I have to admit that I had no idea that Beretta made clothes. My father is a keen clayshooter and I know that he would like a Beretta shotgun but they cost a small fortune, and of course you have the classic lethal weapon movies (that have not stood the test of time very well…) where the handguns had a prominent role, but menswear? Well, many hunting brands have a clothing line as well so why not. Found this jacket on Ebay and was attracted to the wool/cashmere fabric from W. Bill and decided to give it a shot. Got it

Seems like the popularity of cashmere is always on the rise. Nowadays you have brands that have built a major part of their reputation on their use of cashmere fabrics. Cashmere is certainly a lovely fabric, but it has its drawbacks as well. It wears more easily than regular wool and it has a tendency to stretch and lose some of the shape when worn frequently. It’s a great fabric for scarfs, ties or pocket squares, but when used for tailoring I actually prefer when the cashmere is mixed with wool. That way you can get the touch and sheen
