by AnnVeal Surprisingly soft
I had this cardigan on my wish list forever, and it finally popped up in my local store. I tried on the "gray" cardigan in my usual size S (32D, 133lbs, 5'6", size 4 in most tops), and thought it fit TTS. I agree with other reviewers in that the gray color has a *touch* of brown in it, but it is still more gray than anything. The sleeves are 3/4 length, and the scalloped trim on the sleeve hems matches the neckline. For a crew neck cardigan, it does dip a little lower than usual so it's not choking you, but still is very modest. The overall length is a little shorter than I prefer on me, mostly because of my long torso, but it is by no means a cropped sweater. I was pleasantly surprised by how soft it was; I did not find it to be itchy at all. Classic anthro gem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Haligonia crest cardi
This cardigan is a great basic in a closet. It's fairly classic, but with the Anthro flair (in this case, the crests#.
Colour: yes, it's brown, not grey.
Fit: It fits on the small side. I got an xsmall #my usual size unless it's a cropped cardi), and it's borderline. The buttons are slightly gaping, but I'm sticking with it because it will stretch over time.
Quality: I expect that this cardigan will be in my closet for years. The knit is excellent quality. The snap buttons are felty loveliness and are really secure. The crests fall nicely and are secure.

by aliasQT Cute sweater with unique design
I was not sure about this sweater when I saw it online but when I tried it on in the store, I had to buy it. The scalloped design is unique and eye catching. I like that the buttons are snap closure buttons so the sweater is easy to button up and unbutton. I am allergic to wool but I do not find this sweater itchy. I purchased the brown (it's a cross between brown and grey) in my usual XS and like how it fits and hangs. I am 5'1 and 100 lbs and as you can see in my pics, the XS does not hang as long as it does on the model. It seems to run a bit small and is form fitting on me but I like it this way. I plan to wear it alone buttoned up like in my pics or open with a thin cami. If you prefer to wear it as a cardigan over a shirt like the model, you may want to size up. The XS measures 15 inches from underarm to underarm laying flat and buttoned. It is 16 inches long from front center neckline to bottom of the sweater.
