Why Are Cashmere Jumpers Expensive?  

July 18th, 2019 by Sumayyah Nawaz

There’s really nothing that can be likened to the soft touch of cashmere on your skin and because of this, one can actually, for a minute, think that this impossibly soft material is made from the clouds. Another reason why someone would think this is because of how expensive this material is. If the cashmere material in itself is expensive, then surely by extension, one should expect everything made from it to be equally expensive; cashmere jumpers are no exception.

The answer is simple: They are expensive because the cashmere material in itself is expensive.

Why Is The Cashmere Material So Expensive?

The first thing you need to know is that cashmere is made from goats. Yes, goats are the G.O.A.T!
Cashmere comes from cashmere goats, the only animals that can produce those luxurious, highly coveted fibers.

Experts who are into the business rearing cashmere goats have made us understand that a single cashmere goat does not really produce a lot. You only get to harvest the fibers once a year and this is mostly done by combing the “undercoat”, which sheds yearly. Once you’ve harvested, you can get between six to eight ounces from a really good goat initially, but once you begin to process the cashmere, you get about four ounces back.

Don’t make the mistake of confusing the “undercoat” as the hair you see on the body of a cashmere goat. The undercoat is closer to the goat’s skin and must be separated from the outer layer of hair.

This is why it takes about four goats to make just one sweater. and this is why cashmere is so expensive.

Made from soft, 100% cashmere, our cashmere jumpers have been designed with so much detail and style. If you’re going to get yourself a cashmere, you definitely want it to be 100%.

Our Guide To Mens Ski Wear

January 23rd, 2019 by David McManus

Style and substance: can the two co-exist in mens ski wear?

The main objective for assembling an outfit for a day on the slopes is warmth. The basics of dressing for snowy conditions comes down to the layering of your clothes. This starts with an all-important base layer, then building up layers of breathable clothes over this, before putting on a waterproof shell jacket.

If you’re heading to the slopes for the first, or fortieth, time this winter – then MrQ’s guide to the ultimate mens ski wear will provide you with everything you need to know, in order to hit the slopes in style.

The Base Layer

This layer is designed to sit directly in contact with your skin to release sweat and moisture created during skiing. The ideal garment for this layer needs to be lightweight, and be super soft against the skin – the last thing you need during a long day of activities is irritation.

Cashmere is hygroscopic, meaning; it is naturally breathable. As the material is adept at wicking moisture away from your skin, it makes for the perfect garment to keep you cool when it’s hot, and warm when it’s not. More importantly, cashmere is extremely comfortable and stylish ideal for those long days on the slopes.

MrQ recommends our cotton and cashmere Dean T-shirt. Tailored to fit impeccably, and knitted with the finest Mongolian cashmere. Once you have tried this on, no other T-shirt will be able to compare.

The Mid Layer

It is essential that this layer keeps heat trapped close to your body.

The ideal material for this layer is merino wool, due to its soft yet malliable qualitites. Wearing a mid layer that zips up and down allows you to easily cool down during the afternoon coffee. Then a quick and simple zip back up, when you need warmth again.

MrQ recommends our super luxurious zip-up merino wool and highly luxurious cashmere jacket. This garment is versatile, easy to wear, and will enhance both your comfort and aesthetic style on the slopes.

Night-time Relaxation

When the day is over, and it’s time for that long-awaited whiskey around the cabin fire – there’s no better way to wind down than being draped in a pure cashmere robe.

Cashmere is a popular fabric for loungewear as it feels incredibly snug and soft against the skin. The material naturally stretches around your physique, meaning that you can easily move around after a tiring day skiing. Furthermore, cashmere is highly adaptable to various temperatures, due to the high moisture content of the wool, perfect for finding the right body temperature before a well earned rest.

MrQ recommends our Stowe Robe, a luxurious garment that has been spun from the softest Mongolian Cashmere. An indulgent feeling that can only be experienced with 100% pure cashmere.

Quintessential Accessories: Beanies

December 12th, 2018 by David McManus

On the modern menswear circuit, it is now common for a gentleman to combine traditional tailored pieces with beanies, in order to complete a luxurious winter look. This represents the beanies long transformation from being utilitarian cold weather kit, to a desirable high-street accessory.

Quintessential Accessories: Cashmere Scarves

December 5th, 2018 by David McManus

A gentleman’s scarf is designed to last for many years, and during that time, it will consistently provide the neck with comfort, warmth and style. At MrQuintessential we believe there is no better than a pure cashmere scarf.

An investment in a high quality cashmere scarf is a smart investment for 2 reasons, style and comfort. In terms of style, the fineness of the yarn ensures that it’s not too bulky to wear with tailored clothing. In terms of comfort, cashmere material is soft, warm – and, importantly, will never prickle or chafe the skin. In comparison, other materials that are hand-knitted are too thick to tie neatly and anything super lightweight will fail to serve the essential purpose, keeping you warm.

Just like all other accessories, your choice of scarf is very much a matter of personal taste. However, we believe that MrQ has a scarf for every gentleman. Our wide range of colours ensure you have a scarf for any occasion, whether you’re dressing casually on the weekend or complementing a smart business look.

MrQuintessential’s cashmere scarves make for a thoughtful gift, especially when matched with our cashmere hats and gloves. With all our orders being beautifully gift wrapped by hand, your scarf will arrive ready for the Christmas morning festivities.

For a limited time only, all MrQ accessories are 30% off in the winter warmers sale. So treat yourself, or someone special this Christmas, with the gift of luxury cashmere.

Woven from super soft cashmere, the Wisp scarf has a beautiful handle and feels very tactile. This pure cashmere garment is crafted in a basket weave design, with a smart ribbed finish. The flecks of colour in the weave, really make this special, with the alternative colour of Russet also available.

Quintessential Accessories: Luxury Cashmere Gloves

November 28th, 2018 by David McManus

Warm, protective and highly fashionable, gloves are the unrecognised staple piece of a gentleman’s winter wardrobe. The team at MrQuintessential believe in the power of gloves, and explain why protecting your hands with luxury cashmere is a no-brainer.

Stay Warm

There are three main elements that affect the warmth of your hands; the temperature, the wind chill and the wet. Wearing a quality pair of gloves can provide protection against all three of these elements, while remaining stylish and fashionable.

We lose a significant amount of heat from our hands, usually the first area of the body to feel the cold. Once our hands are exposed to icy temperatures, our grip can be the first to go and limits precise movements needed when on the move outdoors.

Insulated cashmere gloves reduce the chances of frostbite by keeping the blood flowing to the hands. Perfect for the slopes or a frosty Sunday stroll.

Why Cashmere?

The feeling of wearing soft cashmere gloves is like no other, they are certainly the front-runner when it comes to winter luxury.

Made from extremely fine fibres that are six times finer than a human hair, cashmere is knitted using a multitude of these fibres. The material comes from the lower hair of special goats originating from India and Pakistan.

Despite being a thin fabric, cashmere has excellent insulation properties that will keep your hands toasty warm. This combination of warmth, softness and comfort means that cashmere gloves are the best choice for keeping you warm this winter.

All MrQuintessential gloves are knitted with 100% cashmere and are available in a range of colours. Stay warm and fashionable this winter with MrQ.

Made from soft, 100% cashmere, the Elba gloves have been designed in elegant dark navy, and have been offset with a contrasting cuff in a great shade of turquoise. They are also available in Charcoal, Black, or Soft Grey.
