Anyone pick up the new linen blend sweaters? Wondering about the hand on the fabric. Sometimes those blends can be crazy itchy. Any first impressions?

Haven't heard good things. But the good brands are really expensive. Personally, I don't think I'd want a cashmere sweater, because I'd always feel it was fragile and be self conscious.
Good to know that. Thanks guys. I was thinking to get one on ebay for like less than $100 though. I won't pull trigger if the quality doesn't match the price. Self conscious? Why not? haha
Quality isn't great. I wouldn't pay more than $100 for one of their cashmere sweaters. I honestly prefer their merino but they don't do that cable knit in merino. In my experience the solid color cashmeres have a softer hand to them than the heathered colors. I'd also expect the sweater to stretch about one size after a decent amount of wear.
Which location in the Toronto area? Markville Mall? The Eaton Centre, Fairview Mall, and Markville Mall locations should all have the same sales. Bloor St. is exempt because it's some kind of boutique, and Vaughan Mills is a Factory Store.
If you check back periodically or sign up for email alerts, they will have 25-30% off sales fairly often, however I think the suiting is excluded from the sale.
