"Bad Button-holes, of all things"

Sorry to be negative about this, but the buttonholes are too small for this to button properly, and I'm returning it. This was also true for the similar sweater, and I was hoping that issue would have been corrected by now. Sorry, but a decent value otherwise. Like so readily corrected!

"Beware!"

I ordered a large, which is the size I wear in most garments - additionally considering various other reviews noting that this item runs small. However, I found this item to be considerably too large for me, "blousy" in fact, and more styled for a woman's body than a man's. I also noted that the yarn is very lightweight, and the knots are not very tightly woven. Overall, It was not the size or quality I expected. Unfortunately, I must inform you that this retailer will NOT refund the cost of the shipping I spent to receive it, and they will NOT refund the cost of the shipping to return it (because, according to their customer service rep, "This is not our fault"). Therefore, I spent $25 in total shipping to get, well...nothing. A WORD OF CAUTION: If you buy clothing from this retailer, you better be happy with whatever you get, because they do not take responsibility for "shipping and handling" costs at either end. I can confidently say that, with so many other online retailers offering free shipping and hassle-free returns, I will definitely NOT be ordering from them again.

"Wonderful wool"

This item came on time. It is the perfect classical sweater vest for my father. craftsmanship was excellent and he is really please about having a button down instead of one you pull on over the head. I recommend it highly.

"Nice sweater vest"

Really love the sweater. However when I tried it on I noticed it had a hole in it. Instead of hassling with the return process my wife just sewed it up.

"Beautiful but way too small to be XXL"

The vest is beautifully made but if you are expecting a XXL to be large enough then it won't be with this vest. It is more a Large size than XXL. Well,,, guess my fat but's gotta start running LOL! An inspiration to lose the extra pounds by next winter, fall.

"Slim? No need to size up."

Since other reviewers said the sizing was small, I ordered an XXL for my slim spouse who usually wears an L (42). He could wear this XXL as a dress! It's going back and I'm ordering his normal size. It's a beautiful garment in a loose knit that will provide a gentle warmth.

"Beautiful but poorly sized"

XXL was 45 inches at the chest. That's a large, not an XXL.

"Very handsome sweater"

Just received vest number two. My husband wears it year around almost everyday. It washes beautifully in cool water and Orvis soap. The button holes could be a bit firmer as in time they stretch out. A great comfortable sweater.
