    I'm considering buying a Malo cashmere sweater... it is a terrific color and somewhat unique- however, it's a bit more than I usually see Malo for on Ebay, Filene's etc.

    Considering Malo's 'place' on the quality chain for cashmere, and our insistence on a deal, at what price range do you stop looking for something like this?

    I bought a Malo cashmere polo shirt from Bluefly for $200.00 recently. Absolute max. Bought similar from N Peal through Worlds Finest for $130, which was a better deal for similar quality.

    With shipping it would be just over $200.

    Malo is a bit softer than the N Peal. Like most cashmere, both pill after a while (which is why I have a 10-year old Malo I don't use anymore together with the newer one). You're still getting a substantial discount on the Malo (10 years ago I bought on sale at Sulka for $250-maybe $700 retail now, but who would ever buy Malo retail).
