It's probably what I will do next time I order linen trousers, just to be on the safe side. That said all my pants have been fitting tighter than I would like lately so it's definitely time to shed some weight.

Nick. I have successfully let out thighs on a driggs without ripping the whole inseam. Gave me about a half inch I'd guess. I would try it, along with the seat likley (but can't tell)

this was my first sweater buy in, did previous drops have a larger percentage of slightly slimmer results like what is appearing now? I'm confident I screwed up myself with my sizing and will just sell it off, but would like to get a couple more sweaters next time that will fit

 

TIA

Good idea, I'll save it for next season though. No point in modifying them now if they will, hopefully, fit better next summer. But I'll make sure to keep it in mind!

Seems like it's the waffle knit cardigan that people are mentioning and that's a new style for this round. I'd guess that might account for the sizing issues.

That seems to be it. I thought I had dialed in my size but that was with the original cardigan.

ahhh.. even tho I'm pretty sure I sized myself incorrectly in the first place, I got the waffleknit..

I agree with you guys regarding the fit of the sweaters. The waffle fit cardigan definitely came in smaller than the other cardigans. Maybe it is by design to make the waffle knit tighter since it may loosen in time ? I really hope it loosens since the purple sweater is amazing.

Yeah. I have a couple of these awesome sweaters and the waffle knit definitely made up small. Damnit.

Yeah I kinda wish there was any sort of indication of this prior to the pre-order.

This was *before* I ended up sizing up myself.  I'm thinking its easier and cheaper to lose weight to make my existing wardrobe fit better instead of spending a fortune on alterations and new things, but I think I've been posting about this intermittently all year... ;D

Haha my thinking as well. I'll just have to work at sizing myself down over the winter. I'd rather my trousers fit on the large side than be painted on.

My trousers used to fit on the large side. ><

Nothing like having a number of great trousers to help you crack down on an expanding waistline.  I ordered several new pairs this season and had several pairs from old EFFs that I hadn't had a chance to get hemmed (they were flannels/tweeds that came late in the season last year).  Trying those pairs on about a month ago, I realized they didn't fit me and that the pairs I had ordered were not going to fit.  That was a moment of panic.  It's not like I made a huge effort or anything but I've been laying off the cookies ever since and managing to be a lot more conscientious about things.  Happy to say it did the trick - though I have hit that stage where constant vigilance is required...
