Rated 5 out of 5 by phoebe Great for women, too
I love this sweater. It is a classic lambswool sweater, so some might find it a little scratchy, but to me it is lofty, warm, and comfortable. I'm a Petite XS in J Crew Women's (5'0", 112lb, 32B) and the size 14 fits me perfectly. I have longer arms for my height but the sleeves are perfect. I've had mine for over a year and it has held up wonderfully. I wear it often instead of a sweatshirt. Love the color options, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by justvisiting Perfect Basic Wool Sweater for Son (and Me)
My son has these sweaters from last year (HO 13). SIZING: This years style is running about one inch wider in the body, & about one-half inch longer in the body. The sweaters held up to washing & air drying (lay flat). ITCHY? No but can feel the lambswool. PILLING? Yes. We are buying more for him this year in new colors, & I purchased some for myself. My 12 y/o son is thin & long limbed so I always purchase his clothes one size up if I can get away with it. Size 14 fits a little big but not sloppy. WOMEN'S FIT: I'm 5'7", short waist, long limbs & slim. Usually wear size 4 in JCrew tops/jackets, & boys size 16 is loose in the body in a good way, ends just above bottom of bum, & I can cuff the sleeves back one time. I tried size 14 but like the size 16 for the slouchy/loose look. Hthr Amber (great w/light blues), Htrh Twig, Hthr Cabernet & Hthr Parsley - really nice colors. Love these sweaters!!!

The size 12 fits like a size 14, and the wool feels scratchy to the skin. Disappointed with JCrew's sizing inconsistencies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sonstimes4 Only birthday request of my 10 year old son!
"Mom, I want a wool sweater." Best place to go- J.Crew! We live in South Dakota and there isn't a store close enough to visit hence, the order being placed online. I added custom monogramming to the sweater with my sons' initials and the shipping was fast. We received this in time for his birthday celebration. The green color is wonderful. He absolutely loved it and has made his Christmas list already full of more J.Crew wants! Thank you for making an affordable, quality sweater for those young men who have a taste and enjoyment of finer threads.

The wool in this sweater is so soft & no complaints from my son of it being itchy. Great fit, stylish cut- not overly boxy. Warm sweater but not too warm to be worn with layers beneath. Very happy with this purchase!
