Really lovely fabric, soft interior, and look one this one. Only problem is that the forearms are too tight, so you can't really roll up your sleeves. If that's not a big deal for you then go for it, but I found I have my sleeves rolled almost all the time.
Compared to the previous everyday pullover the nee large is a bit larger. It's more of a thicker long sleeve shirt whereas the previous felt more like an actual sweater. Id expect the old one to be a tad warmer but the new one feels more layerable
