This sweater is awesome. It's exactly what I expected and wanted. This looks and feels great. I've gotten so many compliments with this sweater, which easily makes my day. It's something I wear casually, and it looks great for those family dinners or just going out. It's a very sharp looking hoodie, which I never knew existed. It really gives me a nice relaxed feeling when wearing it. I know it may sound crazy, but this sweater looks nice and the hood throws in a very nice calm feeling when I talk to people. Their response is incredible. My only complaint with this sweater was how I took care of it. I washed it and dried it and it shrunk considerably. At first it made the sweater into a perfect fit, the second time (and it doesn't shrink anymore) made the sweater a little too small for me. I still love the look though. I just roll up the sleeves now. (I got a small for anyone whose curious). Overall this sweater is awesome. I'm very happy with the color too. The Ink color looks real sharp with khakis and oddly enough, it's the only hoodie that I can use and still feel dressed up and sharp. Seriously I will have to take a picture to show everyone. I only wish I took better care of it. A big thank you Merrell!
