For Sale:
NDG Marled Brown Shawl Cardigan from FW09 - Size Medium

Will Ship To: Anywhere

I bought this sweater from here a while ago (and I’m shamelessly using the original seller’s pictures) and I never got to wear it. It fits great and it’s probably the ultimate NDG chunky knit (brown leather buttons, marled brown knit thread throughout, 80% wool/ 20% nylon fabric, made in Japan), but I can’t make it work with my limited wardrobe.

The condition is what I’d call “9/10” or “gently worn”. I know that “gently worn” gets thrown around a lot, but there’s minimal pilling (and I’m being nitpicky) and no other visible signs of wear. The buttons feel a bit loose, but I have a spare one and threads that came with it in case something happens.

The loose weave is very forgiving, but I think it works best for a 38-40 inch chest who isn’t particularly short. Here are the original seller’s measurements:

Shoulder to shoulder: 18"
Pit to pit: 19"
Sleeve length: 26" (from shoulder to cuff)
Body Length: 26.5" (from bottom of back collar to bottom hem)

I’m selling it for 270 USD, shipped worldwide with tracking. PM me if you have any questions.

I'm a 38 chest/30 waist and it's a great fit. It tapers to a 17.5 inch at the waist. I find the shoulder-to-shoulder to be trickier. The original seller measured 18 inches shoulder-to-shoulder, but I'd say it's closer to 19 inches. Even if we'd call it 18.5, I think that's somewhat wide for a traditional small. If it helps in any way, I have an overarm measurement of 45.5 inches and I make the cut, but people with a significantly smaller overarm measurement would probably find the shoulder width too big.

So, to recap, I think that the chest is forgiving, but the shoulders aren't. I'm 5' 11'' and 150-155 pounds and it fits me. If you're a 38 with broad-ish shoulders (nothing crazy) or a regular 40 and you're average height or taller, it will most likely fit.

I know I'm being pedantic and overtly boring, but I can't bring myself to say "just buy it already, guys, of course it fits".
