    I have a few polos which I really like. I'm wearing one right now actually. Fit seems to vary.

    Can't comment on the cashmere if that's what you're asking about.

    Cashmere quality is very good, hence the price. As good as Malo and Cucinelli. I am always on the lookout for Yoox sales. You can often score a cashmere Cruciani sweater in the $120-150 range.

    for cotton and cashmere items these are superlative, or cashmere only?

    Thanks!

    cashmere

    cotton is hard to really stand out. I have some of their pique cotton and regular cotton polo type shirts. nice, I find it harder to stand out in this type of product. Their sweaters are really something though. They are for sale on this site by a friend of mine. I have also sold them, would not pass thme up for much.

    Reviving an old one - any suggestions on sizing? I seem to recall them being on the very slim side. I like a fitted sweater, but it must accomodate a short sleeve shirt under it and I believe I tried on a Cruciani sweater a couple of years ago that was actually quite tight. If I typically wear a 40 suit, would one recommend a 40 or 42 sweater? Thanks for any advice.

    not only are Cruciani sweaters slim fitting, but I find them to be a tad short in the length. Amazing quality though. I would suggest you size up. I'm a 39/40 suit, and I wear a 50/52 suit.
