It is a great item, as mentioned it would be more presentable if it had a 'V' neck or turtle neck instead of a collar. The color is really Fantatic, how about trying some other military colours example Olive Green like the militray cardigan.

I am very disappointed with this expensive Christmas gift. The wool pills after a few uses as if it were a cheap sweater. I have paid half the price for sweaters made of wool that does not pill. If you are going to buy chinese goods, you need some real quality inspection in place. Remember the tire failures and poisonous dog food incidents?

Do not clean this sweater

      Comments about Wool WWII Military Sweater:

      Enjoyed the authentic look this sweater offers. However, cold water washing and air drying resulted in shrinking. Purchased a second sweater and dry cleaned it, and it still shrunk.

      Bottom line: if you purchase this sweater, do NOT clean it.

        Comments about Wool WWII Military Sweater:

        1. In my immediate family my father and one uncle served as Canadians in the RAF during WWII. My dad followed that with 23 years in the RCAF.
        2. One uncle served in the RN during the war. Another served in the RN, the followed by the Canadian navy after that war.
        3. I spent 3 years as a Canadian kid in the RAF Air Cadets while my dad was stationed in Europe in the early 1960s.
        4. Now, I 'm a Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary crew member and the sweater compliments my CCGA uniform.

                    Comments about Wool WWII Military Sweater:

                    I'll admit that when buying online the first impression after opening the product is the most important one to me.

                    The color is seldom what I was expecting or hoping for. Next comes size. The lasting (quality) effect is always a gamble I'm willing to take.

                    This sweater from the opening is perfect for me. The color is just what I wanted. It rarely is as pictured .
                    when buying online. If you usually wear a medium: buy the large with this sweater.

                    I've read it "pills". Being ready for that I think I'll order another one of them so I'll have the same new look when this one doesn't look so good. Or maybe mine won't "pill" so bad.

                    This sweater is clearly a first-class item. The handy-work is impressively attractive. It is a true asset for cold weather. Its neutral color makes it usable with most other outwear garments. It looks and feels great to wear.

                      The simple design of our zip-front sweater hides a 500-year history of wool textiles in Scotland. The unique material—felted lamb’s-wool that’s softer and cozier than synthetic fleece, but with all the advantages of natural wool—is made by Lochaven in the heart of Scotland’s traditional textile district of Stewarton. Our grey-trimmed, felted lamb’s-wool sweater is soft and naturally water-resistant, both wind-resistant and breathable.

Farmers and fishermen, hikers and skiers have all prized Devold’s thick and hardwearing design. They’ve even outfitted pioneering Norwegian explorers including Fridtjof Nansen, who led the first inland crossing of Greenland in 1888, and Roald Amundsen, who let the first Antarctic expedition to the South Pole and was the first person to have visited both the North and South Poles.

                      This hearty forest green cardigan takes its inspiration from military-style Irish sweaters, often worn by volunteers who fought with the British in WWII. Although Ireland was neutral and relations with Britain were strained, thousands of men and women chose to join the Allied cause as members of the British Royal Army and Merchant Navy, or by working in British factories. Our contemporary version uses rich leather to enhance frequent wear points, ensuring years of rugged outdoor wear. Leather shoulders help keep expedition gear and luggage straps from slipping off. Front slash pockets add functionality and make this sweater an alternative to a jacket on milder winter days. Pure Irish wool, knit in Ireland.

                      The walking sweater is a tradition in the British Isles that dates back more than a century. This classic outdoor style uses 100% Shetland wool fiber for its warmth and natural moisture-wicking properties. Built to withstand Scotland's vigorous, often fast-changing weather, it has suede patches at shoulders and elbows for durability and reduced wear and tear from backpacks or camera straps. Crafted in a 19th-century mill on the banks of the Teviot River, deep in the Scottish Borders.

                      In the early 1900s, enterprising women living on the Aran Islands took the sweaters they had knit for generations of fisherman kin and started marketing them around the world. Today the classic cable stitches of Aran knitters are a worldwide symbol of Irish culture. The wool blend features just enough cashmere to make this winter-white cardigan luxuriously soft to the touch.

                      For more than 130 years, Dale of Norway has produced some of the finest wool sweaters and outerwear in the world. The classic Scandinavian pattern of this blue and white cardigan is inspired by 19th-century Norwegian designs from the villages of Tromsø and Vardø. These were the final ports of call for the Fram expedition that took famed explorer Fridtjof Nansen from Norway across the largely uncharted Kara Sea toward the North Pole.

                      This cozy merino wool sweater is a virtual sampler of Irish Aran knitting patterns. Each pattern symbolizes an aspect of local fishing culture: Celtic rope for Irish pride; fisherman's cable for safety on the waters; basket stitch for a plentiful catch; and diamond, the shape of a fishing net, for success. The warm wool is renowned for its extremely soft hand, providing warmth and comfort without the itch of lower-quality fibers.
