Quite pleased with this sweater. I'm 6ft tall, 175 lbs and wear shirts with 34/35" sleeve length. This sweater fits closely. Arms are good length, waist JUST long enough. Will probably get better if it stretches a bit over time. Neck also fits closer than other zip mock necks I've worn, essentially reducing the effective zipper length. Good color and wool quality.

I didn't really expect what I got when I opened the box. This sweater is very smooth, almost like a silky material, and has a slight sheen. It is very classy, and worked well at a professional conference to wear over a button-up shirt. When it gets much, much older, I'll use it as my original intent...as a layer for hiking/hunting.
My only complaint is that the length is on the average to shorter side, and I have a long torso (28").

Ordered 1 then ordered 4 more in different colors including 2 for my son; perfect for office on days not wearing a suit, also good w jeans, cords; nice fabric, fir and workmanship; true sizing; have had good experiences with this brand over the years

This is a well made, well designed sweater that fits right and hence is quite comfortable. My only quibble, and it is just that, is that it is a bit light for a turtleneck. I prefer a little bit more warmth or substance to a turtleneck.

A nice, light, good-looking merino wool zip-T sweater. Toscano sweaters are usually made in Italy and this one's made in Tunisia. For some reason, it feels slightly itchier than what I normally expect from Toscano merino wool products. It has the European fit, of course — I'm normally an American XL, but I bought the 2XL and the fit is quite nice. Perhaps when I wash it, it will lose some of the itch. Could be the dye?

My first time ordering this brand. Ordered the zip neck sweater in blue and the button down collar in gray. Returned both. While the material is nice, the fit is definitely NOT for men with slim or athletic builds. The fit was fine in the arms and shoulders but much too baggy around the midsection and waist. Apparently, they measured 50-year-old men with beer bellies when they designed these. Too bad because the zip neck sweater had potential. Will skip this brand from here on out.

I think Toscano makes some of the softest, itch-free merino wool sweaters available, and this one is no exception. It's fairly lightweight, but well-made. If you are an American XL and don't like the ultra-tight European fit, then I'd order the 2xl, which I did. The 2xl fit is great for me and I love the sweater.
