I think that it looks pretty good, but yes, I am 5'11", and a medium in the 2011 stark originally went past my butt. So, I washed it on hot and tumbled dried it most of the way, to get a lot of shrinkage, and now it's just slightly shorter than what you have on now. If you want to get bit of shrinkage, just wash the thing on warm, and then flat dry, stretching it out laterally, and vertically to the length that you desire.
I strongly disagree. DIY projects are fun. Make your clothes work for you. And don't worry about them too much, whether it's a $30 tee shirt or a $300 sweater or a $3K leather jacket.
Also, it's funny that people bitch about the fit that they don't like, but when someone dislikes a fit that they do like, they urge people to "embrace the fit". Be consistent, guys.
Oxblood Stark, XL (6' 2'', on the wrong side of 200). The color is just sick; Bordeaux is an awesome color-way, but I think this season's Oxblood absolutely trumps it. The olive green threads combine with the bright red ones over a background of burgundy-ish "Bordeaux" to make a range of colors ranging from darkish brown to burgundy -- as if an actual ox was gored and I used its drying blood to color my knit. Morbid image huh? Well, here's a fit pic to hopefully take that away:
