    Lufty, any updates? Does it pill? Has it stretched strangely?

    Also interested, have heard so much about this sweater and am wondering if it is worth it.

    I gathered from another thread in B/S that the medium sweater has a pit-to-pit of 23". Does anyone know the measurement for a size small?

    I just measured my Small and it came to 22" pit to pit.

    If you are looking for something smaller you should be on the lookout for the Roots version of the sweater. I found one in medium at a thrift store a while back and it looks and feels identical to the Bean version only it has a pit to pit measurement of 21.5" and is way slimmer fitting at the waist.

    LL Bean everything except for the boots (Wolverine 1000s)

    Ultimately decided that this should be a birdseye 'n plaid day.

    Looks great. I picked up that same sweater last fall off the B&S. Need to break mine out.

    What do you guys think color-wise about wearing the loden/white colored sweater during the spring/summer months?
