nice and thick - the fabric/knitting/pattern is the best of any knitwear i've ever had. there's a very slight tinge of red throughout that isn't noticeable unless you're wearing it, and even then just very faintly. could never capture it in pics but it's nice even if not really visible. probably doesn't fit quite as slim as the fit pics make it look, which i prefer. my shoulders are very broad, but i don't think the shoulder drop is as exaggerated as in their photo either. i'd been having a bit of difficulty with what to make of christophe lemaire since i had no way of handling his stuff, but it makes a huge difference.
had been eyeing it all winter but no one in the u.s. stocked it which made things a bit difficult. waited until it on sale at thecorner uk (american thecorner didn't stock it for some reason). rirawin, who does the free uk uniqlo proxy, did me a huge favor and proxied it for me (still for free cause he's awesome). was just barely over $300 when all was said and done. had buyer's remorse until i actually received it.
