Thin and clingy

Thin and clingy. Length is good, cut is okay. Thin fabric looks cheap, wrinkles and doesn't drape particularly well. Overall it's okay for spring but I wouldn't buy it again.

Notreal boyfriend sweater

This is not a boyfriend sweater. It is a women's sweater, light weight, clinging, and no pockets. Boyfriend sweaters are just like men's, only in women's sizes. I've returned it.

pink sweater returned

I like this sweater a lot, it's the right size and long enough for leggings. It fits well but I had to return it because the coloring of the fabric is blotchy. There were areas near the bottom right side of the sweater where the pink fabric dye was darker than the rest of the sweater. I returned the sweater for poor quality.

Great Sweater

I bought one of these in lavender a few years ago, and just love it, so I grabbed another one in the dark green recently. I'm not noticing the flaring/rolling problem others have described, but the new one is a little shorter than the older one. Not a huge deal, but I really, really liked the long (but not too long) style of the older version. Other than that, the color is great, and it fits well!

A Sweater to Love

I loved the first sweater I purchased in pink so much, I ordered a second in banana cream. They are perfect! With matching pants, they work as a suit. I will probably order more colors as they are such quality sweaters.

Perfect Sweater

I ordered the pink sweater to wear with a pair of Chadwick's pink brocade ankle pants I had purchased a few months ago and did not know what to wear with them. With a white shirt, the outfit was perfect. I wore it to a party and received many compliments. I already have another one on the way in the banana cream color. Perfect cardigan. Thanks!

Boyfriend Cardigan Sweater

I absolutely love this sweater. Wonderfully soft, easy fit, like the extra length. And, I am so happy that finally a navy cardigan has returned, as I looked for one for over a year. Great purchase, will no doubt reorder in other colors.

Runs small/short

I love boyfriend cardigans and Chadwicks carries so many colors that I thought I'd try a couple. I am 5'2' and 110 lbs but ordered the regular small instead of a petite as the sleeves on petites are often too short. Imagine my surprise when I discovered the regular sleeves were also too short and the sweater only hit a couple inches below my waist. I was hoping for it to be longer. Shrunk even more when washed. I loved the colors of the sweaters, however, and the soft material. Gonna try ordering a tall this time to see if it will give me the fit I want.

Ditto on the inconsistent sizing

I purchased this cardigan in red XL last year and love it so much that I decided to get another. I ordered the same size, but in bright pink for the summer. The XL bright pink is so small (more like M) and while I could live with the size of the body of the cardie, the sleeves make my arms look like sausages. The fabric seems to be the same as my red one, but the size just isn't. In reading the reviews, I'm thinking that the bright pink will just need to go back because I don't feel I am assured that I can get the same product that I fell in love with. So sad!

Sizing is a Bit inconsistent

I am 5'4" 135lbs. I ordered 4 colors in Talls based on the reviews with the exception of the Black, tall was not available so I ordered Medium. The difference in length between the Med and the Med.Tall was about 1", with the exception of the Heather Grey- it was huge! And the Red was on the small side-making me afraid to wash for fear of shrinking. Black(M) was true to size along with Loganberry(MT) and Spring Green (MT). Red and Heather Grey are going back for exchange.

Not So Good Anymore

The quality of these sweaters has gone downhill. The first two of these I bought some years ago were nice, but not the recent two I bought. For these recently purchased sweaters, the fabric is flimsier than before, and these recent ones pucker and roll up at the bottom. Unfortunately I've always had really bad return experiences with Chadwicks, so it wasn't worth it to return these.

Disappointed in the sweater

I love sweaters and was so looking forward to this one that I bought two. Unfortunately, they don't fit in any way that matches the photo. The top area near the buttons is puckered and the bottom looks like it has been stretched out and doesn't hang right. I feel like the sweaters look as if they are several years old and stretched out. Both of these sweaters are now at the list of items I only wear when I don't care what I look like but need to keep warm.

Not like the old ones

I have a red cardigan just like this from Chadwicks about 10 years ago and still love it. I was so happy to see they returned and ordered one black and one brown (brown cardis are so hard to find). Unfortunately, although they looked the same in the catalog as my old red one, when they arrived I realized it was too good to be true. They fit sort of the same, except for the annoying flared bottom, but the more important and annoying feature is the material which is completely different - thick and 100% cotton, which is disasterous in the dryer. I think the old sweaters were acrylic. Retailers need to sometimes just stick with the classics. Nice color selection though, so that deserves an extra star.

Shorter than expected

I purchased this peppermint cardigan in medium. I love the color but I'm disappointed with the length. I'm 5'2" and ordered the medium believing it would be long enough to cover my hips and backside but it barely goes to the my hips. I am worried about the result after washing. The catalog model wore it perfectly. Mine not so much.

