One of my first cashmere purchases from Everlane was their cropped cashmere crew neck sweater (reviewed here), which I love and still wear regularly today. Since then I've tried a ton of cashmere items from both Everlane and Grana, but I always go back to my cropped cashmere sweater. The last two winter seasons, Everlane has come out with cropped cashmere sweaters but it wasn't with the crew neck (there's the mockneck version and this year's v-neck version). But I've come to realize that the plain 'ole crew neck is what works best for me. So I was eager to try Grana's cashmere crop neck sweater released this year.
As I've said in the past, Grana's and Everlane's cashmere is pretty much the same excellent quality (soft and lightweight) and in a blind touch test, I can't tell the two apart. So really it comes down to a difference in the styles of sweaters offered. I wasn't a fan of Grana's regular cashmere styles last year (except for their cashmere long cardigan), but this year this cropped crew neck is my new favorite.
I'm wearing a small here (my usual Grana and Everlane size) and it fits perfectly. I really like how the front is a bit shorter than the back so it looks more cropped from the front (Everlane's crop sweater was also styled this way). This sweater probably works best with high-waisted pants since it is quite cropped.
So if you missed out on Everlane's crew neck crop sweater from 2015, then I would highly recommend this version from Grana. It's pretty much the same sweater.
As usual this review is not sponsored but made possible by all those who purchase through my referral link here (and you get 10% off your first purchase through the link). And you can find all my other Grana reviews here.
Also I wanted to let you guys know that for 2018 I'm planning to stop doing Grana reviews because I've decided to focus more of my time on styling what I already own and starting a journey towards a zero waste lifestyle. Also with the quality of Grana items decreasing (single layer silk, expensive cashmere sweaters that don't hold up (unlike this one), a change in their pima cotton tees) I'm less motivated to try things from them. So I think I will end my Grana reviews for now on this high note!
P.S. I found this great comparison post of current Grana and Everlane cashmere by Ashley here.
