I bought a v-neck loro piana cashmere cardigan last winter and it is fairly soft but I suspect that the true difference in cashmere quality is more reflected in the worsted outer coat weight cashmere which is far more fiber intensive.

I've seen both get brittle and crack sitting on the shelf (not being a fan, I probably don't turn over inventory as quickly as Nick V.)....
Yes websites can and have been wrong (happens all the time), but labels on garments can also be wrong or make false claims (though this is much rarer and mostly of garments with a chinese origin) Super 120 is two things: 1)Super is a marketing/hype term used for wool 2) 120 in simplest terms denotes the gauge for a natural fiber, so 120 can be used for cotton but you will almost never see cotton referred to as super 120 even though it could be 120 (since 120 cotton is...

BTW when the interior of a car is professionally and properly steam cleaned (with true very hot and dry focused steam), the dirt is only loosened. It must still be vacumed(sp?) to actually remove the dirt. How many here vacume the suits?

Same problem here. I am a 38 chest with 28" waist but only 5'6". To top it all off my shoulders are very square (do not slant down from neck). In a t-shirt it almost looks like I have roped shoulders. First of all gaining weight is a complete NO unless you want to look like a cement block -(look at schwarzenegger in a suit in 80s). Lots of waist suppression is good and it needs to be coupled with high armholes. The ususal low armholes add to the bulky look of wide...
No don't remove the dangling bits. The surface of leather needs to be retained First use a bit of water to straighten the dangling leather (bits). Use your fingers to pull them gently straight (not to remove but make fibers straight). You will now have clean straight leather flaps Once dry use a bit of glue (carpenter glue is OK but water resistent cements are better) and aply thinly to the open wounds (underneath dangling leather). Then place the dangling fiber...
