I received one of these as a gift for Christmas and absolutely love it. A relatively slim 36R, I find myself wondering why everyone's complaining about the fit. I ordered a small and it fits me well - slim in the shoulders, arms, chest, and through the waist as well. I am glad to have received it!

I have to make myself useful somehow, on occasion.

i always wanted one of these, but never had one. i got one off ebay a year ago (used/old/not the new version). it was _so_ scratchy and bulky I found it unwearable.

YMMV.

I have a 40" chest and I originally ordered one of these in Medium. When I got it I was really disapointed at how awkward the mid section was with the flaring. I read some sizing comments on this site as well as the LL Bean site that suggested sizing down, so I ordered a small instead. I just got it today and it fits a whole lot better. It still has a small amount of flaring in the midsection but its not nearly as bad as it was with the Medium sized one.

I'm a 6'1", 165 lbs beanpole that wears 38R. I'm debating between a Small and a Medium, but can't make up my mind. I need it both slim in the waist and long enough in the body and arms. Any help lads? Is it possible to get a Medium and have my tailor take in the waist and arms? He's done this to one of my Shetlands. Thanks

I'd say just order both a Small and a Medium and return the one that doesn't fit. Your'e out $6 shipping, but that's nominal. I've ordered 4 different LL Bean sweaters this Winter (wearing one now) and returned 2 with no problem. Tough to get more durable, long lasting products than these guys. The fit is the primary issue as some things can be too baggy, but when they hit it's time to stock up.

Unfortunately I live in Canada which makes return shipping a whole lot more expensive, not to mention duties.

Doesn't LL Bean have free return shipping to Canada? If you look at Lufty's picture of the small Norwegian sweater, you will notice how very roomy it is around the waist. That is part of the design--the air between the body and the sweater is the warming agent. I have a 39 inch chest, 33 inch arm, and 32 inch waist; I weigh 145 pounds. I ordered both a medium and a small. The small sweater had the better arm length, but I found the chest a bit snug. I went with the medium. Both of 'em billow at the waist. Just pull the sweater all the way down. When doing any outdoor activity--shoveling snow, shoveling snow, shoveling snow--this is my "go to" sweater. With a flannel shirt, the Norwegian, and a scarf, I'm as warm as toast even in zero degree weather. It blocks all the wind, too. This is not an indoor sweater.
