    Hi Gents,

    I need to upgrade my sweater collection for the fall. I dress business casual and my office gets chilly. Suggestions? I have build up a Black Fleece shirt and slack collection to wear this fall and need some sweaters to go with this stuff. I also need to get some decent jackets, too. Building a wardrobe aint easy!

    I would like to generally stay under $300 per sweater. Are there any good deals now or do I need to wait until Thanksgiving or Christmas sales? Maybe a few now then more later at the big sales.

    Thanks

    JAB pima and merino sweaters can be had for about $20 when they're on sale. Buy them. Take them to your tailor. PRESTO!


    EDIT:

    $300 for a sweater!? Are you CWAZY!?

    I'd stay away from JAB as most of their stuff is poor quality.

    Try Lyle and Scott or Pringles of Scotland for some better sweater in the "higher end"

    Of course, you could always go with Brooks Brother or JCrew for sweaters, ($60-100)

    I was looking for something in the 0-$100 price range as I need 2-4 sweaters that I'd need to wear almost every day.
