Verified Buyer Reviewed by Ms Mike of Texas from Texas on Thursday, October 15, 2015Very nice sweater. Good for transition from fall to winter. Would have rated 5 star if it had pockets. The belt is a nice contrast but could be substituted to match any outfit. Impressive quality for anything by Joan Vass. Sizing is true.
Reviewed by Barbara from Upstate New York on Thursday, August 27, 2015This sweater looks way better on than in the picture. It is slimming, and the tie is a suede cloth in a deep brown. I took a chance and ordered it, and I am really happy with how great it looks. I ordered a size up. I wear an 10-12 and ordered Large. It is just right.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Ifmypeople from MT on Sunday, August 16, 2015Nice design and for the sale price, if you're a fan of vests, it's a no brainer purchase. In addition I may dye it, totally doable with the right dye.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Flint Springs from Kentucky on Monday, March 23, 2015I passed this by a long time because it looked like a spa wrap aspiring to be a karate gi. I removed the tie and let the wrap hang naturally; it's a wonderful texture and cotton-color in hand. The weave is airy and the garment is spongy, not thin. The short sleeves will limit its usefulness for me, so minus a star, but it is really pretty, not like a bathrobe, if you nix the belt. I'm glad I looked beyond the photo. The tie isn't bad - I'll use it for something else though.
Reviewed by NOVArunner from Virginia on Tuesday, January 14, 2014This is a very soft, warm, well-made sweater that fits just as it looks in the photo. I don't care for the belt, so I use one I already had in my closet.
Reviewed by JoanneK from Barrington,IL on Thursday, December 27, 2012This has this "hand knitted by Granny" look which wouldn't be bad by itself if the yarn was a touch softer.
For me it is too stiff and itchy. Even through the long sleeved shirt. Also leaves little hairs on that/black/ shirt. Franly can't imagine wearing it with anything else than what's pictured beacause the vest by itself is overwhelming.
It lacks pockets and the polyester soft belt just rolls into rope unless you let it hang loose.
But then your waist look twice as big over that thick vest.
Liked it on the picture but I wanted something uselful - which for me this isn't.
