Kevin Durant must be unhappy with the new stark

my older SNS (2011) tag says "knit in denmark"

newer SNS (2012 +) tag says "knit in denmark, sewn/made in latvia"

What's wrong with your new one?
post #3110 of 5080
they were always sewn in latvia.

It's more likely that rules and regulations about country of origin naming changed.

My concrete Stark is thinner than my black Stark (the longer one), so you may be onto something.

yup, my 2012 triple blue stark is thinner than my 2011 melange black stark...i can wear my black one outside when it is 0-5C but i'm cold in my blue one...

Regarding the thinner fabric, perhaps Sns is increasingly catering to their global clients. Just as the cuts are becoming more generous, the fabrics are becoming thinner to accommodate the warmer non-Nordic climates.

I noticed this too, but Latvia isn't a 16 plane ride to a third world county. Latvia is just a short boat ride over the Baltic sea, so i'm not too worried about it. Just sounds like the fabric is spun in Denmark and then shipped to Latvia for production.

Still makes me question this "elite" group of old guys that sign the hang tags. Do the knits get sent back for a quality check or are the guys located in Latvia?

The average height in Denmark is 6ft tall. Yes, average. Anybody who think they're supposed to wear SNS long is just fooling themselves.

While we're on the topic of the provenance of SNS sweaters...

Here's an interesting look at the mill in Denmark where the fabrics are knit.

I think 'elite' is a poor choice of words.

Or they just like longer sweaters?

I have 3 starks, from 2010, 2011 and 2012. The thickest and longest is the black melange from 2011. The thinnest (but not shortest) is from 2010. The one from 2012 is the shortest, but not the thinnest. You guys might be overthinking this. Yarns come in at slightly different weights and tensions, especially when they are different dyes, and especially if they are melange yarns vs. solid colors.

I'll ask.
