To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I suspected this would run a little small, so I sized up one size. I’m 6’5” and typically wear a 50L or XL, slim or athletic cut suit. Length is fine. I got the 5 button version and went with a XXL. It fits perfectly in the shoulders and is a little loose in the torso, but not baggy. This is a fairly slim fit, and I’m pretty sure the XL would have been fairly snug.
The outer part of the sweater is scratchy, which was a surprise. However, the interior is like a soft fleece sweatshirt. I would describe the color as a darker grey marled fabric with charcoal or black thread poking through.
I would buy more. Great for layering. Like the high collar for outside in the wind or cold. As warm as a good heavy sweat shirt, but the collar is bonus. Soft on the skin with fleece inside. Did not find anything scratchy or itchy.
The fit is perfect, it's soft, and very warm, and the color is excellent. There is just one thing though. The big round buttons have got to go. The big buttons give it a very feminine look. Men don't like big buttons!
The sweater felt exactly how I expected, and the style is great. The color appears a bit more yellow than expected, but not dramatic. The primary downside was that the sweater smelled awful out of the package.
