I have a white v-neck from JC in XS that fits like a cardboard box. I hot-soaked it several times and ran it through a hot dryer too, which made it manageable. Know that their sizing on sweaters is the boxiest I've ever encountered. However, the cotton-cashmere cardigan fits really well and didn't need any shrinking. I suppose it's a crapshoot. Both sweaters are very succeptible to pooching out at the elbows, making the sweater's arms look distorted.

Since people are talking about Banana Republic sweaters, I'll share my experience with an XS burnt-orange one. The fit is great but I was VERY displeased with their merino wool yarn. The second time I wore the sweater, I noticed pilling on the bottom of the forearms of the sweater, the sign of low-quality yarn. It's soft and fits well, but I am annoyed that it was obviously not built to last, especially considering I get compliments on it whenever I wear it.

At the moment, I am at this impasse where I haven't found any store that has XS sweaters in a cut and style that I like, but I also have enough sweaters now that I don't want for any new ones.

thanks! try see if I still can get the hickory color. the color is sold out on J Crew site.

So I got a millerain in S (I usually wear jcrew s) but the fit is just weird. At the bottom of the jacket it's weirdly tapered and at the chest it billows a bit. The arm holes are low, the shoulders fit alright but the sleeves are really long, whole thing is weird. I can't decide if i want to keep it and just wear it relaxed or sell it since i'm past returning. I really like the green color, especially all the different hues in the light, but ugh. how does it fit for everyone else?

It fits me the exact same way. It reminds me of a ski jacket. Like the one that Pierce Brosnon wore in one of James Bond movies when him and the hot chick skied down the mountain. I opted for this Waxed Cotton jacket from Martim and Osa. It runs true-to-size, if not slightly large.

From what I've read a lot of places, general rule is to size down .5 from your dress shoe size.
