    Bought this as a v-day gift for my husband, and he was very happy with it overall! He did comment that the suede tab looked slightly strange when the sweater was completely buttoned up, but otherwise, the sweater is very warm and nicely colored.

    A little roomy, but such is most things on me. The sweater itself is gorgeous and handsome. My fiancé loves this one.

    Not only a quality donegal but also stylish - 2/11/2014
    By: from Scottsdale, AZ

    Winters in Canada are brutal and a warm sweater is mandatory. I'd been watching this donegal sweater go by in the catalogues I receive but was always hesitating because of my uncertainty in sizing. Lo and behold I spent this terrible winter in Arizona and when I arrived I immediately set off for the Scottsdale Orvis store. Alas, they didn't have my size nor colour. But "Hey, that's no problem" said one of the sales ladies named Linda. "I'll find out where we can get you one". She proceeded on the computer, made a couple of phone calls, located my sweater and arranged to have one my size and colour shipped to my Arizona address. I was very impressed by that service. So the sweater arrives 5 days later and it fits great, is soft and warm but better yet, it is very stylish. Very cool. It makes me look great. ( now this doesn't happen all the time ) I'm very appreciative of the service I received and glad I found that store. I only wish there was an Orvis in Winnipeg. The quality and stylish clothing would be very popular there.

    Not up to expectations - 2/7/2014
    By: from Chicago

    It was clear that this sweater would not hold its shape. Feels nice, but I suspect it would stretch and hang after a few wearings. I returned it.....not up to my Orvis expectations. I expect a much higher quality product from Orvis.

    Great sweater, highly recommended - 1/14/2014
    By: from Shennandoah Valley

    I bought this as a gift for myself, the quality and weight are top-notch, it's not itchy to wear on bare skin, not as soft and plush as my pure cashmere sweaters but very comfortable none the less. Highly recommended as either a treat for yourself or a gift.

    Terrific Sweater!! - 1/7/2014
    By: from New Hampshire

    This sweater exactly what I was looking for. It's warm AND comfortable. Wife says it looks "Very sexy"! Not scratchy like pure wool, the cashmere buffers that nicely. I'm glad I got the XL, so if you are at the top of the range for one size, I would suggest going up. Got it just in time for the Polar Vortex hitting New England!!

    I live in So Cal. And we have had a very warm spell unlike most of the country. When I opened the package , I immediately tried it own and could tell it was something. The fit was perfect, very nice drape and smooth and soft. I waited until very early morning to walk around when it was much cooler and with a tee shirt and this sweater and I was unbelievably comfortable in the mid 40 degree weather. I just wanted to hang out in my new sweater. Can't wait for my trip to Denver in a few weeks.

    Beautiful sweater - 1/6/2014
    By: from Minneapolis, MN

    I ordered the green version of this sweater. It didn't disappoint. Even though it was a bit pricy, this is a soft, rich-looking sweater that will keep you warm, while making you look like a million bucks. Nice fit and great quality.
