If you sell it for less than the chunky cardigans it’ll likely be on the cheaper side. Cashmere is worth paying up for
The chunky cardigan is 4-ply, 7 gauge, 1 KG of pure Merino.

We are planning 2 cashmere sweaters.

The first is a simple 12 gauge, crew. 15 micron, 35 mm Inner Mongolian Cashmere. Target $158 USD

2nd is a Cable Crew. 7 gauge. Also 15 micron, 35 mm Inner Mongolian Cashmere. Target $225 USD.

Anyone ask about belts being sold as accessories? Could use some good 30 and 35mm options in various leather colors.
Working on some new ones

So stoked for the cigar linen. Just picked up the set, sized up for the pants.
Been wanting a quality mustard sport coat for a little over a year.

@spiermackay there doesn't seem to a mill listed. Where is the fabric from?

Received my first pair of S&M trousers. MY one minor nitpick is that the pockets are so shallow! Certainly like them overall, though

Unfortunately not.
That's a shame but thanks for answering. Just out of interest, I thought you'd said that in the stores and in general, most people preferred the normal cut and the Neapolitan was more of a niche, styleforum thing. Is that no longer the case?

No. Most people still prefer the normal cut, BUT with things the way that they have been the past year, most people have not have a need and have not been buying tailoring. The Niche (menswear crowd) who are still interested in tailoring have. So we turned more of our tailoring towards the niche market.

Shallow? What pants did you pick up? Should be to at least mid thigh.

as long as the cashmere doesn't instantly pill like Uniqlo. I paid a lot for my colhays one but it is noticeably on another level.

I got the medium grey fresco in contemporary. Definitely no where near my mid-thigh, but I'm kind of tall so that might not be a good point of comparison on me.

Dang man, what are you putting in your pockets? I find mines to be long as hell
It might just be me! But when I put my hand in the pocket my wrist bone is exposed, feels weird

I'm not going to compare to Colhays. But definitely better than Uniqlo.

Our goal is to offer high value, not to be the best at any cost, that's for luxury makers and I can bet that Colhays will make a nicer cashmere.

On the flipside we're not trying to be the lowest price either. That's a race to the bottom with it's own set of economical, environmental, social and ethical problems that we don't want to be contributing to. The challenge is to offer the right balance and that's why I think it's rare to be successful in this space. But we're trying.

AND, for the price, though not cheap, the cashmere is a great value given the quality we're offering.

You know what won't pill?
The whiskey suede trucker that you're hopefully having constructed for me as we type...
