Is it always going to be a similar cut/design to previous shirts?

Yeah, its always the same pattern. That's part of what goes into the $110 price for something like this, the guarantee that it will be the same as every other shirt you've purchased so far. Given the same size the pocket placement and design should be the same across all WvG shirts. Or I should say all italian shirts should be the same as each other and all american shirts should be the same as each other. I buy from Epaulet, another brand in the same price range as WvG and you get used to buying based off a swatch. I was really unsure when I first started buying nicer things how something would look once its made into a full shirt. I still have some regrets but it's pretty rare.

I really wish they would dig up a sample at least and show us what it looks like fully finished. But just based on the fabrics from may, I would've at least gotten the bait fish pattern, maybe the floral, and the Double print for sure.

The double print if it was breathable would he amazing.

I understand, it can be annoying but I guess I'm just used to picking from swatches. I've never regretted a pattern or print that i've picked up from WvG. The wait times have become my biggest frustration but I digress. It comes with the territory as its tough for retailers to make up a single unit, since they usually need a certain number of orders to get a reasonable price on it. No point in making a sample if no ends up buying them. As well since he has pics of previous shirts up everyone knows roughly what it will look like.

All of the coolest fabrics I've seen from Epaulet I've bought based on swatches. Moving in that direction with WvG. I agree it's just part of the game but there's definitely a leap of faith if you're not familiar with the brand and the product.

Leap of faith is a great way to describe it. Im just used to it at this point. Honestly it's not often I buy something now that isn't from just a swatch.

Picked up slater sweatshirt from current sale and it's simply on another level, it's light to mid weight which makes it great for fall. There's still a medium up for grabs on the website if any one's interested

always a fan of mauro's care tags!

Looks like a pretty good sweatshirt!

I looked at it online. Why is there like only 1cm of difference between the sizes? The chest is like 23" in the medium, and that seems a bit too large IMO. How is the fit?

What's so good about it that makes it on a "different level" btw? Is the Terry quality really good that it beats out others or something?

That might be me in the future. The apparent quality and unique and beautiful prints Wolf vs Goat offers is something I have to try. Seems like iboemt be buying anything from Gustin, Luxire and the likes for a while now. Swatch ftw.

Would love to see the double print shirt though. Looks like an indigo to me which is fantastic.

I sized down based on the size charts and it fits pretty good, maybe just a tad long. Even though it's supposed to be a fuller fitting sweatshirt, it's not billow-y at all. As for the quality, this has the most uniform stitching than any other sweats I own. I also like that the bottom rib does not cling/gather like other sweatshirts, I especially like the little stitch detail around the cuffs. Like most wvg products the terry quality is really nice. It might not be the softest of the box, but I'm certain it'll get softer with couple washes.

I actually ended up finding it and buying the last one. It was weird though. I could not find it on the sale page or the sweatshirt page. I had to actually search for the name of the sweatshirt specifically in order for it to pop up. Thanks for the heads up though, i'm looking forward to getting it for the fall.

I didn't look at the size charts unfortunately, and got a medium (which is the same size I wear in Reigning Champ, Wings+Horns, and Norse Projects sweats) and it is definitely too big. Not sure if I'm gonna keep it and try to make it work or pass it on.

keep us posted. When I get mine, if I like the fit, I may be interested in picking up another medium.
