    Martin + Osa is offering 50% off all sweaters through this Wednesday 11/25 -- that brings the cashmere v-necks down to $59/a pop with free shipping/ free return shipping over $100.

    I searched the Forum before I pulled the trigger and cheapest they have been listed in the past was $55, but considered a great deal at $79.

    Not seen if you go to the site and click on sales so here's the link:

    has anyone from canada ordered from there before? they added the 13% tax for me at the checkout, but will there be any surprise addtional charges later? (haven't purchased yet)

    Damn, just spent the last of my monthly clothes budget. The cardigans and vests look pretty nice.

    RE: Fit. The posts I found before buying that the fit was "slim" in the body but the arm length was good - not too short. Fabric seemed to get a solid thumbs up all around, as Moo noted above.

    We'll see when they arrive, but the free shipping and return minimizes the risk factor.

    Price-wise, it's hard to beat the Filson tote I got from them for $39 two weeks back, but at -$60 I threw down for a pair.

    Mine's 1962 MKII and, strangely enough for a British car of any age, it's stunningly reliable....

    Do you know where this is made - in China?

    Depends. Obviously they can't charge you tax. Will they charge you a customs charge? According to that, yes. You will probably get a duties charge which must be paid before you can collect at post office. But with these cheaper priced items below $100 you never know if it will get tagged or pass right through.

    On lower priced items, if you really like it, then go ahead, it won't be that much on, say, a $100 order.
