I think it would look better if it were a touch fuller, NOBD.
It's an odd cut. The shoulders are too large, but the rest is slim.
My doubt is in the shoulder area, Victor.
What would you like fuller, D?
would go for the next size up, but it doesn't look bad as is. Is there plenty of room?
Enough room for a Stark underneath, I think.
Next size up:
That really felt too large in all dimensions. It'll either be this one or I have to go on a search again...
i like the one in the original pic. looks good.
I was referring to the body, as it seemed quite tight (not enough room to layer a sweater and comfortably move around), but perhaps it's just that picture. You noted that you can layer a Stark, after all. The next size up seems a touch too big. Between the two, I would go with the second, but I don't think either is that great.
I like how the next size up looks tbh but both look pretty good.
I wouldn't worry about the shoulders, it fits nicely there IMO.
Can anyone refer me to someone who can do invisible mending? I found this, but it might be nice to deal with someone in the States, just for ease of shipment. I'm looking to have a sweater repaired, but my usual source isn't taking any more orders until March.
anybody have the PRL 5 pocket cords?
I was looking for an inexpensive pair to try out, and these seemed to fit the bill. How do they fit, longevity, etc?
You mean reweaving? There is Alice Zotta and French American Reweaving in NYC. If you search for "reweaving", you might find others.
There is a place near Union Square in NYC (Superior Weaving and Mending?) that did exceptional work for me. Could not find the tear after they finished the job.
I have a couple pair, construction is nothing special, but sturdy enough. Fit is pretty much a comfortable straight fit leg, small wale.
I'm tying these out this year:
Seemingly better construction, button zip, split waist band. Looking forward to them.
If they haven't changed them since last year, then I have these in whatever they're calling dark brown.
I probably wear them once every week or two in the autumn, not so much during the summer. They're warm, but not overly, and quite soft. Mine are tagged 32x30, but measure about 33x31, which isn't too bad for mass produced clothing, I guess. They work fine for my purposes (office, driving, errands, piddling about around the house, etc.).
Many thanks! I'll give those a try.
