Rated 4 out of 5 by tuffy cashmere hoodie
great, comfortable, warm, well-designed hoodie
neck is very nice and cozy, sleeves are slimmer than body proportionately, which is very comfortable, nice, and on-trend.
the only negative i would say is that the quality of J Crew Cashmere isn't as good as it used be (over 15 years ago). it now pills extremely quickly and is a lot of work to maintain.
my Cashmere sweaters from another (Italian) brand have never pilled in the range of 3-25 years i have had them.
overall, this is a hoodie that i reach for over and over--the design, weight, and warmth are perfect for many lifestyles and daily endeavors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shopgirl Good, but could be great...
Really like the design of this sweater. Although the length isn't quite long enough. Maybe I have a long torso? I'm 5'4" and 110 lbs but I had to get the small in order to have a looser fit for the arms (I have skinny arms) and have enough length. The boyfriend crew cashmere sweater is a much better fit and I love that sweater. If this sweater was tweaked a bit, it could be just as good. Oh and the cashmere isn't really that soft. In fact, it feels like wool. Not sure why, but it does! I thought people were being picky when i read the reviews, but I see that wasn't the case at all now that I've tried it on myself.

Very pretty, comfortable and warm. I bought the ivory and it goes with everything. It has a swingy shape so balances out my pear shape. Perfect weight for air-conditioned rooms in summer. I'm 5'6", 133 lbs and the small is perfect. Might also get he in navy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Piper love the fit, do not like the feel
I'm having a hard time with this one. I love the look, fit and thickness. I do not like the fabric...it seems scratchy to me and I also do not like that it was made in China, it is not as soft as Italian cashmere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jill Even better than I thought...
At 5'8" with a longer than average waist, I decided against buying it many times because reviewers mentioned it was short. But a sale prompted me to give it a try in the Neon Dahlia colour, as I was in the mood for something bright during this dreary winter. I love it so much! I was pleasantly surprised that it was not too short or boxy on me at all. The colour is saturated and gorgeous. Nice weight of cashmere. True to my normal size small. You could go down if afraid of "boxiness" but beware that the arms will get tighter. If you get it on sale, you can always get it nipped in a bit on the sides at a tailor, but it's is not supposed to be a body conscious style and I think that some reviewers are not as used to that - it is a relaxed, looser fit. I'm going to keep an eye on different colours for a future purchase.
