Rated 1 out of 5 by Beauannie Poor quality, what?
After reading the review about the quality changes in this sweater I decided it was a fluke due to my faith in J.Crew. Oh no! It was awful! The cashmere, if it really is cashmere, was thin and scratchy. I have this same sweater from last year and it fits well and is so soft! This one, in the same size, is skin tight, short, and the worst thing is that one sleeve is 11/2 inches shorter than the other! I had read that J.Crew was introducing lesser priced garments. I'm afraid, after returning several cashmere sweaters this year, that they have made the mistake of dropping their quality. But, the price on this sweater was the same or higher!

Rated 2 out of 5 by sonoma68 Thinner and smaller than in years past
I'm disappointed. I have bought this classic J. Crew spring sweater in several colors over the past two seasons and have loved it. I couldn't wait for it to come out in new colors, and I was excited when it did. I love the gorgeous new smoky heathered blue color. So I bought one right away in my usual size, XL. I had to return it. The sweater is not only sized noticeably smaller (and shorter) than my older ones, but it is also much, much thinner, meaning it would have to be worn with something underneath (for me, defeating the entire point of featherweight cashmere). It also looks like it would snag very easily. I'm really sad!

Rated 2 out of 5 by LakeHart Not up to par
I have several of the cashmere sweaters and tshirts, including past yrs of featherweight. This one is too thin, runs very small, and price is too high for super thin quality. This one is going back. I have a 2nd that did not arrive as color is back ordered. I will cancel that one and try something else. I have noticed that other things ordered recently have been running small. Can someone from JC comment on sizing changes?

Rated 3 out of 5 by ML123 Why must these pill so quickly?
This sweater is so soft and so perfect, but like all J Crew cashmere, pills on contact. I wish I could afford to wear this once and throw away but I can't so until the quality improves I will find a less pill-y brand

Rated 3 out of 5 by KATUNYA Soft... Very small
Bought it at the store on sale, so I feel justified. It's very small, usually take xs in cashmere with lots of room, but took a small and it fits nice. I don't know how it will wear, since all cashmere pills terribly. But it feels soft, basic grey color on sale, for the price of Tippi. Go up a size!! Should fit nice. I like the shorter sleeves. Overall not bad and feels very soft.
