Men's Classic Cashmere Crewneck Sweater
Classy Classic Cashmere
I did not purchase this for my husband - I bought it for me!!! For many years, Lands End made this item for women in the same density of the cashmere yarn and style...then - woah! LE stopped making this wonderful sweater that i have worn for years for women...woe was me --- The lightbulb went off in my head - men's sweaters - let me see if I could get it in a similair fit to the womens..I like mine large and loose - a shirt under it sometimes - but still sort of boxy on my body - it is very fun that way! It looks great with skinny jeans! So - this year I purchased it for me (and it still has the all important dust bag!) in the mossy green, heathery blue, vicuna brown, burgundy, to add to my older collection of heathery beige, white, black red and forest green...Literally, I take care of them - always dry clean them, keep them in their appointed dust bags and wear them a great deal! I have been wearing the crew cashmere for about twenty years...what can I say? I love a classic, classy cashmere - and LE should reinstate it for ladies, too..I was lucky that I found a similiar fit - but some gals are petite and need an xs and that will not happen in a men's small...so LE - do your thing and recreate this for women. I'm just glas I used my head in seeking this treasured sweater!

I buy this again and again!
My husband is 6'4" and slim. It fits him very well. The sleeves are long enough, the navy color is his favourite and the crew neck compulsory. He loves them and lives in them. I try to buy him a new one every year.

It is a wonderful sweater which lived up to my expectations
I wanted it to wear on formal and informal occasions when I did not want to wear a jacket and tie. It fits very well and looks terrific.

I really love this sweater!! I bought this in the pewter heather in xl so it would be over-sized and longer on me, thanks to the one female review. I own quite a few LE cashmere sweaters and this is by far the softest. I wear it all the time. It has been so miserably cold this winter and w/a LE silk tank and LE cashmere turtleneck underneath it, I have never been cozier. Add a pair of leggings and some leg warmers and wow, what a cute outfit!!!! It was rather pricey, but worth every penny. It has not pilled at all like a few of your other cashmere sweaters I have bought in previous years. I even wash it inside out on a cold, gentle cycle and then dry it on low heat,even though that is definitely NOT recommended. It has come out every time with flying colors! No shrinkage or change of shape. I think I want a few more of these! I just wish you had the crew neck in red......LOVE this sweater!!!!

Neck too wide
I got three of these and am disappointed only because the neck opening is too wide right out of the box, giving it a stretched out look. The quality is OK, but this is a design flaw and I wish I hadn't bought them.

Just purchased (and have now returned) this sweater. I received a LE Cashmere crew neck not that long ago as a gift. I find that I wear it quite often and decided to purchase one in another color. Upon unpacking it, it felt quite a bit lighter than my present one. I tried it on, and the fit was fine; just about the same as my old one. But the lighter weight gave it a different feel - I pulled out our kitchen scale - my old sweater weighed in at 493 grams (17.5 oz) versus the new one at 356 grams (12.5 oz) - Fully 30% lighter = less sweater. I'm disappointed and have now returned the newly ordered one.

I have purchased many LE's cashmere sweaters over the years. Recently, the quality has declined. I almost did not order one this year, but based on reviews of improved quality, I decided to purchase one for my son. Although the weight is not as heavy as in years past, the quality of the sweater was good.

Not what it used to be
I have bought many Lands' End cashmere sweaters over the years. I still have my first one. Unfortunately, the quality of the sweaters has declined markedly over time. The one that I bought in November 2013 pilled badly on the sleeves and I had to return it. Lands' End - please get back to the quality that you were famous for.

Although this is a nice cashmere crew, it is not the quality L.E. had 7 - 8 yrs ago. Not only was the construction, knit and yarn of better quality, the colors were significantly better. L. E. can you please go back to those specifications? They sure were memorable sweaters!

Very happy with this purchase! Got men's xl tall to be oversized and comfy and it is. Nice weight for wearing indoors- not too hot. Have worn it quite a bit over the last couple of months and there is no pilling or damage. Hand wash and dry flat and it comes out beautifully. Am likely to buy more!
