When I saw this sweater, I was super excited! I loved the herringbone and the gorgeous jeweled collar.
It arrived today and I have to say that I'm disappointed. The fit seems off...I'm typically a S in J Crew sweaters, but this one seems somewhat boxy and does nothing to flatter me. I wonder if sizing down would help or if then perhaps, the arms may be too tight.
The sleeves, I suppose, are bracelet length. You can see where they hit on my arm above. The sweater is made of 50% alpaca and 50% wool, so it's a bit itchy. I'm not super sensitive and if I loved it, I could deal with it...but for those "delicate flowers" out there, this one's probably not for you.
On the positive side, I love the neutral colors...they would be perfect for fall. and the jeweled collar is gorgeous and adds some sparkle, making this a very unique sweater. Nevertheless, for the $178 price tag, it would have to be love...and it wasn't.
Have you seen/tried this sweater? If so, what are your thoughts?
