Rated 5 out of 5áby 8everly Flattering
This is a heavier weight sweater, which is strange that it's a 3/4 sleeve, but it works well overall. The design is classic but unique. I'm 5'4", 34Ax29x39 and the XS fits well. It is a slim fit, which I prefer, and the neckline is flattering. There was some shrinkage from washing & drying, as well as tightening of the arm cuffs, but some light stretching brings it back to a comfortable shape. For a looser fit, as displayed on the model, I would have sized up to an S but I am happy with the slimmer fit of the XS.
I bought the Natural color and the representation online is slightly inaccurate. The actual color is more a a marled-wheat versus the marled-beige that appears in the photo online. (Perhaps over time it will fade to more of a beige color?)

Rated 5 out of 5áby PetXtraSmall GREAT sweater with gorgeous drape & fit!
I like this sweater so much, I bought all but the green and wish I'd bought that when it was available. The yarns are so soft and the drape is very flexible because (I think) of the Modal & Rayon in it. Wish there were more sweaters done with that combination because the fit is so comfy and flattering. I'm 5'2", slender, weigh 105, and the XS fit perfectly. I like 3/4 sleeves and the fit was just like the picture, low on the hips but not below. Very warm for such a lightweight knit.
Please, LLBean, more colors next time - especially an ivory/cream marled combination or grey/charcoal or lavender/purple - and I hope I see it again in the spring as well as next fall. I'd easily buy more because you can dress it up or wear with khakis. Looks great with scarves or the long bead necklaces I make. A GREAT sweater, my favorite!

Beautiful sweater. I like the three quarter sleeves. Warm yet not bulky. I am happy that I ordered two!

Rated 5 out of 5áby DivHik2 Beautiful, great fit.
I purchased this in the Chambray color, loved it. I personally like the ż sleeves which is hard to find in sweaters. I purchased my normal size of Medium and loved the fit. I've received several compliments on the color and style. I get hot easily so I normally don?t wear sweaters inside, but I've already worn this sweater twice to work and was comfortable all day.

This is a great sweater! I just wore it to work for the first time and got tons of compliments. The burnt sienna color is awesome - an orangy/coral/brick combo that looks good on this redhead!
The 3/4 sleeves are a little funny on a sweater but end up working fine.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LLBeanFanManhattan Fantastic sweater
I picked the bay leaf and the color is as soft as the sweater is. I think this is the softest sweater I've ever purchased from LL Bean. The details of the knitting add to the attractiveness of the sweater and the 3/4 sleeves are the perfect length. I'm 5'8" so maybe for my height, the 3/4 length is a match. The sweater falls to the hip and can be tucked in or not. Anyone who buys this will really enjoy it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby JulieBee Comfortable, great color
I've worn this sweater twice now and love it. It is soft and thick, which is great for fall in New England, but not so warm that it is too hot to wear inside. I've gotten lots of complements on the three-quarter length sleeves. I ordered the "Bay Leaf" color, and as other reviewers have said, the picture appears much lighter than the actual sweater. The sweater is not a washed out green-grey, but an earthy green.

I just received this sweater a few weeks ago. I love it. It is wonderful especially with the 3/4 sleeves. I ordered the other 3 colors. Will enjoy this in fall, winter, and spring seasons I am sure.

Rated 3 out of 5áby KittyKatReview Marled Sweater
Bought two, bay leaf and burnt sienna. The sweater itself is nice, feels good, but too boxy for me. It stretched out quickly, ended up feeling loose and baggy and I like a more fitted look. Bay leaf color was awful for my complexion, burnt sienna was beautiful and wish this color had more options! Had to send both back, just the wrong style.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Cockerspanielfan Pretty, but ran a little small for me!
I'm returning this sweater. Although it is well-made, attractive & fashionable. I'm a bit busty & it didn't flatter me; the cables add bulk up top. Quality seemed up to L.L. Bean's exemplary standards, though. Best for a woman with a small to medium size chest.
