Style Stars Yarn Spinner “The cashmere that we see in the world is so frickin’ clean and preppy,” states Greg Chait , the 33-year-old founder of the luxe lifestyle line The Elder Statesman. In addition to artisan pieces such as ultra-soft sweaters and 10-pound blankets, plus pillows and throws in the screening room at Soho House that catapulted him to cult-favorite status, Chait recently launched a lower priced capsule collection of knitwear, TYRO by tes at Barneys, and opened a by-appointment showroom in a West Hollywood home. This year, following his mantra (“There’s a need for well-made things on multiple levels”), he and a Scottish friend are bottling The Elder Statesman vintage scotch from barrels bought at auction.
