Purchases from the last few month or so (sorry for the poor photos):
Had my eye on this for a while but the model fit pics put me off, however it was cheap enough to try and thankfully I did. So soft and warm, unfortunately there's not much winter left over here. So many little touches that I love too, from the various pockets to the awesome button snaps (never thought I would be so enthused over button snaps, but they really are terrific!).
Really liked the granite print when I first saw it, but had issues with the fit after hearing different reports about sizing this season. After a couple of exchanges, finally managed to track down both in the right sizes.
Thanks to Joseph from SP. Even more impressive in person than in photos. To be honest, the thing I most appreciate about it is the ribbing on the sleeves and at the bottom of the jumper. I have the lana crewneck from a couple of years ago and I love it, but I never wear it because it sits weirdly and just hangs without the ribbing. I look forward to more purchases from SP this season.
I have wanted a knit sleeve rider for a long time and have spent countless hours on yahoo auctions, but have never been willing to go the final step and deal with a proxy. After the disappointment upon seeing one go for a ridiculously cheap price on rakuten a few months ago, I thought it was time to make the move. To be honest, the sizing and fit is a little odd; I have a couple of UC jackets, but they are bombers; even so, I thought I would go with the same size. The jacket is a touch too slim in the body (I can barely zip it up and there is no way I could size down), however it is a little long in the body for a rider (I am pretty short though at 5'8"). Also, the black/black version is the one I really want, however I do also love this version. Not sure if I will sell in the future, I am happy just looking at it right now!
