Glenhill Sweater-Coat

Glenhill Sweater-Coat is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impulse buy gone great After trying this on I could immediately tell how well made it is and how useful it will be. Heavy, warm, oversized - perf for my growing preggy belly. I was happy to find that the main component is acrylic since pure wool makes me itch. When layered with a sweater and scarf, this is toasty enough for those mild SF nights (note: I get easily cold). When it’s a chilly AM, I throw this on and lounge with my dog who sheds - the colors make any stray fur unnoticeable ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and comfy I just got this today and I'm already in love with it. It's soft and warm without being too scratchy as it looked like it might be. The sweater has a slouchy look without being too baggy, as cardigans can often be. I was worried that because of the slouchiness, the sleeves would be too big, but they're just fine as well. Perhaps a little more baggy in the armpit area than I'd choose, but comfortable and cute just the same. The length is perfect and goes great with jeans or leggings. Definitely a staple piece I can see myself wearing for the next few years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, but a Bit Large I should have sized down to an XXS, because the XS is too oversized. But I needed something to wear immediately at my freezing workplace, so I ended up not exchanging. It still looks great, but to fit like on the model, the XXS would have been better. That said, I don’t regret the purchase at all. The sweater is soft and doesn’t irritate my neck. The color is great and goes with a lot of outfits. It’s more than roomy enough to wear over another sweater. Also, it’s very warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cozy and not itchy! Love the substantial feel of this sweater-it's definitely more like a coat but the fabric is soft, not itchy. I normally wear a large and got a medium which is still oversized but I wanted it that way for a slouchy look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cozy sweater coat that doesn't swallow me I usually strike out with the sweater coat options because of my short height and wide shoulders, I end up looking geometric in most stuff. I loved this sweater coat for 2 reasons: 1. It isn't overwhelming on my frame but still looks slouchy and is toasty warm. 2. It has a double button closure so I can keep it closed when wearing as a coat. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for cooler days in GA Received this beautiful sweater within a few days of ordering. It fit perfectly! Plenty of room to wear heavier clothes under it if needed. Love that it has an inside button to secure it as well as the outer one. I am 5’3 and 118 and purchased the small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for cold weather Great sweater/jacket when it gets cold. Thick knit with a beautiful light sparkle in the deep charcoal color - very subtle. I would not upsize it. I think some would want to go down 1 size if they are small framed. Looks best with narrow pants and leggings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT cardigan-but runs very large! I usually wear an 8-10 and a small or medium in madewell tops. When I went to buy this sweater there was only XS and S left, so i decided to take my chances on the xs after talking to customer service and getting measurements, figuring I could stretch it out a little if it was too tight. the XS actually fit perfectly-I was so surprised! The sleeves are still baggy enough to fit comfortably over a shirt, and it fits in the shoulders and hips. The weight and marl of the sweater are perfect. Glad I took a chance on this; I can tell I'll wear it for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Borrowed from the Boys Vibe I absolutely love this sweater-coat and have been getting so much use out of it since I bought it 3 weeks ago. I bought it while visiting San Francisco and it was the perfect weight for that climate. Here in freezing Brooklyn, I've also been wearing it under my puffy coat and even around the office (gotta love those drafty offices in the winter). As far as size goes... I would say it's "true to size" given that it is intentionally cut larger/relaxed. This is not a fitted cardigan. If you want something fitted, order a size down. If you want an easy, cool borrowed-from-the-boys vibe, order your typical Madewell size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality, definitely oversized I like my tops and sweaters to be oversized, so while I'm normally a small, I ordered this in a medium. Medium was definitely too big--it became very bell-shaped at the hem. Exchanged for a small and it has just the right amount of looseness--perfect for layering with my oversized shirts! For reference I am 5'6" and 120 lbs.
