    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    In terms of what? I mean you could be right but missoni knits are at least consistent in pretty much every way.

    Pretty sure a Jil 13 ply cashmere is better than anything.

    jet, you talk a lot about how a lot of companies don't make knits how they used to. Out of curiosity, who, in your opinion, is currently making a quality knit?

    fuck i dont really know anymore because i don't go out and check shit out anymore to see what's good

    all i know is quality has declined across all the major players due to rising costs and less consumer demand

    elder statesman sweaters are some good stuff that's all i can say. you need to touch it to feel it. However on the other hard, design and fit is meh.
    Way overpriced for a sweater 2K+ and 4K+ for a cardigan.

    What's the sizing like on Junya CDG Man? If I'm 6, 160 would I be a large? Seller on eBay is listing chest measurement for a large at 49cm; I'd expect something closer to 20/21 inches, but that works out to about 19.

    Recently bought a knit that's 50% merino, 40% possum fur and 10% silk.

    Intense.

    How does cashmere-chinchilla compare to 100% cashmere?

    I didn't even realize they used it in knits/fabrics, chinchillas are so small (my friend had one as a pet in elementary school) that I figured their hair would be too short for yarn and I've only seen the fur (as in skinned dead animal) on pimp-coat-type outerwear or sometimes the interior of a really high-end jacket from the likes of Brioni or Loro Piana.

    Lil bit, it's more of a melange in person. I'll post up a better pic when it's cold enough to actually wear it.
