The Gotta Have - Commes Des Garcons Play - Sweaters

I mentioned in my last post a little about the Japanese design label, Commes Des Garcons.  I have to admit, it is more than a little satisfying to know that if you (who I call the "regular guy") did read my post, you would likely now have "Commes Des Garcons" (come day gah sone) in your vocabulary.

If you didn't remember and refuse to - well you might have to, especially after you buy one of the sweaters featured below.

The sweaters are 100% wool - V necks go for $295, cardigans $ 345 (find them at  So yes, they are definitely Gotta Have items.
