    Anyone know anything about these sweaters on Bluefly?

    http://www.bluefly.com/pages/product...97&rvform=true

    They are by a brand called Harrison. They seem to be a fairly trim fit which is nice, and with the extra discount they are offering right now they seem to be a decent deal. They also have them in v-neck, crewneck, turtleneck and polo varieties in all the basic colours. I'm rather tempted but wanted to get any opinions first.

    Cheers.

    I got a couple of Harrison cashmeres from Bluefly a while back for around $100 each, and I haven't been too impressed. They haven't held their shape very well, they aren't as slim fitting as I like, and they tend to get very pilly. Not the worst sweaters I've ever seen, but, frankly, I would pony up an extra $50 or so and check out J. Crew cashmere - the sweaters are surprisingly nice for the price (I believe they use Loro Piana cashmere), not to mention slimmer fitting.

    Harrison is Bluefly's house brand. They are decent, but not the best options. I would put it below Express and BR quality, and definitely worse then J Crew. Probably better than what you'll get at TJ Maxx, but not by much (although sometimes you get lucky in TJM/Marshalls etc)
