Great Sweater,
April 16, 2014
By: AlexW
"This sweater is a thick wool. The color is slightly more tan than the pictures show. It is a bulky sweater. I found the sleeves trim and the body appropriately long. I'm 6' 180 lbs and it fits well. It is sized like a sweater not a jacket."

High quality, weird fit thru shoulders,
April 10, 2014
By: tpenn24
from Brentwood, TN
"Fantastic sweater. Looks nice and seemed to be top notch material and construction. Slightly itchy as is inevitable for this type of wool and should be no problem as this is a top layer. The only reason I returned mine was bc the fit thru the shoulders was very strange. At 6'2" 195lb and 31" waist I usually have trouble with clothing being too tight thru shoulder and chest not the case here. I ordered a Large and it felt great everywhere until I looked in the mirror and noticed the front and back of each shoulder was pooched out at the armpit, it basically fit but looked weird with this excess material bunched up and poking out at the shoulder/armpit. Maybe it was a onetime issue specific to the one sweater I had rec'd. Otherwise it was great."

Tight Stitching,
December 27, 2013
By: Billinalaska
from Alaska
"The sweater seems to be of high quality and has a nice weight to it. Might be the cable stitching on it, but it tends to "hug" the body some, and I'm a guy with a bit of a "pear" shape and so I wish it were just a little looser. Still - I think if you know this going in to the purchase, you'll be very happy. I'm keeping it and I'm sure I'll find many times to wear it."

Warm-Warm-Warm,
December 9, 2013
By: Steve625
from New York
"This is one beautiful sweater. The soft feel and warmth make it perfect for those days when all you want to do is sit in front of the fireplace and read or relax without worrying about the cold outside. I would recommend ordering a size larger than you usually wear as the knit is very tightly woven and it may feel very snug especially around the arms."

Bad fit,
November 29, 2013
By: FFEJ

"Nice wool, nice knitting, nice color, nice zipper. But, it seems to be cut for a teenage Ralph Lauren Euro model, and not a full grown
American man.
