I really like this knit jersey in white (and black) but $292. seems a little over the top. I wonder how much of this is a lack of bona fide discount at yoox (they claim 40-60% off), and how much is just the Jil Sander name vs. the quality of the merchandise. It looks very nicely put together, but that's merely based on a fuzzy little internet picture. http://www.yoox.com/us/item.asp?codice8=39008222 I have a couple of RL Purple Label pullovers of a similar ilk for which I paid approx $200. each full retail. The only discernable difference from the RLPL vs. Jil Sander is that the "mock" collar of the sander is a little more generous and shapely--the RL collar seems somewhat stingy and has more of a spread that seems inappropriate to the style. Am I nuts to consider this purchase (also thinking of getting the black version of this, as well as a few cotton v-neck sweaters) or is Jil Sander worth this kind of coin? I definitely like the look of some of this stuff. Edit: I just clicked on link and note that it automatically defaults to black jersey. click pulldown menu to see it in white, if you care to.
