Mens Trend Alert: Fair Isle Sweaters

    88 is your “$” pick? i know we’re talking about quality sweaters here, but are you aware we are in a recession?

    Heavy knit sweaters are costly – but they’re worth the investment. Found a less-heavy knit Fair Isle sweater for $68, but I don’t like it nearly as much as the picks shown:

    the “$” pick i own, it is absolutely fantastic, i stumbled onto this site trying to find the same style sweater maybe by the same company, it is that good. however i didnt pay 88 for it. usually UO likes to price things a ridiculous prices so that ppl think what they are buyingis worth it or whatever paying high prices for clothing does, i got mine on sae at my UO for like 10 bucks. they like to knock down teh prices so drastic sometimes it woth waiting or hiding one, benig that the stores are usually in chaors u can hide them for months without the employees finding it.

    if anyone know where i can get similiar or same style sweaters id like the info
