That sherpa jacket and cardigan中中. Are they 100% wool?

Also, will you guys be restocking the Pecora Nera sweater? Other online retailers doesn't seem to have the darker color version.

Thought Id pop in to give some major kudos to the DBF team.

I ordered the Percora Nera sweater. Killer piece but it does fit slim. Was able to work getting the next size up and return my TTS.

KILLER sweater. Cant wait for cooler weather.

I just received my percora nera in the mail and echo the sentiment. Its beautiful but too slim. I got an xxl so sizing up isnt an option.

Im usually a US 42, EU 52/Large in most things. I tried the large. It was ok. But just a bit snug around the midsection, if you catch my drift. Returned and was able to grab an XL. It fits much better on me.

Im curious what kind of temperatures the shearling vest would be appropriate for. Any insights @Nicolas DBF or anyone else here with experience wearing something similar?

Dear @maxbayuk Our Shearling vest is ideal as a layering piece for mid-season over a light knit. As for winter, it will keep you warm under a coat or a vest ! This sherpa vest is made out of an exceptional local wool fleece from Arles merino wool breeds, France.

Dear @JayDotz Thank you for your comment. I am glad to inform you that we have taken your request into consideration. We have just added two XXL sizes for our Pecora Nera. Available now on https://debonnefacture.fr/products/crewneck-knit-pecora-nera-wool-undyed-wool

MONTAGNE NOIRE
Now available exclusively in our store De Bonne Facture 63 rue Sedaine, 75011 Paris
Online launch at the end of October on mrporter.com and on debonnefacture.fr


De Bonne Facture introduces 竄 Montagne Noire 罈, a French heritage capsule collection exclusive to Mr Porter inspired by the folk culture of the Black Mountain region in the South West of France, specialized in heritage breeds of sheep and the local craftsmanship of wool.

The capsule blends mountain-wear inspirations with contemporary fits, introducing sherpa jackets, chunky knits, paneled workwear, and signature embroidered fleece. We collaborated closely with the local weaver 竄 Le Passe Trame 罈, expressing local folk art motifs, made with artisanal and natural undyed wools.

For years, De Bonne Facture has been committed to reviving this local industry through being one of the founding members of the Tricolor Collective, bringing together shepherds, breeders, spinning mills, weavers and creatives, to revive the local wool industry.

These two knits might be the items to break my De Bonne Facture cherry...

@Nicolas DBF, will all the Montagne Noire items be available on DBF's website, or will Mr. Porter have a few exclusives?

Had the pecora nera sweater delivered yesterday from Cultizm. Shocked how soft it is. Was on the fence between the taupe sold by NMWA / Cultizm and the darker undyed brown on DBFs shop. Dont think I would have been upset either way.

I went TTS as Im usually a Small with other knitwear like Inis Meain and happy with the fit. Now Im just waiting for the weather to get colder.

I'm fairly unfamiliar with the brand. Are the belts on the models also from DBF? If so, are they coming back?
