Factory long open cardigan (FA14, 02107, $75) runs XXS – XXL. Color choices are heather dusk & navy. 37% viscose, 35% nylon, 28% wool. Hand wash cold, do not wring or twist, lay flat to dry.
Size S – heather dusk – I am usually a X. This felt just a little big. If you decide to wash it by hand, it might shrink a little. For that reason, you’d want to go tts. I felt that the S was a little bit and I’d be inclined to get the XS and commit to drycleaning.
A little camo.
I’m in the open cardigan with the stone collage necklace. I really, really liked the sweater. There were mentions of previous seaons’ cardis pilling. Same style number. I purchased the cardi, but returned it. I’ve had a few bad experiences with J Crew sweaters and decided this wasn’t worth the risk. Yesterday I recvd the marled rib-stitch cardigan (review of non-marled blue) in XS and love it. I’ll risk pilling on that one. The sleeves are a bit tight on the XS, but I think they’ll loosen up enough. I like the closer, non-boyfriend fit of the XS in that one.
Factory warmspun swingy elbow-patch sweater (FA14, A9050, $78) runs XXS – XXL. Color choices are heather graphite, heather natural, heather sky, indigo and red currant. 37% viscose, 35% nylon, 28% merino wool. Hand wash cold, do not wring or twist, lay flat to dry.
Size S – heather grey – If you want to keep the swingy shape, go w/your usual alpha size. If you size down one, it will fit closer to the body, but keep it mind that it will be a little more fitted in the chest.
My elbows are higher than where the patches are hitting. Im 5’0″. If you have longer arms, the patches will probably hit closer to your actual elbow. I prefer the real leather over faux. However, I know how
Factory geometric graphic merino sweater (FA14, A9031, $88) runs XXS – XXL. The color is called heather graphic (HGR). 100% merino wool.
Size S – This is a great retail re-do. It’s very similar to the retail version. It runs TTS imo. I usually take S and would choose that in this sweater.
Good fit. Nice print. I love grey.
* Boys classic v-neck sweater & boys cotton sweatshirt sweater – If you can fit boys 14 or 16. The upside on the v-neck in particular is it won’t be as low as the women’s.
* Girls Casey cardigan – A good deal w/the addtl 30% off. Other retailers don’t offer the same beautiful brights as J. Crew so I’ve purchased a few for Mini G. They washed and wore well.
* Warmspun french knot sweater – What a good deal if the Gilt City works for 30% off. It would net $33.25.
