Nice simple long sweater

Reviewed by Canadian from Vancouver, BC, Canada on Tuesday, February 1, 2011
I find this sweater pretty much perfect, a much nicer sweater than shown in the picture. I am 5'10" and 150 lbs, with broad shoulders, and ordered the medium because other Ivanhoe products in Large from STP fit a bit loose in the body. This M is a nice close fit through the body and sleeves yet the shoulders still fit pretty well. This might not work as well if I were bigger in the bust, but I'm not :-)

Sleeve length is perfect. Pockets are at a nice height, not too high as is often the case for me. The "white" colour is actually a cream/off-white, a very nice shade as neutrals go (I'm not a beige girl! but I am a bit tired of black and look hideous in olive. I thought I might dye this if it was too dull, but the colour is quite pretty.)

The fabric is a fine knit that is brushed/boiled and thus quite dense, but not bulky. Neck is high and stiff when zipped up, but not tight, and quite willing to lay flat if left unzipped. I honestly do not have any complaints, and have even ordered a second one (in black).
  • Best Uses: Indoor wear, Layering
  • Cons: Shoulders a bit narrow
  • Pros: Close fitting, Long waisted, Nice thick fabric, Useful pockets
  • Sizing: Feels true to size
  • Sleeve Length: Feels true to length
