Rated 5 out of 5 by NCGAL Love the long sleeves
Sweater runs true to size. While I have to size up in the Clare cardigan, this one runs true to size. I ordered up figuring it was similar to the Clare, so it's a little big but will look fine with a blouse or shirt underneath it. I ordered another one because I'm absolutely in love with the long sleeves. I ordered my normal J.Crew size and I'm expecting it to fit perfectly. Very happy with the feel of the fabric and the buttons and the fact that it's a full length sleeve that I can cuff. For reference I am 5 foot 10, 150 pounds. 36C, and I got a large in this cardigan the second time where I originally bought an extra large that was a little loose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nuage Comfy, versatile cardigan
This is a great wardrobe staple--it's soft, comfortable, and attractive, the perfect thing to keep in your bag in case it gets chilly. The sleeves are a bit long, but that's not too big of a deal to me. The only problem I had was that I experienced a bit of gaping when I buttoned it up all the way. Oddly enough, I noticed this for the peach color but not for the navy one. I'm not sure if they actually fit differently, or if the gaping just wasn't noticeable with a dark color. For reference, I'm 5'3, 115 lbs, 34-27-34, D cup, and the xsmall works best for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeveaUpNorth Classic cardigan in so many beautiful colors!
I found this cardigan to be lovely. It fits true to size and has a classic silhouette (not close fitting and not boxy). I did find the sleeves to be about one-two inches to long and I have average-long length arms. Nothing that can't be fixed by simply a roll or tailor. Good mid-light weight textile quality. I've worn one sweater several times and haven't noticed any pilling fuzz. I couldn't decide on which color I liked so, I ordered five for this spring/summer. Thank you, Jcrew Mercantile for offering so many beautiful color choices at such a nice price point.

Rated 2 out of 5 by albuquerqueanna dissappointed again
I have not made many purchases on JCrew factory site. I'm starting to wonder if they are even made by the same company that makes regular JCrew apparel. The quality of everything I have purchased here is disappointing. I don't think the lower price makes it worth the purchase. I would rather pay more for higher quality. I bought several of these sweaters, and they are so flimsy. I wore one of them yesterday and the shoulder seems are pulling apart. I may have to look elsewhere for apparel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LabLover Disappointing
While I understood that this is not the Clare cardigan and this product has full-length sleeves and hits lower (on the hip), I was very disappointed. The fabric is thin and the cut is just plain boxy. I loved the Peach Fuzz color, so I really wanted it to work, but there is just no shape to the sweater. Oh, and the Ripe Papaya, while it looks almost like a nice coral color on line is straight up orange. Is isn't bad, just not papaya. I just hope Factory brings peach and other springy colors to the Clare cardigan. I gave it two stars because the fabric is soft, so the sweater wouldn't be bad to wear if the style is what you're looking for.
