Rated 5 out of 5 by Bill Solid Sweaters
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 PatrickBateman A true slim fit
This is probably my favorite sweater. The color is great, and it is very soft and comfortable. It is a true slim fit. I am 5'7" and weigh 120 lbs, so I usually buy extra small in most brands (including J. Crew). But extra small was too tight on me, especially in the arms. So I exchanged for a small, and it's perfect: fitted, but not clinging. I often have an issue with sleeves being cut too wide, but that is not the case here.
Do realize that this is not the chunky sort of sweater which is highly warm on its own. It's thin and very finely knit. If you plan to wear it outside in winter weather, I would suggest layering it with a tee and/or button-down, and a warm coat.
I have not washed it yet, but I think it would definitely shrink in the dryer. I plan to wash it in cold water and spread it flat on a towel to dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Neel Phenomenal Fall/Winter Sweater
I have this sweater in 5 colors and cannot recommended it enough.
The cotton-cashmere material is very soft and the slim fit makes the sweater perfect for both casual and dressy purposes - I routinely wear it to the office in lieu of a button down shirt.
Just be careful when it comes to washing - I wash this in cold water in the most gentle cycle and air dry it flat. Do not wash it with anything containing zippers or buttons as they could nick at the seams of the sweater.
Overall, this is a very high quality sweater that is great for casual or dress wear. You cannot go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lisa Great for women as well
I have four of these sweaters. Unlike a 100% cashmere sweater, it's washable; unlike a 100% cotton sweater, it's a bit warmer and sleeker. I do recommend washing on a gentler cycle with only similar fabrics and air drying (or light tumble drying). It's great for wearing under a coat in the winter and isn't too hot inside. I recommend this sweater for both men and women.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steveh The Perfect Sweater
I love this sweater. I purchased one last year and the quality of the sweater this year seems to be much improved. The sweater is warm when you need it, but not heavy at all (in fact it's super light). The material is very soft, it washes well at home (on delicate and dry flat). I bought 2 (charcoal and blue) and both look awesome. They can be dressed up for the office or with a collared shirt underneath. Or, they can be dressed down with the sleeves pulled up and paired with your favorite ripped jeans. The fit is slim, but perfect for me. If you're working out, your muscles won't be hidden under a ton of fabric (can you say "gun show"?), but on the flip side, neither will your beer belly. But let's face it, if you have a beer belly, you aren't shopping in the slim section. I got mine with an extra 40% off and they were crazy cheap - but worth 4 times the price. Buy one of each color , now. You won't be disappointed.
