I was downtown Boston today and stopped into Filene's Basement to look at a cocktail dress for my fiance. Well, they didn't have the dress in her size, but they did have the Borrelli cashmere sweaters on 25% markdown. I picked up a "khaki" colored cashmere crewneck for $125. Seemed like quite a steal, and I had been eyeing them. They only had one in my size (a "54" whatever the hell that means). I wish they would have had a navy blue v neck in my size, but the khaki/beige color actually looks pretty damn cool with a pair of jeans (oh, yeah, I also picked up a pair of Joe's jeans for $45 to complete the look). Really great handwork on this thing too -- the collar has a little bit of "give" to it, so it can accomodate a collar but will pop right back into place if you want to just wear a t-shirt underneath. Normally I go for v-necks because they can accomodate a collar better, but this Borrelli crewneck can do it just as well actually. Should make the East Coast winters a little easier next year. I'm hoping it lasts me a decade.
