It's not only made well, but it looks great, too.

We often associate dusters with long, shapeless sacks, but Madewell’s structured and sophisticated iteration is anything but. It’s made with their premium yarn for a soft and luxurious feel, and at 34 inches long, it runs at about knee-length. This highly popular item has completely won over customers, too.

“I knew as soon as I pulled this on that it would be a forever favorite,” says one five-star reviewer. “It’s thick, cozy, slightly oversized but so chic. The sleeves are perfect, the fold-over collar is proportioned perfectly, and it lays beautifully. The knit is substantial, and the color is timeless.”
