This season, Macy's in-store brand Tasso Elba stepped up with an array of outerwear and knits. Recently, I picked up this $80 lambswool cardigan for around $40. A nice mix between jacket and sweater, this piece offers plenty of warmth without much weight. The metal buttons are easy to maneuver while wearing gloves, and the patch pockets are a nice touch. The only drawback is the set of epaulets, but I removed them rather easily after taking these photos.
If you've never examined the Tasso Elba line, now's a good time to do so. At its price point, the quality is quite something. The overall brand image is a blend of Robert Talbott, Cutter & Buck, J. Crew, and even Paul Stuart.
