Equipment 'Sloane' Crewneck Cashmere Sweater
When I accidentally threw my 12-year old TSE cashmere sweater in the dryer, I resolved to find a replacement cashmere I could love as much. The ruined sweater had been my "go-to" top since its purchase--I would really miss it. I saw the "Sloane" and hoped I'd found my replacement. While it is a very nice sweater--and I plan to keep it--it doesn't quite have the pizzazz of the TSE. What's good about it is the obvious quality of the fabric. What I don't like is the elastic band at the bottom, which somehow makes it feel less dressy. Oh, well. You can never go back!
I have come to love Equipment's offerings and was excited for the cashmere sweaters. Like another reviewer, the cashmere started to pill after one wear as it is a thinner gauge cashmere, so be forewarned. It is not the highest quality I would imagine for the price (only because of the thickness and pilling, not manufacturing), but it is super soft and the color selections are great and tip my bias. I also like that, while tts, the sweater has a refined slouch. I would buy again but knowing the cashmere gauge is on the thin side.
Very soft, very cozy and high quality cashmere sweater. A great classic with a flattering fit.
cashmere for all occasions
I've been shopping for cashmere sweaters this season, and this is the best one for quality and versatility. It's ultra soft and a very comfortable weight. I'm surprised to see another reviewer write hers is see-through (I have camel and it's not). It pairs well with a white tee and jeans, but also a crisp white shirt and trousers/a-line skirts. Looks fabulous paired with a Hermes scarf wrapped around the neck. A must-have that will last for seasons to come. I'm purchasing the charcoal gray as well.
