Institute for Advanced Studies.

The great man at his cluttered desk flips open a random book with his fingertip, glances down casually at a page.

Hmm, interesting.

His gaze shifts to a blackboard full of equations, practically unchanged in 20 years… those pesky gravity waves in the left corner.

He stands up to greet you. Surprisingly tall. Strong handshake. He’s something of an outdoor type, actually.

On sunny days he sails to the middle of Lake Carnegie with his violin. If the wind is blowing in the right direction, you can hear a Bach partita coming in across the water.

Advanced Shawl Sweater (No. 1728). Thick three-gauge wool, generous proportions. Big shawl collar. Patch pockets. Fully-fashioned construction. Real woven leather buttons.

A multidimensional thing…posh, comfortable, robust, and thoughtful, all at the same time.

Men’s sizes: S, M, L, XL, XXL.

Color: Olive.

My new favorite sweater
This is an excellent cold weather sweater, just the right amount of chunky and the shawl collar is great. Sizing is right on. May have to get another as I will probably wear this one out this season.

Excellent Value
I love this sweater. I put it on today fresh out of the box over and oxford cloth button-down shirt. This will likely be my uniform for the rest of the winter. Excited to finally have a heavyweight, 100@ool sweater like this in my wardrobe. Great price for an investment piece like this. Leather buttons are a great touch. Size down for a slim fit. I went with my true chest size though to ensure I'll still fit in this thing 10 years from now!

Extraordinary value
Beefy, heavyweight, and functional- shawl cardigans don't get much better than this, especially at this price. I was frankly thrilled to get this- the workmanship and attention to detail are heartening. And made in China... well, some of my crummiest (expensive) shoes and (expensive) dress shirts were made in the USA or Italy, so go figure. Sizing: I am 6'2 and 200 lbs, average build. I wear a 16 x 34 dress shirt (usually Brooks Brothers regular [I think they're calling it Madison now] fit). This sweater fits me perfectly. Well done, J. Peterman.

I bought this for my spouse. It is beyond fabulous, the kind of sweater I havent seen for a long time, and Im not a stranger to internet shopping. The sizing chart worked perfectly for us with this purchase. I will wear it when he isnt.

Classic grandpa cardigan
Thick, generously sized without being baggy, and the all-around perfect cardigan that doubles as a jacket on fall days. Love the very generous shawl collar that turns up for added warmth. (Leave the scarf at home.) Beautiful leather buttons. Wish everything wasnt made in China, but such is life. Highly recommended!

Good for different types of weather.
I bought this sweater last year, and after having it for a year can say I really like it. The knit is loose enough that if you wear it with just a shirt underneath, its comfortable in 50-60 degree weather, but it holds up well with other layers, making it comfortable to wear as cold as 30s. Plus, it looks darn coolkind of like Steve McQueens sweater.

Cannot be improved upon.
I have had this sweater since it first showed up in Petermans catalog. Some Nebraska Winters, if I am not our in a blizzare, it is the warmest wrap I need. It is not too warm to wear to the mall. THANKS Peterman for offering this great sweater

As I stroll down past Bancroft Hall amid the histories Mysteries of the US Naval Academy on some misty, chilly weekend during football season- I wear my THICK Cardigan Sweater.

Yes, I am OLD SCHOOL...I like buttons, large buttons...and I know no fear when the cold winds blow off shore.

I am wearing this sweater from ol' man Petermans store. Its Epic...I tell you...see it for yourself. Dont you deserve to have one in your closet this year?

I am happy, content, ready for that big game! Ready for NAVY to trounce some other team upon field of battle on this ancient football field tomorrow. I am amazed at the great deals one can find among J. Petermans catalog.

The Platonic Ideal of the Sweater?
I hate sweaters. I love this one. Thick, well-tailored. Warm. A mug of tea almost appears in your hand while you wear it. It is loose where it needs to be and snug where you need it to be. One of my favorite Peterman products.
