Rated 4 out of 5Â by FreePeoplePerson Does have long arms, but they "work"
I've actually got short arms, even for my petite frame, so I often have issues with normal sized sleeves. These sleeves are TTS/fitted until the lower forearm and then they bell out with the zipper as shown. Either way, they seems to stay rolled up, without sliding down or unfolding, which is great!
I can see how some people dislike the length of the sleeves. However, I found them to be cute, even if they were nearly over my hands. I also felt that they looked cute rolled up. You can either roll them up ignoring the zipper or unzip half way and roll up, so you have a sort of flared cuff.
The rest of the fit is pretty TTS. Even though the fabric is a VERY soft fleece-jersey combo, it doesn't stretch out too much. It retains it's shape through the day. I sized down because I wanted a slightly more fitted look and feel.
I also liked that you can take the two flared pieces in front and kind of wrap them around yourself in chilly weather and it looks cute with a little brooch to hold them together.
Bottom line: I'd have been sad if I'd passed on this due to the comments about the sleeves. Super soft, cozy and still looks like you made an effort. Versatile and a seems well made. Good price point.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by shannabelle Excellent, soft, warm cardigan
I absolutely love this cardigan! I wasn't planning on buying one when I went shopping but I couldn't resist. It is so soft and decently warm too. VERY flattering! I am usually a Large (and sometimes Medium) in Anthro clothing, but in Bordeaux I always wear a Medium, so that is what I got. I probably could have even sized down to a small if I wanted a tighter fit in the arms. I'm 5'4" and while the sleeves are long, they're cute and cozy and work with this cardigan. They aren't overly long either, just come to about my knuckles. I got the black, but if I could afford it I would go back and get the green color too.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Lallie Would have bought it but for the sleeves
I really wanted this to work as it would be a great everyday staple which could be worn with work-out wear or jeans but as previous reviewers have stated, the sleeves are way too long. I tried cuffing them but because they are fluted and have zips it just wouldn't work. Otherwise everything else was perfect. Loved the green color, the cozy jersey material and the fit was pretty good. (Tried my usual XS - 5'7", 115lbs), and it fit well although maybe it could have been a smidgen more tailored in the back. Such a shame about the sleeves. Maybe some will like the fact that they come down to the knuckles but this look always overwhelms me and makes me look as though I'm playing dress up.
