This is my second purchase of one of these. I love this lightweight jacket. It is not a "sweater", but more of a T-shirt cotton knit fabric in my opinion. A lot of the reviews are accurate even if they are negative, so it all depends on what you are wanting. The red is bright true red which I like.

It is a very well crafted jacket for the price. When you open the jacket and see the inside, you notice that they even took extra time to cover the end of fabric with bias tape. Sleeves have two layers of fabric. I am wearing the jacket on top of short sleeve T-shirts in the morning / evening of summer when it gets a bit chilly.

No offense to all the other reviewers, but I was expecting a jacket more of the weight of a Neon Budda cotton knit jacket. Therefore, I was disappointed. The other reviewers are correct when they describe it as lightweight. The material is extremely thin.
The buttons are cloth covered and give the jacket a dated look.
Maybe it is just the cut, as I am large chested, but I also thought the styling tended to make me heavier on top than I actually am. I would not buy a second jacket. Instead, I would invest in another Neon Budda jacket, also are sold on this website. They are of much higher quality, and I can see in comparison well worth the higher price.
I gave it 3 stars in deference to the other reviewers, who must be considerably thinner than I am and have higher tolerance for the thin material and odd button choice.

Love this jacket but for one thing: the sleeve fit around the forearm is not stretchy due to the lining. I am not huge but not thin either and it was a little bit restrictive due to the lining not being stretchy.

This is a cute lightweight jacket perfect for slightly cool days. The fabric is NOT sweater fabric, so not sure why that is the title. It is a t-shirt type of knit fabric; not sure how else to describe it. It does look a bit like a chef's jacket if its buttoned all the way up. Unbuttoned, it has a bit of a swing and looks cute with jeans. Love the bell sleeves!
