Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacob88 Guys.. The ladies love it
Women love this sweater- look at all female reviews!
They love cable knit.
They love the look of it.
And they will love the feel of it - on YOU.
So just get it. The size chart is accurate. Im a 41 chest, and the medium fits great. Its a typical LL Bean fit.
I got the Burgundy/Light Gray Heather- and its NICE.
Thank you LL bean for the great product and service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DivineMissM Nice for the ladies, too.
I own two of these. I am a female, 5'9", and have been trying to find a heavy cotton sweater that is longer than most women's sweaters. I wear an XL in women's sweaters, but decided to go with the men's XL just in case. It seemed to fit when it first arrived, but stretches with wearing. I decided to keep it as it's quite roomy for layering underneath on really cold days. Later, I ordered another oen in L. Still quite roomy.
These sweaters definitely are unisex -- no one knows I'm wearing a man's sweater.
The sleeves look good either pushed up, or with the cuff turned up.
The workmanship is excellent. These sweaters hit me just below the hip.
I haven't washed either, yet, so I can't review how well they do in the wash. Quite pleased with the purchases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MassLLBeaners Another Awesome Product
I read the reviews before purchasing and was impressed by the accolades. I too am a woman who prefers the boxy style of Men's shirts and this does not disappoint. In an effort to remain devoid of redundancy I will simply say that these sweaters (yes, I bought both colors) are gorgeous, have a great feel on and to the touch, and the perfect weight. I wish they had solid colors I would buy those up as well...worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by yourmajesty Cable Crew Striped Sweater
This cable is in keeping with the standard of the woman knit. I purchased this in the blue tones for my 2X size,barrel chested husband. He would never take the time to write a review. It is very flattering on him. He has a long torso and is plenty long enough for full coverage. Thick knit, soft sheen yarn and warm. He liked it so much that he requested the gray/burgundy. He has worn it alot. Doesn't pill. I wash cottons In slightly warm water and lay flat to dry and then give them a fluff in the dryer. It keeps its shape and size.I can't figure out why this sweater hasn't sold out on the 2 a day offering. It is a very nice sweater for the casual days. My husband is 57 if that helps. He wears it as a crew without an under layer. True to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BakingMom Nice looking sweater
I purchased this for my husband who doesn't care much for sweaters and will only wear an item of clothing if it is 100% comfortable. He really likes it and it looks good on him. He is tall and the sleeves are long enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hermitsunite Really nice sweater!
I was a bit hesitant about buying this sweater because it cannot be machine dried. But I'm glad I went ahead and bought it because it really is a great-looking sweater. It's very warm and comfortable and appears to be well-made. Like other reviewers here, I'm a woman, but I prefer the cut/fit/style of many of LL Bean's Mens' offerings. I'm 5 ft 7" and weigh approximately 138 pounds. The Medium in this sweater fit me in the "roomy" way I like my sweaters to fit. Even though I'm the 3rd reviewer and all of us are women, make no mistake: This sweater will look amazing on a man.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beek7 I love this sweater
I will be wearing this sweater often. It is warm and comfortable and looks great. I am a female, but I prefer the cut of men's sweaters, especially the neckline.
