It's a classic V-neck sweater (the V-décolleté looks narrower and deeper on me than it does in the picture – and I actually prefer the narrow look); it pairs very well with a skirt or pants, and looks great complemented by a scarf or a necklace; it can be dressed up or down. The fabric is of a stand... Read More

    Beautiful sweater that fits very well but the actual color doesn't come close to the website picture. The sweater is definitely blue with a heathery undertone. I got it today and haven't yet decided whether I'm going to send it back because it is high quality.

    I bought these V-neck sweaters for the first time in autumn of 2012. I got them in navy blue and black. Since then they became my most favourite sweaters of all (and I have “a few” to choose from). I follow strictly the provided along by JofE washing instructions and these sweaters only got better with time and with each wash: the yarn blooms (i.e. it opened up and became fluffier and softer), retains its colour and the sweaters have not lost their shape. They pair very well with silk scarves, or a necklace – they are very versatile: dress them up, dress them down.
    But please note: these sweaters are made of thin yarn, they are on a thin side and they are not for -20F winters; they are great for spring and autumn, or for summer over-air-conditioned “chilly Willies” like me.
    When these sweaters in new colors got posted this spring, I just couldn’t object to getting a few. Prior to receiving them, I was already planning which sweater would go with which scarf, and what not. And then there was the: “WOOPS.” The colours turned out to be quite different than they seemed to be; harebell and eau de Nil in particular. The actual colours are much softer, more pastel, washed off, and there is a hint of heather(ing) to them. They are still very nice (but an orange scarf I so much wanted to wear with the harebell blue sweater won’t do it now). There was also a very nice surprise: the sand color looks to me superb; so much so, that I ordered a JofE cardigan in that colour too. I took a photo hoping to show the actual colours more accurately... then there is always a matter of our monitors being properly calibrated for colour.
    Regarding the size, I find them to be accurate; there is only a minute difference between XS and S, and that seems to be only in the tapering of a waistline (I’m 33”-25”-35” in chest-waist-hips and I favour XS). I don’t know how the larger sizes compare but these sweaters, being made in Europe, might have likely been made to fit a traditional sizing (and I trust that other shoppers will post their review offering help on that).
    It truly is my most favourite sweater of all and I highly recommend it.

    This sweater is exquisitely soft, well finished and light weight. I live in a mild climate (Northern California) and don't need or want a heavier sweater, especially in the office. I proceeded to order this sweater in navy and red (a beautiful deep ruby color) after I purchased the "natural" color. I am quite pleased with the quality of this garment and the sale price was attractive as well - highly recommend this to anyone looking for a lightweight, tailored sweater.
