my boys (20 and 23) really like this sweater. they never wore sweaters, but started this year. this is the first sweater the 23 yr. old has owned since he has been a child. they have the mallard green which is a little brighter than it appears online. it fits like a men's small fits. it is just a little big on the 5'6" 120 lb guy and fits well (al little snug like he likes it) on the 6' 145 lb guy. so, maybe it's a bit on the large side for a small. the 6' guy does usually need a medium. it is a thick sweater and looks like it won't pile easily. i did wash and dry it for the shorter guy, it it shrunk a little and looked great afterward.
