Dollhouse Coat (thrifted)
JCrew Men' Cashmere Sweater (gift)
James Jeans (thrifed)
Report Leather Boots (thrifted)
Free People Bag (gift)
Aside from the fact that I obviously need to shave the pills off, this sweater has been pretty fantastic. I've had a few JCrew cashmere sweaters and was not impressed with the quality, even taking care washing them didn't prevent them from falling apart in less than a year. This sweater however, I think it could possibly survive a nuclear holocaust, That's how rough I've been on it! I usually wear it as a work sweater or when I'm working outside because cashmere is SO warm, especially with a long sleeve underneath. (It also doesn't itch like wool, I love how warm wool is but man, it drives me up the wall with the itchiness.) The cashmere on the men's is at least three times thicker than the womens' version and it's pilled a little, no holes! It's sort of sad that the men's are such higher qualitly, you'd think that companies would know women like nice stuff that doesn't fall apart just as much as dudes.
