Spending $1500 on sweaters

I live in a tropical island, and hardly ever get the chance to dress for cold weather. I'm going to Lake Tahoe on february and needed to buy a couple of things since I don't own any clothes that are appropriate for that kind of weather.

I was thinking of buying a Cashmere cable crew, like this one, and maybe a Cashmere sweater, like this one.

What can you tell me in general about how I'll be dressing and how do people dress in these situations. I've heard they use layers. This is a boys sky trip, so we will be mainly hanging out to bars, casinos... so jeans will be worn mainly.

Where could I buy these kind of stuff for less money. I plan on using this for a week, then either reselling or returning to store.

Thanks

Ummmm, you plan to wear these sweaters for a week and then you plan to RETURN THEM BACK TO THE STORE FOR A REFUND?

You're a stupid (*insert expletive here*).

I personally have not. It's dishonest...and just a dick move.
The longest I've worn something and returned it was for like 5 mins. I tried it on, walked around the house, looked at a couple mirrors, decided I didnt like it, and returned it.

Are you planning on wearing the sweater with the tags attached or something? Can you even return items if the tags are off?

I thought only incredibly vapid shopoholic women stooped to the shoplift-style of returning used merchandise back to stores for refunds...

Are you also the kind of person that buys a giant flat screen right before the superbowl only to return it after it's had beer spilled and nacho cheese spat on it for three hours?

Would YOU like it if you knew you spent $1500 on sweaters that were worn and used by other people? WTF is this, the sweater library? You buy things in a store, not just borrow them, use them, and return them.

If you're such a cheap (*insert expletive here*), then why don't you just buy some cheap sweaters in a secondhand store?

how would you feel if you purchased a sweather or a dress shirt that's been worn and may have sweat marks and all of the other stuff on it?
