That sweater is far from ugly. Wear what makes you happy. Opinions are like...

It's very nice, but do you need it? Are you going somewhere fancy? It reminds me of golf or the country club. The colors are springish. Maybe early March. At my dad's office many guys wore these.

That's very similar to what I wear everyday.

I like Polos better since Button up shirts are thinner and usually require undershirts for a proper finish. Why add another layer.

Argyle is a classic look. That means it doesn't go out of style. Now, that mannequin...yikes!

OP, do you like the sweater? (then buy it)

Or are you enamored of the name on the tag and that it cost your friend $160? (don't buy it)

^That one is very nice. If you're lean, it'll look especially nice on you.

Sweater vests are fugly. Why do you think they're part of the punchline in so many jokes? It doesn't sound like you're from the US, though, so maybe fashion is a little different where you come from.

if you like grandpa style (and you're young enough to pull it off, meaning 20-something preppy hipsterish) go balls out and do it right. Take a look at Drake's of London's:Knitwear - Online Shop - Drakes London

their fits are as classic and monied as you can get, especially those Fairisle patterns. I think you could probably rock some of those loud vests with denim or chambray shirts and black raw's in a street style. Vests do look best with some sort of jacket though, maybe a drapey fishtail parka a la Rick Owens.

I don't mind the look too much. I guess I'm partial to preppy styles. Here are some ways it could work (—some styles may be either argyle or a vest but not both; however, the general idea is there):

Classic:

(W/O tie): http://www.walkingtalkingstyle.com/w...33-572x800.jpg

Modern:

(Near classic w/ leather jacket): http://www.gentlemansgazette.com/wp-...ater-Tweed.jpg

Casual:
