The J.Crew Tippi sweater was a staple of my wardrobe for years. But as the quality went down, I stopped buying them. They became thin, itchy, and they developed holes within weeks.
I recently purchased this Boden sweater (it comes in eight colors). It’s a cotton, nylon blend with just a small amount of wool. I prefer cotton sweaters because while I don’t have a wool allergy, I find wool-blend sweaters itchy.
This sweater is a good buy. It seems well-made. It is a little longer than most on the market, but not too long. Boden describes it as semi-fitted, so it has shape but isn’t tight. On a scale of 1-10, I give it an 8.5.
Could Boden be my J.Crew replacement? Maybe, I just wish they’d drop the garish prints on some of their things.
