Despite initial trepidation about purchasing this rather costly sweater I decided to commit and am so glad I did.
Based on reviews there have been quality issues concerning the quality of cashmere used in their basic sweater collection, however they did not cut any corners when it came to the production of this sweater.
The cardigan is made of the FINEST premium grade cashmere. The cut is classic, the cable is modern, and there are quality details not mentioned in the description like seamless hand linked shoulders. And the genuine leather woven buttons are nice too!
It would be great to see this item return in the fall/winter in a less costly fiber like wool or alpaca (no synthetics please) so more of us can buy this classic item. Could become a J.Crew classic!

This is an expensive sweater -- so I waited a while before purchasing it...I decided to pull the trigger (at 30% off).....glad I did. This is very high quality Italian cashmere -- heavy and soft. Rich camel color...Most likely the softest cashmere I have owned. Given the weight it will be perfect on cool fall days and absolutely stand-in for a jacket.
Cashmere quality is great and the construction is very good as well -- woven leather buttons are a great touch. I said it is true to size -- in truth it may run a touch big -- I'm usually a medium but could have gone with a small -- think it will come down to personal preference on fit. I would say order your normal size.
Sweater easily stands-up to those costing much more.
