. The Gap one's not bad; it's 100% wool and machine washable. But the Ted Baker, despite being 50% acrylic, has some nice stitching details, a little rougher-hewn look and a lot more character. This is a durable item worth investing in. We'd pay the premium and go high-end here.
