Rated 5 out of 5 by happymomof2 LOVELY SWEATER
I purchased this sweater in black cherry and it is a really pretty sweater. It is thick, soft, and the color is beautiful, just as I had hoped. I usually wear a small or medium in L.L. Bean clothing, depending upon the cut (I am 5'5", 135), and ordered a medium in this since I am a little older and felt the Signature line might be a little close-cut for me. I probably could have taken a small, but I wanted it a little on the loose side. I love the shawl collar and the classic look of the sweater. It is not a shortened version of a cardigan~hits me mid-hip, which surprised me a little because I am long-waisted. However, that was the way I wanted it to be so I am happy. The only thing I might change about it would be the size of the buttons; I feel they are a bit oversized since they are a natural color but love the sweater just the same. Very substantial and it will likely be very warm once the weather cools down. I hesitated in purchasing because I felt it was a little pricey, but I'm glad I bought it and would purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hana707 Classic fit soft and warm
I bought this in salt/ small. I'm a size 6 and it fits perfectly.This fit is slightly loose but not bulky. I love the off white color. It is casual but tailored. Very soft and warm.

The cut is great, but it started pilling after a week of wear! I bought it to compliment my winter work wardrobe or to throw over a t-shirt and jeans on the weekends, but it just looks ratty and terrible now. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GeneralMcLaneFan Beautiful color, soft and well designed
I've been watching this cardigan over the past months as it has come in and out of stock in the various colors. X small in pomegranate was finally available (for a few hours!!) so I quickly ordered it. The color is so bright and cheerful, especially for winter, so I'll be wearing it frequently. Several years ago Bean had a dark green cardigan in Signature but it was double breasted, which was just too big for me. This single breasted style is much more flattering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jrkc Great sweater
The other reviews are 100% correct. This is a lovely sweater made with soft wool that is not bulky or itchy. I wear a small and ordered a small and it fits perfectly. I'm hoping LLB restocks this sweater - I would love to have it in the coral color. Yes, its pricey but sometimes you get what you pay for.

Got this in my regular size small and absolutely love it. Weighty, substantial, feel great sweater. If it comes back in stock in ANY color just buy it you won't be sorry. I bought the navy blue and as a previous customer said it is a very dark almost black navy. Hope they get more in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MDpyrmom There's a reason they sold out
Perhaps these will come back in stock----and if they do, I'd recommend not waiting! It is a dreamy thick, substantial sweater. I like everything about it---the length, the pockets, the buttons. It is a great sweater. One warning though---I definitely needed to size down. I ordered my usual LLB size S in the Cream and it was just too too big all around. I next tried the XS in Navy (which is almost black) and it fits perfect. Lucky I ordered quickly because now they're all gone. So don't be afraid to order down from your usual size if they come back in stock! One more comment---this sweater is nothing like the washable merino shawl collar sweater on the normal LLB site. I have and like that one too, but this sweater is just in a different class.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PetiteBeaniac Perfect!
This is one fabulous sweater! No wonder it is already out of stock in most sizes and colors. I ordered a navy and a pomegranite, thinking I would return one but I can't possibly send either one back. This sweater is a very heavy knit so it could be described as a sweater coat. It fits snugly around your hips and is very flattering. But I love it best because it is so cozy and warm. Lucky I got two because I will be living in it this winter. If you find one available in your size, snap it up!

WONDERFUL sweater!!! I would highly recommend this cardigan! The quality and knit are outstanding. The weight, feel and length are great. This sweater just feels so good. So happy with this purchase. If you look good in this color, get this cardigan. Worth it!
