    I have been taught that a sweater is a chandail. A "pull" is an anglicisme and would not likely be accepted by the language police in la belle province.

    Why is 'J'ai achete un cravate' incorrect?

      Cravate is a tie not a sweater or pullover

      Jersey not accepted.

      Because a "pull" is not a jersey. As simple as that.
