Backroad Button-Back Sweater

Backroad Button-Back Sweater is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great button detail, but order up a size! Because other reviewers said it ran short/small, I ordered up a size (medium) even though I am usually a small. I'm 5'9"/32C/125# for reference. The medium is just the right length for me. Love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute bought this piece on sale in XS, sleeves were little tight but overall fit was good. I really liked the buttons on back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So soft, stretches out in elbows I love the softness and button back style of this sweater! I wish the neck was a tiny bit more scooped but the fit is great overall. Slightly loose, but still put together enough to wear on a night out. My only complaint is that the elbows tend to get a bit stretched out throughout the day. I am 5'6", 120 lbs, and ordered an XS.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from returned this I usually love Madewell sweaters, but this one fit really odd for me. It was tight and short and had a weird hem. I ordered my usual size of XS. I was also hoping the buttons would be the tan color shown, but on the grey they are grey buttons-- I would have liked them to stand out a little more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful sweater, snags easily I love this sweater, the color and weight are perfect. I purchased the red and it is a dark, deep red. Use caution when wearing as it snags easily.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sizing is off I have two colors of this sweater from last season that fit me perfectly. I'm tall, with broad shoulders and a bigger chest, so sweaters tend to be tricky for length and overall fit. The Medium in this sweater from last season fits perfectly, but the Medium of this season's sweater is much too short and wide. So disappointed. I may try returning in a store to see if they have a Large to try...was really hoping for a red version of this sweater I love so much from last year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweater weather Perfect to dress up or down for class or hanging out with friends. Big enough to still be cozy and look nice to wear out. Love.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fits perfectly, poor quality I'm petite and was so excited to find this sweater fit me perfectly. It's nice to have an alternative to all the oversized sweaters (which I already find in thrift stores for much less money). My only complaint is it seems to be pretty low quality and won't last beyond this season. It started to pill after only two days of wear. :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awkward fit I bought a size small in grey and the length was short and the width was too wide. Makes the sweater not look comfy
