Details

Part of standard-issue military wear during WWII, sweaters like this wool pullover were popular among servicemen for comfort, durability, and easy pullover warmth. The shawl-collar style buttons up to cut the cold just as it did onboard aircraft carriers in the '40s. Cotton twill canvas-reinforced elbows add durability.

"Perfect Casual Sweater"

It's fantastic, and just as advertised! I have to believe that it's almost a perfect match to the WWII Military Sweater. It fits perfectly, and I really love the look and feel. I can wear it with jeans (super casual) or with a less casual pair of slacks that coordinate with it. Most of all, I love its warmth while still being quite stylish. A perfect addition to my wardrobe.

"Very great acquisition."

This sweater is clearly a first-class item. The handy-work is impressively attractive. It is a true asset for cold weather. Its neutral color makes it usable with most other outwear garments. It looks and feels great to wear.

"Very comfortable"

My wife bought me one of these sweaters for last Christmas. I loved it. But she accidentally washed and DRIED it. It shrunk to her size. I liked it so well I bought another as soon as it was available.

"In rainy and chilly weather, nothing beats wool"

I noted a friend who runs a coffee shop, lugging in supplies on a cold, rainy day. He was soaked and cold by the time he finished. I have had heavy wool sweaters for similar purposes for decades and decided to buy the Natl Geo one for him. We 'sized' him according to some similar sweaters I have. When the sweater arrived, it turned out to be too big. I hadn't paid attention to the fact that various manufacturers follow different sizing standards. Bottom line: the replacement sweater fit fine and my friend was delighted.

"First Impression"

I'll admit that when buying online the first impression after opening the product is the most important one to me. The color is seldom what I was expecting or hoping for. Next comes size. The lasting (quality) effect is always a gamble I'm willing to take. This sweater from the opening is perfect for me. The color is just what I wanted. It rarely is as pictured . when buying online. If you usually wear a medium: buy the large with this sweater. I've read it "pills". Being ready for that I think I'll order another one of them so I'll have the same new look when this one doesn't look so good. Or maybe mine won't "pill" so bad.

"Beautiful Sweater"

These are world class sweaters. However, the description says that a medium fits a 38 - 40 chest size. I completely disagree. I received this as a gift and it is HUGE!!! The medium looks like a XXXL. I am 5'7" tall, weigh 155 lbs. I wear a 38" chest size. The arm length on this sweater was at least 6" too long and the overall length went down to my mid thighs. HONESTLY, WHY DOESN'T NAT GEO CARRY SMALL SIZES TOO? There are some people in this world who are actually not obese or freakishly tall.

"would be better looking with a"V" neck"

It is a great item, as mentioned it would be more presentable if it had a 'V' neck or turtle neck instead of a collar. The color is really Fantatic, how about trying some other military colours example Olive Green like the militray cardigan.

"Just ordered another one"

Bought this sweater for cold weather motorcycle riding under jacket, love it and ordered another one so won't be left out between cleanings. Collar is great because can warm ears and keep wind off neck, as a man of few means these purchases were well afforded and quality to be proud of.

"Do not clean this sweater"

Enjoyed the authentic look this sweater offers. However, cold water washing and air drying resulted in shrinking. Purchased a second sweater and dry cleaned it, and it still shrunk. Bottom line: if you purchase this sweater, do NOT clean it.

"My favorite sweater"

With temps. below 0 and -20's windchill this sweater is a lifesaver. I liked mine so much I got one for my son. This sweater is large. I'm a L to XL, but had to go with a M. It fit perfect. Both the olive and navy blue are attractive. It is sturdy enough for any outdoor job or activity yet nice enough for a dinner date. Love this sweater!!

"Good color, collar too big and still"

The color was just as pictured in the catalog and it is warm. But the collar was too large (looked more like a tall cowl-neck sweater) and was too stiff. If you like that look - this is for you. Also, the medium size seems closer to a large than not. Wasn't for me -- so I sent it back. I had to follow-up on the refund because of the slow processing, but the telepohone customer service rep was apologetic and very helpful in getting the refund completed.

"Excellent Reproduction, Buy it now!"

I wanted a World War II reproduction Infantry sweater that was well-made, soft, comfortable and long lasting. Easy to care for and one I could wear everyday, and this was it! Excellent price, I have looked all over the web, this sweater will not disappoint you. Buy it while you can, it could go away easily.

"PositiveWWII Military Sweater evaluation"

1. In my immediate family my father and one uncle served as Canadians in the RAF during WWII. My dad followed that with 23 years in the RCAF. 2. One uncle served in the RN during the war. Another served in the RN, the followed by the Canadian navy after that war. 3. I spent 3 years as a Canadian kid in the RAF Air Cadets while my dad was stationed in Europe in the early 1960s. 4. Now, I 'm a Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary crew member and the sweater compliments my CCGA uniform.

"Was Expecting Better"

Count me as another person whose sweater has fabric pills. I was quote disappointed to see it happen, ad I would expect Nat Geo to offer better quality. If it wadn't for the pills it would be a wonderful sweater, tjough I'm not a big fan of the army green color. Unfortunately, the condition it is in prevents me from wearing it ouside with no jacket. At least Until I find the time to remove the pills.

"Cheap wool!"

I am very disappointed with this expensive Christmas gift. The wool pills after a few uses as if it were a cheap sweater. I have paid half the price for sweaters made of wool that does not pill. If you are going to buy chinese goods, you need some real quality inspection in place. Remember the tire failures and poisonous dog food incidents?
