You know Everlane does men’s basics well. T-shirts, light jackets and chinos are their bread and butter. But cashmere is far from basic. The sumptuous wool garments are an artform, as anyone who has worn a suffocating, scratchy, inferior cashmere sweater knows all too well. And the brand’s Grade-A Cashmere Crew has been a longtime best-seller.

But these days, every brand with a conscience is looking at ways to make its production more sustainable. Today, Everlane is expanding its conscientious offerings with ReCashmere, a new line of men’s (and women’s) sweaters made out used cashmere sweaters that have been collected and respun with extra-fine merino wool.

It’s the first official day of autumn, so the drop comes at the perfect time. And in classic Everlane fashion, there are two simple styles offered: a crewneck sweater and a V-neck sweater. But to set them apart from the thousands of “timeless” cashmere sweaters out there, the colors on offer run the gamut from a traditional black to “spruce” and “lemon lime,” and the detailing employs a handsome vintage aesthetic in the form of wide ribbing and raglan sleeves.

In other words, it’s a perfect combination of old meets new. But if Everlane’s previous new releases are any indication, the new stock won’t be available for long.
