Rated 2 out of 5 by Sbarj231 Tight fit
Order one size bigger than you need and you should be happy. Good quality just bad sizing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CampingMom13 Very Happy With This Sweater
I bought one of these sweaters for my son a year or so ago. He is hard to buy for but loved that sweater so much that I tried to get it in the other colors. The other colors were sold out so when I saw it in Navy I ordered it right away. He really loves both of them especially since it is soft. It is cotton which makes it easier to care for and is more than warm enough where we live.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 3labs3kids1hubby1me Very short torso & long arms
I ordered this in an XL for our "Husky" son. It is very short in the torso and long in the arms (at least the arms can be folded back). It has to be returned because of the fit. It's disappointing because I like the quality and it's soft (not itchy). He liked how it felt on, which is saying a lot because he is on the autism spectrum and very picky about how clothes "feel", but it looked like a crop-top!

Rated 2 out of 5 by MomOfFivesome Size 14-16 was not snug, it was boxy.
The size L 14-16 is definitely not styled to be at all snug. It is very boxy. From shoulder to hem this size measures 23 inches in length. From armpit to armpit across the front is 20 inches. This is not the right ratio for a close-to-the-body fit. Maybe if it were three inches less wide across the body -- or three inches longer! The sleeve, by the way, was 19 inches long.
My son felt that the style seemed slightly feminine. I think this was because it was boxy.
I was disappointed in the somewhat matty, wisped texture (tiny broken ends of fabric throughout). It looked as though it had been washed and worn several times. I was looking for something more crisp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PunkPoet Love this sweater (petite woman!) in XL
I am a petite woman and I have bought this sweater in red and white. I wear a size 4/6 and the L would probably fit me, but I like the roominess of the XL. Washes well (cold water, hang dry) and good quality. Love the cables and the quarter zip : I can layer a shirt underneath and open the neck as I tend to get warm inside. Delighted with this purchase, would buy for boys or anyone! The CSRs at LLBean are wonderful helping you choose the correct size :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by zenlife Well made
Got in lovely red color. I was pleasantly surprised how well made this sweater is, for a kids version. It was heavy, thick weave and appeared very warm. Now I had sized up based on other reviews saying it is snug, so body was fine, but the sleeves were 1.5 times my sons arm length, so sadly had to return.

Rated 1 out of 5 by citymom07 Dissappointing re-design
I purchased the wool fisherman sweater for my two year old four years ago. When he finally grew out of it, I reordered the quarter zip thinking that it would be the same lovely and warm sweater my kid had worn for two years. I was extremely disappointed to discover that not only was this no longer a warm wool sweater (with an admittedly dashing quarter zip design) but that the sizing had also changed: I ordered a size up (7) so my kid could grow into it (as I had done with the first sweater), and it barely fit my then 5 and 3/4 year old. My kid is not exceptionally tall. He wore it last year but it didn't hold up like the wool sweater. It got stained (which the wool never did as wool is naturally stain repellant) and it got oddly stretched from use. Wool sweaters for kids are not easy to find and I breathed a sigh of relief when I came across this one. Too bad. I'll be looking elsewhere this year.

by nurture Classic With A Twist
This style is an updated classic with a modern (slim) fit. The snug proportions are intended, as part of the design. This is so your children don't look like they are wearing something found in someone's attic trunk. The zipper collar also updates the look.
We purchased sizes 7X, 8, and 10/12 for our boys ages 7, 9, and 11 and layered them over button-down shirts. These sweaters looked great in our holiday photos. My sons always receive compliments whenever they wear them. I am here purchasing the next size up for future Christmas'

Rated 5 out of 5 by CDELAE Beautiful sweater, a little on the small side
I bought this sweeter for my petite 11 years old son. Bought it in the 10-12. He usually wears 7 or 8. It fit him just right. Other than that, is a great purchase. Will keep getting it year after year. He loves it too!!
