One of my very few crew necks: as I wear regularly shirts, I think that vee necks are more suitable, I also like the old fashioned look about them, whereas the round neck ones appear more modern.
This one is a Cesare Attolini jumper produced by their own company and mill Fioroni in Umbria. It's 1ply 100% cashmere with an astonishing fine and dry look and feel, also very tight knitted. They state to only use the best white cashmere and to wash the garments using the water of the near Trasimeno Lake.
The colour is melange and defined as "saffron", and it's actually more vivid as it appears in the picture. Pilling should be hardly a problem with this kind of knit.
