Regarding fit of J.Crew sweaters.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi!

 

J.Crew just started shipping internationally, which gives me a chance to purchase their products. However, shopping online is never easy, and I seem to face the same problem over and over again; how does the item fit? Living in Norway, I cannot call, and I cannot visit a store to try on the sweaters. Therefore, I ask you.

 

I am 6ft3in tall (192 cm), with a chest size of 41.5 inches (105 cm), waist 35.5 inches (91) cm, arm length (back of the neck to wrist) 36 inches (92 cm). I weigh 84 kg.

 

According to the size chart, this would place me in the upper range of "Tall" medium and bottom range of "Tall" large, which is not very helpful to me.

 

I wear a medium in Polo Ralph Lauren, but their lambswool v-neck sweaters tend to run a little short in both general length and arm length, but the width is perfect. 

 

I am 18 years old and I like my sweaters quite snug, which makes me hesitant to purchase large, but my biggest fear when purchasing clothes is too short sleeves.

 

This leads me to my question: Is there anyone with a similar build to me who could give me advice on which size I should go for? Should I perhaps go for "Regular" instead of "Tall"? (If you aren't my build but think you could be of any help, please feel free to answer too!)

I'm 6'2, ~34.5 sleeve length, and have a 38 inch chest, and have a J. Crew sweater in a medium that I think fits fairly well, but could be slightly slimmer and longer.  I think you're probably between medium tall and large tall, but with your preference for snug sweaters, I'd give the medium tall a try.

You're going to need to have it altered to slim it down a bit, or it will look too full. I'd try the medium.

Agree, medium at best.
