Unfortunately pretty sure I'm sending the 54 back. I love the yarn but just too much material in the waist for me. Someone's getting a banger.
Too much material as in it's too loose? I was worried even the 54 would be too skinny for me but maybe there's a chance....

Going through the sale, not sure how this Inis Meain Aran is still available. Sold out almost immediately at retail, now with the discount it seems like a no-brainer for someone.

Really tempted by it but wondering what the fit would be like. I'm reliably a medium in all my IM stuff, the linen crewneck is a nice fit in medium for me for example, would this fit similarly?

What's the sizing on the S&C cashmere cable knit like? Is it stretchy and a fairly straight fit? I'm not sure if the M or L makes more sense. The M has a chest size (I'm 39" chest, and usually go for a 42-43" P2P for knitwear that is designed to fit neither loose nor tight) that would work well for me, but it seems a lot shorter than the L. I'm 5'10" with about as average a build as you could imagine. Most of my knitwear is at least 26" BOC, and rarely beyond 27.5". Any ideas? @gdl203 or anyone else?

FWIW I love the fit of 42" william lockie lambswool sweaters and 44" in their chirnside cashmere.

Did you check the measurements on the site?

Skeptical of KS pants being TTS. If someone is a size 30 waist, doesn’t it make sense to recommend at least 32 for them, especially when it’s gurkha or the self-belted type that is designed to be cinched?

I have two pairs of the ghurkas, I find them to be tts, or even a little large.

I also have a pair of Gurkha’s and would definitely not want to size up. I went with my usual 34 but if a 33 was made I would get that. They are roomy in the perfect way.

Interesting, thanks! How high do you wear your gurkhas - just below the belly button, or lower?
