Rated 3 out of 5 by girligirl Decent transitional cardigan
I ordered this sweater in 2 colors to wear as transitional fall pieces. I ordered my usual XS but probably would have been better to order XXS as they are boxy and roomy through the middle. The upside; the sleeves aren't as fitted as some other J.Crew cardigans so I can layer a denim shirt, blouse or a thin cotton sweater underneath. The downside; these sweaters are very thin and boxy and the knitted pockets pucker and make the sweater look cheap. I have only worn one and I'm considering returning the other. These are not the same high quality merino knit as my sweaters from 3-5 years ago. It seems that every sweater I order from J. Crew gets thinner and the quality seems lower. I have beautiful cardigans from '09 that look better than more recent ones that are brand new. What's going on with the quality of J. Crew clothes?

Rated 2 out of 5 by JMG77 Not the same...at all.
I have several Merino long cardigans from past seasons. They are great for the office. I need to start replacing some of my cardigans and I was hoping that this would be an acceptable replacement. Sadly, it's not even remotely the same sweater. It's boxy, short, and the fabric isn't nearly as nice. And why have they gotten rid of the color Navy? Midnight is not navy. No, just no J.Crew.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DMSF Too Boxy, not long enough.
Ordered this cardigan, as I love the other long wool cardigan J Crew offers. But, I think they are phasing it out, as there is almost 0 selection of sizes and colors. Saw this cardigan and thought it would be similar---"YAY" I thought, "I found a substitute"! No such luck this cardigan is quite a bit shorter, and VERY boxy. Will be sending back. My search for long cardigans continues...

Rated 3 out of 5 by CrewzyLion Too short!
I have several merino cardigans from JC from past seasons and they are all much longer than this one. This one hits me right about mid hip which, for me, is not a flattering length since it hits at the widest point of my lower body. For reference I am 5'6". The color and quality were nice, just not what I was looking for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by lalala59 Different Cut Than Last Season
Not the same long cardigan as last season. This is definitely shorter with a boxier cut. Will not be as flattering on some figures.
