Cashmere jumpers and good socks for men

Cashmere apart from Brora, and usually I get DH these socks but want an alternative. He always wears jumpers out on the elbows - they literally only last weeks. Also socks must be navy, warm and suitable to wear with a suit. No branding on the jumpers either.

thinking that too but they aren't pure cashmere.

Pure cashmere socks do not wear well - they will be in holes if worn on a daily basis very quickly.

Opps sorry not cashmere socks just jumpers just quite good quality socks they seem to have deteriorated at M&S

Why does it have to be pure cashmere if he is wearing his jumpers out all the time? Perhaps a cashmere mix would last longer.

He finds it warmer his office is so cold, I'm going to try woolovers certainly more reasonable and I think 2% off at the moment.

Uniqlo and Gap. Even ds2 hasn't managed to wreck his Gap cashmere jumper - that is a sign of remarkable quality!

How about a jumper with suede elbow patches?
