Rated 5 out of 5 by Armyguy03 Classic
As a 36 year old I have found myself navigating towards classic styles, because honestly, I'm tired of shopping. Any-who, I read some reviews after I ordered this online regarding the fit, so I decided to swing by my local LL Bean (Tysons) and try it on. A little disappointed to find that they had the color (red) I wanted marked HALF at what they are selling it online. YES HALF ($69.99). After I tried it on, it fit me perfect. I'm 6'2", 215lbs, athletic build. no complaints at all. Will visit the store more often to see if they will slash the prices on the Navy and Oatmeal. Great deal to be had if you can score like I did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLoveBean1980 Cozy and warm
You know there is no cold getting in the second you don this cardigan. It has supplanted a jacket for me on a few sub-40-degree days in NYC so far. My only complaint is that they need a size that comes between reg LL and tall LL that can accommodate and tall and thin male with longer arms. The chest size of the tall LL is way to big for me, and the regular LL sleeves are just slightly too short. Tall does not equal barrel-chested and rotund belly. It might just mean tall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ESNJTravelnHike Excellent Cardigan
Really just a perfect cardigan. Great around the house, or to go out in. Dress it up or down. Also, very well made and very thick and luxuriously warm. This is truly a great companion during a cold winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cathpah My favorite sweater on earth. I own it in 3 colors
Thick, 100% wool, and cut well. I bought this sweater in "moss" (olive) a few years ago, bought it in "oatmeal" (cream w/ blue accents) last year, and this year I bought it in "nautical blue" (navy w/ cream accents...basically opposite of oatmeal) and have zero regrets. I actually also ordered it in "mountain red" this year, but the burgundy w/ cream accents looked too salmon-y or light red for my tastes, and I felt a bit like santa claus, so I returned that purely because of the color. Aside from that, these sweaters are the best deal in cardigans out there, in my opinion. For the price, thickness, and fact that they're 100% wool...they just can't be beat.

Had the chance of ordering this in Navy. I thought it was the most "dressy" of all! I love it. I'm 180lbs, 5' 9" tall. A medium is nice on me. Just recently, I found it again in the marl combination. I love this sweater. As one reviewer said, you can dress it up or down. Wear it to work on those cold Texas mornings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WishILivedInME great combo of rugged and hip
My husband's new favorite sweater! The shawl collar is so attractive. Can be dressed up with a knit tie and wool trousers for work wear or dressed down with a flannel shirt and jeans for weekend wear. I don't know why someone said it ran small. The signature line offers modern cuts, and my husband, who is a 44R, ordered the large. It fits just as it should. He plans on ordering the other color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Paul4013 Great sweater at great price with one flaw
Fits well, looks great, warm, and a good price. BUT needs a loop on collar for top button so shawl can be drawn closer around neck. There is a button higher than shown but no closure for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mrybellea Old favorite back!!!
I had a sweater just like this 20 years ago. I wore it out and have been looking for a replacement for years. I was so happy when I saw it in the catalog and ordered it immediately.
The quality is exactly what I was expecting and can't wait for cooler temperatures so that I can wear it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Oldeweth Who is this made for ?
OMG ! This is what XL has come to ? This is barely a Medium let alone an XL. This is so far off it makes me think it was mislabeled. The most ill fitting item I have ever ordered from anyplace !!! This would hardly fit my cat let alone me. I am a 44 long and everything I have bought from Bean,including Signature,is either a L or XL,and has been fine . Someone needs to see how this item was sized and labeled.
