Thought I'd take a chance on this sweater and I'm so happy I did. The zippers make it seem a little bit more modern and versatile to me. You can un-zip the side or shoulder a bit to show a peek of a crisp white tee. The merino wool has a soft hand, is not scratchy and has a nice drape. I love how the front panel of the sweater is knitted in a very subtly different pattern. You have to inspect closely to notice. I normally wear a medium in J. Crew tees but for sweaters, I sometimes go up a size as I don't like a snug fit. I bought this in a large even though it's described as having a relaxed fit. The bust measurement is 40 inches so it gives me the perfect bit of casual oversize fit without being sloppy. I purchased the Heather Dusk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by stars Fantastic sweater!
I like basics that have a bit of a twist and this sweater fit the bill. The sweater is a little heavier than the tippis offered at Crew and is a great addition to a fall/winter wardrobe. I really like that you can zip and unzip the zippers to change up the look. I normally wear a Sm at Crew, but found the arms/shoulders a bit snug and ended up sizing up to the Med, which ended up being the right size ( a bit looser, but not baggy at all). I also really appreciate the fact that the sweater is made of 100% merino wool and not blended with a synthetic fabric. Really glad I made the purchase!

I ordered the gray in two sizes; I'm normally a medium in most Crew items.
When I tried it on, my first thought was that I couldn't believe it was wool, I had to check the content tag because the sweater is so soft and not the hint of itch or scratch. It's so comfortable I can wear it alone without an under layer. I did end up keeping the large rather than the medium so that I could wear it over a shirt as the weather gets cooler but overall it is true to size. The zippers really give it an edgy look. Bottom line, I liked it so well I ordered another color.

Great sweater... Great concept... Great material... I love this sweater so much I ordered another color after it arrived... So stylish and the zippers make it more than a typical pullover... I think its true to size but you could size up for a looser fit especially if you plan on wearing something underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cb11 great updated basic
I have the similar sweater from last fall, with the zippers on the hips and shoulders. I liked it, but when the hip zippers were unzipped, it made a weird shape and was rather unflattering. I normally wear a small or medium in jcrew tops, and usually like my sweaters a little relaxed, so I went with a medium in this sweater, and I'd err on the larger size if you're in between. I'm 5'8 and it falls to the bottom of my hip bone. The wool is slightly itchy, and I'd definitely wear a shirt underneath to layer so it wasn't against my skin, but the angled zippers make this sweater way cooler than last year's version, and the angles also make it more flattering. I didn't expect to love the brown color as much as I did, and was really surprised at how cool it looked. Another great updated basic, jcrew.
