    you could always pretend andrewgreg ;)

    but exactly what Find Finn said, we're all buying these for fashion but they are working men's clothes and some are worn almost like jackets they need to be hard wearing. they are heritage pieces after all.

    lol wut? "clashes with their aesthetic?" You do realize that they've made dropped shoulder sweaters (starting with the fisherman sweater) as long as they've existed, right?

    If you want cashmere get a Cucinelli or a Loro Piana.

    SNS knits may not be soft as a baby's ass, but they're incredibly thick and cozy. I find them more comfortable (and a lot less fragile) than a lot of the cashmere knits I've owned, personally.

    Most people buying SNS because of the knit design. I would got Cucinelli or LP if they have same design. Problem is they don't.

    I was asking if i wish they could use better material. But all you were saying is the original protective function of the sweater, which i already known.

    But again we are not fisherman. And the fisherman today are not wearing the SNS.

    What I meant was that dropped shoulders seem more fashion forward in my mind, while SNS looks classic

    but then again, what do I know about baller knits

    I know what you mean, it was to illustrate why they choose the yarn they do.

    I spend at least two hours a day outside in the climate the knits were designed for and I have been living in heavy knits since September, the only time I wear a coat is in heavy rain, every thing else the knit a vest is more than sufficient.

    SNS is a fisherman working clothes brand. Stop expecting cashmere and fashion forward cuts already. There a plenty of brands catering that segment.

    What's the difference between Apex and Fisherman sweaters in terms of fit? I only notice the collar is different.

    Sounds like a lot of people will be in for a surprise when they unwrap their parcel expecting a soft knit -- you can cut cheese with a fisherman sweater.

    Is 5'8", 140lbs a definite small? I've read that the newer medium fits like a small.
