Bulky under the arms, scratchy wool
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Large
I bought this sweater and one other Dale of Norway sweater, both size Large, at the same time. I'm a fairly tall guy of medium build with a normal BMI. I wear a size 42 inch suit. The Dale of Norway size chart here indicates that size Large is appropriate for Chest 41in, so I chose Large knowing that some sweaters do run big. I received the sweater and tried it on, and it is far too big and bulky, especially as noted by one other reviewer in the underarms where multiple seams meet (see photo). It is not tailored for a normal V-shaped body frame at all either. The wool itself is uncomfortable and itchy/scratchy, unlike the other Dale of Norway sweater I bought and love! I am not sure I'd want to be celebrating my 140th Anniversary with such an uncomfortable garment. I am very disappointed in this sweater and will be returning it.
