Rated 5 out of 5áby Stukey Why did I wait?
Wonderful sweater. Warm, but not too bulky. The back collar can be comfortably worn up or down. My only regret is that I delayed the purchase several weeks by wondering whether the price was too much to spend on an LL Bean sweater. It is not. I am 5'9", 165 and wear a 16x33 dress shirt -- the medium fits great.

I work in an environment that is consistently 60 degrees. This sweater keeps me nice and warm. It doesn't lose it's shape - an all around winner.
I am 5'6", 170 lbs, I bought a size M, fits great.

Very well made, generously sized, fits well. I'm 5'11", 165lbs with a 34" waist and the Large fits with plenty of room. Caution might be needed if you find natural wool scratchy on bare skin, but over a shirt, the scratchiness is greatly reduced. The sweater is a tad pricey, but the quality and looks make it worth it.

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 NYCphotoguy Nice Looking Warm Sweater
I got this sweater in Grey and have been getting a ton of compliments on it. I'm borderline medium-large for shirt sizes. I got this in a medium and I'm happy with the fit. I've been wearing it with t-shirts underneath and it's comfortable and very warm.
