A chic 1950s inspired evening cover-up? Or a stylish, yet casual layer? Lady-like elegance is what springs to mind with this beautiful vintage cardigan.

Just that bit special

Just bought yet another of these cardis in that beautiful deep damson colour. I find they just elevate a summer's dress, these cardis look so stylish.

Disappointed with colour

Fit and quality I gave 5 stars. Regarding the colour (glacier) I unfortunately awarded it one star only. When the cardigan arrived the colour was very different to the website. The glacier colour was a very washed out colour. Sorry Brora!

Comfortable and looks smart

This is the second collared cardigan I've purchased. I particularly like the fact that it is warmer than a jacket but achieves the same effect - great for winter. The sizing came up well for me (size 16) and I didn't need to change it (I have had to size down/up in the past with some Brora designs). Loved the aubergine colour.

Excellent cardigan

I originally bought my first collared cardigan ( size 14) over four years ago and is still in excellent condition. Recently I bought the plum one. The sizing seems to come up slightly smaller and I have opted for a 16. It seems to be exactly the same size as the other one.They are great with dresses, skirts and jeans. Wonderful feel to the wool. Two of my most favourite items of clothing.

So Glad I Own One of These Now!

I have always admired this vintage style cardigan and when I saw it in the sale in my favorite colour (dragonfly) and size I just had to have it. The colour is much nicer than I expected. It is really smart and classy and looks good both with or without a pretty scarf.Having read other reviews recommending to go up a size I was a bit worried that it would be too small or skimpy. However, it is perfect in every way. I am short (5ft 2) so I only ever buy tops with shorter length sleeves as full length are way too long on me and take away from the look. I think 3/4 sleeves look more elegent anyway

Favourite cardigan.

I love the feminine style of this collared cardigan - I now have it in three different colours. For what it's worth, I always purchase one size bigger - usually take a 10/12, but find size 14 better in this style, in order to get extra length. Like other reviewers, I don't like to feel exposed at the midriff! The cuff at the hem is deep enough to nip-in the waistline, and, with 3/4 sleeves, sleeve-length with the bigger size is not a problem.

Smart and something different

Bought 2 in the sale - chamomile and dragonfly. They lift a summer's dress into a smarter, more elegant realm. I always buy these in 10, which is a close fit on me but I don't want to lose the shape by buying a larger size.

Beautiful cardigan, fit and style

I have always loved this vintage style cardigan and decided to treat myself. It is lovely and perfect to wear over a light dress or skirt at this time of year. I have the navy colour-way. The only con for me are the small buttons - I have large fingers!

Shorter but Still Sweet

I love the design of this being fitted, and though it is shorter, it looks great with skirts and pants with a higher waist. I consider the style to be kind of retro 50s romantic. I also like that it can be worn buttoned up or over a shell top. The neckline is very flattering. I highly recommend it. Craftsmanship is excellent.

Neat cardigan for wearing over dress

I bought this jumper after seeing a picture of it paired with a silk dress I had already bought. It does the job and I'm sure it will be useful but I must say I'm not generally a fan of 3/4 length sleeves. Full length is so much more versatile - and sleeves can always be pushed up but in winter bare wrists are not comfortable. I felt there was also a bit of skimping with the collar - it would have been much better if it came an inch further forward on each side. It does feel a bit as if Brora designers looked for ways to reduce the yarn usage on this garment. Having said that the buttons are good and the colour (peppermint) a nice fresh green.

It's a Keeper!

Air Conditioning in the South makes sweaters a requirement all year round. I love the color and feel of this cardigan. I have been wearing it constantly since I got it. It goes with everything. I like the simple styling and the way the collar lays. Craftsmanship is solid. I know I will have it for years to come.I wear a 10-12 Us and a 14UK fits just right.

My new favourite thing

I love this cardigan! It is beautifully soft and the colour (driftwood) goes with so many things. The fit is great and the length good on me-I am 160cm. I also like the sleeve length, which is about mid-forearm. I haven't washed it yet, but based on previous experience it will last for ages. I hope to buy more in this style.

Much loved shape in a beautiful green

The mint version is my second cardigan in this cosy shape. I was not sure about the green when I saw it online, but am very happy with it. The mint is a fresh and lovely mix of light and dark shades, medium bright in a pleasant way, very similar to the Pistachio green Brora linen tennis dress of 2 years ago. I bought the cardigan for the warmer season and will wear it with grey, beige and sky blue skirts. Could not resist the beautiful mint lace knit scarf to go with it.

Chic Cardigan

I bought this in Winter White and it's a beautiful cream colour, flattering to most complexions, even if pale. I'm usually a size 12, but chose the 10 for a neater fit. Well made and warm, with ideal length sleeves for shorter arms such as mine. Perfect.

Lovely but short

Love the nostalgia of this cardigan, the effortless look of the 50s when a pretty cardigan and skirt were all you needed to look good. It looks lovely with pearls. But I agree with lots of others it's too short. And I still have to turn down lots of Brora things I'd like because of the 3/4 sleeves, cold in winter and autumn and if I want them shorter in spring I can pull them back. Would love to see more collared cardigans and a sensible length.

Pounds per wear

This cardigan has proved good value ( I tell myself) and I wear my two cardigans with everything in my wardrobe. I love the length of both the body and the sleeves and I love the style. Only reservation is that the collar has become detached from the body of both of the cardigans over time. It won't stop me buying another one though.

I agree: two inches longer, please

I have two of these cardigans, and do love them, but must have a matching thermal underneath to achieve a decent length. I am 5feet 9 inches tall, and this cardigan is simply too short on its own. Please offer a longer length for taller customers. I would pay more for this option.

Make it two inches longer

I am an average height on 5ft 6. Why oh why don't Brora make more collar cardigans? But also a couple of inches longer. It is just too short in the body, and makes it uncomfortable to wear, as a cold gap tends to appear. Many women of my age want cardigans/jersies that we can wear without anything except underwear underneath, as everywhere is so hot! But Though this lovely cardigan has a collar, very flattering to my age, it is too short for comfort. I bit the bullet and sent the lovely crabapple one back. Please take note for further collections!!

LOVELY NOSTALGIA, BIT BIG

I have this in pink, pale grey and purple. It's a lovely nostalgic cardigan, bit 1930s. But agree with others who find it large/shapeless. Also three quarter sleeves - I don't get them. They may look more feminine but I just want to keep pulling them down. If we want shorter sleeves we can slide them up a bit. With long sleeves and a slightly fitted waist this would be perfect. Usual size too baggy, size down too small. I think it's the fit not the size. Still lovely though.

This sweater's so nice, I bought it twice

I already own this cardi in amethyst and bought it again in cerulean; both are rich, slightly heathered colours. It is a bit wide in the body--might size down though the size down was sold out. I decided to buy it anyway (in the sales) since I wear version one so often. Buttons are securely sewn and there has been minimal to no pilling on the amethyst version, which I believe is as it should be for the price.

Three-quarter length sleeves

I am sending this cardigan back because I didn't realise that the sleeves were 3/4 length. In fact on me they were a sort of 5/8 length and simply looked as if they'd shrunk! Great pity because the colour (cerulean) was a beautiful shade. Please make other garments in this colour.

DISAPPOINTED BY QUALITY

I have ordered this style in various colours and was always happy with fit and quality - however, the last, navy one I bought was very poor quality. The stitching around collar and sleeves began to unravel about a week after purchase. Should have returned it, I know, but instead had the fun of mending it myself. Not Brora's usual quality.

Generous sizing, rich colour, lovely bracelet sleeves

The buttons are sewn on well, which is an important indicator of quality for me. The colour is deep and slightly heathered and the style is comfortably conservative but never boring. I probably could have sized down as it is especially generous through the torso but, magically, without being sloppy. I hope to wear it forever but I was suspicious of the card it came with claiming pilling was natural. I have vintage cashmere with no pilling; I call shenanigans on that. But I have worn it almost daily for over two weeks and there is no pilling so I've decided to trust the quality and assume the disclaimer is unnecessary.

Gorgeous but roomy

Adorable cardigan but wish I'd bought a size down in the two I have - I find it a bit too loose so I feel a bit frumpy. Won't stop me buying another though in smaller size as it's a dream to have such a pretty 50's cardi. As with other Brora cashmeres I expect the softness can depend a bit on the colour, I have this in pale spring colours and they are the softest of all my Brora things apart from chunky items.

I was undecided about purchasing this item given other reviews, so waited until the sale.

Makes me feel a million dollars when I wear it!

This cardigan is a pure delight. I love the colour, the cute button, the smart collar, and the fit with 3/4 sleeves so no need to keep pushing up sleeves when using the computer at work. It can be dressed up with a smart skirt or down with jeans. My only tiny criticism is that I would prefer it to be 2 cm longer so that it's a bit more elegant with lower cut jeans. But it's looks lovely with everything else so I would not part with it for anything!

Rather short

I agree with the reviewer who said that she found the cardigan a little too short. I am not tall or long in the waist but still found this too short in the body for comfort - don't care for several centimetres of midriff on show. While the fitted shape and overall style of the cardigan is lovely, an extra 5cm on the length would make it much more wearable. Waists on trousers and skirts haven't yet risen to their 1980s levels and until they do this leaves most of us with a Winnie the Pooh style gape.

beautiful cardigan

This cardigan is exquisite. It is a lovely cedar colour, and very soft. My daughter says it has understated elegance. One request: I love the 'cropped look but it is just a bit too short for those of us 59. Might Brora have a long version of some styles to accommodate tall customers? Otherwise this garment is close to perfect for me.

Lovely soft colours

I got cedar & ink & both are very soft colours - as usual unique to Brora. Particularly like the cedar. I love the collared style - it works really well with the Brora thermal tops and the Liberty print jersey dresses. The cardigan is a fairly cropped style which I like for wearing with dresses or skirts.
