shiny but made of fragile tinsel
December 11, 2015
I got the Black Opal sweater in S. like all the fisherman sweaters it's nice and heavy and has a unisex (boyfriend) fit, not scratchy, and still breathes. just one problem: instead of using regular cotton yarn that's been blasted with a metallic treatment (which is what their product description implies to me), it uses regular black yarn, with what looks and feels exactly like cheap plastic christmas tinsel woven in. so while the shine effect is really striking, the sweater is fragile — the tinsel has no strength or grip, so it pulls, tears, and sheds itself easily. even after one day of gentle use. I don't want to know how it's going to fare in the wash...I still love the look of this sweater, but I only recommend buying it if it's on sale, and you're not too picky about it taking on a "hairy" look from the tinsel threads coming loose over time.

This is a cool, versatile sweater that fits a little big (but I think it's suppose to be like that). I got the XS, and the shoulders are definitely pretty large, but it looks good! I wear it with jeans or AA's circle skirt & tights. The material is not at all scratchy like I thought it would be since it's metallic yarn. Definitely good quality construction here. It's not a very warm sweater but you can wear a long sleeve shirt underneath it. I got it in emerald and it is such a beautiful color! My only problem is that it gets a little stretched out the more you wear it. It's also dry clean only which is a pain, but I hand washed it/laid it flat to dry and it seemed fine.

A real gem

I got the black metallic in medium. The picture really doesn't do it justice. The multicolor metallic accents are really stunning and eye catching, reflecting a whole rainbow of colors in the light. I got so many compliments wearing this. Definitely one of my favorite items from this year's winter line, and definitely worth every penny.

Worth It!!

Okay, so acquiring this sweater was a bit of an odyssey, but now that it is in my possession, I am quite pleased I chose to persevere. I originally wanted it in an XS, but that sold out in a twice, so I "settled" for the small in Black Opal. For whatever reason, the item never shipped from the retail store (it was sold out at the factory), and, as a result, I did not receive it in time for NY's Eve, which is what I wanted it for. However, a sales rep at AA (Shakira) was able to ensure that I got the sweater, and gave me 30% off. It showed up about 5 minutes ago, and I'm wearing it now. IT. IS. AWESOME. Beautiful colors, not too garish, perfect fit (glad I ended up with the small), and I think I'll be able to wear this even when the holidays are over. It seems well-made, although I intend to baby it, nonetheless. I say, if you can get your hands on it, do!
