The material I think is rather thin for being labeled "Medium Weight", but not when compared to RL/Polo sweaters. Depends upon how u wear the sweater. Take ur regular size if w T shirt, &/or under sports coat. Go up next size if dress shirt, turtle neck, for casual wear. Washing IS CAKE!! TURN INSIDE OUT, use Woolite &/or baby shampoo, & cold water on the DELICATE CYCLE. Don't worry about what kind of machine it is ie: front load or swivel. REALLY. When done, roll up in a dry towel to get excess water out. DON'T WRING GARMENT. Sweater should smell like a wet dog if all soap is out. Then place away from heat & sunlight on another dry towel. I've found after washing fibers are softer & warmer. REALLY. Johnstons of Elgin is the BEST CASHMERE IN THE WORLD when properly washed & properly cared for. You can HAND WASH for same result- I've done both & it just doesn't make that noticeable of a difference. When these go on sale @ STP I'll buy a color I don't have. I never buy from retail stores cause they'd charge $500-750 for these! i.e.: Wingtip & Hansens, RL. I've noticed the thickness keeps getting thinner though- What is a shortage of sheep occurring in Scotland? I can't find a decent sweater that's affordable that's Made in USA, & St. Croix never has cashmere, only merino.

I gave this sweater to my husband for Christmas. I chose the color sage heather and it's wonderful on him. The sweater runs a tad small and I took advice from other reviewers and ordered up one size. It fits perfectly and although nice and warm, he can wear it comfortably in his office. Cashmere from Scotland gets better when laundered by hand. My guy looks terrific!
Some of the colors were sized in numeric chests sizes and some of the colors were sized in alpha sizes. So if your chest size is a 44 the colors that are numeric sized you would order a 44. If the color is alpha sized order a large.

“What's the ply on this sweater? I am looking for a tightly woven, thicker cashmere sweater for my husband. I am tempted to try this one, but I hate the hassle of returns. Can you tell me if this sweater is more on the thinner or thicker side?|Thanks so much. |also, would this sweater qualify for 25% off using dealflyer sign-up? Thanks, again.”
