25% off J. Crew Sweaters – How to make the most of it

J. Crew Sweater Sale – Gift Picks for Him, Her, and You.

Use code SHIP150 for free shipping when you spend $150 or more

Is giving a sweater as a Christmas present cliche?  A bit.  But what if it’s an awesome sweater that the recipient will count as one of their favorites for years to come?

J. Crew does a fine job in the sweater department.  They’re running a 25% off sale that ends today, and you can get those sweaters shipped free if you spend more than $150 (which is a lot) and use the code SHIP150.  That code is good through December 20th, but the sweater sale only lasts till 11:59 PM ET tonight.  Here’s a couple of picks to package up so you can get the free shipping.

For Him:  Fine Lambswool Mock Neck Cardigan – $73.50 (reg. $98)

Available in Navy or Gray.

The traditional style of a cardigan is nice, but it’s a high mock neck version like this that he’ll reach for over and over again.  He can wear this thing just about however and wherever he wants.  It leans a little casual but it can still do some dressed up duty with chinos.  Not all guys like v-necks.  Not all guys like traditional cardigans.  This is the answer for the “it’s cold, I need something warm, what should I wear?” question.  Layer it under a standard collar fall jacket if you’re headed somewhere that would otherwise require you to get your peacoat or topcoat dirty.

For Her: Cable Ribbed Turtle Neck or Chalet Shawl Collar – $73.50 (reg. $98)

Yow, and za.

There’s hardly anything better than a great looking woman in a well fitting sweater.  Let her pick out the sweaters with embellishments.  You should stick with the classics.  Like a turtleneck or a modified shawl collar.  If you really want to get spendy, J. Crew makes a cashmere turtleneck that’ll be all soft and no itch.  Save the receipt because buying clothes for a woman isn’t the easiest size/color/style code to crack.

For You:  Heavy Cotton Shawl Collar Cardigan – $88.50 (reg. $118)

Your on your own for the Tom Ford shades.

I know, another cardigan… but you can get your standard V-necks and crewnecks for a bit less (even on sale) at other places.  It’s this substantial black cotton cardigan with the leather (or leather like?) buttons that’ll be hard to find anywhere else.  It’s almost a dead ringer for the style Daniel Craig wore in Quantum of Solace when he goes and looks up Mathis for help.  His sweater might be shaker wool, but a thick cotton will work deeper into the spring.  Slimmer shawl collar on the J. Crew version too.  Hard to say you can improve on 007’s style, but… this one does.

For Him & You = $162 shipped w/ code
