Are Polo Ralph Lauren cashmere v-neck sweaters worth the price of app. $150?
They are being sold on ebay with the tag: "made in China of Italian yarn".
I found a cashmere sweater that runs small, so I'm not sure if it's fake or not.
Here's some pictures of the sweater, does it look real?
I would not go for that. Good cashmere comes from Mongolia, so why get one with "Italian yarn" that's then shipped back to China to be "made"? You're better off getting a vintage cashmere sweater from one of the major Scottish makers, or a new one from Johntston's of Elgin or one of the other few remaining Scottish cashmere weavers, or a new one from one of the major Chinese makers like Snow Lotus or Erdos (quality as good as any of the Scottish or Italian ones, as China is now keeping a lot of their best cashmere). These can all be had from ebay for way less than $150. You could also get a new one by Johnston's of Elgin on clearance from Sierra Trading Post at nearly that price. If you are interested in STP, sign up for their "deal flyer" email which routinely gives discounts of ~30% off their regular clearance prices.
