"Beware!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I ordered a large, which is the size I wear in most garments - additionally considering various other reviews noting that this item runs small. However, I found this item to be considerably too large for me, blousy in fact, and more styled for a womans body than a mans. I also noted that the yarn is very lightweight, and the knots are not very tightly woven. Overall, It was not the size or quality I expected. Unfortunately, I must inform you that this retailer will NOT refund the cost of the shipping I spent to receive it, and they will NOT refund the cost of the shipping to return it (because, according to their customer service rep, This is not our fault). Therefore, I spent $25 in total shipping to get, well...nothing. A WORD OF CAUTION: If you buy clothing from this retailer, you better be happy with whatever you get, because they do not take responsibility for shipping and handling costs at either end. I can confidently say that, with so many other online retailers offering free shipping and hassle-free returns, I will definitely NOT be ordering from them again.

"Bad Button-holes, of all things"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Sorry to be negative about this, but the buttonholes are too small for this to button properly, and Im returning it. This was also true for the similar sweater, and I was hoping that issue would have been corrected by now. Sorry, but a decent value otherwise. Like so readily corrected!

"Very handsome sweater"

Just received vest number two. My husband wears it year around almost everyday. It washes beautifully in cool water and Orvis soap. The button holes could be a bit firmer as in time they stretch out. A great comfortable sweater.

"Christmas Gift of Love"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This was a fabulous purchase and my husband looks gorgeous in it. I couldnt have been happier. I gave it to him at Christmas and he got teary-eyed when he opened it. Shocked me, but I was thrilled he was so moved by the gift. Please, if you want to give the perfect gift to boyfriend or husband . . . you should choose this. Makes an ordinary man into a handsome gentleman in the time it takes to put it on. I even ordered it in a different color the next Christmas!
