I like it
Only had this in a size 10 at my local store and liked the look of it enough to try it on even though I normally wear size 8. It looked great with the grey straight leg jeans I was wearing so made the purchase.
Came online to see how I had missed this on the website and what others had to say. Agree it is slightly boxy (but it somehow works for me). It has an inside -out seems look, the material does hang very well and it is quite itchy. Not sure if it is worth mentioning but the label states it contains 2% cashmere. I do wonder what the size 8 would look like but am not going to exchange as am happy with the 10.

I was tempted to buy this online but not sure based on other reviews. I am normally a size 8 in WS tops. My local shop had one in the sale in a size 10 which I tried. It was too big but I fell in love with the top so have ordered an 8 online in the sale. It's quite boxy but that's the style and i think looks really nice and it's something different. It is itchy so I will definitely wear a tshirt underneath. I probably wouldn't have bought it full price but happy with sale price. Will wear it for work with a dark grey skirt.
If you get it definitely size down because of the boxiness.

Happy with my Hudson
My daughters picked this out for me on a shopping trip ... I had completely bypassed it! And so glad they did! Granted it is not fitted, but I find that the weight of the fabric means it hangs well. And yes, it is a little scratchy but then that's alpaca for you. A very gentle wash with plenty of fabric conditioner usually sorts that out. It's also of a style that you could easily wear a long sleeved tee underneath (I go for a pale grey) if you find it scratchy.
Looks very smart with my Polly Pencil skirt from last year for work but I also team it with the purple haze sorell jeans, the pot of luck scarf and the billy wool biker jacket - and it has to be one of my favourite outfits!
