Rated 3 out of 5 by Ashe Design has changed
These have been my go to sweaters for years; I have several colors and always wanted a Navy one, but they sell out quickly. This year I finally got one and was a little bummed by the fact that the design has changed. Due to its smoother and thinner fabric, the collar no longer stands up when the sweater is unzipped (the point of a half-zip sweater). The sweater also runs a tad smaller than the previous design, as this fabric is a little tighter, so order a size up if you'd like to wear a dress shirt underneath.

Fit was a bit small. XS sizes seem to vary considerably per different style. Somewhat frustrating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by emilydc Great sweater
My husband has these in nearly every color. They are the perfect weight, well-made and very handsome. He can easily dress them up or down. The zipper provides a nice design element, in contrast to the standard crew- or V-neck sweater. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kdub Perfect Sweater for Fall
This sweater has a modern fit, and looks great on my husband. It is not a boxy cut, but not tight either. The half-zip looks great over a casual button-down. Moderate weight.

Great sweater overall!
The only concern I have is that more recently J.Crew's wool garments pill more than they used to which isn't what should happen as quickly as my more recent J.Crew purchases do, having purchased many cashmere and merino wool garments from them for at least 10 years now.
But a great buy if you can get one (or more :) when they are on $ale certainly!
Lastly, need to add a few less-than-pedestrian colours in the future, particularly the merino items, that might include some of the more interesting colours that are more typically limited to the cashmere offerings.
