I'm thinking about picking up a Dale of Norway sweater online but having a bit of an issue trying to pick a size as there are no local retails to try one on at. I'm 5'10, 130lbs, and wear a size 15 1/4 dress shirt with 19 inch sleeves (measured armpit to end). I typically need a small for the width and a medium for length (body and sleeve). Any suggestions on what size to go with and how they typically run? Thanks.

camhabib, I'm your height but heavier, wearing a size 42 suit. My Dale sweater is an XL and is a nice fit on me - a slightly roomy (in a flattering way, not oversized-looking) fit up top, and adequately snug at the hips. Lengthwise it comes to just below the pocket openings or rivets of a pair of jeans.

I am going to *guess* that going down a size from me, from XL to L, would be the best bet for you.
