Rated 1 out of 5 by scottishterrier Things ain't what they used to be
A couple of weeks ago I caught the tail end of a radio programme about falling sales of clothing at M&S. The complaint seems to have been that clothing was not stylish . I was too late to add my twopence worth but if I had been able to get through I would have said the quality is not as good as it used to be. I am a middle of the road sort of person and I was looking for something warm . The sweater seemed to fit the bill . However after 2 days wear a seam split under an arm. I got a refund without quibble . However I had also previously had to return a merino/silk crew neck sweater because the neckband was becoming detached from the body of the sweater.

One of M & S' successes is the quality and durability of its cashmere sweaters and cardigans for both men and women. It is reasonably priced and compares favourably with similar products from other independent retailers. It launders well - even machine washable. Overall I have been very pleased with the cashmere garments I have purchased.
It is disappointing that after years and years of poor sales M & S continues to fail in women's clothing. There is a common need for good quality natural fabrics - pure cotton, wool - and not viscose, elasticine, polyester, etc. in flattering designs for all ages.

This is not the first M&S cashmere I have, I think that the quality dipped a few years ago, however this is now excellent, good fit and better,soft wool. The colour is good and I am confident that it will wash well.
My wife says that the men's cashmere is superior to the ladies', much better quality and a better colour range

I had bought 5 of these jumpers over the last 3 years, they wash well at 30 on a wool wash. Just wish they were a little thicker even if the price went up a small amount.

Rated 4 out of 5 by qualitybuyer Bought as a gift, looks short
I bought this for a birthday gift so don't know yet how it fits but it does look short.
I bought a similar sweater for my husband at Christmas and it was much too short (he is 6' ) so I hope this isn't the same.
Please stop skimping M&S, near the £90 mark is not cheap so we expect the quality to go with it.
