Rated 2 out of 5 by Shopaddict123 Thinner and longer than last season
I bought a merino v neck sweater last year in purple, and it was the right size, perfect thickness, comfy. So this year I bought one again in navy, to my disappointment, the fit was different this time. The sweater length and sleeves are a lot longer than last year style, and the material is thinner! I am not buying this again. Don't change what works, J Crew! I am slowly discontinuing my J Crew purchases at a steady rate, as I began to notice the quality drops. At some point I may stop buying J Crew altogether, so don't sacrifice your quality!

Rated 2 out of 5 by JennyG Great style, but poor quality material
I used to love J.Crew wool in all of its incarnations -- lightweight, merino, boiled, V-neck, dolman, you-name-it! These garments used to be beautiful, versatile, high-quality, and utterly timeless. However, quality has really suffered. These sweaters start pilling on the first wear! I have merino and other wool sweaters from five years ago that look better than the ones I've bought over the past few months (and I've bought quite a few hoping the pilling issue was just an anomaly). Please, J.Crew, change suppliers!

This is my go-to sweater for fall and winter. I own it in several shades. It fits true-to-size. I usually wear a size Small and this fits well for a casual look, but for a more fitted, dressier look, I size down to an Extra Small. The merino wool and feel nice against the skin. Overall, good quality.

I have this sweater in about 10 different colours because I love the fit. It fits much better than the Cashmere V-neck becauase it is more slim throughout the body. I wear them to work with jeans and knee boots and its' perfect. Also, it's warm enough in the winter if you wear long sleeve tee underneath.
The only complaint I have - J Crew PLEASE make the arms longer (this goes for ALL of your sweaters)!!! I am 5'6" and wear XXS in J Crew - so you can imagine, the arms are always too short. This sweater in particular sits about 2 inches higher than my wrist bone. I'm not exactly looking for a 3/4 length sleeve. I'd much prefer to push up my sleeves than have them too short.

I own this sweater in 2 sizes for 2 different purposes. Size M for work w/ Minnie pant or Pencil Skirt. Size L for more casual w/ leggings or jeans. It's the perfect weight. Warm enough but not too bulky. I own this sweater in several colors. Wardrobe staple!
