Women's Zip-front Drifter Cardigan
a fairly nice sweater
I agree with those who said this cardigan is not very thick--- I have a Drifter cardigan with butttons from '05 that is very thick--the yarn has more loft than this and it was knit on bigger needles.
I am not able to try this in cold weather yet, but I would note that although it is knit with thinner yarn, the needles were smaller so it is more dense than the above described vintage sweater.
Compared with what I have seen in department stores, this is a nice 100% cotton sweater and a good value for the amount I paid ( which was 25% off). It will be a handy layering piece for the fall and I look forward to wearing it.

Not Worth The Price
I agree with some of the other reviewers -- this is definitely not the same cardigan LE has been selling for the past 2 years. I recently ordered 2 in different colors from those I purchased last year, and I was very disappointed in the quality (very thin). Definitely not worth the $50 price tag, and not the workmanship I have come to expect from Land's End. I promptly returned them.

on the fence with this sweater
the sweater is thinner that i thought it would be and a little looser as well . like the neck and zipper.
am keeping because it is a good value but fabric could be more substantial.

Perfect for breezy days at the park
I live in this sweater during early spring, here, in Seattle. I love the way it keeps the breeze off my neck. Not too warm as it's cotton not wool but it is a warm cushy cotton, not terribly thin. 45-50-60 degrees F depending on what you wear underneath. I lost it somewhere and am buying it again ...because it's my favorite thing to wear at this time of year. Being large busted I like the zipper better than buttons, which can gap.

The collar won't stay down, and it's too high (fits like a turtleneck). Not comfortable.
Also it sits too high on hip, not flattering. Wore it twice, and now it's in the garage sale bag.

reccomended with reservations.
This sweater is not a winter weight sweater. More appropriate for fall or spring. Disappointing. It seems to be a cheaper product than what you used to offer. Wish you would bring back the "good stuff" and call it that. Would be willing to pay a little more for the quality product.

Returned this product as It was sized too small. Purchased and love the same product in yellow and it fit perfectly
I returned the product as it was too small. Ordered XL. Actually, the 3 sweaters I ordered are from your Drifter collection which I have always loved. Only the yellow zip front sweater was the correct fit. All three were different sizes but marked XL.

I thought would be like my last years cotton jacket, it isn't
Last years jacket had a nice trim collar that would stand up and the
zipper would not hit the chin...this one is big and too loose and the
zipper is too big...that bottom is too loose and a huge trim..where
the other was nice and trim

Love this Sweater!!!
I have been looking for a sweater like this one for years! So happy I found it. Fits true to size. Not too long, just long enough. Has give in it like a good cotton sweater should, but always goes back, like a great cotton sweater should. I was so happy with the first one, that I went back and got 3 more. Had them monogramed too. I'm really enjoying wearing them.
