Black Goat Cashmere, the maker of luxurious casualwear, has just opened up its first Toronto shop on Bloor Street West, between international heavyweights Cartier and Agent Provocateur. It’s the Vancouver-based company’s first store outside of its home town, which is why most Torontonians probably haven’t heard of the Real Housewives–certified shopping destination, or its dedication to all things cashmere-related. Now, Yorkville residents and local shoppers can get their hands on Mongolian-made cashmere sweaters, dresses, pants, ponchos, scarves, turtlenecks, and even something called a “leisure suit” that will run fancy television-watchers over $600. At least for those prices, shoppers can trust that their purchases will keep them enveloped in a warm, cozy cocoon—kind of a treat on the Mink Mile, where down the road at Gucci a similar price tag will only score you a pair of painful-looking stilettos.
