Worth Its Weight in Cashmere (aka Fashion Gold)

Well, the cold weather has finally hit us folks.

Now, for those of you who would take this front of season-appropriate air as a sign that global warming is a myth, I’d like to point out that most are attributing this jet stream to the largest artic ice shelf collapse in 30 years.

Regardless of what the science behind our new-found winter may be, it is time to put away your short trench & bust out your sweaters! Preferably, your cashmere sweaters.

If you’re in the NYC metro area, brush up on your Italian & make your way down to 85 Mercer Street in SoHo. Once there, you’ll be greeted by towering shelves of cashmere at IC Zinco’s Cachemire By The Pound.

The first flagship store outside of Italy to open its doors offers a globally familiar shopping experience; you buy your sweater the same way you would buy your provolone.

Bacilio’s Buyer Beware: I know what you’re thinking, this means that those sweaters sporting larger sizes will also carry a heftier price. Unfair? Perhaps, but suffice it to say that there are plenty of alternatives.
