Too bad I wanted to wear more than a few times! -
By: CAMS from Northeast OH
I decided to write this review because I so wish Orivis would ensure their fabric quality matched their reputation and prices. My Mother bought this sweater for me as a gift knowing that I admired it in the store. It looked great when new and for about one or two wearings. The problem is that it pills more than any other piece of clothing I've owned. After I wore it a few times, it now just sits in our cedar chest. To be fair, the sweater holds its shape very well, it is well made, and is a good tailored fit. It is a very warm sweater. But it looks like I wore it for years instead of a couple of times. I've tried to "depill" it, but within a few hours, it looks terrible again. I'm embarassed to wear it. Whoever manufactured this for Orvis apparently used an inferior fabric. This was a relatively expensive sweater and I expect far better. After several wearings, it is probably good for working in the yard or around the house if no one is coming over. I have no receipt since it was a gift and I keep hoping that my Mom doesn't ask about it! She is very generous, but would feel very bad. I wish there were a way to know when a piece of clothing was made with poor quality fabric.
Should Have read Reviews Before Purchase! -
By: Nana120 from Bastrop, TX
Loved the fit and color of this sweater and still do, however, I would not have purchased if I had read previous reviews. I, too, experienced MAJOR disappointment of the pilling under sleeves and on front. I paid way too much for this poor product and think Orvis should compensate me in some manner!!
Worst Purchase Ever -
By: 1disappointedsweaterowner from Manchester VT and Catalogue Store
Purchased not one but two of these cardigan sweaters. After wearing this sweater only a couple of times -- it developed "pills"or fuzz balls all over the underarm and chest area. Please -- Orvis may the quality of your imports match your high price point. Disappointing all around.
A Bitter Pill -
By: RAGBAG from Darein CT
After looking for ages for a zip front, gray wool sweater, I finally found the replacement for the ancient one I hated to give up. I am so unhappy with the pilling and yet hate to return it. The price was a bit high for such a big disappointment
Red Zip-front Cardigan -
By: Tiggert from TN
Usually I am very happy with the products I order from Orvis but I have just had an unhappy experience. I brought the cardigan with me on a trip with the expectation of wearing it to several events. After wearing it for one day it is covered with pills especially on the sleeves and front. It looks terrible. I paid a lot more for this sweater than I usually pay so I am doubly disappointed. I would not recommned this product.

The sweater looked great the first two timesI wore it, but developed significant pills the third time. Am planning to return it.
