Also got the green long coat in...not sure how I feel about it as of yet. Size 4 in that fits me oversized/large.
Nice, mine arrived today as well and took some pics, but you beat me to them haha. Good comparison on the weight compared to stark, they're similar. My initial impression is really positive, I really like the color and style of this one, especially the collar and fact that it has side pockets, huge bonus. I felt the Ijevan from last season was great, but would have been better with pocket so this BEE cardigan really does it for me all around. When I first saw the pre-order pics, I saw the similarities to the Author Cardigan which has been my grail piece (sup jet
!) and having handled them both now, I can confirm that is certainly the case, minus being as massively oversized. The color is as I had suspected, which is the same as the wine melange at mindtrive
I ordered a 3 and 4 and have decided to keep the 4. I have similar specs as you. Both fit me, 3 fits more slim than I prefer for a knit of this type. It does have stretch though and weave of the knit lends itself to not being undersized even at my stats though so someone preferring a slimming look would probably like it. So, I will be letting the 3 go once i find some time to get a listing going.