I like the sweater overall but after you wash it the bottom starts to rise up and become uneven. I will probably buy more though, I like the material and the colors.

Fabulous Sweater for Talls

I am always looking for sweaters that are long enough in the sleeves- the tall sizes are perfect! I ordered a bunch and now that the fall colors are out, I'm ordering more. Keep them in stock, please!

Love this Cardigan

Have never been so happy with a cardigan, love the way it fits, the slight flair at the bottom is different, flattering. I have 3 and I am ordering another 3 in different colors. Wash well, and they don't shrink

nice, but

Love the sweater, but I ordered in a Medium TALL and was a bit disappointed in the length of the sleeves. I am 5'10" and I would of like them a bit longer (even an inch or so longer would be better). They did not appear any longer then the average length sweaters that I have order from Chadwicks previously.

Tall Small is the size of a tent

I am 5' 9" and a 6 - 8 dress size. I was SO happy to see that this sweater came in tall sizes as I hate sleeves that don't reach my wrists. I ordered a tall small and it was ENORMOUS! I have no idea why they called it a "small." I didn't order a regular small, so I have no idea what the difference is, but I'm fed up with "tall" sizes being treated just like longer "plus" sizes!

Amazing and in TALL SIZES now!

THANK YOU!
I wanted to love this sweater but the sleeves have never been long enough, until now. I just bought SIX sweaters in tall and they are perfect. Thank you so much!
Now, can you consider getting the stretch poplin button front shirts in tall sizes, too? Please?

It's NOT Rich Red

If you want a truly RED sweater, this isn't it. It's more a deep berry and I'm disappointed. And sorry I didn't return it right away. For the money it could be a little nicer.

Colors Not True

I really liked the sweater. Nice fit and weight, but the Blue Jay and Very Berry were much darker than the pictures. I would like to order more, but am concerned that the colors won't be what it looks like online.

Love this cardigan

I bought this in the yellow and I love the color and the fit. I like that it is somewhat fitted and doesn't just hang boxy. The fit is true to size. I would like to see it in white. I plan to purchase a black next.

Medium or Large?

I've been viewing these sweaters for quite some time. However I can't decide which size to order.
Medium or Large? I'm 5',7" and weigh 157.
Will someone share the over all measurements with me?

Great Sweater!

I love this sweater. It's not too heavy and perfect for layering. I've dressed it up with a long skirt and I've dressed it down with a pair of jeans. Washes well, and fits great. I usually wear it unbuttoned with a light shirt underneath. I really like the way it fits. If you're looking for a sweater like this I highly recommend it. I think you'll be pleased.

Very neat looking cardigan/true to size

I own this in "Laguna Turquoise" which isn't offered in the present color selection. It's lovely. The fabric is nice and tightly knit and I haven't noticed any pilling or anything of that sort yet. I noted a review that said it runs large. I would tend to disagree. I got large because my hips are my largest part and I HATE when things are tight around them. Plus, I wanted to be comfortable when layering it over other tops/sweaters. The hips in the large fit fine, the bust is a bit roomy. That said, my "large" hips are size ten in jeans. My daughter would say I should wear an eight. So I'd say this runs fairly true to size/maybe a hair on the small side. Regardless, it's lovely and I'm considering another. Just have to decide on the color.

Boyfriend Cardigan

This is a great cardigan. Fabric is soft and not too thin. The length is just right for my 5'6" height. The fit is easy, not too tight or loose. Very flattering. It would be great if they had some in more earthy tones and some blues. The blue jay looks more like the aqua looks in the pictures. Still it looks so good I kept the sweater anyway. The black is true to the picture as well as the heather gray. Will buy more if they offer different colors.

Boy Friend sweater

I liked the sweater . The quality for the cost was great. I think having pockets would be a plus. The reason I returned it was the color. The discription : Burnt Orange made me think a darker orange. No ,we are talking Bright Orange to bright for me. Size was true .

comfortable and pretty

This sweater drapes wonderfully. It does not cling and make you look fat. It does not itch!!! Really comfortable. I got the Lagoon and the burnt orange, very pretty colors. I don't know if they shrink as one reviewer stated, as I haven't washed them yet. I like them so much, I'm going to try velvet plum and black. Great price also.

I ordered this in the orange color and I just love the feel and fit. It's not too clingy, but not so big you feel like you're wearing too big of a sweater. Great with cotton tops or a button down shirt -- will def purchase in more colors!

Very nice sweater

Very nice sweater. Seems to run a little big though. I usually wear a small (I'm 5'7" and about 150 lb) but always order a medium as Chadwicks seems to run a little small. However, I could easily wear this sweater in a small. I ordered the desert rose and the chocolate brown. The desert rose seems to be a little big and I'm hoping it will shrink a bit when I wash it. If the fit were better would have definitely given it 5 stars.
