    How do they compare in quality to cashmere sweaters by other labels, such as Brunello Cucinelli? Any comment on durability/fit/value/anything else noteworthy?

    I've had and have a couple. Kiton cashmere sweaters are pricer than Cucinelli sweaters. I bought a very thick cardigan cashmere Kiton sweater and I think it is softer than any of my cucinelli sweaters. Overall I think they are about the same quality, but I would give the nod to Kiton as I think they have a better feel.

    I just got my hand on a thick Kiton cashmere sweater, the quality (material, construction) is FAR superior than all of my brunello cucinelli and Loro Piana, combined. The hand finished details are beyond comparison.

    Additionally, I might add, some of the recent cucinelli cashmere pieces are more rough than so historically. I have one Cucinelli piece that is marginally better than JCrew- which is quite sad.
