Direct from a staff member at Loro Piana, the high, high end cashmere shop: Turns out that the cashmere sweaters at J. Crew (on sale now for $98.00), described as made of “the very best: luxurious cashmere from a world-famous mill in Quarona Italy” are being made in the Loro Piana plant by Loro Piana, using Loro Piana cashmere. The difference between the two sweaters? About $1000
