Zack,
Who made the brown herringbone in the top left corner? It looks nice, something that would fit into my wardrobe well. I can't stomach the entry price of a nice cashmere scarf since I've lost two mid-priced scarves in the past. One BR that needed to be retired, and another at a bar.

Avon Celli for less than $100 is very tempting though... I think johnnynorman (where is that guy?) snagged the last of the Barberas from Loehmann's over the summer.

norcal - that is actually one of these $10 "cashmere" scarves that they are selling on the street now. They have it in brown and various gray herringbones. I got this at a streetfair on the UWS, but I have seen them all over town lately at the "pashmina" stands. I saw them by Barney's, for instance. Check them out. As I say, I wouldn't be surprised if they're synthetic, but they're really soft and look good.

I bought some of those $10 cashmere scarves from a NYC street stand (from the back of a truck) last year. They've held up well and kept my neck warm last year. Not bad for the price of 2 drinks. If I get back to NYC this winter, I wouldn't hesitate to pick up half a dozen in various colors.

In NYC, that's actually 2/3rds of a martini, or maybe 1.4 bottles of beer.

One thing that's driving me crazy is the fact that I can't find my favorite cashmere scarf (from STP last year from Lyle & Scott for $13), so I may need to get one of those Johnston's of Elgin scarves. Why do my favorite socks and scarves always run away from me?

Loro Piana cashmere scarfs are of high quality though one will be more than the complete inventory of the faux $10 scarf seller.

How much do Loro Piana cashmere scarves typically retail for?

Yes. Supposedly some of the best cashmere available. I bought a large shawl for my GF and she was very happy with it. Expensive but much cheaper than -- and comparable to if not better than -- Loro Piana.

I like it a lot but will be damned if I'm going to pay $88 for it. Does anyone know where I can find something similar?

I gotta admit it, I popped for one of those BR cashmere scarves a year or two ago. Sort of an emergency purchase. Suddenly the city I was in turned blustery and cold. I cut off the tags, wrapped it around my neck, and braved the cold sans overcoat, and never looked back. I've grown very fond of it. And very surprised how luxurious and soft and durable it still is. No pilling either, which I don't understand. It SHOULD pill, but it doesn't. Sometimes you just get lucky, I guess.

Best thing, of course, is to wait, if you can, until the Jan/Feb sales and you'll pick it up for half the price. But sometimes you just can't wait.

These Avon Cellis arrived today and they are amazing! I highly recommend that anyone looking for a great deal on a cashmere scarf consider this option.
