Pretty good

I usually buy Lands' End cashmere. Out of the box, this sweater is not as soft as the ones I get from LE. But the color and shaping are far superior. The shaping of this cardigan, even in a large size, is very flattering and the sleeves are a nice length. I usually have trouble with pilling, so I will see how this wears over the longer run, and how it washes. I put all my cashmere into the washer's delicate cycle, they either sink or swim.

Considering the significant cost, I'm disappointed in the slight itchyness. I never experienced this with other cashmeres, and I recently bought some from Costco that's much thicker and softer. But again, the fit on these JoE are indeed superior, and I like the limited color selection. I bought the eau de nil and it's lovely, if slightly darker than shown on my monitor. I like the buttons, the ribbon lining on the button placket, and the shaping and length of sleeves and overall length. I probably won't buy another at this price point.
