    I'm jealous. I've been lusting after that Drakes cardi for months.

    You suck. I have been looking longingly at them recently. Which color, so we can avoid looking like matching iGents at lunch?

    Camel. Thought it would be best with flannels.

    RJ, I keep my highest-end stuff in individual cedar boxes. Years ago Nordstrom included these boxes with their house brand cashmere, and I guess my purchase history with the store was good for something: I asked for 100 extra boxes and they gave them to me at no cost.

    I can't claim I've never had moth damage, but every time it's been my own mistake (e.g. not cleaning up food spills right away, etc).

    You should see what happened to poor Fred Astaire. Without a Trace is going to have a nice Christmas. Do you, uh, have any spare boxes?

    My wife just bought me one of these for Jewish Christmas.

    Do you like it? Worth $1k?

    Don't know yet. Seems great. I've been looking for the perfect shawl cardigan for a couple of years, and am not disappointed.
    A couple years ago Harrods was selling online an incredibly lush Ballantyne 6-ply cashmere cardigan... but at 1300 quid I couldn't justify it. I think that would have been my ideal. Your friend Alex Kabbaz has a gorgeous Scott & Charters shawl-collar cashmere cardigan for sale that looks like the cat's whiskers, so to speak.

    Boobs not included.

    I had to content myself with an Italian-made cardigan, the horrors. With one small customization carried out by our favorite leather daddy...

    I have the light gray one. You'll have to get the navy one, Andre.

    How about the Hermès 24-ply one that you have?

    I knew one day I would use this: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    So how do you like it? Will had convinced me not to get one when he said it was too heavy even for San Francisco weather.

    Bah, he's always wearing a scarf according to his blog.

    You should get one of the Kabbaz ones, he has 20 colors.

    Love it. Still, I'm not sure that it is as good as the old stuff...but, the really good cashmere from the past tends to be nicer after one washing, so time will tell.

    You should get one of the Kabbaz ones, he has 20 colors.

    The Kabbaz one seems nice, and I sorta appreciate his throwback, Pabst merchandising of mechandise, starring his ubiquitous model.

    I don't go for most of the EG stuff, but I like that. No buttons?

    Don't know yet. Seems great. I've been looking for the perfect shawl cardigan for a couple of years, and am not disappointed.

    How's the waist? I like the look of that, but am leery of sweaters with that sort of ribbing at the bottom.

    Courtesy of the recent eBay bargain bonanza, I just received a Cucinelli cashmere similar to this one:

    20 colors is only useful if you get to use them all in one sweater.
