NOT an underlayer -
By: PondHouse from Ranger, GA
This turtleneck sweater was a bit of a surprise. I had assumed it would be a thin sweater to wear layered under shirts. Instead, this is a very thick, bulky cotton knit, though not heavy because it is cotton. It is very much a stand alone piece. While it does not serve the intended purpose, it did fill in a sweater "need" in my husband's closet. It looks great over jeans! Just know this is a REAL sweater!
Excellent sweater -
The quality and the fit are great. Wears and travels well...very easy to care for...

Was given gift certificate by my son and had to select item. I choose the sweater based on its looks from catelogue. Upon receipt I was quite pleased. It not only looked great it fit perfectly and felt great as well. Couldn't be more pleased
Too Big. -
The turtleneck is a nice color I got the green one and the shaker stitch is bulky but very breathable. It is not so bulky that you can not wear it indoors comfortably which is nice but unfortunately the sweater is extremely large like about a size or two. I ordered the medium which is the size I normally get, followed the guidelines posted on the website and I can not even keep the sleeves up when I roll them up and it just sags a lot. I washed it in hot water and stuck it in the dryer to see if I could get and shrinkage but nothing! Unfortunately they for some odd reason they do not have a small size so too all people on the fence I would recommend against purchasing it if you are a medium or of course a small. I will be contacting Orvis shortly about my refund since I cannot exchange it for the non-exsistant small which is an extreme frustration. If you can find a retailer also I would strongly urge you to try it one. The one closest to me did not carry it which only further added to my agitation when I realized the medium was much too large.
Classy Turtleneck -
By: BobWviaCapeCod from Cape Cod MA
Excellent quality garment - terrific fit and very smart looking too. Whether for casual or dress-up with a sportcoat this turtleneck sweater really fits the bill. FYI - this is the second turtleneck I've purchased from ORVIS in the past 2 weeks so please keep offering them because I can see myself ordering more of them in future.
Good Looking But. . . -
By: thmnyc from NY, NY
While I really like the look of this turtleneck, it began to lose its shape during the first wearing and became very baggy. The neck became quite wide and floppy, the sleeves elongated and I had to roll them up. Finally the body of the sweater sagged so much it was practically down to my knees. I wouldn't recommend this item.
Good quality but color is not quite as promised -
My husband has a navy blue Orvis turtle neck that has lasted years. He asked for a yellow one and I was excited to find this one on the website. However, the yellow color is more of a soft gold or a honey color than yellow. Returning it for green.

Feels good on and different than ordinary turtlenecks
Substantial Wardrobe Staple -
By: MrChris from Gallupville, NY
Nicely made, chunky sweater. Not so heavy that it is too much indoors, not so light that it needs a significant layer underneath during the really cold days. Turtlenecks are simply not in the stores this year and I don't get that...but Orvis came through. Again. I have high hopes for this over time and over many washings. I buy what lasts and what survives all trendiness. I often buy Orvis.
Very disappointing -
Upon receipt of the Turtleneck Sweater my expectations were high. ORVIS looks like a high-end type of clothing company. I always, comfortably wear a size Medium for all sweaters, shirts, T's, etc... sometimes I also get into a "Small", depending on the manufacturer. I like the material and the design of the "Shaker-Stitch"; however, after one washing, the sweater has stretched out to a very large size. It almost looks like a "tent" on me now...waaaay too big. I realize I should have gotten a Small, but the small size was not offered in the catalog. I have no choice but to give this item away to one of my "larger" guy-friends. I am very disappointed.
