Women's Long Sleeve Matte Jersey Open Cardigan
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.

Wanted to like this
I loved how this looked in the catalog, and the material felt great, but it just didn't look right. Also, I purchased the shell pieces to layer underneath, and they were longer than the cardigan so it just didn't look right together. I really wanted to be able to keep this but unfortunately am returning.

Loved the design, hated the fabric!
First, kudos to my local Sears for having more LE products in the store. I saw this in a catalog and couldn't wait to try it, and it was nice to have it in stock in a store vs. having to order online and wait for it. As far as positives are concerned, the cobalt blue is a beautiful color, and the black and grey are essential pieces for a business wardrobe.
I really wanted to love it, but the polyester fabric was a disaster! I tried it on in the store over a tank top, and I found the fabric so coarse against my skin, I couldn't wait to take it off. While I didn't wear it for long, I didn't get the sense that it would breathe well, limiting its use to cooler seasons. I'm sure the rationale for the fabric was to make it very wrinkle-free, however with all the cotton and modal options in the LE family, this seems like a lazy way out.
For fit, I found the length and wrap of the open cardigan to be true to size. The arms are probably a little tighter fit than I would expect, and some may have trouble with this limitation.
PLEASE reconsider a redesign of this item in a softer, pima or modal fabric. I will gladly trade off using a garment steamer in exchange for a fabric that is soft and multi-seasonal.

So Glad I Found This
Many years ago I purchased a black pant set similar to this from Talbots. I was looking for another one after losing some weight. This is a very nice go to set. The material is easy to care for it fits well and does not wrinkle. You have to work very hard to get this to wrinkle. I think it is very flattering when paired with the tank and pants or skirt. Add some nice jewelry or a scarf and you have a good go to outfit for when you need it. The matching tank looks good too. I don't love the polyester but it is comfortable and it does a few things, adds weight to the fabric so it sits well on my figure, doesn't wrinkle and doesn't pick up on things like a lot of lint of dog hair. Very pleased.

I love the shape and fit of this cardigan, but wonder why Lands End chose to construct it in slippery, non-breathable polyester when they could have used cotton or modal or even a blend! This is like 70s leisure suit polyester (minus the loud prints). I just don't think I will be comfortable in it. I gave it two stars because the shape and fit are perfect, but the fabric gets zero stars!
