    ^Not really, stretch makes measurements when the things aren't worn pretty meaningless. Any given size of sns knit is going to work for a large range of people, fitting slimmer or more relaxed still looks good.

    Forgive me for assuming detailed measurements would help people out with sizing.

    I ordered Stark in Burgundy in a small.

    Now I'm thinking I should just rock the brown from Tres Bien. I tried to order it, but I got stuck at the last step. It kept saying my credit card method is invalid even though I'm using AMEX, which they accept.[​IMG]

    So, what's the consensus on the stark? I'm waiting to order one but can't decide between M and L. My build is 6'2 180 lbs 41 chest.
    I saw one post recommend the L and another the M, since it will stretch. Is the length of the L awkward for people in the 6-6'2 range?

    wj4, was you order cancelled from that Støy Munkholm store? I'm not sure about currancy exchange fees, but to me they seem to have the best price (about $230 shipped)

    Yes, Rich. And you're right. After I converted from DDK to USD, it's about $230-235 shipped. The order changed from 'on going' to 'cancelled' today.

    thomasec - thank you for the link.

    Now another dilemma has to be dealt with. Should I get the Burgundy as planned initially. Or should I get the brown? I kinda grew to like that as well, haha.

    I tried to order from TresBien earlier today, but got stuck at the credit card process. I entered my AMEX card, but it said that it was invalid even though they stated they take AMEX and everything I entered was correct.

    I'm your exact size and I bought the L. It fits great even with the small amount of stretch, but was in truth pretty tight when I first put it on. Now I can were an oxford under it and it fits great.

    Small Stark Burgundy
    I caved in and ordered from the link. It was about $292 shipped to CA. The good thing is that since they're in the states, it should make returning easier if I need to due to sizing concerns.

    I'm 6' at around 165 and the medium is snug, haven't worn it much yet so I suppose it will stretch a bit.

    Does stretching occur on all SNS knits or just the Stark? Any idea why they stretch so much? Perhaps it's the knitting technique I assume?

    I do agree on the latter part. On the 2nd page, a user posted pictures of himself in a Stark that is rather fitted and it looks good. Right below him, another user posted pictures of himself in a Stark that is a tad bit long, but somehow I also thought that looks awesome as well.

    6'0, 177lb, 41.5" chest and can fit the M snug with an oxford underneath. Haven't had a chance to try on L. Rich, you should try it on in person judging from all the varying info in this thread. I've requested measurements from several retailers and they are all different from one another.

    wj4, have you tried to resolve the problems with your canceled order? they seem to have pretty attentive customer service; I put a stark in my cart last night but didn't finish checkout and I got an email from them this morning.

    "I can see that you have tried to order a S.N.S Stark cardigan from our Online Store. For some reason, your purchase did not come all the way through our payment system. I will therefore have to delete your order. The product are put aside for two days ... so you can visit the shop and try again!

    Should there be any questions please feel free to contact me.

    We're talking about the Danish website, right? I got the opposite, they seem to ignored my email. Upon completing the transaction, I got an ID number. I emailed them requesting that they inform me once it's been shipped and gave them my ID number. They never emailed me back. The reason I knew it was canceled was because I rechecked my status order. It changed from 'i gang' (on order) to something else, which meant 'canceled'. (Had to translate the words myself too since the site wasn't really English friendly).

    I looked at my online statement, and they haven't billed me. But surely I will keep an eye out for this.

    SNS customer service is a joke takes them forever to respond and when they do they tell me they don't know what stores have a specific product [​IMG]

    Hah yeah, partially cosigned. I've emailed them before about stockists and got late, useless replies. I was completely surprised when they got back to me within 48 hours about this.
