I bought this on 'special' to wear as a backpack throw-away warm layer for hiking, mainly due to it being wool and very light weight. It won me over immediately. I usually hate both the color and anything with a front zipper. Woolrich really made this into a beautiful, comfortable casual sweater. I've started wearing it around with jeans and a slightly more colorful vest and I just love it! If you have very long arms, it may not be for you. It's fine on me but just barely and I'm very average in sizes. If it had been a brighter color or even sage green, I'd have given it a 5 star rating!

Wool was lightweight, which was just what I'd hoped for in a layering piece. Overall fit through the torso was great (5'4, 115 pounds, bought XS). The upper arm portion of the sleeve was incredibly loose though, which was a surprise given the flattering trim fit elsewhere in the sweater. Not enough of a problem to send it back, but will make this more of a utility sweater. Olive color was very pretty.

This has quickly become my go-to sweater. All-wool makes for a quality product. This is not a bulky, thick sweater, but I think it's just right---I don't want to start sweating as soon as I put it on. I like the long zipper. Good for whenever you need a second layer. The style is gender neutral, perhaps slightly masculine, but perfectly attractive if you're not looking for a cute feminine look. Very solid and practical.
