Luca Faloni, experts in all things cashmere and linen, already had our wardrobes well and truly looked after with their AW18 collection, filled with (almost) every versatile style imaginable, from touchably soft V-necks to the rarest of finds: the cashmere hoodie.
Now, they’re readying us for a cold snap by bringing roll necks and chunky knit crew necks to our attention, via their stunning Highlands lookbook.
These are two styles that every man should have in their wardrobe for the colder months. Whether you’re heading from the piste to the party or for some seasonal weekend shopping, a roll neck and chunky knit will never look out of place.
What’s more, spoiling yourself with knitwear made from high quality cashmere means you’ll probably not want to take them off. But don’t just take our word for it – you can literally get yours hand on them by heading down to their recently opened London Store on Marylebone High Street.
The Roll Neck
If you ever had any doubts about your ability to pull off a toasty roll neck sweater, let us stop you in your Highland tracks. It’s far easier than you think: just keep it simple by avoiding over-accessorising.
As for how style your roll neck, for a chunkier knit, pair it with a slimmer trouser like chinos or slim-fit jeans. For a fitted style, like these Luca Faloni Cashmere Roll Necks, style under a blazer with textured trousers and a pair of Chelsea boots and you’ll be looking the part.

Now a roll neck is a jumper that is certainly going to get you noticed (for the right reasons if you heed our advice). However, wear one every day and you’re entering into Steve Jobs and Simon Cowell territory. If that is not a look you’re going for, it’s worth having some other styles in your closet.
Luca Faloni’s latest Chunky Knit Crew Necks are as timeless and easy to wear as they are luxuriously soft.
The Chunky Knit Crew Neck
Easily paired with a simple T-shirt or a crisp shirt, the crew neck is arguably the most versatile style of them all. And now that Luca Faloni have made it available in chunky knit, you’ll never need to worry about choosing between function and fashion when you’re going out on even the most bitter of days.

When it comes to cashmere, Luca Faloni really are the experts, which is why the items in this luxurious collection are all made from 100% pure cashmere from the celebrated Cariaggi Fine Yarns Collection.
Considered the most prestigious spinning in the world, Cariaggi has over 60 years and three generations of experience in producing the best quality yarns – selected in Inner Mongolia, crafted in the medieval Italian town of Cagli and knitted in Northern Italy.
It’s easy to see why Luca Faloni chose them as their sole supplier. They pursue the highest quality, and that’s something we should all aspire to – including the ludicrously soft jumpers we fill our wardrobes with.
