With the S&C cardigans, what's a good method for storage and cleaning? I really want to make sure it doesn't stretch out too much. I got the Diesel Blue from last year and I love it

Fold it and store it on a shelf with some cedar blocks or No-Moth.   Don't hang it.   Hand wash with a wool shampoo or give it to your local cleaner (if they do knits)

The customer service is disaster, they appear to have only 2 colour options - charcoal and navy, no other colours at all .. 


What do you think I would receive if I order a size 42" .. It's supposed to be 42 inch in chest, and it's the smallest size they have, but I know a lot of guys don't have chest this wide, so is it possible their smallest size is in fact a US42? 

Keep in mind this measurement they give is essentially the pit-to-pit measurement of the garment laid flat multiplied by two. So for the 42", the pit to pit is likely 21" across. This probably equates to a Large since 38 is typically a small, 40 medium, 42 large for many European makers in my experience.

Like all knits never hang. Fold and lay flat in a breathable garment bag or bin. I hardly have the need to clean knits, but when I have I have personally had them dry cleaned. You can always hand wash as well.

Regarding the lined Buttero Tanino, would they fit slightly more snug than the unlined versions? Asking because for the unlined, my idea size is a 41.5 but with half sizes not stocked/carried, I'm hoping a 42 lined Tanino would work out!

The shoulders on the FJ are wider than your typical outerwear piece from other brands that I have experienced, particularly the winter versions which are meant for layering. It took me some getting used to actually, but it's the design intent. What I have found is that this creates a slight drop shoulder effect, but when I have layered it offers the right amount of mobility so going down a size although it would line the shoulder seems up better with my actual shoulder, it would be too constricting. Try it out with multiple layers and make sure you consider actually moving in the jacket as opposed to standing still for Styleforum fit pics haha happy.gif

I've visited Norwegian rain flagship in London - they told me that they design sleeves intentionally long but so that you could turn cuffs back when it's not raining (e.g. Same material inside of the cuff not the liner ) or turn them down and be completely waterproof if needed. I am wearing mine with turned back cuffs and works very well even with the suit

I've been eyeing the same hat up as that colorway looks great. I need to check my head measurement, but I think we're close in size. If you get a chance to show a fit pic, I would certainly appreciate it.

I'm wearing the same size as always (43) and it feels about the same to me, maybe a very very slight bit snugger. The area around the ankle feels sniuger because of the padding they added, but sizing doesn't feel that different to me.

so much focus on burgundy color or derivatives this season -- conscious choice?

 

p.s. an observation!

A few themes this season: burgundy (finally!!), raglan sleeves, green, corduroy, light-filled/down, easy pants

 

Conscious choices but also driven by cool pieces we see from our makers

Not really - I'd just measure the length and get a couple pairs from one of those shoelace shops on the net
