Not like the old ones
I have a red cardigan just like this from Chadwicks about 10 years ago and still love it. I was so happy to see they returned and ordered one black and one brown (brown cardis are so hard to find). Unfortunately, although they looked the same in the catalog as my old red one, when they arrived I realized it was too good to be true. They fit sort of the same, except for the annoying flared bottom, but the more important and annoying feature is the material which is completely different - thick and 100% cotton, which is disasterous in the dryer. I think the old sweaters were acrylic. Retailers need to sometimes just stick with the classics. Nice color selection though, so that deserves an extra star.
Shorter than expected
I purchased this peppermint cardigan in medium. I love the color but I'm disappointed with the length. I'm 5'2" and ordered the medium believing it would be long enough to cover my hips and backside but it barely goes to the my hips. I am worried about the result after washing. The catalog model wore it perfectly. Mine not so much.
I like the sweater overall but after you wash it the bottom starts to rise up and become uneven. I will probably buy more though, I like the material and the colors.
Fabulous Sweater for Talls
I am always looking for sweaters that are long enough in the sleeves- the tall sizes are perfect! I ordered a bunch and now that the fall colors are out, I'm ordering more. Keep them in stock, please!
Love this Cardigan
Have never been so happy with a cardigan, love the way it fits, the slight flair at the bottom is different, flattering. I have 3 and I am ordering another 3 in different colors. Wash well, and they don't shrink
Love the sweater, but I ordered in a Medium TALL and was a bit disappointed in the length of the sleeves. I am 5'10" and I would of like them a bit longer (even an inch or so longer would be better). They did not appear any longer then the average length sweaters that I have order from Chadwicks previously.

Tall Small is the size of a tent
I am 5' 9" and a 6 - 8 dress size. I was SO happy to see that this sweater came in tall sizes as I hate sleeves that don't reach my wrists. I ordered a tall small and it was ENORMOUS! I have no idea why they called it a "small." I didn't order a regular small, so I have no idea what the difference is, but I'm fed up with "tall" sizes being treated just like longer "plus" sizes!
Amazing and in TALL SIZES now!
THANK YOU! I wanted to love this sweater but the sleeves have never been long enough, until now. I just bought SIX sweaters in tall and they are perfect. Thank you so much! Now, can you consider getting the stretch poplin button front shirts in tall sizes, too? Please?
LOVE, LOVE IT!
I bought one in black for the office and went back to get another for home. Now I'm getting one in white! Or maybe I should get two?? Length is great, fits wonderfully and washes well!
I have 2 and great for work. I am 5'7" 150 lbs and ordered large so I could wear any kind of shirt under them. Perfect fit.
I ordered this sweater in PM in Dusty Rose & Black for myself. I liked it so much I ordered a size S & a size M in grey for gifts. Just ordered 3 more in Red for all of us. Fits good opened or buttoned & very comfortable.
It's NOT Rich Red
If you want a truly RED sweater, this isn't it. It's more a deep berry and I'm disappointed. And sorry I didn't return it right away. For the money it could be a little nicer.
Best Sweater EVER!!
I currently have the plum and the emerald and ordering two more today! There is nothing I don't like about them!!
I wish it had pockets, but I do love the sweater

Colors Not True
I really liked the sweater. Nice fit and weight, but the Blue Jay and Very Berry were much darker than the pictures. I would like to order more, but am concerned that the colors won't be what it looks like online.

Love this cardigan
I bought this in the yellow and I love the color and the fit. I like that it is somewhat fitted and doesn't just hang boxy. The fit is true to size. I would like to see it in white. I plan to purchase a black next.
This is a GREAT fitting sweater
This is really a great fitting sweater. Fabric has a high quality feel, holds its shape and I am going back for more. Trust me, this sweater is a great purchase.
Medium or Large?
I've been viewing these sweaters for quite some time. However I can't decide which size to order. Medium or Large? I'm 5',7" and weigh 157. Will someone share the over all measurements with me?
I love this sweater. It's not too heavy and perfect for layering. I've dressed it up with a long skirt and I've dressed it down with a pair of jeans. Washes well, and fits great. I usually wear it unbuttoned with a light shirt underneath. I really like the way it fits. If you're looking for a sweater like this I highly recommend it. I think you'll be pleased.
Very neat looking cardigan/true to size
I own this in "Laguna Turquoise" which isn't offered in the present color selection. It's lovely. The fabric is nice and tightly knit and I haven't noticed any pilling or anything of that sort yet. I noted a review that said it runs large. I would tend to disagree. I got large because my hips are my largest part and I HATE when things are tight around them. Plus, I wanted to be comfortable when layering it over other tops/sweaters. The hips in the large fit fine, the bust is a bit roomy. That said, my "large" hips are size ten in jeans. My daughter would say I should wear an eight. So I'd say this runs fairly true to size/maybe a hair on the small side. Regardless, it's lovely and I'm considering another. Just have to decide on the color.
This is a great cardigan. Fabric is soft and not too thin. The length is just right for my 5'6" height. The fit is easy, not too tight or loose. Very flattering. It would be great if they had some in more earthy tones and some blues. The blue jay looks more like the aqua looks in the pictures. Still it looks so good I kept the sweater anyway. The black is true to the picture as well as the heather gray. Will buy more if they offer different colors.
Boy Friend sweater
I liked the sweater . The quality for the cost was great. I think having pockets would be a plus. The reason I returned it was the color. The discription : Burnt Orange made me think a darker orange. No ,we are talking Bright Orange to bright for me. Size was true .
Nice sweater but does run large.

Love this Sweater!
I love this sweater! I have 2 of them and will be ordering more. I love the fit. They are not clingy at all and work great over short sleeve tops in the office. Now to decide what the next color will be...
comfortable and pretty
This sweater drapes wonderfully. It does not cling and make you look fat. It does not itch!!! Really comfortable. I got the Lagoon and the burnt orange, very pretty colors. I don't know if they shrink as one reviewer stated, as I haven't washed them yet. I like them so much, I'm going to try velvet plum and black. Great price also.
welcome back chadwick! this is a beautiful light weight sweater,the color is very rich.
Love this Sweater
I ordered this in the orange color and I just love the feel and fit. It's not too clingy, but not so big you feel like you're wearing too big of a sweater. Great with cotton tops or a button down shirt -- will def purchase in more colors!
Very nice sweater
Very nice sweater. Seems to run a little big though. I usually wear a small (I'm 5'7" and about 150 lb) but always order a medium as Chadwicks seems to run a little small. However, I could easily wear this sweater in a small. I ordered the desert rose and the chocolate brown. The desert rose seems to be a little big and I'm hoping it will shrink a bit when I wash it. If the fit were better would have definitely given it 5 stars.
I have this sweater in several colors and am buying a couple more today. The length and weight are great and the colors beautiful. With a shell and scarf they are perfect for the office. Thank you Chadwicks for this sweater!
love love love
I love love love this sweater. I have bought three in the last year. The latest one I bought a size up and still love it. The first two were great but over time have shrunk due to multiple washings ( ive worn the heck out of them!!) The new one is a bit longer and just as comfy!! Cant go wrong with this buy. Im sure ill be buying more soon.
Love this sweater. Long enough to cover the rear end and light enough to wear over a shell or long sleeved shirt without getting too hot. Love it. Buying more today.
