    My tracking finally updated after two weeks. It went from "Origin Post Preparing Shipment" straight to "Arrival at Unit" at my home zip. lol

    Hopefully I'll be unwrapping my cardigans later today. :slayer:

    Agreed, My clerical is nice subdued brown-ish. Stunning color, I love it.


    I would jump at another opportunity for a navy 3A or a 6A. No regrets. I would only hope that they would allow for one more measurement in addition to chest: length. That would be perfect.






    As for sizing, both my cardis measure exactly in the chest what they were requested to be. I'm actually suprised at how precise they were in knitting them to requested chest measurements. No issues with sleeves at all either.

    also the camera on my phone sorta sucks ass sorry

    the color is more like a really dark navy than a charcoal, sorta kinda not really disappointed by that, still feels really nice and is thick as hell.

    good stuff thanks again zissou

    Glad to hear it!

    Maybe I need to take more photos, but I would definitely not say my 1A is anything near tight. It's a roomy fit without being too big. Anything larger looks awkward on my lanky frame.

    Your best bet for looking for photos of rare colors is Japanese websites. Even there, though, it's mostly standard colors.

    I don't think folks sized down, really. Many ordered TTS, which is risky considering how thick they are. I usually order TTS on all other knits, and it turns out perfect.

    That's an excellent fit, mellow. That's just it- my 3A is slim and I think I can fit it under a jacket. But, my roomier 1A probably won't fit under anything...

    Yeah, chest was the only measurement we could control for, and they pretty much nailed it. Maybe if there is a next time, the order can be more structured, with the request to add 2" to the arms and body length...

    Sorry the color isn't quite what you expected. Your fit looks like mine- I'm expecting some stretch in length, and it should be just right.

    I wore mine last night in 35 deg weather with a single t shirt underneath, felt great. Didn't realize how cold it was until I took off my gloves to check my phone, my bare hands couldn't stand it for more than 30 seconds.

    PS everyone who has posted pics is looking great

    kgmessier- I'll email them and let you know.

    You'd probably need a 44, or 46 if you want a slouchy fit.

    If anyone received a 40 or 42 that they're looking to unload, please PM me.

    If anyone is looking for a 38, please PM me.

    I haven't received my 38 yet, but when I do, if I find it's too small, I'm going to be looking to replace it with a larger one ASAP.

    Went to the post office today to pick mine up after I missed delivery. I Hunter, the granny who knit mine, nailed the proportions as I expected them to be. I'm 5'10", 170 lbs with a 39" chest and I ordered a 40. There's a little extra space and a little slouch (as you can see) but the arms are fairly close to the body. All in all, I'm happy with the fit even if it makes me look a little tubby. Ignore the bottom half, it's for size reference. Thanks, zissou for putting this all together. I can't wait to beat the hell out of this thing for the next 20 years.

    Yeah I have a 36 clerical grey but wouldn't mind sizing up to a 38 of basically any color way. Please let me know if anyone is interested in this. Can accommodate with some cash for the trouble.

    the fit looks right on.

    Anyone order a Loden? Was creeping through some .jp and found this. The color works well with the wood buttons

    Excellent fit, trfficjam. I think that's what a lot of people were going for. Funny thing is, I'm the sane weight and chest as you, but 4" taller, and your 40 looks like it fits larger than my 42. Such is the charm of handknits...

    cr1234 and about11oclock ordered loden

    Hey Zis, even though I didn't get in on this order I think it would be great if you picked out a Christmas card or something like that on behalf of the SF group order to send to the grannies at Inverallan. If they're anything like my gran, I think they'd really appreciate the gesture. You could even include some of the guys' fit pics so they can see the fruits of their labor.

    Just a thought. :)

    seeing as he's done this for nothing more than goodwill, i'm pretty sure zissou is the one who should get the christmas card.

    LOL at shooting down sending a Christmas card to grannies who do 90 hours worth of knitting per cardigan.

    You get the Scrooge McDuck award, gastarbeider. :fonz:
