    I have a few SNS pieces, and this is something that disappoints me as well. The seams are sewn together, instead of knitted, and quite bulky. They seem to hold up pretty well, though.

    I wore my Stark for its initial outing today, and dang is it ever comfortable. Big fan so far.

    I wish I'd read the first 50 pages of this thread before I ordered my Stark because I probably would have gotten a small. When I tried on the medium at Unionmade it seemed to fit well (no slack, shoulder seams were in the right position, arm sleeves were snug). But I see now that the knit is actually very elastic. Oh well, I'm still pretty happy with the medium. For reference I'm 5'8, 170lbs. Size 38 in jackets, usually wear medium slim shirts, waist is 32.

    I got the Black Lake coloring when it was on sale at Gentry. I couldn't resist a Stark at $240 and free shipping. I like this color a lot actually. In addition to the white there's also green threads when seen up close. Tons of texture on this thing.

    FWIW I live in SF and I've never seen a Stark in the wild (outside of stores of course).

    I'd try to stretch the sleeves a bit, Albert.

    Medium looks borderline too tight—I might have sized up to large, actually. No way small would work for you.

    Would uncuff the sleeves, too.

    Oh, whoops, didn't notice that he cuffed the sleeves. That should fix it. Agreed on the sizing in general.

    Sizing is pretty non-uniform in general. The two I have are both from Notre and ordered about a month apart. Both larges, but the metallic forest L is way smaller than Navy L.

    Sizing aside, they make some incredible knits.

    Starks on sale at Gentry for a nice price.

    .... I am 185 6'1, should I get XL in Stark and XL in Fisherman? Is Torso sized the same as Fisherman?

    porkier than a bag of pork rinds--maybe 10-12 pounds more corpulent than when I found SF.

    yet somehow still wearing uniqlo M shirts.

    You'd probably be fine with a L. I'm 5'11 and 200 lbs and I wear a large. The fit is a bit slim but it works better than sizing up to XL would have.

    I am 6'1 220 and wear a large... the XL was too big and sloppy looking on me. The Large at relaxed and is way better.

    6' 1" 167lbs and XL Stark is perfect, to add another data point

    Haven't tried Fisherman but am guessing I'd be an L.

    I second this, at 6'3" 175.

    Fisherman works best if you have an athletic build--broader shoulders, tapering to slimmer waist (relatively speaking). If you are barrel chested or have a little more in the middle, you will find them very form fitting, and sizing up will sloppy--not to mention the arms will be absurdly long (they are already long, and almost always folding the cuff)

    How much stretch does the Stark have? I felt like the L fit better than the XL but was slightly snug across the chest. Can I expect it to relax and conform?
