what? it is exact people just don't know how to size actual sized garments and the 1A runs larger than others as it's intended to be a looser fit
Well, yes, I assume there is some amount of buyer error. But if someone tells a handknit sweater company "I'm 5'11 with a 38" chest, 32" waist, and long arms, and I want it medium fit", the final product should be right on the money. I think most people in this round feel the sweaters they bought are a touch short in body and arms, and maybe a little tight.
I'm aware of this. Most just look small, is all. If I had exchanged emails with a company, I'd expect the final product to fit like I wanted. Certainly not a size too small. Then again, I like slouchier sweaters, so I'm probably biased.
The sweaters are fucking gorgeous. But anybody wondering if they should have sized up already knows the answer.

I'm on the slim side of a 38 suit, but sized up to a 40 because a 38 was skintight. Even if it gives a bit with wear it'll not be too big.
The sheer weight / bulk / structure is much of the appeal - I have a couple of (still chunky) looser-knit shawl collar cardigans and a cashmere one, and this is more like outwear than the rest of them. Nice to have options, and great for layering.
