Unexpected Changes -
By: TexasSophisticate from Houston, TX
I have purchased the Countryside Cashmere Cardigan in 2 different colors in the past and have absolutely LOVED that sweater. The longer length is great and the style is very classy. However I was most disappointed when I received my recent purchase in a third color. The sleeves are now ribbed as well as the yoke across the back, and it detracts from the classy style of the original design. I would not purchase it again because of this new design. Too bad it had to change. The shorter version is like the original design, but is too short for me. Very disappointed.
Waited kwo years for this sweater to come back, new narrow cut has changed the way it fits and hangs. The one from the past was more of a jacket. Have 2 and love them.

Our fits are being revised in response to overwhelming customer requests and while we regret that you are disappointed with the pared-down fits of this particular best seller, we hope that you will continue to shop with us and give our updated designs another chance.
The "old" styling of this sweater was greatly preferable to this season's styling. Don't like the ribbed sleeves at all, or the new length. Just not as wonderfully warm comfortable as the one I bought last year.
Great quality -
Gave this as a gift and my wife could not have been happier. The fit was perfect and the cashmere had a soft yet durable feel
Agree, definitely not same sweater -
I have a few of these sweaters from past years. I was hoping to get one in every color available! They are my favorite sweater. However, I just ordered and received it this week. By no means is the sweater the same as past years. The sleeves are ribbed. Hate this look. It is more casual looking than the past styles. The sleeves are also snug compared to previous style. I will not be adding all the colors to my wardrobe due to the current style.
Favorite winter cardigan -
By: WhiteRaven from Little Rock, AR
i love the design of this cardigan! The neck buttons up high to keep out cold, or can be left unbuttoned and open and worn with a scarf. The cut is roomy without being oversized. And the length is perfect--long enough to cover everything but still be a flattering proportion for a shorter person. And there are pockets! Love the softness and warmth of the cashmere. This is my second cardigan. I have had the first for three years. It has been worth every cent. Thank you Orvis for this beautiful garment!
Not a quality item -
Looks nice in the catalog; but poor quality...cheap cashmere. Expected better of Orvis , but lately whatever I have ordered has been a disappointment.
not the same -

I have been buying this sweater for a number of years, (despite the fact that the buttons disintegrate in dry-cleaning.) This new design is not as roomy, the fabric feels thinner, the sleeves are tighter, and the new design of ribbing on the arms and back is, in my mind, unattractive. At least they kept the pockets!! The changes are NOT an improvement!

Cashmere Cardigan -
By: AECCOV from Coventry,U.K.
Lovely cardigan - just the right style, pockets, neckline ,and the blue colour which I chose.. I would love to have yet another one in another colour ,maybe an emerald green in the Irish wool which also ticks all the boxes.
