  • Epaulet x Styleforum Alpine Loden Collection

    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

What's the best cashmere shawl cardigan? I've been eyeing Permanent Style and Drake's and Johnston and William Lockie. My internet search says O'Connell's pills a lot.

Bought a William Lockie cardigan. I'm loving it. Pretty convinced they make the Drake's one.

Lockie makes for Drake's, Frans Boone, and quite a few others. Scott & Charters makes for Colhays, Winston & Co, HnWhite, Cloth and Cut, etc., as well as O'Connell and Permanent Style as far as I know.
How is the Permanent Style cashmere shawl cardigan? Apparently the O'Connell's pills a lot...if S&C makes for O'Connell's and it pills a lot wouldn't the Permanent Style one pill a lot too?

I haven't handled it in person so can't comment, but I'm confident Simon's ones are the best quality there can be. Personally I've never heard or read a bad comment about the SC cardigans. Bear in mind too that O'Connells could have requested a cheaper yarn, a different finishing, etc.

I've received mine last December and admittedly haven't worn it much since, but have not noticed any signs of pilling so far. It really is done through A&S (ships in their box), as stated by him in some article, still interesting in terms of revenue sharing though. Fit is large and slouchy, I could have sized down one size more even, so maybe keep that in mind. Can agree that it feels like great quality, slightly softer than I had imagined from Scottish cashmere.
