Rated 5 out of 5 by ITexec More colors, please
This is just a terrific item. The inclusion of 5% cashmere gives the fabric a smooth luxurious feeling. The vest gives the effect of making a tie/shirt combo slightly more formal so that you can get by without a suit coat in certain situations or remove your suit coat when getting too warm but still look and feel put together. This is one of those items that adds range and variety to semi-serious clothes so that one doesn't feel one is wearing a uniform. But why so few colors?

Rated 5 out of 5 by TedReviews This Sweater Vest Saved My Life
No, that's not a typo. This lovely sweater vest not only looks amazeballs on me, it did, indeed save my life. I rolled my car on Interstate 95 on a snowy day in early December 2014, and from the point in time when the vehicle started tipping over to the point when it slammed to a stop, this sweater vest cradled me, not unlike my own dear mother did when I was an infant. Although, I was certainly a bit shaken up, I survived that crash, completely unmarred, because this sweater vest was there for me. It deserves six stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by edmyrealname Not happy with this sweater
Usually very pleased with LL Bean purchases, but not this time. It just does not fit right, and I don't like it. Reminds me of an inexpensive sweater from some other mail order company. Sorry to need to write this kind of review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by K7LA Almost Perfect
This item was purchased in Light Gray Heather to pair up with a red casual button down shirt and the combination was stunning. The vest is very comfortable, looks great and lies correctly around the neckline. If LL Bean would offer a greater color selection I would rate it at 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanShopperIN Comfortable, nice fit with a fine hand
The two cotton/cashmere sweater V-neck vests I recently ordered are every bit as nice as the two I purchased several years ago........both of which provided me with lots of use. They are nicely made, fit well, have a nice hand and wash up nicely. An excellent value!

I am never concerned about size and quality of your products. I only order from your company.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JimB69 returned twice
I have mixed feelings on this item. I returned this item twice. The first time was for sizing.I ordered and XL which was my normal size but the one I received was more like a 3X I returned it for a L. perfect fit. Very Happy but within a year the sleeves came apart at the ribbing. I returned it and will see how this one lasts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jaybyer You get what you pay for....
I am a devoted LLB customer because their products are generally first rate. I believe this is a case where they have sourced a very fragile garment to meet a low price point. These vests are soft and nicely detailed, but just not durable enough for every day wear.
I wore this vest for one day at a trade fair with a small daypack over my shoulder. The fabric of the daypack caused a patch of the back of the vest to pill to a point where the sweater was badly damaged...very unsightly.
Fortunately, LLB stood behind the product and they always do and I put the refund toward an LLB garment of more enduring value.
