I've asked purchasers of the sweaters to submit a photo or 2 of
them. So here are some pictures, and comments:
Hello Ian, I purchased this sweater from you back in Sept of 04. you had
requested that I send you some photos of it for your records. As you can see I
have not forgot. I wanted to pass on this to anyone who is interested in
purchasing this sweater and is on the fence. I live in the Chicagoland area
and winters here get brutal, this sweater is AWESOME, it is so warm that no
matter how cold, no matter how hard the wind blows, I don't feel the least bit
cold, it is so warm that if I am in a store I usually have to take it off
because inside it is very warm. I am not one of those persons who tolerates
cold very well and I have not one time ever felt chilled in it, not at all and
this sweater is by far the best money I ever spent.
I can't tell you enough how much I love this sweater and I get compliments
every where I go, people asking where I got it from, so I pass on your info on
to them without hesitation.
I am wearing a large that fits me perfect, I am 5-7" 195lbs, my only
wish was that there were belt loops to secure the belt that comes with it (not
in the picture), don't know if that is possible or not.
I have owned this sweater for 2 winters now and it looks as good as it did
the day I received it. It has held up better then anything I wear, nothing has
come unraveled, nothing has faded, nor lost any of its firmness that makes it
such a warm and comfortable sweater.
I can only say again anyone wondering should I buy this there is no doubt
yes, this is not a thin flimsy sweater, and I guarantee you will never ever
find one custom made for anywhere near the price he is asking. Should I ever
need another one I wont hesitate to purchase it again.
Feel free to repeat any of me email, or even pass on my email should anyone
want to ask me personally. I can't thank you enough for this sweater, sorry it
took me so long to get back to your request. I have sent these pics from my
mac computer, they are in jpeg form and if for some reason you can't pull them
up I can resend them in a different format..
Thanks again Bill Rycraft
Thanks for the kind words Bill.
