RAF/RN sweater (2012-10-23)
This sweater is fantastic; I''am 6''4 and ordered the XL and it fits perfectly with a little extra room, the sleeve length is good and the quality is very good as well. Although I do living history sessions I wear this generally as well -Perfect for the Northern Winters!

If you search the Imperial war museum website there is a photo Ref: A 7720 of the crew of HMS Utmost wearing these sweaters.

Perfect Vintage Look (2012-10-16)
I purchased this sweater after much deliberation and I could not by more pleased with my decision. Having researched all available sweaters on the market, I went with the WPG based solely on the price point, concerned though I was about the oft-cited shortness of the sleeves (which was my prime concern).
Having received the sweater I was immediately impressed by its authentic vintage look and feel. In person, the sweater looks nothing like something recently purchased from a modern shop. The wool has a slightly rough (though not scratchy) texture and a sturdy feel. The neck is quite tall, and the ribbing has enough elasticity to retain its shape whether folded or rolled. The sleeves are JUST long enough to be worn, but not cuffed. I simply soaked the sleeves in cold water and hung to dry with a bit of weight attached to the sleeves to retain the length. The result was a perfect fit allowing for a turned-back cuff. I am, as is probably obvious, thrilled with every aspect of the sweater and will, in all liklihood, be purchasing another soon.

raf sweater (2012-09-23)
the sweater was terrific- the size didn't fit right on me so when i tried to exchange it for something else the shipping charges from u.s. to uae were $195 usd - 3 times what i paid for the sweater - because of this i cannot purchase anything else from your co. although i would like to .
thank you paul calner

Great RAF Sweater (2012-09-09)
It is what I had hoped it would be - a great sweater. I have been looking for a sweater like this for sometime. It will work under my flight jacket as well as my ski jacket.

Submarine sweater (2012-08-31)
Shipped from UAE to Tasmania in 4 days, unbelievably quick. Sweater is outstanding and all I hoped for. I''m 6 foot 3 inches tall and size 38 chest and the medium fits perfectly. I found sleeve length to be fine (long enough to roll). The transaction has been a pleasure.

Like the others who've commented, I too have looked high and low for this sweater. You've made my fantasy a reality. Super fast delivery and spot on sizing. Thanks. I won't mind when the weather turns cool when I go sailing now.

Good Value (2012-06-06)
Very good Jumper. Arms are a little short, but will fix that with a wash and stretch. Also a couple of loose threads had to be cutt-off - but all in all - love it.

RAF Sweater (2012-05-16)
I have always wanted one of these. Fit is true to size, good quality wool, fits perfect under the flight leathers, looks damn dashing, looking forward to cooler weather so that I can wear it more often.

UK RAF Submarine Sweater (2012-05-11)
I couldn''t believe how quickly it arrived! Wonderful sweater. I ordered a size larger than I ordinarily need and found a generous fit. The cuffs and waistband ribbing are a comfortable 4 inches in length, and the deep turtleneck collar makes for comfortable warmth and great looks. You can easily fold over or roll the turtleneck to fit your neck, and the collar fits perfectly - no ''noose'' feel to it! Because the wool feels...robust, I handwashed it in tepid water and blocked it after washing and it was much softer. Don''t expect cashmere softness, but then these sweaters/jumpers were made for tough, utilitarian wear. I''m 100% pleased. Thank you for making this great sweater available!

UK RAF Submarine Sweater (2012-04-18)
I had searched and searched high and low for this exact sweater for years. I had worn a similar garment in sea cadets back in the 1980s, but it was polyester. I was worried because some of the reviews described wrong sizing. Nothing could be further from the truth. I have had the opportunity to examine an authentic sweater from WW2, and this one is a dead on match. I am 5''8" - 175lbs, medium build, and very proportionate. I ordered a Small, based on the sizing chart. The arm length and body length are perfect. This sweater is not thin, and not bulky. It feels very much like a military issue item, as it is intended to be. I love this sweater! Thank you very much WPG!!!

NICE ITEM. i AM 6'1" medium build & the jumper fit is really nice, though the sleeves could do with being a little longer. Delivery was really fast. Very pleased.

British Submarine Sweater (2012-02-02)
I actually bought the sweater for my girlfriend who said she loved it because it was 'just like the one Bridgette Bardot wore'. She loves it and I was very impressed with the quality and feel of the wool. Highly recommended and as many others have stated, pretty much perfect. I might get one for myself now!

Brit Sweater (2012-01-12)
Great sweater. I am 6'1" - 175lbs - med. build. I ordered a large and it seemed abit roomy in the back, so I ordered a med. to see how that fit. There is not a alot of difference between Lg.& Med. The med. is slightly snug but still has room for t-shirt and the sleeves are slightly shorter, but they do stretch. BTW, the wool is outstanding - feels like angora.
Now I just need a Spitfire and an English babe that looks like Jane Seymour!

Turtleneck white RN sweater (2011-10-29)
Fine, a very nicely made and comfortable sweater--sleeves run a bit short, but they will no doubt stretch---I doubt I'll ever really wash it!(cold water--and that's ...maybe)

UK RAF Submarine Sweater (2011-10-28)
First let me say the idea of a man in a white turtleneck sweater is not very manly. That said, you've never seen these sweaters. The Military Service Academies have it right.
This thing is a work of beauty. Do not buy it to snug; give yourself some room. Have it is old military service wear.. and prepare to be amazed.
I'm 5'10", 160lb. Shirt size is 17"-36". I bought the large and it fits like a glove.

I received it only a few days after ordering it. it was shipped UAE; I'm in Wash, DC. I could not be happier. I cannot wait for the cold weather. USAF.

Sleeves are a little short, but they stretch. Softer and more comfortable than I expected, but just as cool as I expected.

Becker - US
RAF sweater (2011-08-14)
Got my package 2 days ago.Here''s my 2 cents:
I''m a 42" chest & 32" waist. I ordered a size 40-42. It was PERFECT. My shoulder to my cuff is 22 1/2". I body build. I weigh 185 lbs. For those of you who do the same this is a great looking sweater! The TURTLE NECK is QUITE thick though. I like the look so it''s ok.It''s not too thick, the wool. I didn''t wear a
t- shirt shirt underneath. Forms to your body well. For those who complain about the short sleeve: There is some truth to this. It''s not REALLY a big deal though. Measure your shoulder to your wrist. I had my sleeve bottom rolled up a bit even like a real KRIEGSMARINER!If you have a problem WASH the sleeve and stretch it a bit. Once it dries it''ll be perfect!If you want a great clinging fit don''t order OVER YOUR SIZE. If you''re 42 don''t get a 46 unless you want it loose!2" under or the button is the rule for me for a SHAPELY fit. This is 1940 not 2011!! WHETHER in a U BOAT or RCAF/RAF, get in shape!

Sweater (2011-06-26)
As others have mentioned, the sleeves seem a bit short. I'm a 42" chest and the L fits okay, although since it's wool I worry a bit about shrinkage. I'd like to see if the XL fits better in the sleeve, so maybe next time I'll order XL, but I'm happy with this purchase. Washing in cold water and stretching the sleeves out while drip drying may solve the sleeve issue. Still, I suggest WPG adjust the sleeve length to add an inch or two.

Just got the sweater and it's perfect. If you are a size 44 regular, the XL will have a nice fit. Shipping to Sweden took just 10 days.
