Limited usually has nice ones. I’ve been partial to Express in the past, but I feel like the last year or two their quality kind of nosedived in their sweaters.  I’ve gotten nice ones at Target, too, but they’re very hit or miss quality wise.

Honestly, my favorite place to find good basic sweaters in solid colors is Sam’s Club, haha.  They got a shipment last year of slightly oversized but slim cut solid v-neck sweaters, and I bought one in every color.  They held up beautifully and fit great, and they were $16 each.  I really do buy sweaters in bulk there πŸ™‚

Hmm… being from Seattle and working in an air conditioned office, sometimes the only difference between my summer and winter wardrobe is a lack of socks πŸ™‚ Express consistently has good sweaters and cardigans in the winter, look for coupons and sales. I also love J Crew sweaters, sometimes Ann Taylor Loft. In the winter I”m kind of a ski bum and I can’t get myself out of my fleeces, if you go on REI today they are having a MEGA sale on 2011 closeouts. As in I bought 175.00 worth of stuff and saved 500. Which included 1 rain coat, 4 fleeces, and two nylon type shirts for my hubby. Here’s the link, it’s only through today:

Between my grad student budget and my too-lanky arms, Old Navy’s online tall sizes are the best for me.

I’m super picky about sweaters because the cheaper, lower quality ones tend to pill like crazy or they lose their shape fast! I tend to buy sweaters at J Crew (either cashmere or cotton) and Anthropologie (quality will vary, but the patterns/styles are unique!). I would avoid American Eagle as the ones I’ve gotten there shrink like nobody’s business and Banana Republic, which used to be good but I’ve had a lot of quality issues recently, such as a hole that materialized after one round in the delicate cycle IN a lingerie bag!

I love American Eagle sweaters! They are definitely my favorite but for good deals check out the clearance section of alloy.com πŸ™‚

I knit my own, only way to get gear warm enough for the deep freeze that happens from mid December to the end of January in MN there are weeks where we don’t get above 0 farenheight. I’ve actually had a window break b/c the temp without windchill was -15. One thing that I really like to wear during those weeks are thermal shirts underneath my sweaters and sweatshirts (I have a super casual work dress code, as long as you’re wearing pants and no sandals you’re good). Also smartwool socks are great they really keep you’re feet warm and they don’t wear out very fast.

I have a lot from Ann Taylor, Loft, and Banana Republic (only the outlet though).

I don’t really have a “go-to” place though.  Lots of places have good sweaters.

I hate admitting this but… I buy a TON of sweaters from Aeropostale. I buy about 10 of them every year around Christmas. They get discounted to about $9.99 around then and you can always find a coupon as well. I love sweaters, I have both low end and high end. Aeropostale makes sweaters that rank pretty high up on my sweater list! Never pill, barely fade, don’t shrink, hold up well in both washer and dryer. The one downside is that they stretch out a little over the course of a day. But they always bounce back after washing. Oh, and they also usually say “Aero” in small cursive letters on the bottom left side, near the hem. But it’s hardly even visible.  For $9.99, you really can’t do better πŸ™‚

I’m casting another vote for Ann Taylor and Ann Taylor Loft. I buy a lot of sweaters from Roots, which are always cozy and last forever. Gap has cute sweaters too, as does BR. I’ve ordered other items from Piperlime, but not sweaters, and since they carry many brands, the quality and price will vary.
