    Great Sweater - 1/17/2014

    This sweater is great! It was a gift for my husband and he is always looking for something slightly different. This sweater fits the criteria and is weighty, comfortable and looks great on! The cut and style is terrific. Thanks for a great sweater!

    Great sweater. Runs large though. I normally wear a large but I'm returning for a medium.

    This sweater is super cool. Very comfortable and great look. I had 4 compliments the first time I wore the sweater. Only drawback I see is that the material will snag, this is minor. I am very pleased with my purchase and yes the sweater will keep you warm and cozy.

    Nice but Returned - 2/15/2013

    This is a well designed sweater (I gave it 5 stars,) that as it turned out was just not right for me (so I did not "recommend it to a friend" and have in fact returned it). I purchased it in Navy thinking the color would be darker - it is in fact closer to a deep denim blue that would be just right for someone looking for a more casual and faded feeling sweater. I think it would've been more to my taste in either boiled or worsted wool with a denser knit and a darker true Navy color. The button detailing at the front of the shawl collar has the potential to be a nice touch - however it could've had slightly smaller and darker buttons for a more integrated less aggressive look. Good but not for me.
