    i tried the 40 on at my last visit, which i was debating. On me (generally a solid medium) it was relaxed all over, fuller in the chest and arms. the shoulders were slightly dropped, but the sleeves hit right at my wrists. the elastic on the hem and sleeves is very loose, which i think works well with the overall vibe of the sweater, which i found to be a cooler traditional collegiate shaggy dog but with an incredibly soft hand.

    I'm generally a pretty solid US medium. I wear a 4 in GRP, a large in nassiance and BBJ, a medium in inis, and took a medium in the niche flower t.

    the 40 was just a bit oversized, but in a good way for me. i still might pick one up, ha.

    Love this photo, but more importantly, is that American flag sweater from one of Yuki's lines? I've always liked the RL version, but a Yuki version would be really cool. Esp in navy.

    Oh wow, is that something that's going to be in the NMWA store? And can it please be in navy? Cream could be cool too.

    I got my Norwegian Rain M65 today and it’s awesome. I don’t think it’s nearly as orange in person as it is in the photos on the NMWA site, in case that gives people pause. If you’re interested in this one, don’t sleep on it. ;)

    (I’m not usually a selfie or fit photo poster so excuse the odd angles)

    I sized down one from my bum freezer size and I think it works pretty good for me. The sleeves are a bit long, but that’s more of a genetic problem than a sizing problem.

    That looks great. And yeah it’s not safety orange. Almost a little on the brown side of orange. Very wearable.

    The sleeves are long on mine too. But I’ve found that to be a feature and not a big. When I button them (and there are two or maybe even three? buttons so it’s very adjustable) I can set the cuff to stay put at my wrist with whatever layer I have on underneath while still having plenty of range of motion without the sleeve riding up or tugging.

    I’m really guessing this is how it’s intended to work.

    Fujito trucker, size 2 or 3 if I wear a size 48 jacket/medium tops?

    Edit: To wear with knits, chunky turtleneck like Monitaly, too.

    @kjb what size you took in M65? Fit is perfect.

    @Steel28 thanks! M65 is really oversized. I sized down one and took a small.

    @dolatron no issues at all, took the small liner and it fits in really well. Still plenty of room for me to wear thick gauge knits with it in. I wouldn’t try to wear a sport coat with the liner in, but it’s not like the single breasted where you’d want to size up to fit the liner.
