It looks like it's soft. If it's pure cashmere, I can't imagine why it wouldn't be unless they made it on the cheap out of low-grade yarns.

I have a couple of overcoats in similar thick cashmere fabric (not Club Monaco) and they are incredibly soft but not especially flexible.

 

It's both hard (so it retains well the form of the coat and not flexible) and not that soft. When I brush my fingers against it, it feels a bit like wool, only a little softer. In fact, it is hard to tell the difference between this and my wool coat in terms of texture. It is not as soft as cashmere should feel like, say soft cashmere scarf, for example.

 

You said "incredibly soft" so I'm guessing this is not a difference in personal assessment. The cashmere is from Italy (Pure cashmere by "Breschi" cashmere) and the coat retailed for close to $1000, so I don't know why this cashmere is so un-cashmere-like. :(

Has anyone tried the merino turtlenecks? About to order one.

Even though it's 100% cashmere, it's not soft but hard due to compression (Anyone have similar experience with compressed cashmere??)

I tried looking for this product online but it was nowhere to be found. Is it possible that this coat is only sold in Korea?

Feedback on the coat itself would also be appreciated.









Coat looks a tad big on you.

I intend to wear shirt + suits in it, so it should be OK
