Overall it is very warm and not that itchy and a nice non-polyester layer for outdoor activities, or just around the office or house.
I ended up keeping this sweater, however I agree with other comments here. The fit is tight on the hips/but and because it is a longer sweater it looks a bit odd. It is loose on the waist.

I am so glad I ordered this after reading the reviews. I did size up and it fits perfectly. The style is updated with a lower slung tie that hits the top of the hips and a large hood that drapes well. The quality of the merino is sumptuous similar to smartwool or icebreaker merino. The value of this when purchased on sale is incredible. Even if I had ordered the small I would have kept it, it just would have been very tight across the hips, however because the merino weave is so thick, and the buttons are large, it doesn't split apart like cheaper sweater coats. You won't be sorry with this purchase. Fyi, I am a 6-8 and usually a small in tops, sometime a medium.

I am 5"3", 120 and the S fits snug. I agree with the other reviewers, it fits snug in the hips and butt. I actually have to leave the bottom button unbuttoned because I've got a booty but the sweater looks great like that. It's really nice material, breaths well as you would expect from merino. It is also much more flattering than in the pic. There is room in the neck, shoulders, and upper arms so it's not super form fitting in that area of the sweater.

Upon opening I was excited because the weight of this sweater is mid to heavy...could easily be a jacket. However, the hips ran way too narrow for me. I'm 5'6' 125lb size 8 and ordered a medium. I wouldn't say my hips are wide but this ran way to narrow for my taste (I did try it on over a sweater). Returning this one.

I've been eyeing this sweater for a while. I finally ordered it, and I like the cozy wool fleece fabric so much that I will keep it, even though it will really be only for very casual wear. It's cut much narrower through the hips than through the chest, a problem that is mitigated by the belt, which allows you to cinch the waist. Nice big hood.

This sweather is extremely versatile and classicly stylish.I pair it with jeans as well as tailored pants. I typically wear a size 6 and ordered the grey and black both in small which fit great, except for the hips. Returned and exchanged for 2 mediums which still fit close over the hips but are workable. Quality merino wool, good weight for spring weather and nice buttons. Very pleased with my purchase. Customer service was excellent. I actually spoke with a human being. Amazing!

Great quality sweater that looks much better on than in the photo! Be aware, however, that if you're petite like I am (5'2" and 105 lbs. and I got the XS), it doesn't look good buttoned since it's made for someone with a longer torso, but it looks great unbuttoned. Liked the gray so much that I ordered the black one, too!
