Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite Purchase, try on multiple sizes! This is my favorite purchase so far this year! I bought this in store and noticed that the construction is not consistent so I had to spend time comparing several sweatshirts to choose the best one. My style is more on the minimal side and I've been wearing this sweatshirt with jeans and plain pencil skirts. I think it looks better with no jewelry (I find the neckline is not really made for adding necklaces). I usually wear a size small but sized up for this sweatshirt and it made a huge difference. Size small was unflattering and weird while size medium was cool and stylish. Try on multiple sizes to see if one works better! When I first got this sweatshirt I was kinda hesitant that it might end up being one of those items that only I think is super awesome, but other people think is not flattering and just don't get it. To my surprise, I've gotten several compliments on it from strangers and even my non-fashiony boyfriend said "hey thats cool". Yay! August 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sophisticated Cool! Ok who doesn't love a great sweatshirt! But this is no ordinary one! The fabric is super soft and feels like the one you used to have that you washed as soon as you wore it over and over again...not too thick or too thin. But the huge difference is that is has style! It's cropped, but not too cropped, boxy but not too boxy and fits right in with what's happening with fashion right now. Dropped shoulders, 3/4 sleeves, slightly longer in back than front and no embellishments! I ordered the XS and it fits just right...5'4" 117# 32C. I can't believe it hasn't sold out yet! In my opinion it's totally sophisticated cool! Congrats to the new designer Juan Carlos Obando for coming up with this! And thanks J.Crew for putting it in your collection! June 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! This is not just any "sweatshirt". The silhouette is very flattering, modern and super stylish. This sweatshirt rises above all others! The fabric is of super high quality as well. I already know that I'll be reaching in my closet for this again and again. I generally take a size medium in J Crew tees/tops (34D) and this fit me in a medium as well. So very pleased with this! June 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by wish I could wear this everyday Alas, I cannot. But it is super soft and everybody loves it. Most of all me. June 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Odd neck line So, I am wearing the top as I write this review. I like the top, the asymetrical design and the three quarter length on the arms, but when it comes to the neck I am a tad disappointed with the fit. The top is boxy and runs a little short in the front. The shoulders are dropped lending the arms to be roomier. The neck.....hmmmmm.....the neck is odd becuase it does not "sit" on your shoulders/neck the way it should. It is raised a bit and wider than I would like. So, the neck never actually stays in the same place, it moves all day long. Aside from that bothersome detail, the material is excellent. And, I am wearing it with the light grey all season Eaton pants to work, add some nice silver jewelry and it is dressy enough for my office. When I get home I will either put on shorts or jeans and I could go out to dinner...... July 24, 2014
