I finally received my new cotton fisherman sweater from L.L. Bean that was backordered for about a month. It was well worth the wait, the sweater is very nicely done. It’s a thick knit and is 100% cotton (zero itchy factor). Machine washable (yes!). I really like the neckline of this sweater, it’s slightly higher than most crew necks (so toasty) but definitely not a mock turtleneck. The only minor issue is that I wish it was an inch longer in the torso, but I have a longer torso. Yet, the length is fine as is, I can easily remedy any unintentional sliver of midriff flashing by wearing a cami underneath (it’s too cold now not to layer anyway, as I quickly discovered while taking the pics above sans coat, brrr). Yet, the length is perfect to show off your favorite belt, come to think of it.
I ordered a size small (I’m usually a medium) and it’s the perfect size for me in the shoulders, torso and sleeve length. I’ve read some of the online reviews and if you want a more generous fit, just order a larger size (perhaps your normal size). L.L. Bean is running a Black Friday promotion online, 10% off site-wide (this rarely happens) and a $10 gift card with a purchase of $50 or more. Free shipping is a given.
This fisherman sweater would be a great gift for any woman in your life, including yourself. It’s an iconic classic that will never go out of style. I can easily see this with a preppy outfit, or boho if you wear it over a shirtdress or maxi dress, or tough girl chic with leather leggings and high heels.
Do you wear fisherman knit sweaters? If so, please share how you style it. xx
