My observations compared to the 3 starks I've had before (navy, maroon, black):
-Purple melange is super dope, color is so rich!
-Stark feels lighter, either less wool was used or weave is less dense? Might also be just the huge amount of length chopped off
-Chest feels about the same, arms a little tighter. I'm a bit fat right now but still feels tighter in shoulder / upper arm compared to before. Edit, looking at old fit, chest is definitely like 2 inches smaller.
-Length is much much shorter, imo too short
I'm 5'7" 180ish pounds right now, normal weight at 170 or so but been loafing around a lot lately... chest 20.75 or so, shoulders 17.75, wearing a size M
and slightly awkward side shot, trying to show where it ends in regards to pockets
and here is a fit in M from last year to show the HUGE difference, I'm probably a bit heavier now then I was then as well:Edited by stevent - 10/1/12 at 8:04pm
