    I have $120 on my PayPal bank account. I'd like to spend it. The items I would really like are:

    v-neck sweater
    wide leather belt (2" or as far close to that as can be)

    Anything else gimme your ideas.

    Try thrift shops around your area before plunking all your money on one item. Put the rest in some investment.

    not sure if this helps you at all, but H&M's merino wool v-neck sweaters fit very, very well and are very nice and well-priced.

    How much do they run? I think the BR ones that I've bought a couple of are like $50.

    What?? Weird. Did the store you go to have the "Mens Black Label" (the suits and stuff) or just "Divided" (the teenager stuff)? The v-necks are Black Label, solid color, merino wool, and fit perfectly.
