Stephan Schneider. You'll Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties. - Page 191

post #2851 of 4824
Hello all,

Did you experienced weird sizing with Stephan Schneider?

I bought the Armenian Blue Wool jacket in size 3 and it is perfect.
I tried a shirt in size 4 and it was great. I tried another shirt model but the good size was 5 on this one.
I also tried a Artik knitwear and the perfect size was 4.

So it seems that I wear randomly between 3 and 5 with Stephan Schneider... that makes online order quite hard frown.gif

yes, his sizing is pretty inconsistent unfortunately.

Have a 5 in red on its way to me. Considering my luck with SS sizing thus far it isn't a stretch to imagine it might be for sale when it arrives musicboohoo[1].gif

I got sizing wrong / weird fitting pieces 3 times prior to buying the ijevan. It fits me great and I think you'll be fine too.
The size 5 ijevan should be good for anyone who is 6-6'4, with a 40-42 chest and 18-19.5 shoulders or so.

Well I'm about 6'3 with 19" shoulders...so should be perfect!

That's my measurements as well. Check my recent fit pic on WAYWT if you want to get an idea of how it most likely will fit you.

If you have any experience with ss over the years, any "weirdness" is done intentionally. It's not due to pattern sizing inconsistencies or their desire to make everything the same size across the board. Jackets almost always run large, shirts hover between two sizes depending on the cuts and knits are either true to size or oversize intentionally, pants are pretty consistent with how he wants them to fit.

Yes, of course I realize it's intentional from the designer. I just think the cuts are not always very flattering or easy to work into a wardrobe.

 

For instance, one cardigan I got had a 23" pit-pit, 20" shoulders but was only 25" long. The fabric was too thin in my opinion to look good oversized with the draping. The other cardigan was huge with very long body and thick fabric. It passed through at least 4 guys from here and Sufu before finally being picked up by Biggen who is 6'5 or something like that. He was the only one who could make it work due to its size. The last piece was a pair of wool trousers that looked good from the measurements but the seat was tiny.

I have a sweater that is great in the arms but ends at my belly button, if it's intentional then Herr Schneider is insane.

Hope you guys see there's going to be the occasional piece your body type will just not fit into. It's not fast fashion. He has a certain shape/fit in mind when he designs the piece. The pieces are also made in accord with other pieces from the collection, so I imagine some stuff gets put together to work pretty closely with others from the line—hence those fits that seem good on the lookbook model and then end up awkward in person. Again awkward for your body proportions. That said I'm an endo- ectomorph type so his fits usually pan out. Usually.
