FS Band of Outsiders Wool Sweater L (Canada)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just bought a Band of Outsiders sweater online and found that, while I really like it, the arms are far too short for me. I bought it from Blackbird (I hope they don't mind me linking to their blog: http://helloblackbird.blogspot.com/s...of%20Outsiders) and would like to sell it for the exact amount I paid: $US151.20 plus shipping (I'm in Canada, so it'd be especially cheap within the country). I'll cover the PayPal fees. If you're interested, here's the link to the BoO page: http://www.bandofoutsiders.com/ (look for the "Hand knit wool crew neck sweater"). Oh, and it still has the tags on it; I only tried it on to check the fit. Pit-to-pit across the chest it measures 21"; length, from top of back collar to hem, is 25.5"; arms, from shoulder seam, measure 23.5". Basically it's cut for someone with 'regular' length or shorter arms (I'm 6'3" with long arms, aka "impossible to fit" ). I take a 36 or 37 suit, and the shoulders and torso are very wearable but a touch big on me. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about it. Thanks!

I bought the same sweater. The arms are very short, even on an XL, but I think this might be intentional. I just push them up and it looks great.

Yeah, if nobody else is interested in it then I'll just keep it and wear it like that. You might be right about that being the way it's meant to be worn (although on the Band of Outsiders site the sweater is actually quite long for the model wearing it). But I think that, because of my unusually long arms, it doesn't look very good pushed up. Also, with the arms pushed up the extra material in the chest looks worse... Anyway, thanks for the reply!

Final bump! Some interest, but nothing solid. Anyone else?
