Italian featherweight cashmere shell in gingham

Italian featherweight cashmere shell in gingham is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color different than thought I own two of these gingham shells in gray and navy/snow. I think quality is wonderful, reminiscent of the older J.Crew cashmere. Thank you for listening!! Luxuriously soft next to skin and the perfect weight. I was excited to order the new color with mauve and burgundy, but when I received it, realized it is brown. It didn't match the wine/burgundy tones that I was hoping. True to size and maybe a bit longer than other JC shells.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp Spring Look I bought this vest in the navy and white and I wear it with a white round neck shirt I purchased in the fall from J Crew. I love the combination and receive so many compliments when I wear it! Fit is perfect and the cashmere is so soft and lightweight! This is a MUST for your spring wardrobe!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice shell but fits huge! I don't understand why some reviewers recommended sizing up, as this fits at least one size too big for me. Perhaps mine was mislabeled? Other than the sizing, this top is nice and is made with good quality soft cashmere. I got the heather snow and the colour is pretty and muted. I really hope that J Crew could resolve its inconsistent sizing issues, since I don't want to pay extra in returning my clothes or on alterations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from classic & current love this exaggerated gingham-- fun to wear as a vest over a crisp white or small patterned shirt or under a jacket-- featherweight cashmere so great for laying this time of year! went up a size from my usual S for a bit more length and, again, to be able to layer-- if pair with cardigan, kept with my small in the cardigan

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality for an of the moment piece The good: It's gingham. It's not one-off throwaway quality. The bad: Weird sizing. The medium fit huge, the waistband on the small was going to ride up every chance it got despite overall better fit. I kept the medium, washed it to let it do its shrinking, and will soon take it to be tailored. Over all I like it a lot though.
