Rated 1 out of 5 by Lorenzo Again
While I agree that this is a well made cardigan, like last year's sizing issue its a bit long! It felt like wearing your grandpa's well worn, stretched out cardigan. I do not understand it at all. A lot of customers complained about this very same issue about last years Fall cardigans and sweaters and yet, Jcrew did not seem to listen. Slim size should be just that, SLIM. I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ZacG Best Fitting Cardigan Out There
I say the cardigan fits larger than expected because it's listed as a slim item. Usually, or at least in my own experience, slim means tight(er). This cardigan fits true to size. I'm usually a medium with anything Jcrew. This was the same case here despite its potential of being a smaller cut.
As far as the material, the feel, it's nice and soft, and subtly heavy compared to a cotton cardigan, but much lighter and softer than a lamb's wool. It has substance, but not too much.
I would recommend this, and even recommend getting a second.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Volleyballstar High quality merino
I have J.Crew merino cardigan from last year, and also ordered this one. Last year's is much worse, this year is a lot better. Larger center strip where the buttons are and the button holes, which results in a much cleaner and more modern fit. Last year's you could see gaps in between the buttons sometimes, so if you were wearing a white shirt under a black cardigan, it didn't look good. I was surprised at the quality of this cardigan. Frankly, I think it's their highest quality wool sweater, even better than that soft spun stuff which is more fragile and not nearly as nice. They did this one right!

Rated 5 out of 5 by wolf solid purchase
Slim merino wool sweater after the first month of wearing would qualify as a solid purchase. The fit is good, it is a slim fit. I am 5'10", 150 lbs, 31" waist, 40" chest and a medium fits me fine. No bagging at waist, not tight in shoulders. Quality of sewing looks to be good on my item. Have worn it under sport coats & jackets. Provides a nice, neat look with added light insulation. How it wears & launders, that will be addressed further down the line. Right now I would recommend it, as if I had to, I would purchase it again, no buyers remorse.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EddieSpaghetti Slim Fit. A Tailored Look Right Off the Rack.
When I say it "Runs true to size", that’s how a garment should really fit. Clean cut, tailored look, smooth and soft merino with a wide placket that lays flat and gives the cardigan substance. I own it in green and blue. A great staple in my wardrobe.
