Michael J.wrote a review of Patagonia Down Sweater Vest - Men's on August 22, 2018
Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large
Seemingly solid construction, nice zippers and pockets, and yellow color was great... exact shade I was looking for. Had heard that the warmth on these was outstanding.
And then I put it on.
Worst fit of all time. I am 6'0", 190 lbs, 32" waist and 40-42 in a sport coat (for sake of comparison). Put on the large and it looked as though the shoulders were made for an average-sized 6th grader and the torso/waist were designed for somebody that wears a 46" waist pantsize. Ridiculous. Looked horrible. Tried XL and it was horrible as well... shoulders still did not fit and waist could have been suitable for Santa Claus and his belly (like a bowl full of jelly).
For $170, this is extremely confusing. I expect a horrible fit like that for something that costs $20. Did somebody purchase the brand and tank the design? Or is the average Patagonia customer shaped like a pear?
Disappointed and in process of returning product.
