I spent all of my recap of episode two of this newest season of The Crown complaining about DUMB DUMB ANNOYING PHILIP at length, but I did have to congratulate him on doing one thing right: He wore this absolutely amazing sweater. He’s a terrible husband and a very annoying TV character, but listen: HE OWNS ONE GOOD SWEATER. One good sweater that I too would like to own — if you like a slouchy boyfriend sweater, why not cut to the chase, and  buy a man’s sweater, after all? — and, luckily, it’s one that I  TOTALLY CAN own, because this sweater at L.L. Bean is nearly an exact match, and it also comes in a woman’s size. Likewise, this one at J.Crew is VERY very similar. (The main difference is that the ribbing at the neck and cuffs are contrasting on both of them.) I think those are the closest options, but it turns out that there are actually MANY versions of this sweater currently floating around.  Let’s all just promise to be better partners and spouses when we wear our version than he is on The Crown, shall we?

[As ever, if the widget doesn’t work, just refresh.] As you can see in the widget, I started with the closest matches to Philip’s Great Sweater — they’re VERY similar — and then went into sweaters with a similar feel. GET YOUR KNITWEAR ON.

As a general housekeeping note: This is not a sponsored post. Our sweater allegiances are ours alone. Like most websites, GFY uses affiliate links where available, which means we get a tiny bonus if you click through. I can assure you that all this knitwear was personally chosen by me while I sat around drinking coconut water and watching, uh, The Crown.
