Rated 2 out of 5 by StLBerg Odd sizing
I wanted to like this sweater. I have three other Double L sweaters purchased from the current season in two styles. The length of this crewneck is nothing like the other three I own. I ordered my usual size of XS and the sweater barely fit over my head. Once I had it on I couldn't believe how short it was compared to the other styles I own. The length was at least 3 inches shorter than the other sweaters are on me. Oddly enough the arms were the correct length. I am 5'5" and weigh 110 and always wear an XS from L.L. Bean if that helps anyone. I am sadly sending this back. I love the three other Double L sweaters I have so I guess I will try again with another style.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RK22 Shorter than usual sweater
I received this sweater as a gift. The purple color was beautiful. I'm 5ft7in and this sweater is described as hip length. Barely, as it fell just very slightly below my waist and seemed shorter than other "hip length" sweaters I've purchased. Described as slightly fitted but seemed less so than others with that description and the sleeves were also short. Returned the sweater for another style that was longer in both body and sleeve length.

Rated 2 out of 5 by merf An everyday sweater not offered in Navy?
How can an everyday casual sweater NOT be offered in navy blue???? And what happened to the nice easy fitting smooth knit double L cotton sweater in crew and vee neck that is my wardrobe staple?? Very unhappy with whomever made the poor decision to carry this as the only option. I will shop elsewhere.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ilovesandals Pretty colors, but...
This sweater comes in lots of pretty colors, and I really like the style. Unfortunately, the sleeves are unusually long and the sweater feels very scratchy and rigid, even after washing. It might work for women with long arms whose skin is not sensitive, but I'm going to have to return it. Pity, because it is such an attractive sweater.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ShopperfromCanada Nice but too heavy
This sweater seems to be well made and is a pretty colour (purple), but it's too heavy for me to wear inside my office. If you work in a cool-temperature place or want to wear this outside, it would be fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RIYogaGirl Classic Sweater
I have ordered so many of the Double L Sweaters over the years. They are well made and wash well. My favorite style is the buttoned cardigan style, but this season I decided to try the crew neck style. It fits well and will look nice with black pants for work. I ordered the lighter blue color (don't remember the exact color name) - it is gorgeous in person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Janieec Great sweater
Looking forward to cooler weather so I can wear this sweater. The fit is on the more fitted end of normal. I wear a medium in LLBean tops and the medium in this sweater while not loose, fits well, slims my arms and torso.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kbnh99 Different styling than a few years ago
I agree that this sweater washes well and keeps its shape. Also agree that it is a tad short and a tad small. I am 5'3", 130lbs and wear a medium regular comfortably (I usually wear small in tops#. The other "thing" is that the styling has changed in the past few years. My older Double L sweaters #4-5 years ago) have raglan sleeves that are super comfortable. This new style has "regular" sewn-in sleeves that are not as comfy. If you don't know the difference you probably won't care. If you have an older style, then this newer style is not as comfy as before. Bummer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Capegardengirl Love this sweater!
I own this sweater in several colors: yellow, navy, stone, kelley green, pink, and red..This sweater is very comfy.?They wash very well, are gorgeous and sturdy and keep their shape?They tend to a run a little small if you are busty..I get one size larger and let it shrink a tiny bit in the dryer, where it becomes soft..The colors dont fade and the stitching doesn't unravel..The weight is a medium one and perfect for cooler fall days into winter?.Because of its substantial weight, I find it keeps me very warm?A casual style thats classy and tailored...The neckline is a wide jewel one that layers easily and neatly with a long sleeve t shirt or light sweatshirt on cold winter days..I lived in them last winter...I want to get the medium blue color and lavender to complete the colors so bring please bring them back for Fall of 2014!..
