Rated 4 out of 5 by Bluesers Gorgeous but short
I absolutely love the Jackie shell & matching cardigan (and own several from years past), and was excited to order this for fall. However, at 5'9 the shell is just way too short for me, and even after I sized up it would only work with high-waisted skirts or pants. I really wanted something a bit more versatile than that. The grosgrain trim is a lovely touch and it is lightweight without being sheer. I wish this came in tall sizes because I would definitely order several colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AmyS great shell, but size up!
Love this shell esp because of the gold buttons at the back of the neck-lovely expensive looking touch and perfect weight merino-not too thin. I bought my regular XXS-I'm 5'0" 105 lbs. I definitely need to return it and size up- it's too tight and too short. If I raise my arms up, there is belly showing. Will by a few more, just in XS.

Such a good idea! I'm always on the lookout for a lightweight but opaque wool shell and I thought this would be just the one. It's too short by about 3 inches. J Crew, could you make a Tall version? I would definitely buy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Circe07 Finally!!!!
For a decade I've wished for J Crew to offer a twinset in merino wool. I love the cashmere versions, but they are so expensive it's hard to buy in multiples. The cotton is economical, but it really does not wear well. So I'm beyond thrilled to see these sweaters. I've bought three already, and if the sienna comes back in stock in my size, I'll get that too. If you've worn J Crew sweaters a lot, you won't be surprised by the sizing. I find that a S fits me best in jewel necks and cardigans, and an XS in V necks and turtles; the rule holds true here. The fabric is light but not at all see through, and the buttons at the back of the neck are a very nice touch. I probably would prefer tonal over the gold, but at least on the colors I purchased, the gold is ok. If anybody at J Crew headquarters is listening, *please* keep offering these! And more colors, please!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by HRock Even a size up was too short
I am 5'7 and 135lbs, I wear a small in JCrew shirts. (Note: I have a long torso and shorter legs). Based on the reviews that this was short, I ordered a medium and still found it too short for my liking.
Overall, great quality, and cute colours and I can see how the length is meant to not hang out of a cardigan. However, in an office I need to be able to reach my arms up without showing my midriff :)
