Looking for cashmere sweaters in colors black, camel or dark green. V-neck or crew neck, cableknit or plain regular knit.

I'm a size M in RL cashmere sweaters, which have measurements (measured while lying flat) pit-2-pit: 21", arm: 25", length: 26".

All brands considered, it's how they fit (& the price) that's important.

I live in Sweden.

Send me a PM if you have something you think I would be interested in. Thx in advance!

Given the recent glut of cashmere, I'd just go for something like the Gap or H&M, or whatever equivalent you have in Sweden, for a basic model.

I'm a big proponent of online shopping, but sweaters are one thing that I'll only buy if I've tried on one from the same label on in person, just because the fit is so touchy.

Well, the RL cable crewnecks are pretty good quality for the price (on discount anyway) and consistent in sizing from what I've seen, so that would be a good one to collect. There are always a few on Ebay. I may have one or two sitting in wait to sell (I list them before the cold/holiday season) so I'll check for you.

BTW, the other RL sweaters are not consistent in size with the cashmere cable crewnecks, just FYI. The hoodies were smaller, and the lambswool zipnecks much bigger. It would be nice if he could get his act together WRT size.

Well, since H&M is Swedish we of course have them here
Problem is that I'm practically in the middle of the woods - which leads to the sad fact that my local H&M-store doesn't carry cashmere at all. Nowadays I buy almost all of my clothing online, to my local tailors delight.

this is from an old thread but is it still possible to get these at such low prices? i would gladly pay $50 and more.

http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...cashmere+cable

"The most I paid for those $397.50 sweaters were $49.99. Some I got at Robinson May for $19.99, some at Macys for $16.99 and most of them at Bloomingdales for $49.99, just in case some of you are wondering why I have so many of them. At the price I was paying, I just couldn't help buying all of them."

any other suggestions for nice heavily discounted cashmere/wool sweaters?

Sorry, already have a white one. Only looking for a black cashmere sweater as of now since I got my hands on a green and a camel/light brown one. But thanks for the offer!

If someone has cashmere sweaters (thick or thin, it doesn't matter) that would fit a small (35-36 chest), I could be a buyer!
