    $178 Cashmere V-Neck Sweater at....Express?



    So either this is a typo or Express is raising prices to counter the coupons - a death spiral?

    I was just browsing options for a good fitting merino/cashmere/silk blend v neck. Down to two:


    J Crew Factory Merino, $50

    BR Merino, $42 w/ BRSEPT (or more of with BRMAD30 & BRMAD40 next Wed):

    At 6'1", 210 lbs, 42 jacket (16.5 34/35 shirts) I'm thinking I need to go with the Med Tall in BR (ala Old Navy sizing). Any tips?

    My Measurements: 6' 1" height, 35" sleeves, 41-42" chest/jacket, 35" waist, 34" inseam, 11.5D/EEE shoes, 200 lbs

    I love this kind from BR. Joe has mentioned it here: http://dappered.com/2011/03/from-the-mailbag-whats-the-best-all-around-v-neck-fabric/


    Here is the sweater: http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=28663&vid=1&pid=812357&scid=8123573 72


    Good luck

      yea, thats probably no typo, with the Consumer Price Index raising like 2% over the last year, it means inflation is going to steadily increase, which in turn will make the prices of our clothing sky rocket if you havent already noticed it, eg, LEC charging like a million dollars for that ugly argyle tie http://canvas.landsend.com/pp/Argyle...s&origin=index its not super ugly, cuz for the right price i would buy it and rock the shizz out of it but for that price...no no Screw inflation and this economy, messing with my style options lol

        @MaxMan I hadn't seen that LEC tie before. $80 for that tie is crazy money. I think LEC's prices have gone up considerably faster than the rate of inflation recently.

          Wow $80 is steep for that tie. Part of me wants to buy a pair of wool argyle socks and sew them together with my wife's machine. The real OG.
