Mixed blessing

Reviewed by Cassandra from Vancouver, BC, Canada on Wednesday, February 1, 2012
Negatives first: neck too high, zipper is metal so it's raspy at the face. Bottom band is split by side vents which stick out a bit; not so flattering I missed that in the description). I'm tall, so it's not quite as long as I expected from the photo, but still long enough.
Positives: Nice wool, but thinner and also rougher texture than I expected.
Fit: I am 5'10" and about 160 lbs, and the fit through the body is pretty much perfect - tight enough to be warm, loose enough to be flattering.
Good news: the vents can be stitched shut if necessary, and it might even be possible, if a person is handy, to remove the collar and zipper and edge the neck differently, as the collar seems to be stitched on, not knitted on. Will explore that if I keep it as the neck does not lie nicely (as shown in photo). May or may not be worth the work, but a long fitted sweater is not that easy to find.
