Great, great, great, great
This sweater will get you noticed
Overall I am pleased with this cardigan sweater, but with a couple of observations worth passing on. The cotton material is described as mid-weight, and it is if compared to a winter overcoat, but in the sweater category, it is clearly on the heavy side . That’s fine with me, as I’m old and live in a cool, high-altitude climate. My size is borderline between L and XL; I leaned towards L before ordering, but changed to XL when a reviewer said he had bought an L and found it too small. The cardigan button design provides a bit of latitude regarding size, so the fit is a bit loose, but comfortable, except that the sleeve length is quite long, even with the 2” cuffs folded over. It is not worth exchanging for a size L, especially as I live abroad. The varied, intricate stitched pattern in front and back makes this design both unusual and attractive, a selling point for me. Oddly, the package was delivered by the J. Peterman Co, an upscale and stylish clothing outfitter in Ohio that I had used years ago. I checked their online catalog to see if this sweater is offered; it is not. Evidently there is some kind of cooperative arrangement with the Territory Ahead company.
unique material, style
one button was loose otherwise its good
A Bad Exchange
Ordered and received this sweater. I really liked it, but it was too small so I returned it for an exchange to an XL. Unfortunately I have not never heard back or received my exchange.
I thought I had ordered this but it has not arrived, alas.
