This was to replace my original Pure black cashmere polo neck, which I've had so long I can't remember when I bought it. It is heavily darned under both arms, and its days must be numbered. As so often happens when I order like for like, the style has changed slightly. This one has ribbed cuffs and hem, as opposed to the original tubular ones, which I prefer. Also, the old one was shaped, this is a looser fit. I prefer the original, but I suppose styles have to change. It's a perfectly adequate replacement.
Thank you for your review, as you say over the years styles change, we are glad you are pleased with your purchase, if there is anything else we can do for you, please contact us anytime, thank you for your feedback.
