Just got my ijevan in the mail today from SW. Needed some knit wear badly and picked up this red sz 5 ijevan for $180+tax and shipping, too good of a deal to pass up even though I knew it would be a little oversized. This thing is heavy weight, very impressed by the construction. I preferred the other colors for the ijevan but this one will work nicely as the color in person turned out much better.
What do you guys think of the fit? I'm normally a slim medium. I have broad shoulders but a really slim torso so its always hard to find jackets/sweaters/outwear that fit well. This sz 5 gives me a pretty boxy fit which isn't too bad but it definitely seems too wide on the shoulders and chest. Not to the point where it's unwearable, but i could easily benefit from sizing down. Body length is fine, and sleeve length is perfect - any shorter on the sleeves wouldn't work i feel. I still wish I could try a sz 4 because that would probably be better, but i'm also inclined to just keep this because it was such a steal. It's also worth noting that its very itchy for me. I have some shitty skin, prone to heat rash and eczema so it's pretty sensitive to rough material. I would probably have to wear a long sleeve under this. Nothing unbearable, but a heads up that its not the softest material out there. If the same material was used for a scarf or a tighter sweater, I definitely wouldn't be able to wear it.
