Looking for sweaters with out-there/interesting textures. I'll post some I like and if anyone else has any inspo or links it'd be greatly appreciated
Don't like the collar on this but the way it's knit is really cool
I'm in college and I can afford it but I'm saving up for a car right now and for books and prolly getting married as soon as a I graduate so I just can't justify the purchase at the moment.
Cool, I bet you make good life-decisions. Do you have any cool sweaters to show us or nah? Bonus points if it's you wearing it.
How do you justify the value?
I suppose I'm a huge pleb that is more about functionality but I have a single wool scarf that cost me 20 bucks and it's big enough to wrap around my neck twice and wide enough to protect me if I wrap it just once.
I could really only see dropping that much or more on a jacket or shoes.
But I mean I don't really even like any of the sweaters on this thread either this one: >>9336751 has dope texture and pattern but the slide color is offputting to me.
I'm genuinely curious because scarves in my opinion add very little to outfits to begin with and I just don't see what 450 dollar scarf can add that one under 100 bucks can't and I guess I mostly wear them purely for the function
Well you answered it yourself.
A scarf is a good scarf if it keeps you warm and is made out of a nice fabric that doesn't itch and irritate.
That means well knitted soft wools.
Other than that... paying 450 bucks for a scarf is completely unnecessary and borderline retarded.
There is no functional or quality or ground breaking design difference between a 150 and 500 dollar scarf.
Thanks for the heads up man, his stuff is pretty nice!
There are a lot of reasons why a sweater will cost that much. Material quality (what kind of wool it might contain, does it have cashmere etc) the wages of the worker who makes it (is it some kid getting $1 a day at a desk or a worker making $18/hour or more) as well as some other factors like quality of construction, but then a lot of it is simply luxury markup.
Clothes are a game of diminishing returns. Some people are willing to pay $40 for a sweater thats 2x as nice as a $20 sweater, some people are willing to pay $500 for a sweater thats 10% nicer than a $400 sweater.
Now there's the thing, I think we're just on different pages. I'm already with a beautiful woman whom I love deeply and I just want to settle down, be an engineer, and have a ton of kids
