Rated 3 out of 5 by JennS Hit or miss...hoping for a hit this time
I own two of these hoodies, and one of them (Nickel Grey) is wonderful quality and a staple in my wardrobe. The other (Spruce) is awful. I own a lot of cashmere and I take proper care of cashmere items (everything done according to The Laundress, J Crew's go-to cashmere authority), and I've cared for both pieces the same way. I bought the Spruce hoodie about 2 years ago, and within 4-5 wearings it was completely covered in overall fuzzing that has never gone away. I know cashmere pills sometimes, but what happened to this sweater is WAY beyond pilling. It looks so bad/cheap that it's unwearable outside of the house. I paid full price for it and I regret buying it. I haven't bought another popover hoodie since, but just took a chance and ordered a new Heather Grey hoodie, so we'll see how that goes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jane great style, not so great cashmere
Bought the exact same sweater in 2010, grey, same as this new one. By comparison, the new one is exactly the same in style, fit, but the cashmere is thinner and scratchier. The quality is really marginal. By comparison with the older one you wonder whether this new one is really cashmere at all. But if you just consider the new one by itself without comparing it to the older one, it is OK, if you get it at the sale price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jujie Disappointed in quality
Great fit, love the style. Purchased two of these. Unfortunately, both have begun to unravel at the sleeves after wearing twice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lana Extremely thin
I have a few JCrew cashmere sweaters from a few years ago, and when I received this one (in snow) I was disappointed - it was much thinner than those I have. It actually did not feel like cashmere at all. It also pilled after I tried it on at home!!! Quality is unfortunately not there any more..
