post #916 of 1030
I'm late in posting up these fit pics and sizing reference, but here you go. Size 40 3A lumber cardigan in natural (feel free to check sig for more info):

I'm 5'8", about 150 lbs with a 38" chest measurement and the pics above are of the size 40. I tried not to make the sizing equation too difficult here guys, went one size up from actual chest measurement and that's the fit I went with, which I think is good.

Looks good.

Looks like there might be a good deal on ebay for a 3A in white/natural (I am not the seller)...http://www.ebay.com/itm/handknitted-Inverallan-aran-pure-wool-cream-cardigan-/171235406258?pt=UK_Womens_Vintage_Jumpers&hash=item27de6cf1b2. Listed in the women's section, but I do not see anything that precludes a guy from wearing it (at quick glance it looks like a normal 3A to me). The measurements appear to indicate it to be around a 38/40 but you may want to get additional measurements from the seller to be sure.

36" long? gotta be a typo
post #920 of 1030
Exactly why I said one might want additional measurements (with instructions describing how to conduct the measurement). If not a typo, then perhaps the seller flipped the collar up and measured from top of collar down (not sure why one would but that seems like one explanation to me; yet, even then the measurement sounds off).

Yup, I got it. They accepted my best offer biggrin.gif

I took the risk it would work out with the measurements, I bet just guessing by the pictures it'll be fine. For that price I had to take the chance.

I am glad someone was able to take advantage of it. Out of curiosity...how much did they end up accepting?
post #924 of 1030
I offered 32 quid, they came back with 35... and I accepted.

Well, it is a women's sweater, and is identifiable as such from the way it buttons.

Bah! Oh well, I had to gamble on it. And is it that it buttons up from the other side that's the difference between a mens and women's knit?

Not a big deal. If it doesn't fit you well, just give it to your girlfriend.

Not just knits. Everything.

post #929 of 1030
Here, I bought this one a while back, the way it buttons is supposed to be women but the collar and everything else is men's features. I think the one you bought is actually women's in term of details, not just the way it buttons. I hope u can make it work tho.

Yeah, men's stuff always buttons left over right so you don't catch your folded-over shirt cuff on the shirt or jacket's placket while drawing your sword, which you wear on your left hip because of course you're right-handed, or at least that's how you sword-fight.
