I purchased this sweater for my son and he loves it. This sweater is a timeless classic, it fits him well even though he is tall and thin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SeriousOnlineShopper Nice, and great value
Not the nicest fisherman's knit i have owned, but nice enough that I bought a second after a year. First one is still great, second one is a different color. Comfy. Warm, but not too warm to wear when moving around in doors. Frays a little / pills a little. But considering the price looks good, feels good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LB2809 Great sweater
I am 6' 1 1/2" tall and weigh 230 lbs., not too much of a slob. The xl fits great and it did have a slight odor out of the bag, but the bar I went to the night I wore it, where they filmed part of 'The Departed', wasn't too crowded so I didn't hear any complaintts.
I hear that the place in Ireland for great sweaters is the Aran Islands; I don't think this sweater is made there though, but it is still a great sweater.
Erin Go Bragh!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ssmith362 Super warm but it smells and shrank!!
Sweater looks great and is warm. It has a smell that is not pleasant. I thought after a wash the smell would go away. I let it soak about five minutes in cold water and the smell got worst and the sweater had shrank to about half it's size. Will be sending back and trying another one thanks to Bean's great return policy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Texas2Step Looks good in cotton or wool
I originally purchased the cotton version of this sweater as a gift. Unfortunately the XL was too big and had to return it. The Large was sold out so I had to purchase the wool version since the recipient loved it so much. The wool version arrived two days before Christmas, a day earlier than LL Bean said it would arrive. Thanks, LLB, for a lovely Christmas gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KatieKY Beautiful sweater!
I purchased this for my husband as a Christmas gift. Wonderful quality and a beautiful traditional fisherman's sweater. Only issue was that my cats took a liking to it and moved it across the living room with their claws after it was opened on Christmas morning...and then made a nest in it. I guess they smelled the animal on the wool? They didn't do any damage that couldn't be fixed with a crochet needle, but just a heads up for people with cats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jasper15 Great fit and very comfortable.
This is even better than described in the catalogue. Very well made and very nice natural color. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a traditional Irish Fisherman's Sweater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by surfPRANO Best Customer Service EVER!!!
I had been looking for a Button Mock Henley Irish Fisherman's Sweater for some time. I finally found one on llbean.com, only to find out they had mediums and smalls left. I needed an extra large. I called the main store in Maine to see if they would back order one for me. Instead they called around all their stores and found me one. They called me back and two days later I got the absolute best wool Fisherman's Sweater around. It is exactly as advertised. High quality wool and fabulous workmanship. Thank you LL.Bean

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alex5497 Best Sweater Ever
This sweater is thick, warm, and beautifully designed. I have worn it one night to a few bars in my college town and have received countless compliments. I hope this thing lasts for years to come - it seems to be great quality. If not, I know LL Bean stays true to their guarantee - so there is nothing to worry about!
On another note - It did not have that lamb smell other people have commented about.
