Closeouts. The ever-popular hoodie gets a fitted, uptown treatment in Woolrich's Navigator cardigan sweater, knit from "overwashed" merino wool (a bit like boiled but softer and looser) with slimming rib-knit at side panels, sleeves and back.
I loved this sweater so much that I wore it too much, perhaps. The seams started coming apart after a year, and I had to resew all the seams by now. The zipper also gets stuck after a few months. It is soft and versatile, but the quality is so so.

The description of this sweater is dead-on. The "overwashed" wool is wonderful ... lightweight and soft yet the weave is dense making it very warm without being bulky. Very high-quality. I'm not one for bold colors, especially red, but this is absolutely gorgeous; deep and rich. I'm 5'9" with a long but medium build. I very often need a size LG in tops, sweaters and jackets to accommodate my shoulders and arm-length yet really need a MED in my chest and waist. Having read the other reviews and seeing that it's described as "fitted" I gambled on the MED and it's absolutely perfect !! It fits me exactly as shown on the model in the picture; fitted with sleeves that actually cover my wrists! This is one of the best purchases I've made in a long, long time.

I think this would look good on someone with muscular arms, but I just don't have that. The material is soft and buttery, which is why I got it, so I will keep it. But the color is not as bright red as pictured (toned down red), so I wear it to work sometimes. I am thinking of wearing it for hiking over my other sweaters or baselayers since this hoodie is really too large for me. I got xs and am 5'4" 115 lbs. Usually, xs works perfectly well, but this hoodie's arms are just too wide. But I can see how it would look good on those with bulkier arms, so I can't say I won't suggest it to my friends.

This stylish sweater is really pretty. I bought it because I get really cold in the winter and wool really helps to cut the chill. It fits great, not too bulky. The hood makes it not very dressy so I won't be wearing it to work, but it's perfect for the weekends. The color is bright and the cable detail is beautiful.

This was just a bit too tight for me (sigh) so I am sending it back. However, if it fit, I would have gladly kept it as it is something you will wear a lot to dress up your "dress down" days. Non-itchy, flattering and very light. I wish it came in plus sizes (sigh again).
