Sweaters

Fit

The fit is slim, similar to H&M and Zara, much slimmer than Polo Custom Fit, Brooks Brothers Slim Fit, Banana Republic, J. Crew and nearly all other US retail brands. No vanity sizing, so select one size larger than what you usually wear in most American brands.

The sizes do not correspond exactly with our shirts and suits; their rough equivalents are listed below. Measurements are in inches and take into account shrinkage.

Care

As with all cashmere sweaters, machine wash cold on the gentle cycle. Do not dry on a hanger as this will stretch out the shoulders; lay it flat on a towel. After the first wash the garment will shrink about half inch in every dimension, but will not shrink more after that.

Heated drying will cause excessive shrinkage. Avoid dry cleaning, as the chemicals are harsh on cashmere. It's best to wash your sweaters yourself, but any good cleaner, given these instructions, will suffice.
