    I'm not an advocate of sizing down but the L might be a slightly better fit hard to tell from the pic.

    Looks to me you should at least try to size down.

    Well he actually technically sized up as he is normally a 50-52. Given all that he's said about how he thinks SNS should fit, the fit is what he wants. I'd take tts though

    Sizing on the new Fisherman mélange knits? TTS? Or, size up like in the new Stark? I'm a L in the new Stark, but a M in most knits.

    I've never liked the drop shoulder on those...

    I don't mind it, but I think there may be excess bunching at the pits.

    While definitely not soft, the wool is not as razor sharp as others seemed to suggest :rolleyes:

    VLSI yes a touch too big, think you'll be ok sizing down one.

    I just ordered the L in the purple melange stark. I hope it's not too big. The medium black melange from last year is too big for me. I may be selling them both soon but they didn't have a M in the purple so took a chance.

    VLSI i think it looks good.

    do people not like "old fit" starks anymore? tons of good deals on B&S in great colours go at em people
    owned mine for a year and it is still one of my favourite pieces (black melange).

    orly. Have you ever looked at real workwear? Nearly everything is cut with dropped shoulders. The classic hooded sweatshirt jacket, for example, is cut with dropped shoulders, a larger body, and shorter arms, to accomodate multiple layers underneath it, and for ease of motion. If you've ever done outdoor manual work in a cold environment, you'll find very quickly that what you really want is a minimum of 3 layers - the first a tight to the skin, thermal baselayer, then something bulky, then something like a parka that has some space between the body and jacket, so that there is a bit of trapped warm air. Of course, you want it to be easily and readily cinched at the waist, neck, and wrists, because freezing cold wind going up your back is not pleasant.

    What size? Doesn't look big. There's some room but the fit is good.
