    One more test, if you're still pondering anyway. Don't pull it down to max length but let it rest naturally. Then bend forward and check profile. I did this with an IM Aran in L and the fabric (albeit merino/cashmere mix) bulged out enough to hide a basketball in there. In layman's terms, I looked like being pregnant, last quarter. There is a lot of stretch in the Aran. Is the Gansay the same, or is the wool less flexible?

    :)

    That would be an interesting exercise. I've occasionally wondered about those guys who have a uniform. I don't think I could stick to it...

    @FrankCowperwood

    I like the way that Bulls Wool looks/fits on you. That is an M, right?
    Had ordered two sizes but prefer the M from the pics. Plus, an L is more like 1 1/2 sizes larger, the biggest jump in width in the range (with 3+"), wonder why...

    Yes. It is the M. I've been a M in Inis across the board. I like the trim fit.

    It has to be said, trim fit does not work on everyone (or many), but you really vindicate it. You must be tall. And healthy. Your fits manage to look svelte and strapping at the same time.

    Edit: did I just come on to you? Didn't mean to.

    With sprout on this. Trim doesn't always look ideal, but when it does it beats roomy any day.

    Just one, how is the stretch on the bulls wool? I suppose less than on the standard IM merino/wool mix?

    I don't know, I feel like the bulls wool will probably "wear in" pretty well.

    You don't wear bulls wool, bull's wool wears you. (Has that been said already?)
    It's rainy today. Perfect day to order some ties online if you know what I mean.

    Can we talk about Spring 2015? [​IMG]

    sorry for crappy photos...I really am trying to improve

    Here are a few shots of the Bull Wool fit. My personal take is that fit is pretty good but I am concerned the sleeves are too long and bunched. Would love some honest opinions though

    Looks like it's bunching in the chest as well. You may want to size down if the smaller size is still available.
