Product Details

Summer's over. Time to break out the cashmere. We work with one of the best Italian mills to create ours—it's famously soft, comes in completely custom colors and, if you treat it with love, it will last forever. This one is the foundation for a really great outfit.

  • Italian cashmere in a 12-gauge knit.
  • Hand wash.
  • We recommend folding (never hanging) and storing in tissue paper.
  • Import.
  • Online only.
Size & Fit Details
  • Semifitted.

Collection cashmere shell

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Runs small & is too sheer I really wanted to love this shell, but I hate it. I always order a size 4 or small in J Crew clothing but I definitely needed at least a medium in this. I am not sure even a medium in length would have worked, however. To summarize: it is too small, too short, too sheer & is low quality cashmere. Very disappointed because I was really looking forward to wearing this top for a business trip. It is much lower quality than what I expect from J crew, especially since I paid full price!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sad and Disappointed It's that time of year again for wearing my favorite cashmere sweaters! I can't wait for Fall and Winter so I can purchase the new styles and beautiful colors. I've been a loyal customer for years and am sad to see how the cashmere is not of good quality. I have compared past years cashmere with this years and last and found it to be of poor quality. Not only that, the cost goes up and quality goes down. Cashmere sweaters are not suppose to itch and feel rough against your skin. Come on JCrew, let's get back to giving your customers quality cashmere. November 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely shell, rich color, very versatile. I purchased this shell in the berry melange color. The first time I wore it I received multiple compliments from strangers while out to brunch in D.C. One woman even asked to feel the fabric. It is very sharp looking and the color is rich. I have already purchased it in more colors as it is so hard to find tops these days that work both professionally - under a suit jacket or cardigan - and for the weekend with trendier skirts or pants. The shell does run slightly small, but the actual fit is terrific because it covers the underarm area sufficiently for wear in a conservative office. October 3, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Too short! Have wanted this shell forever and finally bought it. Put it on and was so disappointed. Way too short! Just barely "hit at hip" as they stated in the description. Also ordered a cashmere tee and it was longer but I wish JCrew would make them longer as most styles now are. I'm 5'7 and usually wear a M or L. October 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Versatile, wardrobe staple I have this cardigan shell in navy and gray colors. The cashmere material is soft, perfect thickness. Can be worn alone, under a blazer/jacket, or paired with dress shirt underneath so I get multiple stylish outfits (dressed up or down). I'm petite so I actually think it runs little long but works well when worn over a shirt. I will probably order another one in black soon. October 28, 2014
