SNS Herning- fits? - Page 200

I have an SNS Transparent Sweater and it's a similar situation. I'm a large and it's pretty tight too. Need Supply lists a 19" pit to pit for a medium.

Well that sucks. It was the last one in L from Mr. Porter too.

Which fisherman is it? Some of them stretch like crazy so a 19" isn't totally out of the question... is it long/short?

It's the purple roundneck. The length is workable but I don't know. I would prefer a slouchier fit.

Well either it fits or it doesn't. Doesn't really matter what size is on the label at this point. Just return it if it's too slim. I can tell you that a L for your chest size should not be a slim fit and I think you probably should look for a M.

Not in response to any questions here, but something worth saying to anyone considering a SNS Herning sweater (particularly a Stark): they are warm, well-made, and look good. But if you are sensitive to the itchy properties of wool: this is not merino or cashmere, it will absolutely irritate your skin.

I make sure to wear mine with collared shirts, and it is basically fine, but not 100% of what I was hoping for, in terms of versatility. I tried wearing it with a t-shirt, and it drove me absolutely crazy within a couple of minutes.

Not a purchase I regret, exactly; it's a very nice sweater, totally worthy of the praise it gets. But it's a factor to consider that I didn't see a lot of discussion about when I was looking around, when I bought mine.

FWIW on the other side, I don't think I have many knits more comfortable than my stark. There's absolutely no itchyness to it at all, and were I so inclined could probably wear it without anything underneath.

Scandalous.

Maybe wool used varies from batch to batch...

I think that's a common experience, and that's why I wanted to say something.

If I feel the wool with my hands, it is obviously really soft and great. It's nice wool! But it touches my neck, and I cringe.

I would guess that different people are differently sensitive; perhaps I'm on the far end of sensitivity. But just something to consider, especially for anyone without a ton of experience with wool knitwear.

not itchy to me at all either, I wear it with a t shirt all the time. I think some people are just more sensitive to wool

Don't like the perforations, not on that model anyway.
