Ratings & Reviews
Oh so soft and cuddly
This is a wonderfully soft sweater vest with no itching whatsoever. The length makes it safe to wear leggings without showing off more than you wanted. I initially ordered the small in the salt color which is taupe with pinkish undertones.
I found the small to be a little large under the armpits (115#, 5'5", 34c) so I'm exchanging it for the XS. It is NOT cut perfectly straight from armpits to hem but has a slightly tapered waist allowing me to minimally show off my hourglass figure.
The only wish-it-were-different for me would be to have a slightly lower neckline to allow collared shirts worn underneath to lay a little nicer.
Can't wait for the replacement to arrive! This will be a staple of my fall and winter wardrobe.
By: Toad & CoHi Janet, thanks for the feedback! We love the idea of pairing the MaKenna with a collared shirt-- right now it works great with a slimmer fitting button-down, but we will share your suggestion to lower the neck-line for future designs.
Minimalist Wardrobe Staple
This is so beautifully designed. It is simple, elegant and refined. It reminds me of a high end minimalist European designer piece. I am confident that I will wear this vest for years as a wardrobe staple. It goes with everything in my wardrobe. The fabric is a deliciously soft, chunky rib knit. Bonus points for it being non-mulesed merino wool. It's really like a favorite sweater, but without sleeves, which actually makes getting a coat or parka on and off so much easier. I bought my usual size and it fits extremely well, skimming the body in a flattering way. The teal color, which I bought, is gorgeous. I would love to see this also offered in a deep v-neck version next year, in darker colors, especially black, dark gray and burgundy. Don't get me wrong; keep a high necked version, but please offer a second style for versatility. I would purchase one or two of the v-neck, if you did, and I'm sure I'm not alone.
