Women's Long Sleeve Matte Jersey Open Cardigan
NOT wrinkly or cheap! I am thrilled with it
This is quite a heavy, smooth, not quite slippery knit with a very strong drape. Wrinkles fall right off on the hanger- can't imagine why someone described it as wrinkly. maybe wrinkles in transit (I got mine at Sears). If I have left it lying rumpled on the chair overnight it does wrinkle, but a few hours on the hanger and it is completely smooth. It has to be dried flat- kind of a minus for me, but worth it. I can't understand people complaining about the fabric. It is mostly rayon with some poly and that is what it looks and feels like! Has the wonderful drape of rayon but heavier than many rayon items, and the poly means it can be washed without shrinking. Maybe some Lands End customers are all about the cotton- but I like the variety of dressier fabrics they now have, and many of them wash and wear much better than much cotton. This piece is not at all structured, and the hang may feel a little heavy to some- maybe that explains some of the negative reviews, I don't know. I have been wearing it a few months and the only downside is that it is getting teeny little pills in just a few places. But, I do wear it a lot. It is a great comfortable office piece, which, because of the great fabric does not look cheap or casual, but is not constricting like a suit jacket. I am working as a secretary these days in a place that does not allow office casual, but I don't always need to go the full suit / jacket thing like I did in other kinds of positions. This fills the bill.

I love this - wish it came in more colors and I would buy them all!

Runs pretty big
Had I not worn this, I would probably return it, I loved the royal blue color, but the 10-12 (what I normally wear) is really bulky and long. It might just be the material.

The cut of this cardigan is nice, but I didn't like the fabric - it didn't drap very nicely and it looked cheap. I'm returning it as I wouldn't wear it.

Too Wrinkly for Me
I always forget... Rayon wRinkles. This arrived very wrinkly and would have taken some serious steaming or ironing to get it back to shape. Also I did not like the styling and how it draped (I wear a large). But either way the wrinkles were a deal breaker for me.

Love this cardigan!
I've been wanting a dressy cardigan with a matching tank for quite some time. Thank you Lands End! What I love about it is that it is NOT clingy and fits very well. A sweater fabric or a cotton modal fabric would not be desirable at all. A little generous in the fit, but it works well for me. I'm tall with a slim build and prefer that my clothes do not cling to me when I reach up, bend over, etc. The cardigan and the shell work well, but the skirt runs too large for me (I wear a medium and the small is too small). The pants I had to return because they were unbelievably LONG (I'm 5'8")! I'll just wear the tops with other pants.

I got out to dinner quite a bit, I purchased this cardigan along with the slacks & tops...it's a quick pick in the closet & I'm off & so easy & nice!!
I am 5' tall & have a large top, but small waist & legs. I am always hemming and remaking what I buy. But, this time I purchased the petite size in the cardigan, slacks, and tops and they fit absolutely perfect. All I have to do is put it on. I didn't have to hem a thing. The material is a bit heavier, but I like it!... Because of this, the outfit stays unwrinkled and neat looking while wearing - whether it is one hour or five hours, and I'm happy with this. I wear the coordinating matte jersey tops, slacks, & cardigan and I couldn't be happier...this outfit has already paid for itself. This was a great purchase and I will purchase again in a different color, if that's possible.

I bought one color and loved it so much, I then bought the other color. The fabric is so comfortable. I will get a lot of use out of these.

Color and fit are excellent.
However, the fabric has an unpleasant, very synthetic feel. I therefore would not buy this item again.
