Did you mention that these have a longer sleeve? This is my biggest issue with sweaters - I take a 38-40 in suits, but take a 27" sleeve on dress shirts. Yes, monkey arms.

Incidentally, I walked into Sid Mashburn wearing the below for the first time and just about the first thing out of Sid's mouth was 'great sweater!' There will definitely be one or two more of these on the way to me.

To his credit, this essentially became a thread not about him but about aportnoy.

They do have a longer sleeve, but I just learned today that the intention is for the sleeves to be rolled back.

Perhaps one can get away with not rolling it then? Mind sharing what size you got and how long the sleeve is?

I have the 38 and depending on how you measure it, the sleeve is about 25-26" - but the shoulder seam doesn't look like a shirt shoulder.

Looks great ...

.. and now you know why I was raving about these sweaters!

I wouldn't roll the sleeve. My cashmere sweaters have longer sleeves as well, (and I think you have an RLPL cable knit, right?) and I just pull them up to show off a bit of shirt cuff. The folds/extra fabric sit at the elbow, and looks fine ... they don't fall down throughout the day either... they sit exactly where I first pull them up to.

So here's the cashmere sweater I picked up while downtown. I dropped by NM after getting my jacket.

The tie is a nice seven fold Borrelli from the de Corato store as well. Both soft as an angels ass cheeks

rauman, that's the same one I picked up.

Wear it in good health! And thank you again all, for the advice. I wish I could get past the feel.

^ Chips, that shade of blue is awesome. Fits you really well too ... I want a sweater in that colour!

That photo is a portrait photo, no doubt

Thanks, no, i just can't get my cameras auto focus to work out in the living room. But the stronger light from my vanity mirror seems to do the trick when I drape a microfiber blanket against the wall. Without it, it focuses on to large a depth of field and the details are lost since it doesn't focus well on any one specific spot. The sweater is nice and thin, and very soft, so it works perfectly for what I need it to do. I hate the collar on my dress shirt though. Needs to go bye-bye...
