These are absolute beauties--Christmas gifts for my father, which unfortunately didn't fit, so his loss is your gain! The quality on these is really excellent, both are a hefty 100% pure Scottish wool with ribbed cuffs and crew collar. Both BNWT. The Drakes website lists sizes for brushed Shetland, with the L as 44 and other measurements posted there. (Shetland sold!) The fair isle is an XL, but a slimmer cut than the Shetland, with the size identical to the Shetland across the chest and just a hair wider at the waist, as in the comparison pic. For reference, I wear an XS in most Drakes sweaters, but a S in the fair isle. Color on the fair isle is right, the blue is a shade lighter than in the photos. 10% discount for both. Shipping CONUS only.
