Rated 2 out of 5 by shopperatBB Not very classic classic piece...
I was looking for a classic sweater like this, and was so glad to find these at my favorite shop! However, unfortunately when I tried them on, I was very disappointed for the following reasons:
- I like sophisticated thin fabrics, but this one is way too thin, you can almost see through the sweater, which is not at all classic...we are at Brooks Brothers, please! BB should keep their quality standards high, not just their prices...
- This sweater is VERY short! I know it might be "fashionable" for some, but it shouldn't be the case with a Brooks Brothers sweater, especially this one, which is supposed to be classic. Again a sign of cheaper choices...
- The overall fit is poor (the aforementioned shortness of sweater makes it very difficult to find the right size: the size that fits my bust barely reaches my belt line...)
- I do like the size of the front opening (covers nicely but still very feminine and CLASSIC! Please don't make it any deeper like this!)
I really wanted to like these sweaters, but had to return all of them. I do hope Brooks Brothers is going to make these again but in a better quality and appearance!

I finally bought this sweater this time ! Its true, fabric might seem a little too shear. At the same time , its not as see-through as some of the blouses. I wish it was about 2 inches longer, so I could dress it with jeans or pants. I dress it with skirts only because of shorter length, but even so this sweater is so beautiful as is and looks elegant and expensive either with more casual or conservative styles. The shawl-style opening depth is appropriate for any age and situation, one of the reasons I am enjoying wearing it so much. You don't need "loud" accessories with it, it speaks for itself. Very soft to the skin !

This sweater is rich and light, wears wonderfully. I would like BB to offer it in more vibrant colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by msLaura Don't go to another store and buy a copy of this!
I have seen this same sweater style in at least one other store and bought it. When I saw this sweater in person at Brooks Brothers, I knew I had made a mistake by trying to skimp a little money and be able to machine wash. Don't skimp!! This sweater is thin and silky and beautiful and worth the extra money and care. I hope it comes back in burgundy and navy. Needless to say the other sweater is going back and I will be enjoying this luxurious sweater. I am shocked that there are not several reviews on this sweater singing its praises.
