Wings + Horns S/S 2011 - Page 24

post #346 of 1933
Any clue why this sweater is called "navy" as the color? I want to get it, but it sure looks grey to me. Am I missing something? What color do you think it is? 4HM labels it as navy in their title. http://fourhorsemen.ca/shop/double-layer-crew-navy/ Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I can answer this as coincidentally I just got both the crew neck and the large loop terry hoodie. The crew neck is definitely a sweater and not a tee-shirt. But it isn't as thick as the Terry Hoodie. The large loop hoodie is (like people said) very stretchy and soft. It is a very good idea to size down. For example, the L in the crew neck fits perfect, but the L in the hoodie is too big.

It's navy. Their chabanel was like that too but you can tell the difference. Is it navy like the navy loop hoodie? Naw, but it's blue tinted.

How sure is everyone on the sizing of the large loop terry hoody? I'm 5'10" about 145 lbs, size 30 waist... usually wear a 38...when I've tried on W + H hoodies in the past they were too small in size small.

I don't own much W+H, but I'm a medium in Japanese sizing (BR, Real McCoy's, etc.) I'm a medium in BoO, Small in Gitman Vintage, small in almost all brands' t-shirts (except for maybe Wings + Horns)

I'm worried about the length of a size small with my height, but people are saying they are really stretchy. I definitely don't want to layer it with more than a t-shirt or polo.

I'd consider myself a small in most U.S. sizing, but I take a medium in a lot of slimmer fitting brands.

Anyone care to help? Small or medium? Anyone with my same stats own one?

Thanks.

Small if you can handle a length of about 24 - 25". Mediums are definitely 25" but probably big on you everywhere else.

i can try to help.. i am 5'7" 145 aprox 38" chest. and i purchased a L from Roden and had to send it back for the medium. The medium fits very good, not tight in any way. I could probably even get away with the small in a snugger fit. id recommended medium for you.

Gonna have to say a medium with a 38 chest, 5'10", 30" waist.. That is just to be on the safe side and to avoid any return issues. You could pull off a small, but you risk it being pretty snug. Especially if you decide to zip it up. This is me (5'8", 130 lbs, 28" waist, 36S Suit) in a size small hoodie (previous season, but same fit).

As far as the stretch goes, they are stretchy without question. Especially being if you tend to go awhile without washing them. But after you wash it on gentle, cold -- reform it, and lay it on a flat surface to air dry. It should return almost to it's original shape after completely drying. Never mess with it until it's totally dry. If you find the medium is too big, maybe even wash it, and then throw it in the dryer on medium heat for a while. Dry about 50% through, then removev and lay flat to finish drying. Warning with the navy and black options. They will pill considerably if you let them hit the dryer so I would avoid that if possible.

There are so many variables with sizing wings + horns and so many people with questions on how to size it. Bottom line, it's kind of difficult, and opinion based, hence all of the conflicting advice. Ideally, if you really want solid advice, and it's your first w+h item -- take the time to just mark out your face and post a picture of yourself, head to toe. Then post your height, weight, waist size, and suit size. Also maybe describe yourself in terms of body type, and be honest (i.e. Overweight, average, athletic, thin athletic, skinny). If you don't know your suit size, and don't have anyone to measure your chest (under the armpits all the way around, or across the widest part of your chest), then just take your favorite fitting shirt (how you like your clothes to fit) and measure it straight across the front, from pit to pit, which should be anywhere from 18" to 22"+. If you provide this info, someone, if not myself, can nail your correct size in two seconds.

For my fellow American's, I will report the time of order placed to time of order receipt from Roden Gray to a major city along the Eastern seaboard. Earlier I had stated an approximate two week wait time from several experiences - some disagreed.

Order placed: 2/2/11. Order confirmation received email 2/2/11.

Honestly, you should be okay with a small or medium, over time the small will stretch some but I guess washing it may be problematic for shrinkage.

I'm 5'8" 160 lbs and the medium fits like a glove. I wear a 31-32" pant and a 40" chest. So, to 'un-conflict' I've been convinced that you should go with a medium and let us know how it works out. If it helps, I think I misread the part about the small fitting too small in W+H for you (since it definitely has not gotten any bigger over the seasons).

I own a loop terry in medium and I'm 5'8"/147 lbs. It's definitely stretchy but I plan to use it as a layering hoodie. I have a medium terry one from 09 that doesn't stretch, which I wear just over a tshirt.
