    That's the key thing--whether the weight is muscle or fat. I reached sort of a plateau in my weight loss last year because I was also working out and adding muscle. So while I'm a few pounds over my ideal weight, I'm not bothered by it because I don't look fat and all the health factors (blood pressure etc) are good.

    So I'll pose a noobie kind of quesiton: $70 lambswool 7-guage cadigan (not shawl collar) in navy blue with sort of wide grey trim. Yes or no?
    I'd be all over it without the trim, for some reason I just can't deal with cardigans with trim, don't think they look good [​IMG]

    Normally would agree with you. I don't like piping on thin cardigans. For some reason this works with the lambswool for me. Does 70 seem an okay price for a lambswool sweater? Forgot to mention it also has one of those varsity double stripes on the left sleeve. So it's rather casual looking.

    I know you guys all love Jcrew, but after owning a few secret wash shirts, I found they don't drape nicely. The shirts I have definitely don't fit tight. Is there anything wrong?

    Seems like a lot for Lambswool. I just got the Merino cardigan last week. It is gray with charcoal contrast trim. I got it on sale because the store was having a 1 year anniversary sale. It's nice, but I wouldn't pay the full price of $69.50 for it tho. Bloomingdale's has better merino cardigans for the same price on sale. Maybe less.

    Thanks. Might wait for a sale then. I feel like I've already bought way too much at full retail.

    I just bought the Utility Jacket from buy/sell.
    Eh...It's okay, but I think Ima sell it and get that Military mockneck wool cardigan.
    So I'm selling the jacket if anybody is interested. (Small and surplus)

    No, but saw it in store. Seems all right but overpriced for what it is.

    how are these camp sox? wanna buy them for red wing boots.

    I picked up a couple pairs. I've only tried them on so far, but they seem pretty nice- not scratchy or anything. Thicker than normal socks, but not ultra-thick, meaning I can wear mine with more than just my heavy duty boots (that are intended to be worn w/ heavy socks). Word of warning- they're not the same 'one size' that their argyle socks are... so if like me, you're a small (8 or 9) shoe size they'll work fine- its just the heel part of the sock will be more at your ankle.


    Anyone have the Bowery bag? What is it like?

    I have last year's model (i think) that I grabbed on clearance for $30. Its decent: plenty of pockets, zippered pockets, etc to keep things...materials seem ok. I'd get it, but not till its on sale for $50 or less

    Good news--so the bowery bag does eventually go on sale? I want this but now I'll definitely wait a while. I noticed Gap online has a military-style sweater like V.D.'s J. Crew. It's not exactly like it, and it definitely looks cheaper, but for half the price I thought I might check it out. Supposedly lambswool. Will report back. http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do...d=648770&vid=1

    How much?

    So I dropped into my fave thrift shop today and found a Ralph Lauren equivalent of the j. crew hunting jacket! 30 bucks. Perfect condition, looks hardly worn. No breast flap pocket, just a regular pocket, but otherwise very much the same. Nice heavy cord. My size, fit is spot on. 30 bucks!
