I had my eye on this vest for quite some time, so was looking forward to its arrival. However, the fabric was scratchy, stiff and wrinkled. The biggest problem though, was I could not get the buttons unbuttoned to try it on! The buttonholes were very very small to non-existent. I would have had to use it as a pullover - no thanks - disappointment for me.

I ordered this vest in navy last month. I received it with a hole in the neck ribbing in the back. I returned it and re-ordered it in navy again (for some reason the exchange process didn't work), since the style and color of the vest are exactly what I'd been looking for. What are the chances I'd get a defective replacement, right? Wrong. The next one came with a hole in the ribbing on the armhole. While I couldn't fix the last one myself, I might be able to fix this one, so I might keep it. Or not. It's not a good value for the money. It would have to be a steal to make it worth the risk of receiving a defective product.

This vest is long and boxy, but it fit great in the arms and shoulders. The fabric is not as substantial or as soft as I thought alpaca should be. When I started to put it on for the first time, I noticed a little hole at the edge of the back collar. It would get bigger if I tried wearing the vest, so unfortunately, I had to send it back.

I am tired of wearing bulky sweaters, and wanted something light, yet warm. This vest is perfect. And, it's a nice, slimming length. Of course, will need dry-cleaning, but that's expected. Love the vest!!!

I purschased this Woman's vest in Brown to complement my fall/winter wardrobe. The quality is ok but the lapel of the button is opened on the right not on left for a woman's top. At $79.95, I expected this product to be manufacturer properly for a woman. I'm unable to send it back b/c I can't find a brown Woman's sweater vest anywhere. I would not recommend b/c the quality control standards are not good.
