Rated 3 out of 5Â by Flynn72007 Meh
I was hoping this would be my "go to" sweater. I live in a warm climate and this sweater would have been great on a cooler day but it has a bad smell to it, it is ill fitting and not worth the money (imo). However the worst part, the buttons are awful, just awful!! They are a cheap thin plastic....ugh, why? The shoulders run small and short making for a tight fit across my back (I don't have broad shoulders or back) but the body fit fine as did the sleeves but I can not get past the buttons. I may sound snobbish but they just cheapen the entire look of this sweater; I've seen better buttons on sweaters from Old Navy and Target and they are half the price. The collar is beautiful and the colors are great but I just couldn't overlook the buttons!!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Anthrobsessed2 IT SMELLS REALLY BAD
I love the style, the fit (minus the small shoulders), the design, and the thickness. However, it smells like chemicals, why??!! I aired it out for a week and was still very stinky. Maybe Anthro should look into organic fabrics please!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MsKate Lovely, cozy and warm
This sweater is wonderful. I fell in love with it when I saw it online and ordered it during a free shipping promo. I love the shawl collar and mod cable pattern. Like other reviewers, I noticed the sweater had an odd smell initially, but when I aired it out, the smell went away. I have no enduring complaints. I think it is a sweater that will continue to get softer and more comfortable with more wearings. Unlike other reviewers, I did not think the stitching was too loose or the sweater posed any layering challenges. It will pill as any wool/acrylic or cashmere blend will do. Pills are easily tackled with a razor. No need to miss out on a great sweater. I live in Minnesota and am wearing this sweater today on our first really cold day. I am cozy, warm and happy.
