Let's get a couple of things straight. The Stark IS supposed to fit long. It is designed to fall below your waist. And I can say this coming from a family who have worn SNS for three generations.Danes, as well as other Scandinavians, might be slightly taller than average, but this fact has no influence on the design of Danish clothing. I don't know who started this myth, but PLEASE stop repeating it. It is utter nonsense.Mike and Suneminyo's fits are great.
