    Definitely not. Just wear it oversized.

    A lovely mottled mix, prurient. How't the knit -- give or no give, thick yarns or thin?

    How is the linen? It thin or thick?

    Medium weight. Keeps you warm on a cool evening Spring through early Fall, but you don't over heat wearing it indoors. Wrinkling is not bad as far as linen goes.

    Definitely different from the other "x Frans Boone" donegal I own. Slightly thicker yarn and overall substance. Probably half way in terms of looseness between the other crewneck I just mentioned and the shawl collar jacket/cardigan I got from the Bureau (which is grandpa loosely knitted).

    Would this sweater look OK with a more oversize fit, or should I just do regular/relatively form-fitting? I'm a small or medium depending on the brand, and it sounds like a IM small would be perfectly fine for me. Could cop said small. Another SFer offered to sell his M, though, so I'm not sure what would be better (5'8" 155, broadish shoulders):

    What's your chest size. I think most of the Mediums are for a 40" chest. If you're a 38 you probably want to go small.

    Sorry meant to include that. Yeah I'm a 38. I figured I should go small, but wasn't sure given my smedium sizing tendencies and the dimensions listed on the site.

    disagree. If you're a 38, go medium.

    I'm a 40 and I take a large or xl. Depending on the knit it's sometimes oversized but most knits like fine slightly oversized.

    I'm 42-43 and wear L consistently in Inis Meain. A typical 38 is S in Inis Meain. Some if the Aran / cable knit styles fit tighter on first wears but relax over time.

    Dammit, I had a nice consensus going on the small. Now look what you've done.

    Aschup, you can always have any knitwear with seams altered for that form-fitting look. It's the shoulder-to-shoulder seam you'll have to think about carefully.

    Either will fit, it just comes down to how you like your knits to fit.

    39" chest, and always a medium. Sometimes, they come up a little short on me, though.

    I'm 5'10 155-160 38 and always a M in everything and I had to return my M crewneck to Superdenim for a L.

    I got 2 crewnecks that are hand-washable. Would it be safe to machine wash them? Have any of you tried?

    I'm a 38 and usually purchase S from them. Although I recently bought a medium henley from CCC and find it quite baggy in the arm pits, which could be a style preference, but not one I like.
