My mom has this sweater in the gray color. It was so soft and looked nice on, so when I saw it available in the red and black pattern I ordered it. It is a very soft knit and quite lightweight. The fit is easy although I felt that it did run a bit on the small side. If you are looking for a looser, more drapey fit you might want to size up. I stayed with my normal size large. This is a great casual look and it can also be dressed up for work.
