    I got the black. It has has zip hand pockets. The weave is great -- dense and tight. The fit is great. I am 6'2" and 165 pounds. The medium fits very well. I have received several compliments when wearing this sweater.

    Cut was just a little short for a 6’2” skinny man. Otherwise the sweater was beautifully made and very stylish.

    This sweater was a great find. Never tried this brand before but I bought this wool zip up sweater.

    The sweater is made from a very soft, almost cotton feel, marino wool. Its a substantial weight with solid zippers. This will be great for fall/spring as an outer layer, or as a mid-layer for colder days.

    It is a somewhat sporty, casual look, but with the materials it is a clear step up from the typical materials found in some sporty lines such as NorthFace. I wear somewhere between a 38 and a 40 jacket and the small size fit nicely if you like a close to the body cut. If you prefer a little looser fit, keep in mind more European cuts are meant to be worn tighter so order a size up if you don't like that.

    Black sweater has gray zipper, not green as in the picture. Nice steel pull. Fit is trim but not tight. I’m skinny at 6’ 150 lbs and small fit perfectly. Sleeves are not baggy and long enough for my 35” sleeve length. It’s a beautiful classic sweater with a tailored look.

    This sweater is typical of Ivanhoe's quality, just top notch. Its a slimmer fit which is to be expected from a European manufacturer. At 6 feet and 200 lbs the XL fits nicely. The only issue is it wasn't what I ordered. I thought I was getting the black with green/yellow trim and the pocket on the upper arm. I got black with no trim and no pocket. I'm keeping it anyway due to the quality, but that might be more important to some.

    The knitting is what makes this sweater stands out. Feel great and regular body temporary and nice snug fit.
