Rated 1 out of 5 by Shoequeen Wonderful design idea... BUT made with CHEAP WOOL!
I purchased two of these sweaters and was really excited to have them arrive and wear them. Well, after only a few days of wear (2-4), each sweater is now covered in giant pills on the body, armpits and arms. They look horrible and worn out!!!
I look at them and am very disappointed in being tricked by good reviews. My sweaters are less than a month old.... BUT look like I purchased them many,many years ago, or bought them at a thrift shop, or a garage sale. Wonderful design idea... BUT Executed in the WORST/CHEAPEST WOOL AVAILABLE!!! Lately this seems to be a norm with J.Crew sweaters in this price range.
I used to say 'I LOVE J.CREW", But many of the resent garments are being produced with the cheapest fabrics available. Am starting to re-think where I spend my hard earned cash!

Rated 2 out of 5 by aTallDrinkofWater absurdly wide sleeves
I ordered this in my usual alpha size (L). I have several Cambridge cable v-neck sweaters from past years in size L. This year's version is nice and soft with a looser fit in the body, which is fine with me, but the sleeves are way, way too wide. The sleeves could be at least 50% narrower. (I am 6 ft tall with broad shoulders and slim/toned arms.) The sweater looks ridiculous as is. Sizing down wouldn't even help. Maybe if you're just looking to layer underneath this sweater and not wear it alone, the wide sleeves wouldn't be an issue, but I wanted to wear it alone or with just a cami underneath.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KristyElizabeth Little Snug, Little Loose
The arms on this are loose which I don't have a problem with, the body is roomy, which I'm not going to complain about during holiday dinner season, however and maybe it's just me, the chest is snug. I'm keeping it because I think going up a size would make it look like I was wearing my boyfriend's sweater but I do wish J. Crew had cut this a bit differently; providing the same amount of room for the "girls" as they did for the midsection and arm area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sheels Classic Sweater in lovely colors!
I have 6-7 shades from couple of years collection. These sweaters look classy on a button-down shirt and formal trousers work wear.
Absolutely love the colors. It fits well and holds its shape for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bunnie1 Ivory V-Cable
The V-Neck cable sweater is the perfect weight to wear with my tissue turtlenecks. I love the ivory, it's classic. The merino is nice too!
For ref., I purchased a XXS, I'm 92lbs. 4'11. Not baggy, fits great.
This sweater is a keeper!
