Spent $1k on Brooks Bros sweaters

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 
Going to NYC in mid November.

My wardrobe is lacking clothes for the 40-50 degree weather.

I bought these two merino sweaters from Brooks Brothers to wear during the day:





For the evenings, I bought these two:





I was trying to achieve these looks:







My question is: will this be enough to keep me warm?

I also bought a bunch of cashmere beanies and scarfs (not from BB though).

Thanks!

You will likely requre a coat, at least in the evening.

To achieve that look, you will probably have to spend 1k in hair gel.

Olive oil could work too.

Can you give me some pointers?

Will I need a coat even if I layer up? As in a icebreaker merino baselayer + dress shirt + sweater + beanie & scarf?

Were you thinking about something like this when you said I would need a coat?



Thanks for your help.

You will also need to work on your longing gaze.

You spent $1,000 on 4 Brook's Brothers sweaters? lol...

 

To answer your question, it depends on what you wear underneath the sweaters. 40-50 degrees isn't THAT cold. If you wear a hat and a few layers, you'll be fine. If you're going to be in cooler weather for a while, it probably won't hurt to invest in a jacket...never know when it will rain.

btw, that jacket is worth $3k, so it's out of the question.

So what? I spent nearly that much on my car.

What kind of jacket VinnyMac?

And what's wrong with the sweaters? The only expensive one is this one, which was worth $400.



The rest were decently priced at $100-$150.

OinkBoink, please go troll some other thread. There are plenty here.

Sidebar: why have the prices of BB sweaters jumped skyward so significantly this year? Bad year for wool? I don't think oil/transport prices jumped up that much...

You might be okay with all those layers but evenings in NYC in November can drop into the 30s. I would bring a jacket/coat.

I hope you bought those on some kind of sale.

Any suggestions?

I also like this one, but it's worth almost $6k
