For me it is very likely to renew each season, and already be open in the next year when we have not yet launched the latest collection.
There suddenly brands which I do not necessarily have spoken last year, and I will gladly present this year simply because the theme of the collection has changed and seems much more simple and easy to wear.
This is the case of Hircus specializing in cashmere, which took a completely different direction this year
I Hircus: business model, and product collections
1 Direct distribution
Just as brands such as Standard House, Workshop Individual or Hast, Hircus opts for a direct distribution model, without intermediary, which initially supported on a fully online distribution.
The physical presence was more gradual and measured and started with pop-up stores, including Echoppe Marais done in partnership with Hast, Charlie Watch House and Guillemette. In full during the Christmas period 2014-2015 and balances, it was the perfect test, which met with great success.
Hircus logically has suddenly opened its first store at 7 rue des Commines last September. A beautiful advanced to showcase a product that really enjoy the touch, and most people prefer to buy in store rather than online.
2 Collections: the basic preppy sportswear heritage
Jean-Nicolas had described to me the first collection as a young and colorful. Between orange, royal blue, green or bright red, the models had a strong preppy accent (and epaulettes were there for a sportswear touch).
In short, it was for me too connoted not neutral enough for my taste.
Two pieces had already attracted by against my attention: the contrasting trim cardigan sweater and shawl collar. It was declined in a sumptuous cream and I integrated at two dressup.
It was exactly the kind of sweaters sober aesthetic but the worked shape that unfortunately sees enough in the world of cashmere .
At this point, I think only one thing: “Too bad the whole collection is not in the image of this sweater.”
I had not shared with the founders, but I had no idea that they would answer my prayers with the Heritage line.
I remember most in three forms:
-The classic round neck sweater (or button-down): the crew neck is rather tight and very thick (which sticks pretty well to a legacy product), and it goes well with the button closure on the shoulder
-The cardigan shawl collar: this is the purpose of the test so I’ll come back then (but huge favorite)
-Hoodie: second favorite from this collection. Those who follow me since 2010 understand this strange comparison: I have not managed to find cashmere hoodie drinking a quality / fair price for the Monoprix hoodie. This is now fixed, with obviously a quality cashmere and finishes that has nothing to do with what was proposed Monoprix at the time.
It is far from gaudy colors of the first line. Hircus here rests on basic colors: light gray, charcoal gray, navy blue. Some original features still have liked me.
The round neck sweater bordeaux:
b The second collection: the Heritage line
Indeed, the legacy theme is easy and fits into what many menswear brands have for years.
Why this collection is interesting? Because nothing was done in this theme there in cashmere, and especially because it was really well executed.
We find the classic crew neck sweater buttoned at the neck, the trucker collar, V-neck, shawl collar and hoodie. Here is an overview:
On the hoodie and cardigan, the pockets are sewn by hand. The shawl collar cardigan is mounted by hand.
The buttons on the sweater buttoned at the neck are not leather but in resin, a material more durable and especially more resistant to washing than leather.
The material has
This is in Inner Mongolia as Jean-Nicolas and Louis Erard will seek their Cashmere. They are also about twice a year and talk about their journey on Facebook and Instagram.
I chose this Article exceptionally leave aside the technical aspect of the matter (to focus more on style, where the big value is located): Hircus speaks very well on this page, and BonneGueule the already very well treated in his brand test.
Remember that we are on a very good price / quality (and for the moment, everything fits very well after a month of regular port).
b The making
The production is not left to chance: it is supported by a workshop in southern China, human size (150 employees) with decades of experience in cashmere.
This step knitting thus takes sometimes knitting books that have almost disappeared, and that allow the handmade finishes such as collars and pockets.
II Test du cardigan Bolor
I had not had a shawl collar cardigan for a while: I was looking for in a basic color, with a well proportioned neck, beautiful finishes and not too thick.
It did not have to be cashmere, but it cardigan Bolor met all my criteria.
1 The quality finishes
The neck has
The neck is hand-knitted and holds quite well.
The proportions are accurate and can be played on a classic made by closing all buttons.
Or a more modern rendering, with a long neck, leaving the top button open.
The exercise was difficult for buttons: he had made the rather crude and authentic to resonate with the theme Heritage, but too large leather buttons were too coarse compared to rendering finest cashmere. These wooden buttons contrast well and are in good stack register.
The pockets are not plated but are hand knitted cardigan inside for better fallen.
The shoulder seam is neat.
2 Style Tips
As pregnant sweaters, the maternity cardigan chunky knit is fine, but it automatically excludes the port under a blazer or jacket well cut a minimum (unless you want to look all enmitouflé).
The only model in wool permits, the shawl collar cardigan Six & Sept / BG through employee reduction process, but we’ll be right on another budget (285 euros).
Yet a shawl collar and lapel, it goes perfectly together and it easily gives an outfit a little worked: should necessarily spend so much for this report, and quality and taking into hot?
Cashmere is therefore Ideally allow for a cardigan shawl collar that is both thin, but that is as warm (which would not have allowed the fine wool or cotton).
Rendering means is a bit with the open top of the button which gives too destructurized collar relative to the jacket.
Buttoned all the cervix more easily find its form that stands better under the jacket, button wood is also much more developed.
In addition to be worn under a blazer, you can also wear it underneath a big structured mesh (of a different type anyway, avoid superimposing shawl collar) as this Masada jacket Marchand Draper (test and photos come):
b Style tips
Although it is a cardigan shawl collar, it is not about the big cable knit sailor fisherman. If you want to wear a shirt underneath, I would avoid weaves reminiscent of workwear universe (or chambray denim) and I cantonnerais me to those characteristics of formal shirts(cotton poplin or dobby / oxford if you want to add texture ).
I felt pity cashmere does not have the right to as many different styles and forms the stitches wool (of course, is more difficult to work): Hircus was suddenly filled a real shortage in this market there. This cardigan is perfect for those who love the shawl collar, without necessarily wanting chunky knit style that is bound with, and at a much more accessible budget (against, it will inevitably be somewhat more fragile than a large mesh, it will to care).
The cardigan Bolor is available here at 179 euros.
Formal Rating: 6/10 (We are on a more formal and precious material that the big classic mesh, it largely happens if you do not work in banking / finance / audit)
Note casual: 7/10 (An intermediate layer easy to integrate with winter outfits just worked and shawl collar brings much originality)
Risk taking: 1/10 (No indication against-specific, unless you do not take care of your clothes)
Price / quality ratio: 9/10 (Hircus already offers quality cashmere: it now offers more advanced yet easy to wear styles I really did not find much to complain about it)
