    Dang, I have a M in purple coming from the End sale but probably not gonna fit then. :(

    Actually, looks a little bunched in the middle there so maybe it's longer than it looks.

    I actually like the new style Stark and was thinking about offering up my my medium old style in maroon for a new style version in in either maroon or some other color. After seeing the fit pics, I dont think I can swing the new version at 6'1" 185.

    Stark sizing is just frustrating. I have a medium in the old fit and it's almost too tight in the chest but swallows me in length. I'm 6'2" 168 lbs so I usually have the opposite problem.

    You could probably do a large. I'm roughly the same height, perhaps a half inch shorter, and large length is bordering on perfect to just too short. I'm a 39 chest though right now and it's a bit looser in the top than ideal, but passable.

    Great input thanks. If anyone wants to trade a large new style for a medium maroon old style, let me know. I will move this over to classifieds but figured it was worth mentioning in this thread as well.

    My biggest issue with the length of the old style was figuring out what jacket to wear over it. Most of my casual jackets are fairly short and my dressier overcoats look out of place with the Stark.

    Fisherman full zip or stark? Found both for 40% off.

    I like the fang and portal jacket zips better than the fisherman. Go for the stark if you like the color.

    Fisherman zip is fine IMO--it's a riri--just not as beefy as those others.

    Biggest factor for me is the Fisherman has a true rollneck vs the Stark's high collar.
    Everything else being equal, that and the placement of the Fishermans shoulder seam are the biggest visual comparisons in my view.

    By zip I meant the model not the actual zipper. The portal jacket is really understated and cool. The fang is badass, even the name. The fisherman I just don't think looks quite as good, although I've never seen one in person. I prefer the fisherman crewneck without the zip. Just my opinion though.

    Anybody have a SNS scarf? Can I assume they are soft and full of awesome?

    6' 2'', 190 pounds, fairly "athletic" build. (By "athletic" I mean I go to the gym 2-3x a week, not Somalia starving like some people here use the word.) Wear a L in most slim fit shirts, M in regular fit ones. Thinking about copping a Large olde green Stark by mid-January's time for around ~$250 - $300 shipped. Possible? Any comments on the fit I chose or places that might be selling the Stark at such a price?

    I think the fits good. Same as how my stark fits.

    I'm 6, 160 and athletic, although more triathlete than bulking bro; typically, I'm a medium in TTS brands. The new stark in a large fit me correctly (I tried a medium and it was too small)- at 2 inches taller than me, the length should be fine on a large. But, the extra 30lbs you've got makes me wonder whether you'd be an XL? There's a fit pic of the large on me several pages back.

    I posted pics of my M old style stark somewhere in the annals of this thread. I am 6'1" 180 and it fits great. If you are okay with a fairly slim fit, I think you swing it. If you want to play it safe then an L.

    I found a site that sells the SNS Herning (the newer version) for around $210 shipped. But they only have size small. Now I am usually between sizes small and medium in most of the clothes I wear. I do prefer a fitted look and was hoping the knit will stretch. Do you think this will work out?

    It depends on your height. The stark has a big margin for error in the width (it stretches and drapes) but has a sweet spot in length. I would never advise sizing down on the new model, but that's because I think the stark looks best long and comfy, rather than short and slim. It depends on how you want it to look.
