Beautiful sweater

Verified Buyer Reviewed by bar_none from Carlsbad, CA on Tuesday, May 22, 2012
Overall, an excellent sweater. I have an tall, athletic build and have trouble finding shoulder sleeve length combinations that aren't hugely oversized in the waste. This sweater is well-proportioned for my build. I didn't like the black part of the melange at first, but after washing the sweater, I like the effect. It's subtle and prevents the claret color from being overbearing. I almost returned this sweater because the odor was awful: kind of a combination of burnt rubber and wet wool. I pre-soaked, then washed with an odor remover and detergent, and now the sweater looks, smells and feels wonderful. The only other thing to note is the collars which are generous without being dated. Some might find them too big. I think they're just right.
