post #27616 of 36421
I've been lusting those S&C shawls for a while. How do people like theirs? Are they soft? There's been a lot of debate on here about the sizing, but I want something not-so-slouchy and perhaps more fitted. I'm a 38s Eidos... Order an extra small or a small?

They are great...and soft. I take 52 in Eidos so you might need an XS. Greg and/or Kyle would know best though.

What's the general sizing advice for the NMWA model Eidos sport coats? True to size? Size up?

From what I gather, the S&C is more of a "regular cut" cardigan. I think because of it, it gives the slight bunching effect toward the bottom of the sweater. I tried both the M and L in the cardigan, but I wanted more of a slim fit. The M was too snug in the shoulders but still exhibited a slight bunching effect, while the L was better for my shoulders, but then the bunching was even more pronounced. If you want the slouchy look, I think the L works for you, and at least from one pic, doesn't look too blousy in the body. I think that's just the way the sweater is cut. But I suppose it's based on the degree of slouchy you're looking for. I personally think slouchy looks better with chunkier sweaters. Less so in this type of cardigan, particularly if you want to throw a sport coat over it. Only my opinion, of course.

You guys and your superhero drops! My cardigans don't bunch at all at the bottom - they stretch tight around my child-bearing hips. frown.gif

Cardigan fit looks odd but shirt fit is good IMO, especially pre-wash and for that type of shirt. It doesn't show off your Mr Incredible physique though smile.gif

Murl, try buttoning the top button of the cardigan and unbuttoning one more at the bottom. The PF looks OK untucked other than the sleeves which surprisingly look a little long. Maybe size down on that, but probably not. Just accept that it's a relaxed piece.

Cardigan looks fine to me wouldn't want any smaller than that.

Yeah, it's weird. I don't think the PF picture highlights just how big it is though. I know they are a meant for a relaxed fit, but it's really big. I think I'll try to size down. Mr. Incredible....ha, you won't catch me near the weights.

I like relaxed, but it just doesn't look right. Different buttoning:



I've only had to make a couple returns/exchanges so I am bummed. I hate wasting NMWAs time and money....I know Greg will say it's part of the business, but I still hate doing it.

Nothing to learn. Neither ways pictures how I actually wear a cardigan. I only unbutton the bottom...whether that's right or not I dunno, but that's usually how I wear them.

No worries murl. Just send them back. I'm sure you'll find other good stuff. (Like maybe an olive cotton suit? wink.gif)

I'd love one. A suit like that needs to be at Pitti in June. I'll MTO the suit and you take me with you. Sounds good to me too. Deal.

Cardigan doesn't look bad with the different buttoning, but pockets on them are always a crap shoot.Too bad, looks like a nice piece.
