FS: 1/27 DROP Qty-5 Tricots St. Raphael wool sweaters; Qty-1 Nautica Alpaca wool sweater -- used LN

Will Ship To: Anywhere

Here are six sweaters purchased new by me in retail stores, as noted, during the early 1990s. They are used, but in excellent condition, very seldom worn, with lots of life left in them. They have been in boxes at the top of my closet for years. I grew up to become more of sportcoat guy than a sweater guy.

You may be thinking -- "a bunch of old sweaters, ugh" -- but these are high-end, luxury wool sweaters that are truly beautiful and well-made in South America. They really look new. I paid $250 for the Nautica on sale - it's Alpaca wool, thick, soft and really special. I paid $200 each for the Tricots St. Raphaels. These sweaters were made back when the company was putting out high-quality goods, before the founder sold it. They are tightly-woven, very elegant pieces with attractive, interesting patterns. At these prices, you'd be getting a great deal of value.

The sizes are mixed smalls and mediums, and the measurements do vary. I wear a 40R in sport coats and usually a medium in casual wear. Some of the sweaters are a bit roomier than others, but I felt like they all worked for me, size-wise.

My individual selling prices are listed below. Take all six for $50.
Selling as single lot only - all six sweaters for $40.
Last bump. If they don't sell, I will donate them locally.

About Tricots St. Raphael:
Tricots St. Raphael was founded in 1974 by Cecile Platovsky. Searching the world over for just the right people to produce her merino wool sweater, she ended up in Punta del Este, Uruguay, where she found exactly what she was looking for. She was so taken with the country and her surroundings that she named her company after the Hotel San Rafael. She added "Tricots" which means "knitwear" in French. For more than 30 years Tricots St. Raphael has built a reputation for innovative luxury and sophistication.
