Pringle sweaters - Page 2

post #16 of 21
Does anyone have any info regarding Pringle sizing. It seems that their versions of medium and large have changed over the years. I've been told that currently a 44 is a medium, so I assume a 46 is a large. I'm not sure about the vintage stuff on Ebay. I have a 42 inch chest and a 35 sleeve length. I guess a large should work for me...

I too have a couple of Pringle sweaters that I've had for many years. They're like old friends when I pull them out of storage every fall. However, as CTGuy said, they are available for very little $$$ at Filene's Basement. (Which means you can probably find them on EBay for next to nothing)

I do not know about the US, but Pringle, and more recent Burberry suffered from their products becoming part of the uniform of choice of the descerning scumbag/scrote/chav etc type here in the UK. The Burberry brand is close to being unwearable in the UK at present. Good to see pringle make a comeback, and check out TK/TJ Maxx who frequently have their stuff.

I read somewhere that Pringle is trying to become 'hip' - comments?

Pringle is definitely updating its styling and trying to appeal to a younger buyer. i have 2 polo shirts and a track jacket that are definitely "hip" as opposed to the traditional Pringle conservative. The new line I've seen in Bloomingdales is all modern/hip style, which put it in my top 5 radar of brands to check in on regularly.

Bringing this back up, I just happened across a Pringle "dress" shirt at a thrift store and picked it up for $9. (I almost fainted when she rung me up, I hadn't looked at the tag). In any case, it is pretty nicely made in a weird "knit-print" fabric. I can't explain it other than that blue is printed on to make the white ground stand out looking like sweater-style knit. Unfortunately it has a large Pringle lion logo embroidered on the chest, but at least it's not a recognizable logo in the US. I'm still considering picking it out of there but I think it would look pretty obvious. I didn't notice the logo before I bought it but I can live with it. I have been looking high and low (thrift and discount only) for an ice blue dress shirt to replace my last one I made myself get rid of. No idea what retail is on this but quality is on par with BR or similar. Slim fit for a 16. Long enough sleeves (34") Made in Portugal. Double needle side seams most likely.
