great casual sweater

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jen from Pacific Palisades, CA on Saturday, February 21, 2009
I wanted a sweater to keep at the office for when it gets cold in there. This sweater it just what I needed: warm yet suitably styled for the office. This sweater has also served me well as a jacket in the chilly weather. This sweater is heavy enough to be really warm, but because the cut is somewhat tailored and form-fitting, it doesn't feel like I'm drowning in wool or overwhelmed by something huge. (I am small-framed and 5'4", and the small fits me great.) It's a chunky knit, for sure, but flexible and supple, so that it's not constricting. I like that the collar can be buttoned up to make a "turtleneck" to protect from drafts, or can be left down like a regular tailored collar. I found the wool to be soft and non-scratching. I got the wine color, and it's quite pretty. Some reviews noted an unfinished collar. The collar on mine was fine: no fancy detailing there or anything, but it's not like there were lose threads. Also, I think the big brown buttons suit the style. I'm really happy with this purchase.
