Okay…so here it is. The “boyfriend” knit cardigan that is actually the men’s chunky knit cardigan re-branded (sort of) for women. I’m still rather disappointed that Everlane wasn’t more up-front about what they did with this cardigan (telling us it was the men’s version on the site), but I do understand WHY they decided to offer it on the women’s side for those of us who didn’t like the fit of the women’s version.
Overall, I’m pleased with it, and write this down because I don’t say this often (ever), but it might be just a bit TOO warm. Whoa. Yes, it’s VERY heavy (weight-wise, not just the fabric texture), soft, comfortable, and warm. I wore it yesterday and was generally comfortable in it, but might have been a tad warm inside. Not enough that I wouldn’t wear it. But just FYI.
I REALLY like the fit of it, but it could be slouchier honestly. I was expecting it to be bigger and longer on me, and it’s really not. I still like it, but it doesn’t fit like I was expecting it to. I had ordered the women’s medium and thought it was too small, especially around my hips, which isn’t the case with the men’s version. And the sleeves are long, but not too long, and they’re sort of tapered/ribbed at the bottom so they’re easy to push up, and they STAY there, which I appreciate.
So. I do really like the cardigan, and recommend it when it comes back in stock, but if you want something that’s REALLY slouchy/oversized, then I would recommend sizing up, even in the men’s version. This is my experience, though, with my hips, so if you have more of a straight body type, your regular size in the men’s might be okay…
Who else ordered this? What do you think?
