All those two people hand signs are pretty cringe worthy, actually that whole thing is cringe worthy.

Double that up with a corduroy shirt and you're in for a great time.

My favorite purchase this year is the same thing. Heavy calf stooges. Didn't think a piece of clothing would make me so happy. Shoutout to @sinnedk for the lead on the SZ classified, got it for a song.

Also, RO black prisoner pants. so cozy.

My other favorite purchase

Layer-0 leather was far and away my best purchase. Wore it quite a bit due to the mild weather this year:

Uniqlo for cheap

RLPL (via eBay / B&S) for nicer
Polo RL also makes plain cashmere sweaters (no pony/logo) which are hardly distinguishable and should be cheaper

Yoox stuff is seeing progressive markdowns, so if you're up for digging and/or waiting around, you can search by material

If you're OK with spending a bit of money, I really like William Lockie. Most online product shots look terrible, but it's just how they've styled it. Japanese stores on Rakuten will have "hipper" looking images using the same products.

If their standard sizes don't fit you, you can also get them MTM through Heather Wallace (William Lockie's online store). Just note that, if you import cashmere, there's a pretty hefty tax. Retail for a 4-ply crewneck is probably somewhere around $400-450, but you'll end up paying $600-650 in the end.

Otherwise, I've been impressed with the Scott & Charters lambswool pieces. Haven't handled their cashmere, but I assume it's pretty good. There's a bunch of S&C stuff on sale right now at NWMA for like $350 ish.

Johnstons of Elgin is an ok value too, often available for cheap on STP and it's one of the other big Scottish cashmere mills, makes stuff for a bunch of fashion/luxury brands.. Esk cashmere on sale, I think @zissou likes them. On the Italian side, you can check yoox and ebay for stuff from labels like Malo etc.

Esk makes wonderful knits, although they've departed from the more heritage look that I prefer. I only own knits with their other fibers, not cashmere. I prefer something a little more durable. They're having a sale at the moment, too, if you want to give them a try.

Hm, William Lockie two-ply cashmere crewnecks are on sale right now at Mr. Porter for like $210-240.

I had a two-ply cashmere knit once from John Liang, back when they were knitted by Barrie Knitwear. They were supposed to be really good, but I found the sleeves to stretch out easily. I don't know if that was due to the sweater being two-ply or just the knitting (this was made back when Barrie was having financial troubles), but I assume the Lockie ones are made as best as they can be.

On the upside, a two-ply sweater will be easier to layer over than a four-ply. More plys = thicker the sweater.

I have a bunch of vintage Scottish cashmere - Lyle & Scott, Alan Paine, Pringle, Ballantyne, etc. You can find that stuff on eBay and etsy pretty cheap, though I mostly got my stuff in person from vintage dealers at stores and flea markets.

Halfway on-topic, tonight I found what I take to be moth egg casings in a Malo cashmere sweater (16-ply, bling bling) and I picked off everything I could see by hand, now do I seal it up in my freezer for two weeks, take it to a specialty cleaner, or soak it in a five-year-old boy's pee?
