    I really love cashmere sweaters.

    I was looking at the J.CREW ones their are just perfect! LINK - But they are way over my budget, anyone know a cheaper alternative?

    Thanks!

    On a related note, I really love to drive the Aston-Marton DB9, but the MSRP is way over my budget, anyone knows a cheaper alternative?

    Martin + Osa are blowing out their Fall color cashmere sweaters for $170 retail -> now $79 less 30% off = $55.... but you have to call the stores to find sizes because the online stock is gone

    If you are patient, these sweaters are a regular part of the season end clearance. The cardigan that goes for $250, can be had for $100.

    I have sworn off all cheap cashmere purchases for the future. They just don't last.

    Agreed. Stay away from GAP cashmere, even at $30. I found some decent cashmere sweaters at Bloomingdales for $80 each (regularly $225). Not outstanding quality, but on par with JCrew. The pickings may be slim right now, but worth a shot if there's a store nearby.
