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?

      Comments about Wool WWII Military Sweater:

      I noted a friend who runs a coffee shop, lugging in supplies on a cold, rainy day. He was soaked and cold by the time he finished. I have had heavy wool sweaters for similar purposes for decades and decided to buy the Natl Geo one for him. We 'sized' him according to some similar sweaters I have. When the sweater arrived, it turned out to be too big. I hadn't paid attention to the fact that various manufacturers follow different sizing standards.

      Bottom line: the replacement sweater fit fine and my friend was delighted.

        Bought this sweater for cold weather motorcycle riding under jacket, love it and ordered another one so won't be left out between cleanings. Collar is great because can warm ears and keep wind off neck, as a man of few means these purchases were well afforded and quality to be proud of.

                    The color was just as pictured in the catalog and it is warm. But the collar was too large (looked more like a tall cowl-neck sweater) and was too stiff. If you like that look - this is for you. Also, the medium size seems closer to a large than not. Wasn't for me -- so I sent it back. I had to follow-up on the refund because of the slow processing, but the telepohone customer service rep was apologetic and very helpful in getting the refund completed.
