What do you think about this one? What is the lenght in cm?

I personally think that cheaper is better for scarves -- great cashmere is great because it won't pill and because it drapes a little better than inexpensive cashmere (and is a bit softer, but even the cheapest cashmere is super-soft). But for a scarf, it's going to take a beating and will pill. And drape is irrelevant. I picked up a cashmere scarf in a cool pattern on Ebay for $20 the other day (NWT). The seller didn't know what store it came from, but it was made in England. She had about 15 more for the same Buy it Now price. I'll let you know how it is once I receive it. FWIW, the best cashmere scarf I ever saw was a Brioni/Loro Piana one. It was huge, and the fabric was substantial. But it was still $350 at discount, which makes it a terrible investment IMO.

Thanks, let me know when you receive it. $350 is too much for the use I can have of a scarve in Paris. May be in Toronto.

I like Portolano. It's fairly inexpensive (I get them at sample sales) and pretty good quality. I think Neimans/Saks carries it, and they pop up on Bluefly often. Banana Republic cashmere scarves go on sale for $19.99 after Xmas. Not the greatest but certainly serviceable.

We must stay in reality, $20 scarves must not be enough good for gentlemen awared of cashmer prices. Unless the discount is 80% off.

Thank you kindly Brian for the plug. (No...I am not affiliated with Brian...Sheesh... ) Actually the and Are 100% cashmere, and not blends... Sorry...cant offer plain plain scarves...Its against my religion... (Just kidding fellahs, lighten up). JJF EDIT: They are both darker in real life, the flash bounced back at me a bit too strongly.
