Rated 5 out of 5 by Bill Great Basic Sweater
I've been very satisfied with these sweaters. I have a couple now. I'm six feet tall and 160 pounds and I wear the medium. The only thing I would like is for the body and sleeves to be a bit longer.
The (small) amount of cashmere keeps it soft and comfortable, but as with any sweater that is primarily cotton it stretches out. The bottom hem and cuffs stretch after a few wears, but the nice thing about this sweater is that it's machine washable. If I want to tighten up the hem and cuffs I just put it in the dryer for about 5 minutes after I wash it, then transfer it a flat surface with a towel to dry it. I have also had some luck stretching the sleeves and body this way - when you lay it down to dry just pull it slightly and when it dries it will be a bit longer.
The sweaters do feel a bit delicate, but I've consistently worn them and washed them and they've held up very well. Definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Susan I love these men's sweaters.
I love how the men's sweaters fit - they seem to have a little more coverage, higher neckline and longer sleeves than the women's do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jillian Great present!
These light sweaters are so soft and the colors are really nice in person. I bought a few as presents for my father-in-law in Italy, as J.Crew's slim-fit styles always suit his body type really well - my husband's too! My discerning mother-in-law is even impressed with J.Crew's quality, so it's win-win! I only gave it 4 stars, however, because it only contains 5% cashmere (95% cotton) and the name of the item led me to believe otherwise. Perhaps this could have been included in the item description.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sally I love the men's section!
I wanted a 'relaxed' fit soft comfortable sweater and found it in the men's section. Sometimes the women's section is too 'girlie' for me. I love the classic and simple but elegant look of men's clothing.

I have several of these - the medium slim fits just right (I'm a small in regular fits and a 38R in Ludlow). The blend is perfect for most weather and keeps it shape. Great color selection, too. Try one, you'll like it!
