So Warm and Professional

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: Runs small

Love that it is practical but can also be paired with a button-up shirt for a professional look. This is so warm. I usually wear a medium, but bought a large to make it less fitted and allow for layers.

Runs small

If you like your clothes tight, this is for you. Shoulders and arms were too tight. Everything else seemed fine. Feels good and looks good. Go one size up if you want more mobility. Had to return it.

Its even better

Great addition to the Patagonia Better Sweater line. With a slimmer fit and the 3/4 zip, it is the perfect casual layer for a brisk fall day, or when the office air conditioner is on full blast. I really love how the sides are a thinner product to reduce the classic sweater bulk, without losing much warmth from the original.
