Okay this is about half true. Knits tend to pill if the fibre has a shorter staple length, and that depends on the breed it comes from. There are nice fabrics (merino wool) that have relatively short staples.

What do you guys think of this coat? The button stance height looks ok for casual wear?

I never wash knits, I just spot clean and hang them outside for a day.
Wool sort of cleans itself if you let it breath in between wear. Just be sure to not wear the same knit everyday for a long time.

I use a Verilux light wand because it's fast, cheap, easy, and scientifically fucking proven to brutalize germs and tear bacteria limb from limb.
Also I have an anxiety disorder.

My point was it looks cheap like those Silent sweaters ... You just have to wear them and they pill.

I started to type more when I posted that but decided to stop.

What I was going to say is that nice knits use long staple fibers and can take a lot of abuse before they start to pill. Cheap knits pill sitting on the fucking rack and feel nowhere near as nice.

Re: merino I have some jil merino knits that have zero fuzz and wear like iron. Of course this is 07-08 jil and it ain't like that any more.

I used to hate merino years ago (overused for marketing like "cashmere" is) but when I handled high end shit it is actually mind blowingly nice.

Never been impressed with any rl jumpers (purple label or not).
