Thanks! I did the same and it worked well smile.gif

just picked up the Ecru Nep cardigan from a prior owner. curious to everyone's thoughts on how it fits. i typically wear a 42 jacket and this sweater is a 44. feels a tad large, but i don't feel like i'm swimming...

I'd say a tad big (for my personal taste), but nowhere near unwearable by any means.

Notably, for the aesthetic of the sweater, I don't mind this fit at all.

I'd be surprised if the armpits relaxed/stretched. I'm 5'9" 165lbs with a 33" waist (at least before this holiday season) and slightly larger than 40" chest, and I own the same coat in large. If ur the same height/weight but a 33" waist than you're likely broader than I am which makes me think the large may be necessary

It's so subjective. I have a 41" chest and 32" waist (possible 33 after these past two weeks smile.gif) and am 6-6'1" 170.

The Medium fits me great.

I really like this look. BUT it definitely falls into the "cardigan as outerwear" category. It is longer than many guys will wear, but I still think the style should be a bit slouchy. FWIW, I think it does look best with a few buttons undone and the cuffs turned back.

Guys I was finally able to get to my jeans today. I tried them on briefly and man are they tight and the rise feels higher. I had a previous pair and ordered the same size, not sure if they will stretch. I couldnt even button the blue denim.

In my experience, the jeans will stretch eventually. With Ep jeans as well as with other brands, there are many paths to stretching nirvana. When I've encountered pairs where buttoning top buttons is potentially painful, I try to soften the denim by buttoning and unbottoning the jeans (while not wearing them...) repeatedly until the buttonhole material relaxes. Once the buttons become more cooperative (the criteria would be whether one could reasonably unbutton and then button the pants quickly enough to get in and out of a bathroom trip without taking too much time), I try the jeans on one to two hours at a time. The waistband will still be snug, but eventually it will relax. To accelerate stretching, I've also taken a 6- or 8-lb medicine ball and placed it into the top block and swung the jeans around for several minutes at a time. When the jeans feel just about ready for showtime, I might sleep in them every other night for a week or two just to get some stretching in the thighs as well.

 

This may seem a bit obsessive, but I have erred on the other side and ended up with a few pairs of selvedge denims that ended up feeling too saggy, particularly around the waist. I think it's better to get the fit on the slimmer side (think a rivet chino fit that eventually loosens). Of course, YMMV and of course, I still don't look as stellar in the jeans as Tricky, but hey, who does? He looks better than most even when sick with pneumonia. (Glad you're feeling better, Tricky, btw!!)

How much will the washed duck canvas shrink?  Normally I would expect some shrinkage but this fabric has already been washed. Don't care much about the length, mainly concerned with the other dimensions. Fit is pretty loose right now. Trying to decide between shrinking them in the wash/dryer on high or skipping straight to selling them. Thanks!

Konadog, this sweater is too large. I wear a similar jacket size and wear a 42 in the Heirloom.

would ideally like to trade it for a 42. but feel free to PM me if you'd be interested in purchasing. this sweater in this color belongs in my life, but i'd prefer a slimmer fit.
