    I ordered the white cardigan and shell and wore it with jeans for the first time. Perfect fit (medium), comfortable and nice casual look. Wish it was available in more colors.

    Classic Fit - 4/9/2014

    The sweater fits well and is quite comfortable. I washed mine before I wore it. It needs a warm iron, but it irons easily. I like the added length, too.

    Not so happy... - 7/27/2013

    I have this product in Safari and I love it. The White one seems very thin and not as substantial as the Safari. I have the Navy color being shipped to me at this time. I hope the fabric is like the Safari color and not the White. You can see a patterned blouse through the White fabric. Style is good, like the pockets, good over a sleeveless top or to take into a cool restaurant.

    Want more - it's perfect. - 7/16/2013

    I am very pleased with this sweater and find that I I'm wearing it almost constantly as it's the perfect weight to cover up summer tops when in air conditioning. I like the straight-line classic styling as well. I want to get more in other colors, but it seems to be out-of-stock. Please continue to make it available.

    The fit and quality of the material is OK, but not right for me. Since it was not stellar, I returned it.

    not for short people - 6/4/2013

    I wish that Orvis had a petite line of clothing. I have found that the length of most of the clothes, and this sweater in particular, are too long for my 5 foot 1 inch body. I even tried to wash and dry it hoping that it would shrink but it did not! (A good thing I gurss!)

    Just What I Needed - 5/22/2013

    I've been looking for lightweight, casual cardigans for a long time. I needed them for travel as well as the transitional seasons in Virginia when you need a little cover, but nothing too heavy. These are perfect. Just the right weight, nice fabric, classic style, and the fit is roomy enough for layering with comfort -- and the sleeves aren't too long, either! It was also available in the two colors I needed most: navy and white. Thanks, Orvis!

    So Functional - 4/1/2013
    By: from McMinnville, OR

    I bought this because I was looking for a cardigan that would go over just about any type of clothing. I can wear it to church, out to dinner, on vacation, etc. I wasn't disappointed.- it's well made, styled, and versatile. A must for any wardrobe.. I would like one in a different color too. However, next time I'll order a size smaller.
