This is one of my quicker review turnaround times. I haven’t had the Bobby Jones Baby Alpaca 1/4 Zip Sweater for more than a few weeks, but after wearing it nearly every day since the temperatures dropped, I’ve logged more than enough miles to post my review. I wanted to be sure to get this review done before Thanksgiving and all the hubbub with Black Friday later this week. This is without a doubt the nicest, most comfortable, best looking sweater I’ve ever worn. No comparison. If you’re shopping for a golf sweater for yourself or for the golfer on your Christmas list, your search ends here.
The cable rib pattern and charcoal color of this sweater exude style and class. The suede piping around the front zipper is very sharp. The fit, cut, and ribs on the trim are so sharp.
The baby alpaca fur is so soft. I want an entire outfit, down to the undies, made from baby alpaca fur. I want my bed sheets and comforter made from baby alpaca fur. There is NO itching like one might expect from a wool sweater. The sweater is mega-soft and the fit is perfect.
This is not a super-heavy sweater. I’d recommend it for fall and spring. Very cold temperatures in the winter might be too much for this piece, unless wearing a jacket or outer layer.
The smooth fur and great fit of this piece do not bind, stretch, or restrict the golf swing. I can swing in full comfort.
No, the $225 price tag for this Bobby Jones Apparel piece is not cheap. Neither is a Mercedes.
