    i'm 6'4" and slim with a long trunk. I generally go large in most knitwear but picked up an Aran at the store today and had to drop to small - which fits me in sleeves and length pretty much the way it does the model.

    Wow- that’s a huge discrepancy from what I imagined. Is the fabric similar to the donegal fabric of the cardigan?

    All samples are size M. The clothing is designed to fit like it does in the pictures. When we say something is oversized and it looks slouchy on the site as a M, that's what its going to look like. As for measurements, we'll get there but RRR needs proof of concept on this and it's still just me (as should be clear from that fact that I wrote the copy). If we do well, things will improve exponentially.

    Thank you, I totally understand and am not even concerned with sizing charts. I’d generally prefer to just be given some simple advice, like you put in the copy of each piece. I just wanted to make sure that going true to size would give that intended slouch.

    Disagree with this sizing advice. I'm basically the exact same size as you and take large in almost everything and I wear the M.

    The yarn is the same as the nomad, just a different shade. Same for the Hima.

    Lol that makes it more confusing. Most brands have a 50 EU/40 US as a large and a 48/38 medium so when he says TTS...

    @NickPollica what are the models stats? Is he a pretty standard model size? 6'1" 155 lbs with a 38" chest or so?

    Depending on what you're looking for, 180 might still have your size. If not, there is always Magasin and Unionmade.

    @NickPollica I'm 145 lbs, 5'11 and 37" chest - I'm often in between 36 and 38R depending on the cut/brand. The S sold out in the jungle jacket, but you think XS might work?

    I'm bummed was sitting around jerking it waiting for the early access email when the site was live already. Trying to make the most of it.

    Would you take an M or an L in the band collar shirts? I'm a fairly standard 16/35 and grabbed the L but I'm not chasing a super slouchy fit.
