Men's Bean's Classic Ragg Wool Sweater, Crewneck is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 61.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I’m 71, 6 ft, around 225lbs kinda broad in the shoulders, fairly long arms and a little bit of a gut. With regular size shirts, T’s and sweaters they always ride up at or above the belt line which I detest. So I usually order the tall size to give my ample belly a little room. This sweater fits perfect. Long but not too long, sleeves have a little extra in case you have longer than 35 inches or otherwise big guns. Thinking of ordering another in charcoal. The one thing you need to do with these kind of sweaters is keep them OUT of the dryer. Hang them across something or use your wife’s sweater rack to dry. Run them through a dryer and it will be ruined. Trust me on this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looking forward to many years of wear! Yes, it has a smell. It smells like wool! If you can't handle that or be patient enough for it to dissipate like all wool things, then go buy a cheap polyester sweater at Target. This is a quality made wool sweater and I look forward to many years of use. The tall option is what led me here. I'm rather lean and lanky, so the Medium Tall fits perfectly. For reference, I usually wear slim fit dress shirts in 16.5" x 36" and a 43XL jackets/coats. Only 4 stars now because this is brand new and I do not know how durable it is. With that being said, I have no reason to suspect issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much too large! My husband has been wearing Bean's ragg wool sweaters for years. He has always worn a large. I checked each of the 4 current sweaters he has and they are all large. So I ordered a large. It is gigantic! At least 4 inches wider than his other sweaters, longer, arms longer, etc. I am sending it back for a medium, which I hope is still not too large. Where is the consistency year to year???

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good for look but not for function I purchased this sweater as I love to spend time outside in the colder months of the year, and thought that this would be a great, functional item to keep me warm. In terms of appearance, the sweater is absolutely perfect. However, this past weekend I spend about 3 hours outside in temperatures in the low 50s, and this sweater did next to nothing to cut the breeze, or to maintain heat. Long story short, if you are looking for a look this is the sweater for you, if you are looking for an item to keep you warm while outside you may want to look elsewhere.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It met an untimely end. My other ragg wool sweaters have NEVER smelled like this. I thought if I put it through the wash it might kill the smell...uh...I don't recommend that...fuzz went all over the washing machine. I gave up and threw it out. I want to order another ragg wool sweater but I'm worried it could smell the same. Who ever heard of a sweater 'smelling'??? I've never had this problem, from LL Bean, before. It was unfortunate. The fit was too large and too long for a medium, I was wondering if I had gotten a Tall by mistake, but it was a Regular. I would suggest ordering down a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A++ but... Bought XL Tall for my tall & thin body with 36” arms. Awesome look & quality but body was huge and its bottom edge extended 3 or 4 inches below the bottom edge of my lengthy down jacket. Sleeves were perfect, extending an inch or two below my wrists. Shoulder “drops” were perfect, neither too snug nor too droopy off my shoulder edges. Exchanged for Large Tall. A++ solution! Body roomy but not baggy. Bottom edge aligns with lengthy down jacket. Sleeves & shoulder drops perfect, almost identical to XLTall. LOVING this sweater every Chicago night!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sweater It's a great sweater -- warm, soft, and comfortable. Thick but not too thick. The smell is not chemical, as previous commenter complained. It smells like a lambswool sweater ought to smell. If it's too strong for you at first, give it a few days in the fresh air. Very much recommend this well made, good looking sweater and very much hope L.L. Bean puts out even more classic styles like this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this product When I took this sweater out of the mailing package, I was hit by a strong chemical odor. I let the sweater air out for a day, but to no avail. It is manufactured in China and is clearly treated with incredibly strong and pungent chemicals. I put the sweater on, but could wear it for only a few moments due to the smell. It's a nice-looking sweater, but for your health, do not order it.
