Nice color and fit
I recommend this top -- it is a modern take on the classic turtleneck. Because the model pictured is very tall and long-waisted I ordered a size P but think the S would have been better. (5.3.5" 114 lb) I advise ordering your regular size.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Thigh and rear faded jeans
Excellent fit, construction and comfort. On the pair I received, the fading front and back was more prominent than pictured, so I returned. On a plus though, the fading was quite slimming!

Did I get a flawed item?
... Because my opinion on this item is quite different from the other reviewers. The shape of the item is not as pictured, it looks like a standard zip case. The leather is of poorer quality than I was expecting. I have received higher quality leather goods from Shopbop for less. Maybe I just don't get what this designer is doing. Or something went awry between the designer's vision and the manufacturer in China. Even wearing prestigious-brand goggles I did not feel this was worth keeping.

Value + Style
This sweater has a beautiful navy color and I love the cut, very modern. The knit is nubby and kind of trashed looking so any future pilling or pet hairs will suit the vibe of this sweater. I got the XS (5.3.5" 113.b, 35" bust but narrow shoulders) and the fit is flattering. The sleeves are snug in contrast to the loose body. The front points hang just right and the back is shorter so you need to take care of how you dress your backside when wearing this. The only drawback is the static-y, acrylic-dominant fiber which means this sweater won't have a long life. But due to the reasonable price I think that's OK.

Cute sweater - get your usual size
I have been sizing down in FP sweaters this year because most of them are quite oversized. And even when I take the smaller of my two sizes (I am usually an S or XS), the fit is still oversized. However with this one get your usual size. While the XS was perfect in length and sleeve/shoulder fit, it was just a bit fitted around the bust which was not as flattering as it is on the model. So, get your usual size if it is still available, unless you are small busted then sizing down might work. (5'3.5", 113 lb, 32DD). I did not have any of the fluff coming off the jacket as the other reviewer did.

Wearing it all the time
I just got this and can't stop wearing it. It brings beautiful color around your face so this is the perfect piece for when your top is in a color that's not ideal on you. For example -- I love grey (my new black) but it's just a so-so color near my face. This helps you cheat and brings some lovely color near your face. The piece looked/felt a little flimsy when I got it, kind of plastic-y but when you have it on, it doesn't look cheap and it's light so you don't get a neck-ache from wearing it.

Gorgeous Color. Size up?
I got the same size as the model and it felt just a bit snug in the bust and hips, but then again I am built curvier than the model (5'3.5" 113). The sleeves however were quite roomy and full. Overall the piece was too sporty for my taste but if I had kept the top I would have sized up. If you have a boyish figure like the model this might work better on you.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Nice color but hangs unevenly
I don't know if it's due to the heavy zipper, but when open the jacket hangs quite unevenly. When closed it looks better, but from the back the view is still uneven. As the name says, it is a chunky, cuddly sweater-coat and it delivers on this point. Quite roomy even in a size XS (5'3.5", 113). Because I did not want to worry about fussing with how this garment hangs, I returned it.

Neckline cut unevenly
I had to return this, because not only did it arrive in a crumpled mess, but the neckline was unevenly sewn. One side kind of v, the other side kind of scoop. I am amazed this passed QC at Free People or Shopbop. It is quite long and the fit is looser on me than the model, and I am not model skinny.

Flattering cut and fit
I got the size 1, I am 5'3.5" 113 lb and it fits perfectly. The ivy is a beautiful color too.
