    To me the best word to describe the sweater is dense or compact. For the warmth and heft of the sweater it does a great job of maintaining a slim profile by this dense fabric that I'm trying to describe. If you like the Valstar jacket that you posted below then I think this sweater is right up your alley. I should also mention that I think the shawl collar design gives it a unique look compared to other sweaters.

    Maybe Greg / Kyle could weigh in with a better explanation of the sweater's hand.

    Thanks for the excellent explanation! That makes a lot of sense. It does look very dense, which is a good thing, because the fabric does not look overly thick. I am close to kopping, for sure.


    Dude, E, that looks really good all the way around. What is the suit? TF? And I am guessing Liverano shirt?

    Yeah TF suit and Liverano BDs. Had to wear my suit unbuttoned after the decadent french dinner consisting of duck confit and a Sazerac. :embar:

    That looks great

    Newc - the Gray knit jacket is exactly as mark described. Medium thickness in a tightly knit stitch. A strong contrast to some of the other Gray pieces with a very thick and more open knit stitch.

    Ok, so now that you got the last L--:foo:--how slim is it really? It seems pretty apparent that sleeves and body are short, but is it really snug? Wondering about M; 38-40 suit.

    I'll throw out the Oliver Spencer Charcoal Knit in Boiled Wool as another option. Love mine and wearing it often.

    I didn't take the L. It is pretty snug. I take a L in Inis Mean and am generally a L or XL and most things. I took a XXL in this but the fit was very good all around it wasn't like the body worked and then the sleeves were crazy long.

    Ah, so then the M is probably truly an S, which would put me into sausage casing territory, not my favorite place to be. Thx for that.

    Yeah, I saw that one as well, and have heard it is quite nice. So many options.
