I've heard horror stories about washing wool (shrinks too much, piling out of control etc), but I got it for a steal on sale so I don't mind experimenting a bit.

Yes man. I said fuck it one day and threw my sweater in a hot wash and let it dry in a dryer at the laundromat. It feels smaller. The Amalgam.

Are there any sites that has this in S?

Saw it on one of the Euro sites. Maybe Le Rayon Frais?

Pretty disappointed in my paragon. The holes/looser weave that lets under layers peek through are very delicate and I've had several holes develop from them breaking in the piece after only two wears. The worst is a spot in the armpit where there's now a centimeter in diameter hole...

I'm talking about the little holes you see in between/connecting the short ends of the "bars"...



I think it's a design flaw... all my other sns pieces feel and wear like they will outlive me, but feeling the wool and looking at the section it's not surprising that its delicate... more so than reasonable imo. Any other Paragon owners experience this? Or am I just a uncareful mofo with maybe a lemon ;p

While being visually impressive, that double-button look on the Paragon is such a turnoff for me... confused.gif

It's part of the design....it's pretty obvious since its all over every patch and every SNS clothing with that same pattern. Seems weird that it would stretch tbo unless your working out or running or something in it. My purple paragon I've had no issues with those spots. It's not a design flaw...

Got an email from Gargyle, 20% off SNS stuff with code SNS20 through 1/6. If I wasn't so broke I'd snag an army green Stark. confused.gif

Decided it's my turn to get mine while taking advantage of the end of season sale as well but need your help guys. I'm 5ft7 and 159lbs and I'm looking for that kind of fit : 

 

 

 

700

 

 

Do you guys think I should go for the small or the medium size? Also, if I can buy a brand new medium navy one for $210 do you think I should just buy it and sell it on SF if it doesn't fit? (Shop won't let you return items on sale)

 

Thanks!

Er.. I mean I know they are intentional. As you said it's obvious. But are they are fragile as the designers intended? That's what I mean by design flaw. Part of why I like SNS herning knits are that they are durable, workwear heritage knits and built to last. This one didn't live up to that expectation for me.

It's great that you haven't had issues. Perhaps I got a lemon, or perhaps I'm overly hamfisted. But shrug, I wouldn't be surprised if this happens to others who own other pieces with this pattern after more wears by end of winter. We'll see though.

Small.

I'd imagine you'd be fine selling on it here for that price. Need to know your chest measurement to say S or M. Plus it depends on old sizing stark or new.

Maybe, I mean only part it really is a little big snug is like top of my chest but for the most part I just wear it unbuttoned.
