Stealth Luxury: Cashmere Blankets Made in LA

September 12, 2012

Greg Chait is an unlikely purveyor of luxury. The bearded, sandaled Venice, CA-based designer behind cult luxury brand The Elder Statesman set out to make the world's softest cashmere blanket a couple of years ago; he's since expanded his operations to include cashmere hoodies, ponchos, and sweaters.
