The shape and style of the cardigan are good. Unfortunately, the quality of the merino leaves a lot to be desired. I've worn the cardigan only three times since I purchased it, and it has pilled badly on the sleeves. Over the years I've bought a lot of items from Lands End and in general have been impressed with the quality. I'm very disappointed that a cardigan costing this much has worn so badly when hardly worn. Good quality merino should wear much better.
