Cashmere Butterfield Jacket

This beautiful sweater-jacket has been purchased by many Aficionadas. I thought this definitely needed its own post since it sounds like it will be sold out soon. ;)
Sky (in the post "Seek & Find: Will you visit J.Crew this Weekend?") shared with us: "I purchased the cashmere butterfield jacket in gray and it arrived few days ago. It was expensive but I somehow justified buying it now. It came in a gift box with a garmet bag and a pouch of scented moth balls - I thought it was a nice touch. When I first took it out of the box I thought it would be way too small for me (size S) but when I put it on, it fit great. I like everything about it: the lenght, buttons, color, trim, and how soft it feels without loosing its shape. The only thing I am concerned about is the belt on the back. It has two buttons and even though they are light, they pull down on the sides of the sweater. I am thinking about removing them. Overall it is a great piece and I am seriously considering buing the orange one as well. With the second one I'll wait until it goes on sale :)"
Sky also mentioned (in the "J.Crew Stores: Additional 25% Off Final Sale" post): "I received the orange cashmere butterfield jacket yesterday. ...The jacket is beautiful but there are three things I discovered after examining it in person. One is the color. The orange is not as red as on the picture. It is actually closer to true orange, rahter bold, but I like it better this way. Second, on the picture it looks like the trim may not match the color of the wool, but it is not the case. The front trim (the wide ribbon) and the wool covered buttons match the wool color perfectly. It must have been the flash that changed the color. Third, the jacket has a dark pink (azalia) trim under the colar and on the inside behind the buttons and the wide ribbon. The pink trim has an orange sheen. I think the jacket is just lovely. I also have the gray one and love it as well. Both jackets are a bit shorter on me than on the model (I am 5'9) but they fit great anyway."
Lindsay (in the post "J.Crew Stores: Additional 25% Off Final Sale") said: "I just received my butterfield jacket in grey and wore it out last night!! i got so many compliments and it's SO soft and thick. i am very short (5'2") and it seemed shorter on me that i had hoped but i still love it anyway. People are mentioning final sale for this item but I talked to a CSR and they said it will just sell out and it most likely will never go on sale. So if you love this coat...i say it's totally worth it!! It's such a classic piece that you can wear for many years to come :)"
