Rated 4 out of 5 by LLHaricotine Unusual texture and colour
This sweater, in burnt orange,is just roomy enough and fits me nicely. Beware : the sleeves are a little tight around the forearm, which makes them nearly impossible to roll up. The 'heathered' colour is beautiful and unusual. The fabric is a little lighter than I expected, but that doesn't bother me.
My 21-yo daughter has already borrowed it from me! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by NColoradoLLBeanShopper Great pullover
This is not really "lightweight." It's a little heavier than that, which makes it drape well. It's the perfect weight for the walks I take in the morning and evening 5 months of the year. I love this; I'll probably get more. The solid color is kind of heathery, which I like a lot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by yourmajesty Nicer than expected
Striping in the yarn is well done. Color is saturated. Nice. The roll tabs were unnecessary. Fit is slightly small. My usual size still fit but would have been nicer if it were roomier. Looks nice with my Spring Point vest. I think it is a very nice "sweat" type top.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mommycozy Very long and baggy
This pullover has wonderful colors (flag blue and mallard green) and interesting texture. However, it is quite big and long, not true to size. I would not pay full price for it. The buttons are unnecessary.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NN4CR Cute style, nice fabric, meh buttons
Very nice casual shirt. Interesting fabric striations and excellent color choices (for a change). Soft, mid-weight, feels easy. Could be looser thru body area, it's not relaxed like the old days. Raglan sleeves and rounded neckline (a bit more open that a crew) add to classy casual effect.
Only negative is buttons on the side of sleeves look goofy, especially on the lighter colors where they really stand out. They are completely unnecessary because these sleeves will roll up and stay in place without the tab, they have a large cuff and the sleeve naturally stays in place due to the type of fabric and bit of stretch to it.
I'd like to try removing the buttons but this shirt is so well made the tabs and stitching are not flimsy and I don't think the buttons could be removed without damaging the fabric. Someone decided roll-tabs would be a good feature for this shirt and the decision was not thought out. Why use plastic buttons that imitate shiny metal? Or if you must, stick 3 more at the corners of the neckline triangle and make it a "look" but these just stick out. Really like this shirt, but afraid I might have to return, as buttons look so ridiculous. Remember Chanel, take off one thing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by teesandjeans Love material
I love the nice fabric, has a slightly nubby feel, with a slight gnarly stripe in fabric. Inside it has a thinner loopy terry feel, so that it is nice for early spring. I am an apple shape, and this nicely covers my tummy without being too long. It also is not a fabric that clings, which is a plus in my book. My only advise is, that the arms are a little slender, so you might want to watch out for that, if it is a problem area. All in all, I really love this top.

Just got this yesterday and I'm back for another color. The fit is very slightly fitted in my opinion and works perfectly for me. The weight is good year-round.

Rated 3 out of 5 by soupyRN French Terry Pullover
I received this in my regular size and it was HUGE!! The top is very wide. It literally looked like I was wearing a potato sack.Checked my measurements with the chart-they match the small size. Wonder if it was labeled incorrectly? Strange.The material is okay.This top would look good on a Plus size person.Very disappointed and returning it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sneakerhead Nice, but not "slightly fitted" nor "falls at hip"
I like the fabric, loops outside give it character, and it is soft and mid-weight for some warmth. I like the design and the basic idea, but as I've been learning lately, I should only buy basic Bean items, because new styles like this tend to fit strangely, at best. It is my usual size, but skin tight, not slightly fitted, as described. Most of my things are slightly fitted and they fit me perfectly. The length comes to my mid-thigh though described as falls at hip. I regularly wear hip length items, like Ts, with no problem. This one is just way too long. Maybe it would fall at the hip of someone 6' tall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by likes2garden OK top but not what I was expecting
The color is nice-teal blue but I was expecting the fabric to be a sweatshirt like fabric. This is a little lighter weight with a looser weave to it. I am larger around the mid section and the fit is a little snug but still wearable. Overall it will work but could have been better. I have washed it once and the sleeves are about right now in length as long as it doesn't shrink any more.
