J. Crew Cashmere Cable Knit
What is this?
A bright orange cable knit sweater made out of stupid soft cashmere.
Why did I buy it?
I was in Boston for the weekend visiting close friends and saw this insanely orange sweater on sale for $40. I was used to buying $400 cable knit sweaters from Ralph Lauren, and this one was 1/10th the price, VERY orange and looked identical - I couldn't not buy it. At the time orange wasn't even a color I wore, but the discounted cashmere had a hold on me and it has held up nicely through several winters of constant use.
J. Crew occasionally sells these, when they don't I would check eBay:
