This sweater has helped me in my hobby of vigilante martial arts justice, across the tracks in Whoville.
It's a loose, flexible fitting sweater, running a big large. I typically wear a large, and a medium is the better fit for this product. If you wear an XL, the Large will probably work for you, and a low carb diet could also work for you.
The product is quite warm, and though soft, has a delicate feel to it that would probably fall apart if handled roughly. The puffy Rudolph nose in particular is suspect, but will hold together just fine in the wash if you turn the sweater inside out. The bottom white band is unflattering and even ugly, and makes the waist look awkward. The waist truly is the "ugliness" coup de grâce of an ugly Christmas sweater.
The snow pattern is great. I caution against buying this in black... the maroon is more clearly a sweater, which is a critical part of the look.
When defeating evil-doers, I appreciate the moisture wicking quality of the 80/20 blend cotton poly material, but the material doesn't breath very well.
This sweater pairs terribly with slacks and a business suit and is not work appropriate.
Sweater fit me perfect! I am 6’4” 220lb slenderish type build. Also I have very long arms. I wear dress shirt size 17x36/37 and a jacket size 46 or 48, so I am a true text book extra large. With that being said this sweater fit my body type well! This sweater has what I would call a modern fit (not a slim fit). By no means is this the boxy shapeless Classic fit type sweater.
In my case I may have been able to wear a Lg but I think the xl was the right choice. If you have a beer gut type body I think this sweater would fit snug so order a size up. If you are a slender type that likes slim fit order a size down. If you are a regular build guy order your size... ALSO as others have stated the sleeves are LONG even with my extra long arms I folded the cuffs once (could have worn it normal but it would have hid my watch and gold bracelet). Any sweater that I can cuff and it still fit me properly would be extremely long on a normal sized guy...
Sweater seems really high quality for being a novelty and very soft!!!
So only cons were as stated by others 1. Long Sleeves 2. Slight chemical/synthetic Smell
Read the reviews on size before you buy and make the right choice. This is a great holiday sweater, got loads of compliments on it. Quite slim fitting IMO. Relatively soft, fingers crossed that keeps after a wash but frankly at this price you cant expect too much on a rarely worn holiday sweater.
This sweater was a true bargain. I needed a goofy sweater for work, and this fit the bill. The smell of the sweater upon unpackaging was really weird. I can't even describe what it smelled like. Maybe machine oils? The sweater was clean and free of any oils... but I had to air it out in the garage for a couple of days to make it tolerable! The fit is for broad shoulders narrowing to the waste. If you're a muscle builder and have a big chest and shoulders, this should fit you well. I'm a lady, and I would have preferred a more standard relaxed fit sweater. XL should have fit me fine, and this was a tad large for an XL. Not "too big" that it looked goofy - but the cut was goofy - so the fit was off. The price was so good, I can't not recommend it. It fits the bill and doesn't set you back too many bills.
When this sweater arrived and I tried it on, it literally smelled like someone returned it after they wore it because that thing reaked of BO and old men’s cologne. I had a party I was suppose to wear it to but i couldn’t because I was seriously gagging after wearing it for 5 minutes. I was extremely upset and it ruined my whole night. I asked my friends to smell it and everyone agreed with me that it must have been a return. Would never buy again.
The sweater is soft and gorgeous, but unless you are built like Superman with skinny arms it might not fit. The chest and shoulder area is large and roomy; the sleeves are extra, extra long (can be rolled) but quite narrow and a snug fit on someone without guns; and the middle portion is definitely tapered and designed for a very trim waist and no belly. Sweaters should be roomy and comfortable. So disappointed in the fit.
