Women's Long Sleeve Meridian Cable Crewneck Sweater
didn't like this sweater, I returned it
First: on me, the sweater was too boxy and too long (both in the sleeves and the body, which hit my thighs about 5 inches below the hip joint). I'm five foot seven & one-quarter inches tall so in my opinion it shouldn't have been that long. Also, kelly green is one of my favorite colors, but in this sweater the kelly green was flat, cheap, overly bright & hideous. So much so that I already didn't like it while the sweater was still in the shipping bag. Maybe the other colors look much better? But if you look better in clothing that's at least slightly fitted, you probably won't like this sweater either.

Very comfortable and fits my casual lifestyle. Not big enough to wear over collared shirt but I wouldn't anyway. Great with cords, jeans or chinos. Feels very nice to the touch. Too bad it's not patterned in the back, too. Haven't hand washed it yet but am hoping for the best. I don't like dry cleaning.

I have been needing a navy blue sweater and since it is the end of the season, have not had luck in finding one in my size. I ordered this sweater in the blue color that was available - a bright royal blue. I like the color and the seater is soft and fits well. Not baggy, not tight.

I like this sweater.
You have to watch the fit as if you're not careful it will shrink a bit but even so I like the sweater a lot. Got in in the gray color.

Too boxy with a high neck
I was looking for a nice, classic sweater, and was hoping this would work. But it's too boxy and the neck is higher than it appears on the model. I'm 5'3" 125lbs and ordered an XS, but even with my slim figure, it doesn't work. The neck was above my collarbone and I could barely fit it over my head.

Very disappointed in this sweater
I ordered this sweater in red and blue and was really looking forward to wearing them. I was very disappointed after the very first time I wore one of them. The pilling is a major problem plus they shed all over my wool pants and coat. They lost their shape after the first wearing and after the first washing.....could not believe how the sweater looked. Very poor quality.

Boxy shape and it pills!
Received the green as a gift -- loved the color, but am so disappointed with the fit and wear. I'm generally a medium, but this is short and boxy. Also, as previously mentioned in the reviews, after just a couple wears, the pilling on the sleeves is awful. Not what I would expect from Lands End.

looks cheap and frumpy
I love the way this sweater looks online, but not in person. I ordered the green and the color was pretty true to what the picture looks like. However, when I tried it on, I found the material to be cheap looking and feeling. Also, it hung all wrong. I'm big busted and round in the middle, but the fit of this was just awful. It was tight in the arms and neck, and bunched up on the tummy, while oddly not pulling down past the top of my waist. All in all, VERY disappointing. It's the only item of clothing that my husband has ever flat out said was ugly.

Pilling is problem.
This is the second time I have worn this sweater and the pilling is terrible. It really detracts from the sweater and it also stretches easily and loses its shape.

Not a quality product and short/boxy
I ordered this online...and while it has yet to arrive, I had the chance to try it on in person today because I was at Sears. What a shame, this is such a great idea..a light cabled sweater. But unfortunately, it is of poor quality..looks thin and like something I could purchase at Walmart. I will be sending this back when it arrives. Definitely not the high quality LE products usually have. The lack of cables on the back of the sweater make it look cheap, and the sweater is so thin you need to wear a layer..too bad you can't because it's cut so small!:(
