great sweaters but shipping and duty fees kill it for me.

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.

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."

^Link to sizing? Also, has anyone got the "Fang" model? Pics, opinions? Does it scratch the neck? Thanks.
post #4380 of 5005
Fang is awesome. It's one of my go to pieces because it's so easy to wear and is really warm, yet easy to unzip when you get hot. It is slightly scratchy but not on the neck. It isn't too much of a problem and it's not as bad as a stark. It fits TTS, although the sleeves are pretty long for someone with shortish arms like me. They cuff easily, although I don't love that look, but I doubt anyone ever notices. Usually I just let the sleeves hang long. The cut is slim and has almost an athletic look when it's zipped up, like a warm up suit.

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.
