Rated 5 out of 5áby NYthruhike It doesn't get any better
This smell thing that is going on here in some of these reviews are not so?this is an aroma, the aroma of 100% wool by it's very own nature, it's the aroma of high quality and money invested not spent. A very warm sweater indeed, @ 6'1" and 204lbs. I ordered an XL and it fits perfectly. Most worthy of wearing out on the first date and right on up to the last one. The only con with this sweater is that you must be prepared to answer lots of questions?.ie. where did you get it? how much did it cost? is it warm? The compliments? well, you will have to roll with them because you will surely get them?..It is also by their very own nature that L.L.Bean is all about quality, thank you L.L.Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5áby PrincetonLad Authentic down to the aroma
The gift was well received. The fit was perfect, the sweater was more than sufficiently warm and attractive. One thing that my husband liked but I wasn't sure about was that it definitely had the authentic aroma of sheep about it. My husband was delighted (having grown up raising sheep) and told me that they probably left some of the sheep oil in to keep the garment water resistant and warmer. He liked it, so...kudos!

Rated 5 out of 5áby mmelio Rich-looking, Warm, High-quality Sweater
We received this hand-knit well-made sweater today. My husband is 6 ft., and slim with broad shoulders and long arms. He usually wears a large (44) tall, but based on others' reviews, I ordered the large regular. It fits him perfectly, both in the torso and the sleeve length, which ends just at his wrist. I ordered the bright mariner Donegal color, and I'm glad I did--it's so much nicer and richer-looking than the color that is pictured. He said, "I don't deserve a sweater this nice." Thanks, LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 Great sweater
I don't normally review purchases, but this sweater is fantastic. 5'10" 165lbs. Order a medium usually in most things, but based on the reviews I ordered a small in this sweater and it is perfect. The feel, warmth and breath-ability are perfect. Not itchy, not overly warm when sitting in a cool house in winter time. Perfect outside in 30 degrees and below and snug enough to fit under a ski jacket if needed. If you are looking for an authentic Irish sweater this is the one. I've been looking for a good one for twenty years. This is it. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5áby COMTN970 I'll be warm this winter!
This was my first ever wool product and I am so happy that I bought it before the winter! The Heritage sweater was a little bulkier than I had expected, but I am completely satisfied with the purchase and I will definitely buy more wool products because of the high quality of wool and warmth

Rated 5 out of 5áby ChrisSnow Amazing Traditional Sweater
After missing out on this sweater last year when they went out of stock, I made sure to purchase one this year when they were available again. It did not disappoint me.The quality and comfort and great looks were even more apparent in person. The fit was great and is one of the least scratchy wool sweaters I've worn. I've received enthused compliments on it any time I wear it. A beautiful example of traditional Irish craftsmanship. It still hasn't been very cold this Fall in Virginia so I can't be sure how warm it is in colder temperatures but it's great in the 50s. Fairly loosely knit but I think it'll hold up down into the 30s, especially if I throw a long sleeved tee on underneath it. I am 6' 4" 220 lbs and the large fit me perfectly. I love this sweater and can't wait to wear it every chance I get this Fall. P.S. Some reviewers reported a strong scent of wool, but I did not find it bad at all. I actually like how it smells.

Rated 4 out of 5áby glocke12 Nice sweater, but sizing seems off
I am 5'9", 190 lbs, with a 33 inch waist and 38" chest, so I ordered this sweater in a medium thinking it would be sized appropriately.
The medium seemed to be cut pretty large. The sleeves were too long and there was a ton of extra material around the middle.
Ordered a small, which just arrived a little while ago and it is a much better fit.
Overall it's a nice sweater..as far as the reports of smells, give me a break. Its wool. I'd be disappointed if it did not smell!
