Rated 1 out of 5 by Nancy Nice fit but terrible quality!
I purchased this for my brother over Christmas. He had hardly worn it once when a small hole appeared. This whole got bigger and bigger over time and now it has a huge hole! I think J. Crew has issues with some of its merino wool items. I have five or so Tippi sweaters and while most of them are fine, one of them developed a similar hole which grew over time. It's a shame because this sweater is nicely cut and very appropriate for spring. It runs a little bit small for J. Crew so I would size up. The quality is just inexcusable though!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Luke Small and poor quality
I purchase plenty of JCrew clothes, and this sweater runs particularly small. I returned, sized up, and it fit fine. After three wears, however, I notice a hole both in the armpit and neck area. That shouldn't happen for a $50+ sweater.

Rated 2 out of 5 by tyty Slim fit, but holed after a dozen wears
This merino wool sweater developed a hole on the back after about a dozen wears. Now, this isn't the worst for thin merino wool clothing which is prone to holes, but I was hoping for more wears regardless.
Other details: it's soft and not scratchy. The fit is just about as slim and tapered as you're going to get from a mall brand, which is to say not that slim and tapered, but a Large fit my ~40 inch chest and ~30 inch waist acceptably. The Cobblestone color is actually darker and grayer than it's depicted in the image.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Steeze Good staple sweater
I've been buying jcrew merino sweaters for years and they are well made and comfy. Overall I'm happy with my purchase but this particular sweater was a little tighter fit than the other colors I already had.

Rated 1 out of 5 by VKG7 POOR QUALITY
I purchased this item based on my experience with recent purchases from J Crew. So far so good. However, I should have read the other reviews first, because after only a few wearings I also discovered a hole adjacent to the arm pit. Not the quality I expected from the brand, which is a shame, as their style fits my build.
