1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I have a batch of really nice sweaters for you. Most of them are 100% cashmere, the rest are either cashmere-wool or 100% extra-fine merino wool. Prices exclude shipping. Please PM to inquire about shipping charge and payment options. Measuring cashmere sweaters is only meant to be approximate and I added my only estimate of the fit as reference. First off, half a dozen NWT Dalmine sweaters. Dalmine sweaters are 100% made in Italy. Tagged size EU 52 but runs slim. Probably best suited for US 38R - 40R, if you are 42R and like slim fitting then I won't stop you. ****Two are 100% cashmere with MOP buttons. They are considerably heavier than RL cashmere sweaters, retail for $397, asking $160 -> $155 -> $150 ****Four are 100% extra-fine merino wool with suede elbow patch and real horn buttons. This is the super-180's among sweaters. Silky smooth yet hefty enough to keep you warm. Retail for $257, asking $105 -> $100 -> $95 Feedback on the merino sweater by LTM: "Love the jumper, great seller! I own a number of merino tops both for work/casual and bushwalking. This one is up there with the best of them in quality. I particularly like the suede elbow patch." Group Shots: [​IMG] For best color comparison for the Dalmine sweaters, D1 to D6 from top to bottom [​IMG] D1: 100% extra-fine merino wool SOLD [​IMG] D2: 100% extra-fine merino wool SOLD [​IMG] D3: 100% extra-fine merino wool [​IMG] D4: 100% extra-fine merino wool SOLD [​IMG] D5: 100% Italian cashmere [​IMG] D6: 100% Italian cashmereSOLD [​IMG] Now, the truely luxury stuff. [​IMG] LP1: NWT LORO PIANA Roadster Pull, 100% cashmere. This is the special 2-tone edition, quite thick, retailed for above $1000. Tagged as EU50, but in my opinion runs small, better suit for someone in US size 36R - 38R. SOLD LP2: NWT LORO PIANA, 100% cashmere, super thick and heavenly soft. Retailed for $1795. Size small fit someone in US 36R - 38R. Asking for $600 -> $585 -> $575 [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] TF1: NWT TOM FORD, 64%/36% cashmere/cotton. Classic creamy white color. Heavenly Soft! EU size 54, about US size L, center of neck to end of sleeves 37", chest (pit-to-pit) 22.5", length (shoulder to bottom) 27.5". SOLD TF2: NWT TOM FORD, 100% cashmere. Elegant lilac color. SUPER THICK, about 1.5 lb heavenly soft cashmere will keep you toasted in the coldest days. EU size 50, about US size M, center of neck to end of sleeves 34", chest (pit-to-pit) 20", length (shoulder to bottom) 27". SOLD RL1: NWT Ralph Lauren, 100% cashmere. White. SUPER THICK, over 1.5 lb Italian cashmere yarn! The turtle neck has very unique buttons, love the design. RL size S. SOLD [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] BS1: NWOT Bamford & Sons 100% cashmere cardigan sweater, cream/tan, big MOP buttons, made in England, marked size L, probably best for someone in 40-42R. p-2-p 22.5", neck-2-bottom 28". Tried on a couple of times in the house only, a bit too large for me, mint and fresh. Retail likely to be around $800. Asking for $295 -> $285 -> $275 -> $265 -> $255 -> $240 [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG] LB1: NWT Luciano Barbera cotton cable knit sweater, hunter green, made in Italy, size S, perfect fit for 36R-38R. Retail $425, asking $95 -> $90 [​IMG][​IMG] Finally I have three NWT SUPER THICK Johnstons 100% Scotland cashmere sweaters. These are among the best quality I have seen and yarns are unbelievably soft. When I say they are thick I am not joking. To put things in proportion, I show you a few pictures below. The pink sweater in these pictures is a standard $398 PRL cashmere sweater. Next to the Johnstons sweaters, it looks feather light. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] JS1: 8-ply cable knit, tagged as size 42, but measures more suitable for a size 40R. p-2-p 20", center neck to end of sleeves 34", shoulder to bottom 26", SOLD [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] JS2: 6-ply in a tight stripe pattern, tagged as size 44, suitable for size 42R-44R. p-2-p 22 1/4", center neck to end of sleeves 36" (end of cuff is meant to be folded up), shoulder to bottom 27", $300 -> $290 -> $275 -> $250 (last drop before return) [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] JS3: 6-ply in a tight stripe pattern, mistagged as size 48, should be a size 42, suitable for size 42R-44R. p-2-p 22", center neck to end of sleeves 35" (end of cuff is meant to be folded up), shoulder to bottom 27", $300 -> $290 -> $275 -> $250 (last drop before return) [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Some seriously nice stuff in this thread! Love the LP and RL.

    Dalmine is high quality stuff. I have a couple of them. Very nice yarns. IMO much better value than $425 RL cashmere sweaters.
