    That's the problem, I'd like to try on the different sizes but unfortunately they only have a size medium. I can get an oxford under there but it's pretty tight. If it stretches out then that would be great. I guess my question is hard to answer since everyone likes their cardis to fit differently, but I appreciate all the input so far. I did manage to get measurements for the M and L although I'm not sure how accurate they are, but just in case anyone needs them as a guideline:

    size: M L
    pit to pit: 47 cm 50 cm
    shoulder to shoulder: 45 cm 47 cm
    arm: 64 cm 67 cm
    collar to hem: 62 cm 65 cm

    So, stick with the M and I get a tight fit in the chest, shoulders and arms but perfect length. Go with the L and the body and sleeves become too long but the chest/shoulders fit comfortably...

    If it's not too much trouble, can you guys post fit pics? Superbobo? tooshay?

    Here are some pics of me in my Stark Cardi in grey. I went with a small and I typically wear small across all brands and I like the fit as is. Just right on me and how I like to wear it. I'm about 5'8", 150 lbs.

    Weird, all the ones I've tried on and seen, including the fit pic above, have rather short arms. I'd like to be able to double-back the cuffs, but they'd be halfway to my elbows

    5' 10" 180 here, got a large Stark in Olde Green a few weeks ago and fit is good except maybe a tad long in the body. Arms are fine. It's a really significant piece and makes an impression, but unlike you guys I just can't pull it off. Paid 255 euros, for sale at a good discount. Signed tag included.

    I like it. You're right, I'd like it better an inch or two shorter, but it looks good. All the SNS's I've tried on didn't seem super long to me, though I've never met a Stark in my size.

    Seems like sizing these things is a real dilemma. The knit really is beautiful. I think a medium would at least start out too tight in my arms & shoulders, question is how much it would stretch . . .

    i have 3 items from the brand over several years, and some tend to run long like the cardigans, quite odd sizing.

    I wouldn't call the sizing odd - some models are cut a bit different.

    SNS tends to run slim (rather size up than down) and long (especially cardigans and the newly released or rereleased stuff). And I have never encountered the sleeves being too short, and finding sleeves that are long enough is generally a problem for me.

    But it would be a lot easier giving some sort of advice, if we spoke about the specific model. Naval for instance is cut shorter than many SNS models, so if that is what you base you knowledge on, then it doesn't give a fair representation.

    Like I have said before, I have a lot of SNS knits, and I have access to a lot of different models just by living in Denmark (in Herning at the moment actually).

    Sorry to bump this thread, but I'm interested in picking up the Stark cardigan. Seems like sizing is a bit tricky with these. I'm 5"10, and 155lbs, and I'm debating between the Small and Medium.

    I like to wear things more fitted, but I'm worried the small is going to be tight and uncomfortable. Can anyone help me out with sizing? I don't believe there are any places in Chicago that carry SNS, so unfortunately I won't be able to try one on before buying.

    I am 6'3, 200lbs, about a 44 chest and I got an XL. I usually wear L in shirts and XL in outerwear. It was fairly snug on my arms and in the chest, but not bothersome at all. With that said, it was a bit longer than I had expected, but didn't both me one bit. Here is a fit pic for reference:

    Hmm....thanks for the fit pics. Still can't decide between a medium or small.

    Also, is the stark cardigan pretty hard to pull off? Again, I've never seen one in person, so it's hard to tell how "loud" the stitching pattern is.

    Do any shorter peeps on the board own a Stark cardi.
    I am 5'6 and was wondering if the small or medium would be too long on me.

    Medium would probably be too long, depending on the look you wanted. If it helps, I am 6', 150 lbs, 38" chest and have a small Stark which is a slim, comfortable fit and covers my hips. As a few people have mentioned, the knit stretches so it doesn't feel constricting by any means. I might have gone for the medium, and slightly looser fit, but my shoulders are fairly narrow.

    Just tried on a few of the FW09 pieces at Winn Perry. They really are excellent in all ways, especially the Naval Hoodie and the Stark Cardigan. I'm 6'3"/175 and large fits me great. I'd agree they are TTS, with a slim body. Also, long. I'm tall and the bodies run on the longer side--not too long, or sloppy, but def not cropped shorter.

    Stick with medium imo.
    I wear a large and I´m 6´3, 34 waist, 44 chest and more like 19+ shoulders. It was very snug from the beginning, but stretched out nicely. I think a XL would have felt too big and long after a bit of wear. But ofcourse, thats a matter of taste.
    I also have a their thin merino cardigan (very recommended) but had to get a XL in that one.


    This is good to hear. I'm about the same size as you two, although a little skinnier than Bobo, and I have a L Naval on its way to me. I've been wondering if it's going to be too large. I'll report back once it arrives.
