    Only if you're eating outdoors. During a storm.

    Whew. darn "savages"...

    I am hoping Brown/Green Bull wool gansey and Charcoal Aran button neck in Small will do wonders this time. If not....then fark I need to find a body/arms stretching service....

    or hoping for the wool to stretch overtime around the chest area...

    What is your usual size? I am a small 40, and my M fits perfectly over just a tee. If you are on the larger side of 40, or intend to wear it over a shirt, L would probably work.

    Thanks. I'm similar, a small 40; large 38. M on most items. I think L would be too loose in the chest for me , even over a shirt. But I appreciate your help! :)

    I've had a couple of stinky Irish sweaters - I think that the wool is minimally processed (or at least processed in such a way that less lanolin is removed) - leaves the wool very water resistant and w/ a nice gamy smell....:nodding:

    Greg is a city boy. Pretty much it smells the way most wool sweaters smell. And it's only scratchy if you would describe your skin as "baby soft."
