Looks Good,
May 2, 2013
By: KCee
from N W Texas
"I've only had this sweater for a short time (but it's been unseasonably cool) and I've had time to wear it. I've gotten a number of favorable comments and no unfavorable ones. The sweater is warm and the lambs wool is very comfortable. It's an all around good sweater at a reasonable price."

Great Sweater,
January 22, 2013
By: Qualitybuff
from Brookline, MA
"This is an excellent sweater that I would not have gotten had I not seen it in the store as the website picture makes it look very different. The photo shows a sweater that might appear soft and light.
However, this is in fact a really warm, heavy knit sweater for cold winter days. The contrast vertical ribbing in light grey and dark grey is striking and looks somewhat like a contemporary version of harris tweed. It looks great over a dark turtleneck or collared shirt.
It was on sale at the Orvis store closest to my house and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a thick winter sweater that is sturdily made."

Absolutely Not As Advertised,
January 4, 2013
By: 356fan
from San Francisco Bay Area
"Actual product does not even resemble the photo in the catalog; wrong colors, striping too prominent and, when examined in person, poor "make" that should embarrass Orvis for charging so much for it."

Terrific sweater!,
December 28, 2012
By: stan2
from Chicago, IL
"I am a real sweater guy and I really like my new plaited wool crew neck sweater. It fits great and is thick, warm, and comfortable. This is a real winter sweater, good to take the chill off no matter how cold it gets. I like, too, that looks good with khakis or cords. I especially like the unusual weave; I've never seen anything like it. I would recommend this sweater to anyone, plus it would make a great gift."

"The Plaited Wool Crew from Orvis is exactly how sweaters should be constructed. Great fit, fantastic quality, not scratchy, heavy duty, and great looking country style. I expect to get many seasons of wear from this very well made sweater."

Sturdy Winter Sweater,
October 8, 2012
By: Seattlite
from Seattle
"I sent this one back. It is a well made heavy winter sweater, not what I expcected based on the picture. I wanted a much lighter monotone sweater. The sweater has sort of a striped or houndstooth appearance. It is made for casual, outdoor use, and should keep you warm in very cold weather."
