Rated 1 out of 5 by Sherman9 Look at the review date! Not the same sweater now
I bought one of these in 2012 or so. I loved it!! Amazing wool. Generous cut -so much so I ordered a medium at 6'4" 210. I thought this summer I'll get the jump and order one now before they sell out. The 2014 version is NO WHERE near the same. First the material feels more like a heavy cotton and is not the rich wool it was. Second the sizing has changed and a medium now is about 3-4"smaller cut (I compared the 2012 to the 2014 side by side). I returned the 2014 version ~very disappointing. IT felt more like a mid level department store sweater and not the quality LL Bean product it once was. Sad. Why dont companies get it? You cant make things worse every year. Charge me a few bucks more and keep the quality!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ScottsReviews Excellent quality. Runs large.
As stated, this is an excellent quality sweater. I purchased a XXL tall, and it fit light a XXXL regular. I expected to squeeze into it and it fit perfectly, ...... lucky for me since it is not offered in a 3xl. Only wishing it was made in the U.S.A.!!!

Received the sweater and headed to Wisconsin with it. Very warm and comfortable. When i got home, I was glad I was wearing it because weather was cold and wet. Perfect sweater for the climate. Good fit and quality. The color matched the website.

This sweater will keep you warm. It's made from heavy wool, but it breathes enough to be comfortable when you are wearing it inside. It's cut loose to allow you to move. It is long and and goes below your waist. The collar stands up and covers your neck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EmergencyGuy Good for the office or outdoors.
Have one of these in chocolate brown and after my Irish fisherman sweater, it's my second favorite. It's much dressier looking than many wool sweaters and pairs well with khakis and a button-down shirt. Plus, there's a nice lining on the neck and the piping that makes it very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vortrekker Excellent outdoor sweater
The sweater is as advertised: extremely warm , naturally allows ventilation , and the lighter panels on the shoulders and back of arms allows flexibility without reducing the warmth. It is also a great comfort sweater indoors when the temperature drops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by creekham6 Warm and comfortable
My husband loves this sweater - wore it to a very good restaurant with a tie, wore it to a funeral and wore it with jeans - He loves everything we get from LLBean. Everything lasts and lasts forever it seems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wlybgr Merino wool sweater
I had to return an all wool shirt because although I always want to wear wool it always makes me itch. I heard of Merino wool that does not itch and I love it. It is warm, comfortable, and it looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by POAlover Great for casual or casual dress wear.
A great looking, warm, sweater! My husband loves this sweater and has worn it several times since he got it (a couple of weeks ago). He normally wears an XL and the L fits him great.
