Men's Long Sleeve Aran Cashmere Crew Sweater
Without exaggeration I can say about this sweater: excellent quality yarn and beautifully made. I love veshi cashmere. I have a collection of cashmere knitwear from different companies from different countries. And so have the experience and have something to compare. This is a very decent copy. Given its color (Vintage Ivory) can be understood that the fiber is not subjected to further color change, and it helps to preserve the natural properties of cashmere and makes it only more attractive and durable.
In terms of size. On my size height 185 cm, weight 95 kg is very suitable size L. Excellent sat on the shoulders and at the same time very accurately is designed sleeve length. In the waist a little loose, but not critical.
In general, if you like cashmere, and if you love yourself - this sweater that you need. I'm sure you will not regret the purchase.
I thank the staff for Landsend fast order processing. Even in the pre-holiday period, all performed as accurately and quickly.
Special thanks to service delivery (Borderfree). Order shipped 28/11/2014 and 10/12/2014 obtained by me in his arms. Given the distance and the holiday hype is very good result. This professional work.
It was nice doing business with you, and once again all my thanks.
I take this opportunity to congratulate all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! All health, happiness and long life! Kind regards.

Once in a lifetime opportunity
When I was a young boy a friend of the family brought me back an authentic Irish fisherman's sweater from their trip abroad. It was 100% wool, heavy, scratchy, and over time the yarn yellowed. Even though I stopped wearing it I held onto for many years but finally I reluctantly gave it away. When I saw that Landsend was producing this sweater I was really excited about it. I have bought dozens of cashmere sweaters from them but in the last 10 years quality went down and I stopped buying their sweaters. Well, when I got this sweater my every expectation was met and I can tell you it is a wonderful heirloom that I will treasure and pass along some day. The only thing I cannot speak to because the sweater is still new is how much the knit will pill over time. But for now the fit is great, the knit and color is perfect and classic. One thing I did not like was the way Landsend slapped their label on the inside. It was sewn on and pulled at the yarns. I cut if off but I must warn you that is not an easy task and you have to be extremely careful not to cut the sweater itself.

I bought two of these sweaters, one black and one ivory, FIFTEEN YEARS ago and am still wearing them. Putting them on never fails to remind me just how soft, warm and simply luxurious this sweater is. Although it's a "man's sweater", the style is flattering to both men and women. I am a woman, 5'4' tall and about 120 lbs. and a size "small" fits, as my late father used to say, "Tight enough to show I'm a woman, but loose enough to show I'm a lady."
This sweater is pricier than most LE sweaters, but amortized over the number of wearings, over the number of years, well worth it.
These sweaters actually get softer and fluffier after several washings in cold water. Dry them flat and prepare to love them as I do.

My grandmother used to take trips to Ireland and come back with Aran sweaters. They were dense, impossibly scratchy, and among the most beautiful pieces of clothing I've ever held in my hands. Of course, I am remembering a highly romanticized version of the past, but I think it is a fair metric against which I can compare this sweater. How does it measure up? At the regular retail price and even when it's discounted, you'd think it'd be good. Well, no, that's wrong. It's *amazing*. This is probably the warmest sweater (possibly the warmest thing, period) II've ever worn. It was -15F and snowing at some point last winter and I just tossed this sweater and a light rain jacket for waterproofing on and didn't notice the cold.
And my goodness, it's soft! I mean, this is probably what it felt like when you were a baby and your blankie finally got worn-out enough to lose all its rough spots and become nothing but a ratty square of tactile bliss.
It fits well, too, about the same as any sweater from Lands' End. It's true to size, but it's really thick like any good Aran sweater ought to be, so I wouldn't recommend wearing anything too heavy underneath, as some people are wont to do with sweaters. Why would you, anyway? This thing is so warm. You don't need much else.
So, ultimately, what do I think? If you can afford it, it will serve you well and maybe even become your favorite sweater. It is super warm, soft, and hasn't fallen apart on me yet and it's been almost a year. I highly recommend checking this out.

This is an outstanding garment. Well constructed of high quality cashmere. Despite it's expense, I would not hesitate to purchase this item again--it is honestly worth its price tag!

Truly good quality, very soft, warm.
I received this sweater as a gift for Xmas and was delighted. The fit was just right; the texture and softness amazing (you know this is cashmere); the cable knit and color are very attractive.
