- It's in the details.... by Gary
Just chiming in on the cardigan that arrived today, navy blue Calling Card size S. I'm 5'8" 160lbs and it fits great. 100% cotton so it's washable if you get it dirty, and super soft to the touch.
But it's the small details that matter. In this case, immensely small, like the contrast thread on the side seams that's only partially viewable in ONE picture (lower torso detail) and mentioned in the product description as an afterthought.
Let's recap. VERY light gray thread down both sizes of a navy sweater. It's very light and very noticeable and looks like a garment-dyed shirt that is now stretched at the seams. Not flattering and honestly could be a deal-breaker for some.
I'm basically writing this review to call attention to this detail that, in my opinion, should be acknowledged more obviously, perhaps with a better picture.
I AM satisfied overall, and am not sending the sweater back because... it is insanely comfortable, I'll sew a new seam myself if it annoys me, and also Bonobos seems to have trouble keeping these things in stock. I'm just surprised nobody else has been troubled, or at least surprised, by what they seem to think is a minor detail.
