SNS Herning- fits? - Page 321

post #4801 of 5080

Took an XXL (!) in the new Stark from Mr. Porter (5'10" 165lbs) and I had both a M and L in the Ion.  I kept the L - the M was too short

I hot-washed and dried a too-big shetland sweater and it shrink two sizes. Turned out perfectly. Good luck.

I'm wondering if I need a Large or if that would be too big. The fit on this feels pretty good, but in the first pic when it's buttoned, you can see the bottom button pulling a bit. Other than that, it feels good in the shoulders, arms, and everywhere else.


 

Late to this, but I think it looks fine. The hip comment is likely more driven by your posture in the pic and where the Stark makes that particular fold (Which changes all the time anyway).

I was just going to put it in a garment bag and wash it. Will do cold water first and if that's not enough I'll try warm.

SNS Herning Stark is my favourite knit. Would it be a dumb idea to take it with me overseas? I will be travelling for a year in all sorts of weather. Th knit will keep me warm but it's a bit heavy to carry around with me. What do you guys think?

It's heavy wool doesn't make sense - get a polyester knit, dries instantly in wet conditions, almost no smell, relatively cheap and has pockets


Not sure why you would weigh yourself down with heavy stuff when you are carrying just one backpack. Or if it's around the world, just buy disposable stuff on your trip.

Also got an Ion in today, very nice and oxblood is a rich color

The knits are so utilitarian I designate one or two as beater wear and save the rest to baby. I couldn't think of a better knit to bring for your euro backpacking.

Click here's backpacking prep spills over to other threads lol8[1].gif

Agreed with stevent, its a very nice comfy knit but a heavyweight one too. You have ONE pack on your back with you for a whole year. Do you want to look good in the pictures or do you want to have easier travel?

Don't forget you can also wear multiple clothing you have when it gets cold.

Honestly I would just pack whatever can be easily packed, doesn't catch odor easily. Think Icebreaker and outlier.

What does one do for a whole year backpacking in Europe? Isn't that like going on vacation for a whole year, something hippies do? No hate just can't get my head wrapped around a whole year "backpacking". I spent a year in Europe too but I was a student at the time and living with a host family for cultural immersion.
