J Crew: Cotton Cable Sweater

I’m a little on the fence with the Cotton Cable Sweater. I like it and read the review before I purchased it. My store sold out of it pretty quickly so it seems popular. I don’t have a true white sweater so I though this would be a good choice.

I think what might be bothering me is the cable stitching on the outer sides of the sweater. To me, it seems to make me larger than I am. The size is definitely correct. The Medium fit well, TTS. If you want a slouchy look then go up one size. This is a little tight in the arms for me but that’s just me, as always. The sleeves aren’t too long as I would probably roll the cuff anyway.

Overall, I do like the sweater and will be keeping it. The Navy may have been a comfortable choice for me since it is a darker color but I have plenty of Navy in my closet. The White will make me think of ways to style it.

Follow me on…

    I gave up cable along time ago. The girls only like nice and smooth…otherwise I look like a linebacker. I am awaiting the return of J Crew featherweight cardigan in navy since I shrunk the piss out of mine two months ago.

      Blue Booby – YES!!! The no-shoulder-seam look doesn't work for me, especially in cable knits. That didn't stop me from buying two other cable knits though. One day I'll learn my lesson. I feel your pain about the laundry shrinking. I do it all the time!
