Rated 3 out of 5Â by Abesha Great fabric and color... Not quite perfect.
There's a variation on this idea each year... This one is a little military in person, because of the length and brass snaps, and ran smaller than I expected. The boiled wool and navy color are great, but expect to wear it closed to get the effect; otherwise, it just looks like another drape-front cardigan. I'll wait til next year.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jewelgirl TImeless and beautiful
I have missed out on many of the Gro Abrahamson/Casch sweaters over the years by trying to hold out for a sale, inevitably they always sell out so last week when Anthro had their flash sweater sale I immediately ran down to my local store. This sweater is lovely, it's true navy like the other reviewers said and ran a size small for me. I generally wear a size 2 or 4, 5'7'', 130 lbs. In sweaters i usually take a small but in this case had to size up to a M. I had no problems with pockets gaping as previous reviewers mentioned. I would take note though, I tried on one small and 2 mediums...both of the mediums fit differently with one having a much more attractive drape to the collar. I would suggest, if you love this sweater but something fits a little off to you to try a different one on in the same size, odds are that one might fit better.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Naeco I love the draped collar
I love the draped collar. Unlike some of the other reviewers, the draping on my sweater is exactly like the photo. For any help, I am 5' 4", with a 34 DD bust and I have a small back and narrow shoulders and I bought the small, and it fits really well. I thought I might need to return it and order the M Petite, but I am super pleased with the fit. I generally buy either S or M depending on the style, so if you're in between like me, size down.
And it is more a sweater, but also a coat. But then I live in San Diego, so a coat to me is not a coat to everyone.
So chic. I love this, and so does my husband.
