IME it depends on how they're woven. I have some pants that have some cashmere (I can't remember how much, but it's not as high as 30) with a tight weave that have held up really well. But I'd imagine most cashmere - particularly the really soft kind - is not too durable.

Mohair mixes, again depending on how they're woven, can be really hard or really soft, although when they're soft it's in more of a fuzzy way than a plush way.

Lots of stuff is moving; it's important for stores like Tres Bien to also provide a sense of taste-making with their buys, though, so it's not just about stocking what's moving right now. If retail were that simple, nothing would ever change. There's a desire to get ahead of the curve and induce demand. Tres Bien has the clout to shape what menswear will become, assuming they don't misread the market – hence the comments about prognostication.

That feeling of wanting to treat myself to a bday/christmas gift, but not knowing what to buy.

You're outside the local convenience store and feel your shoe is untied. As you kneel down to lace your shoes, you look up and see this:

Clothing-wise, you mean?
I don't know if Ian at shopthefinest is around over the holidays, but if so his warehouse is pretty close to Santa Monica. Well worth a visit, if only for the "wow" factor of the amount of stuff. Plus Ian's a good guy.

Or are you just generally looking for a way to kill a couple of hours?

Might be worth a trip to Wasteland to see what you can find. There is a bigger/better version on Melrose too. Lots of good places if you can head East a bit.

I need an escape for a few hours from the family Christmas celebrations that will last the next five days. I was leaning towards clothing based but I'm open to suggestions. I won't have full access to a car so it'll have to be in Santa Monica.

Maybe Ron Robinson?  Maybe Fred Segal?  I haven't been to those places in years now, but if you are just looking to kill time and want to see some LA douchey fashion, that can be fun.

Best thing to do is to drive down to the 4 seasons in beverly hills, order the short rib quesadilla then the chocolate cake and smoke a fine habano while gawking at all the russian escorts.

Btw was at scp and did't realize they opened up a sandro there (sup parker), so I decided to check it out though normally I despise going into mall shops. At first I was pleasantly surprised but then more I looked the more things I found off. Stuff was made all over the place (italy, india, china, turkey, etc) and lots of synthetics. There was a cool silk shirt that was 100% poly but the matching scarf was 100% silk, former made in tunisia or something and scarf china like wtf? It was the same print and felt like similar fabric. Some good jackets and outerwear, it's sort of like a hybrid apc/saint laurent lite without the fuccboi connotations. Most of the mens was on sale, there was a cool boxy sweater but it made me look 5x more swole than I already am so I passed on it. It's not a bad shop, palette is mostly black and white with some other colors mixed in and not a great deal on sale either but worth it for some outerwear and small collar hidden placket shirts I suppose. You oc guys should check it out in the coming weeks. Be sure and check the tags as I've never seen shit made all over the place like this before (if you care).

Also the uniqlo there is garbage, about 1/8 of the store is dedicated to mens. It's not readily apparent what the other 7/8 is but there is one tiny section of efm cardigans, another tiny section efm v necks, etc. Hardly any +j, no cool socks, don't even know why I bothered. Bought a beige v neck bc I wanted to cop something along with my white tees. I'll have to go bev center which is a flagship.

That feel when you spill coffee on your brand new white YYPH shirt you had been saving for Christmas 5 minutes after putting it on.
