Is $36 a good deal for this sweater?

I don't know. So many people are wearing them, I wonder how I might look in one. It was $360, which I do not even understand! But don't consider the original price. Is the price good for the sweater or can I find a nice one cheaper?

What brand, quality? Express has a lot like that around the same price. I imagine they could go on sale for 20 or less. If that was actually 360 which I can't imagine then um yea 36 is a good deal! I usually have to try them on - some don't cling or fit as nice to my body so I look frumpy and fatter in them.

It depends on the material and how well it's constructed.

I'll use this as an example. I worked for five years as a pawnbroker, so I have extensive jewelry training. When I would go shopping, I would see a lot of places mark up worthless jewelry (gold plated or gold filled) for crazy prices and then mark them down 75% or more. It wasn't even worth the discounted price, but people bought it because they thought they were getting a deal. If you are wasting your hard earned money on crap, that's not a deal.

Knowing the company as I do, it's probably very well made of a comfortable material that will hold up well. But to Taphy's point, I think the company does some serious marking up.

I figured they'd all kind of fit the same, but I guess not. I think I'll skip this. And if I still want one later I'll look for deals on the ground.

I have a couple of these types but none of mine are so sheer that you can see your clothing through them. Eileen Fisher has some beautiful ones that you can pick-up on Ebay at good deals if you don't mind being the second owner.

36 or 360?

It was $360.
It is $36 now.

Speckla 12-28-2012 01:13 PM

I can make and ship one to you for much less than $36. That is if you'd like me to.

Huh wha wha? You can? You can? Really? :)

It is the new Pantone Color of the Year: emerald/kelly/beryl. So you can't go wrong ;)

I don't think $36 is a lot of money for an article of clothing I like, so if i liked it, i would get it.

I have had sweaters like this before and I always belt them or wrap & tuck/pin them. If you do likewise, the fit won't matter as much.

It looks about 3 yds. And I'm pretty sure it's not cotton/spandex. Where are you shopping for fabric?:tongue10:

Josephine 12-28-2012 01:58 PM

If it's good quality, that seems like a great deal. Express has some that are not even that long and they range from 40-60. And I forgot, if that's the new color of the year, then even better.

Ericachristina 12-28-2012 04:48 PM

I think $36 is a steal if you like it. Very affordable.

mad scientist 12-28-2012 04:59 PM

I think its lovely! I would spend more than $36 for it.

spring1onu 12-28-2012 06:18 PM

It seems like a good deal.

And thanks to this thread I ordered a sweater today (though not like the one in the picture at all) because it got me started looking at them online. :evil: :lol:

Amneris 12-28-2012 06:50 PM

To me, $3.60 is too much because I HATE that kind of sweater with a passion.

If you like it though, it seems like a deal.

RedCatWaves 12-28-2012 10:46 PM

Can you link the site for that sweater, please? I love it. It's hard to find waterfall sweaters long enough.

ETA: Nevermind...figured it out that it's Misook. Damn, their stuff is expensive.
