Wolf vs Goat Appreciation Thread - Page 84

For me, it's about how much I'll wear something. I agree $300-$500 is a lot for a sweater (to me), however, if I knew I'd be wearing it all the time, I would probably still do it. I think his prices on other things make sense to me.

I personally couldn't afford a $300 sweater, but for a full cashmere sweater that isn't too crazy. Even J. Crew and BR have sweaters that cost that much, and WvG is obviously way better quality. I'm kinda surprised everyone is so shocked by those prices.

I think its a combination of price and design. While the sweaters are really cool, generally if I'm spending $500 on something I want to make sure I'm going to get as much use out of it as possible. It's why you tend to see more cashmere v-neck, crewneck, and cardigans than things like the explorer or the full zip. Mauro's designs are awesome but sometimes its hard to swallow them at a higher price point.

Thanks for going and looking for it! It looks nice, and luxurious, but not my cup of team.

 

If he has a Shawl Cardigan, I would've bdefinitely jumped on it if it were thick AF. I'm definitely looking for something like that.

Yeah, same here.  Sweaters are just generally a very expensive category of goods, especially when you start getting into cashmere.  I feel like it's probably much more obvious to the average person what you get for your money in a sweater compared to, say, an expensive shirt, though.

Yeah the Connery I have is super nice (although I won't get it out until the depths of winter) and the biggest thing I'd like to see would be a thicker collar.

Any updates on the sweatpants?

post #1254 of 1409

All I know is I need more pants. I've got shirts out the wazoo, to the point that I'm passing on pre-orders for things that I think I will actually like because I just don't have space for it, but I'm jonesing for more pants.

I'd love to see WvG make a trouser with a higher rise. I'm done with low rises so none of the recent projects have appealed despite some nice fabrics.

What's so great about the pants from Mauro? 

post #1257 of 1409
Same thing that's great about everything else he makes ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ fit, fabric, price

Ooooh.

The blogs and pre orders are great. I just can't get excited until I start seeing stuff shipped out. Once I get some of my tees and tencel from a few months ago, I'll be more interested in getting more.
