Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Buyer Just received this sweater and it is even more beautiful than pictured in the catalog. It has a very nice weight to it so will hold its shape on and off the body. I don't like the buttonless/fastenless look but because of the weight of the fabric and generous cloth it will stay in place and not look sloppy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made and attractive I didn't love this when I pulled it out of the box, but warmed to it once I tried it on. The knit is soft and the colors are clean and cool (none of the warm, rusty tones I often dislike in PC knits). The reddish color is a slightly softened garnet, the gray is a cool slate with an undertone of green, and the white is slightly grayish by virtue of the darker yarns lying beneath the lighter color. It can be worn with a white under layer. Construction is top notch. Although the knit is very light, it still has enough weight and silkiness to drape well. The only thing I am not loving is the jacquard finish, which reminds me a little too much of the old double-knits I remember from the late 1960s and early seventies. I feel that the price for this is a bit high, as well. I decided to keep it despite my reservations because I know it will be useful to dress up my daily uniform of tee shirts and jeans or black trousers.
