ill let you know once it arrives in California from UK
UK site had much more inventory at the 50% point than did US. i agree great sale and DDP
Picked up the fisherman striped waffled knit and the torso waffle knit from Porter. Don't own any of this stuff but i'm looking forward to getting it. Measurements on the torso waffle knit look pretty weird...very slim fitting - nice colour though. I wish the fisherman was that beautiful green i've seen (slept on that version in the Nitty Gritty sale), i've got enough grey knits so unless this is really jaw dropping i'll probably back it.
somewhere around here i think
edit there was also something about how sizing up was a bad idea on account of the shoulder dimensions maybe fok can clarify
The Ion cardigan is really stretchy, and also has wide, and because of the ribbing construction, slightly "build up" shoulders. If you size up, unless you have wide shoulders, the shoulders could have a "shoulderpad" effect
My sizing advice is useful because although I like my clothes to fit a particular way, I don't hew to any specific philosophy on how clothing should fit, other than to say "from lookbooks, talking to designers, etc... this is my impression of how the designer wanted it to fit."
The only problem I have with it is the fact that it's not easy to layer because of the zipper. A buttoned cardigan like the stark just looks better under a coat. I don't like layering a coat over a zippered sweater. It just looks wrong to me (ESPECIALLY if the coat has a zipper too.) I feel like the zip up should always be the final layer. With a lot of zipped jackets it's not an issue because you just throw them on when it's a little too cold to go out without one. But the fang is really too heavy to wear unless it's pretty cold, but it's not warm enough to wear when it's REALLY cold because you can't layer anything over or under it (the arms are pretty slim so I usually just wear it over a tee.) So it kind of has to be the perfect temperature to wear it. Whenever I grab it, I always find myself going through the thought process of "am I going to be comfortable where I am wearing this." If I get hot and want to take it off, then I'll only have a tee on. So basically I wear it in cold, but not freezing weather when I am going to be outside a good amount of the time. So it's kind of limiting in that respect. And yet, I end up wearing it all the time because I live in a city (Lisbon) where it is that kind of climate (cold but not freezing) a good part of the year, and lots of things worth doing are outdoors.
