Details

Designed and produced entirely in Italy.

100% Extrafine Non-Shrinkable Pure Virgin Merino Wool, spun by Tollegno 1900 (Biella). The term 'virgin' refers to the wool sheared from the fleece, completely natural, not regenerated or retrieved from other industrial processes. The Woolmark certification guarantees pure organic virgin wool.

The color is Blu Zero, darker than black, with a special sheen in changing light.

The jeweled buttons are made of matte gold metal and hand-stitched.

Comandante is a cardigan designed to be functional and durable. The key to its longevity and resistance is the tight and dense yarn work, requiring more raw material compared to similar mass-produced products. This item, in fact, boasts the use of about 1 kg of wool per piece, or an entire reel.

All these details justify its value, making it an unparalleled and timeless piece.

Style

Perfect for casual Friday in the office; in the evening paired with denim and a t-shirt; appropriate when replacing a blazer, with a tie in formal settings; worth trying over a lightweight turtleneck on colder days; comfortable at home with cozy outfits.

Chameleon-like and versatile, it embodies the concept of relaxed formality.

History

During the Crimean War, due to the constant temperature changes on the battlefield, James Thomas Brudenell, the 7th Earl of Cardigan and commander of the British army, had to undress multiple times a day, necessarily dismounting and removing his headgear.

In battle, time is precious, and the commander decides to resolve it his way: he takes one of the thick V-necked woolen jumpers from the standard issue, and cuts it down the chest, adding buttons to join the two flaps.

Thus, the first cardigan was born.
