This sweater was a lot heavier and fuzzier than I expected based on the picture. I agree with the other reviewers that the fit is a little boxy and it runs a bit small. I usually wear an XS in JCrew sweaters (5'4", 106 lbs, 30D) but ordered the S in this sweater based on the comments of others. The size S is fine (sleeves aren't too long). The colors (cream, brown, gray) are beautiful and the quality is great. It is Very Warm and I'll only be able to wear it on the coldest of New England days. The only thing I don't care for is the shedding. It sheds more than my dog...and that's saying something! If you're planning on pairing this with dark wool pants or cords, forget it! It will only work with blue jeans or leather pants because of the shedding. You'll also need to think about what coat/jacket you put over it. Also, plan to wear it with a turtleneck underneath. It's very itchy. Your turtleneck will be covered with the "hair" afterward.

This is a beautiful sweater, but it's very bulky and extra warm. Maybe a bit too warm for anything but the coldest weather. I ordered a medium which is normally my size but had to return it for a large. I'm happy with this sweater as it it made with high quality yarn and has a nice pattern and color. I have found though that I need to wear a shirt under this sweater because it can be itchy. I really don't need my jacket when I wear this sweater!

Great sweater but not a relaxed fit. Order up a size for a regular fit.

I'm still trying to decide if I like this sweater....I sized up a size from my normal size medium as other reviews suggested, however that made the fit very "over-sized". I really think a medium would have been a better fit for me. I bought it final sale, so not able to return in order to try the medium. I bought the brown version. Looks great with black pixie pants and jeans.
On the pro side, the knit is beautiful. Colors are bright and vivid. It is a very warm sweater--I did find it to be itchy, so I will wear a long sleeve tee under the sweater. It does shed, but not terribly. Overall, I am pleased with this purchase and would recommend it to others.

I was really happy when I saw this sweater go on sale and ordered it right away. Unfortunately when I got it and tired it on I was disappointed. The is was not relaxed at all. It was short and boxy which ends up making you look larger. Sad to say it but it's going back.
