Rated 3 out of 5 by Megan I like the cut of the sweater
This sweater is a nice cut and weight but is covered in pills after one wear. I bought every color but one so I am really disappointed. If sweaters aren't getting holes after a few wears, they're pilling like crazy from both factory and the regular site.
Get it together J.Crew, what happened to your quality?

Rated 1 out of 5 by CapeGirl Such a disppointment to the big Teddie fan!
The Teddie Sweater is my all time favorite sweater. Of course, I am accustomed to the lightweight slub version. This rendition for winter is thick wool, boxy, nothing like the Teddies I love, perhaps it needs a different name. Please, J. Crew Factory, bring back the original Teddie for Fall, thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DenverGirl Did I get a different sweater than everyone else?
A lot of reviews for this sweater call it boxy and bad-fitting. The sweater I tried on in-store and purchased today isn't remotely boxy. (I'm 5'7", 125 and got a small.) It fits well, seems to be a quality weave, and is super soft. I got the yellow b/c it was different than anything I own and it's a gorgeous color. Couple things to keep in mind: the model is shown wearing this sweater tucked into a pencil skirt...that isn't going to work in real life. The sweater is too heavy for that. It's also hand wash only which, frankly, sucks. I may return it for that alone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TaylorD Not the same Teddie!
Ok, so - I have four of the slub cotton Teddie sweaters. I love how they fit & that's what I was expecting with this cotton/wool version. I could not have been more off the mark! I ordered Bright Plum which is one of my best J Crew shades. It's slightly duller than the pic shows, as well as a featherweight cashmere cardi I own from retail in the same hue. That said, the sweater itself is... not great. The arms are huge. The body is also larger than the cotton version. I'm going to keep mine because I got a good deal on it - gonna run it through a wool cycle in the washer to see if I can get it to shrink a bit. Otherwise this will be relegated to weekend-only wear. Bummer because there are some great color choices here! Please bring back the Charley sweater... that one is my all-time fave. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kare4 Nice Sweater!
I'm puzzled by the negative reviews of this sweater, but perhaps it just depends on your body shape and how the sweater hangs. If one is looking for a form fitting sweater, this is not it. Nor is it super loose. It fits just right for me. I am a 38 bust and the large fits me perfectly, so I would say it is true to size. Since I am short-waisted, the length is good, hitting at almost mid-hip. The whole sweater just skims over my body, so it's flattering. I don't mind the thicker band at the bottom--I think it helps it not to bunch up when wearing. And the yellow is a gorgeous, golden, sunny color! Love it!
