That kind of length would bother me.
Sir, how warm is that bull's wool, on a scale from 1 to 11?
at this time it is not. I think @Newcomer needs to return that L! I've changed my mind on my fit preference for him
I'm a bit OCD about shoulders, but those are too big for you. I personally like the shoulder seam of the sweater, when there is one, to hit about where my shirt shoulder seams hit, at the bend of the shoulder. The sweater goes beyond that point at the shoulder. Coupled with the too long arms, it just makes the sweater look ill-fitting and not "manly baggy" as you might prefer (which is to say that I wouldn't mind the extra room in the chest if everything else is ok). I agree with AC, you should size down.
Drake's has so many beautiful pocket squares this season and I think the wool/silk mix really fantastic. Might NMWA's stock on those go up soon (and I hope you have many of them).
FWIW, I think the medium looks better on Newcomer as well. And I am being objective, as I am a size medium.
Hey Ryden, my large fits similar to that. And while I would / may wear it (may keep both), I think the size down looks better with the gansey look.
Yup - they're coming
I think you should return the L
If it helps people become more objective, if I return either the M, or the L, there are a line of people who get it first haha.
Ryden, you'd definitely want to at least cuff the sleeves. But I agree with the others that moving down a size would be best.
@DeSense Ha Ha I take all compliments and I'm flattered. Thanks.
I have to agree with you and @sprout2 that a trim fit is certainly not always the answer or even the preference. I do like how this works for me for Inis Meain. Good job Greg!
@in stitches We can most certainly assume that the tingly feeling is NOT the result of a shellfish allergy presenting. Totally NMWA associated.
And @rydenfan, so that's the XL in the sweater? I agree it looks too big. You might roll those sleeves, but I think it would be a little unwieldy then. If Newcomer returns that L, then I think that's your sweater. Get that notify me setting punched into your account.
Frank - That is correct.
Ryden - I also say size down. If not available, just cuff the sleeve like unbel said. I have a few sweaters I do that with.
I agree. Compare with where the shoulder seam on the same sweater hits Frank in post #13979.
thanks guys! i really appreciate the time and feedback.
i was too distracted by the wallpaper sorry
And honestly Ryden, although the XL is not perfect... I do not know if I would necessarily return it. It is going to be a fun sweater just to beat the hell out of.
