Rated 3 out of 5 by Matt Great sweater -- too long
This is a nice cardigan -- the merino is sturdy, but supple. The fit is definitely slim, even a little tight around the upper arms/shoulders. But I was frustrated with the length; when unbuttoned this cardigan hangs too low. I ended up going with a smaller size in the regular merino cardigan and that seemed to work length-wise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Norcalmommy Women can wear it too!
I'm a female reviewing a men's cardigan. I bought this because I wanted an oversized camel colored cardigan and since there wasn't such a item in the women's line, I resorted to the men's. I'm small framed and I ordered the XS. The slim XS fits me like a woman's small, so it fits me perfectly with room to layer. The length covers my rear, so it's not too long nor overwhelming. The wool is medium gauge and the color is very beautiful. It's a deep camel color which is true to the stock photo. I would recommend this cardigan for men and women. I can't wait to wear it once the weather cools down by 30 degrees...been in the 90s all week!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RIKI9 Perfect layering piece
Who doesn't love merino?
It's soft, light but warm, with a flattering amount of natural stretch. This is perfectly cut, allowing me to layer with a Ludlow blazer whilst still flashing some shirt cuff. I'll be buying more.
Well played, J Crew. Well played.

I am 6'3 and about 210 pounds, I ordered the XL and I must admit that I am thrilled with my purchase. I usually have a difficult time finding cardigans that fit me due to my height and weight, but this one looks perfect. I can wear a black tie and have a blazer over if needed. Can't wait to wear a red tie with this cardigan during the christmas season. I got it in black btw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Richard Fantastic Cardigan, but runs long.
I love these merino wool cardigans. I had last season's version, which was a perfect length and fit, however, this season seemed to be unusually long - almost like a woman's cardigan. I still love it and wear it often, I just wish it was a little shorter. For the record, I'm 5'8" and bought an XS. Regardless of the fit, I'd recommend it to a friend any day.
