Rated 5 out of 5áby CRead Great cold weather sweater
This is a beautiful sweater particularly in the grays which makes it just a little different from a traditional Irish knit.

Rated 2 out of 5áby birdiegal Not for me
I am 41" around the chest, and ordered a large. The sweater felt confining, so I would say that it runs small.
Although it certainly would be warm, I found the wool to be bulky, itchy, and not at all comfortable. It is not flattering if worn unbuttoned, as the ribbing around the bottom is snug and pulls the front edges to the sides.
I am sorry to say that there really is nothing I like about this sweater.
It has been returned.

Rated 3 out of 5áby LLBeanMEE beautiful sweater, but arms too short
This sweater is very soft and well made, but the arms were 6 inches too short. I'm 5 9, 130 and ordered a small. It fit well except for the arm length, wish I could have kept it!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Midwestactivelady Perfect Sweater
I normally wear a petite XS (Am 5'3" and 112 lbs.) It fit very well in the reg. XS size. I ordered the cream and it was soft (not itchy) with a classic look. I wanted a cream Irish sweater and ordered from several companies. The LL Bean sweater fit the best and the quality was very good. I am keeping this one and look forward to wearing it this winter with my skinny jeans and riding boots!

Rated 5 out of 5áby GoodlivingColorado Classy and Warm!
I bought the gray one last year and loved it so I added the cream. It is a classy look and incredibly warm. The irish wool and the design of the hand woven weave create an effective and comfortable barrier for the cold wind here in Colorado. I think this is one of LL Bean's finer sweaters in terms of quality and style. Definitely a sporty classy look. The fit is true to size. I would definitely recommend this sweater as a good addition to one's wardrobe.

I normally dont have time to write reviews, but this one needs to have one. I purchased this sweater in the grey color. It fits perfectly, so warm and snuggly. I wanted to purchase another color, but the small was gone. I hope LL Bean comes back with more colors in the fall or sometime soon. I LOVED it! I had so many compliments and very well made! I hope to enjoy this for many years to come. Thank you LL BEAN!

Rated 4 out of 5áby ironcowgirl 1912 Fisherman's Sweater
Christmas present to myself. Always wanted this type of sweater and the cream color was so pretty and it was the last in my size (XL) so I purchased it. It looks pretty and is true to size for me. I purchased at the store and there was no smell as some reviewers stated. When I got to cashier to pay for it, not only did cashier comment on how pretty it was but also another customer being checked out.
My only disappointment is that since it is a soft, loose-knit wool, it is not as warm as I thought it would be and I don't think I will wear it as "casually" or as "often" as I initially thought. I agree with other reviews that older similar sweaters were probably heavier and could probably withstand more abuse. This is a classic look, yet very "pretty" sweater and I will wear it selectively.
It fits well and is comfortable. I, also, had to roll back bottom of sleeve and it looks fine....just hope it doesn't stretch.
