    I wouldn't call the sizing odd - some models are cut a bit different.

    SNS tends to run slim (rather size up than down) and long (especially cardigans and the newly released or rereleased stuff). And I have never encountered the sleeves being too short, and finding sleeves that are long enough is generally a problem for me.

    But it would be a lot easier giving some sort of advice, if we spoke about the specific model. Naval for instance is cut shorter than many SNS models, so if that is what you base you knowledge on, then it doesn't give a fair representation.

    Like I have said before, I have a lot of SNS knits, and I have access to a lot of different models just by living in Denmark (in Herning at the moment actually).

    Sorry to bump this thread, but I'm interested in picking up the Stark cardigan. Seems like sizing is a bit tricky with these. I'm 5"10, and 155lbs, and I'm debating between the Small and Medium.

    I like to wear things more fitted, but I'm worried the small is going to be tight and uncomfortable. Can anyone help me out with sizing? I don't believe there are any places in Chicago that carry SNS, so unfortunately I won't be able to try one on before buying.

    I am 6'3, 200lbs, about a 44 chest and I got an XL. I usually wear L in shirts and XL in outerwear. It was fairly snug on my arms and in the chest, but not bothersome at all. With that said, it was a bit longer than I had expected, but didn't both me one bit. Here is a fit pic for reference:

    Hmm....thanks for the fit pics. Still can't decide between a medium or small.

    Also, is the stark cardigan pretty hard to pull off? Again, I've never seen one in person, so it's hard to tell how "loud" the stitching pattern is.

    It def has character, but it isn't loud in any way.

    I'd like to see some of the SS10 pieces modeled.

    Do any shorter peeps on the board own a Stark cardi.
    I am 5'6 and was wondering if the small or medium would be too long on me.

    Medium would probably be too long, depending on the look you wanted. If it helps, I am 6', 150 lbs, 38" chest and have a small Stark which is a slim, comfortable fit and covers my hips. As a few people have mentioned, the knit stretches so it doesn't feel constricting by any means. I might have gone for the medium, and slightly looser fit, but my shoulders are fairly narrow.

    Just tried on a few of the FW09 pieces at Winn Perry. They really are excellent in all ways, especially the Naval Hoodie and the Stark Cardigan. I'm 6'3"/175 and large fits me great. I'd agree they are TTS, with a slim body. Also, long. I'm tall and the bodies run on the longer side--not too long, or sloppy, but def not cropped shorter.

    Stick with medium imo.
    I wear a large and I´m 6´3, 34 waist, 44 chest and more like 19+ shoulders. It was very snug from the beginning, but stretched out nicely. I think a XL would have felt too big and long after a bit of wear. But ofcourse, thats a matter of taste.
    I also have a their thin merino cardigan (very recommended) but had to get a XL in that one.


    This is good to hear. I'm about the same size as you two, although a little skinnier than Bobo, and I have a L Naval on its way to me. I've been wondering if it's going to be too large. I'll report back once it arrives.

    Quite a lot of girls are wearing the Stark here in Denmark - you can get it in XS and XXS too.
    So you can definitely wear a Stark too, but it depends on the fit you fit. It isn't going to be short on you.

    I just went to see the SS10 collection and there are some surprising things in the collection along with some stables. Really, really nice.

    Aside from Denmark, is there any place w/ XS stock of the Stark? I too am 5'6" and so S looks like a no go for me

    TONS of SNS Herning here, and they take out VAT when shipping to the States, making the end price roughly the same as TBS:

    Might be a few XS.


    Nothing in XS, but thanks for the link - hadn't found that site yet

    Well, here is the L Naval on me. It's not quite skin tight like most Breton-type sweaters I've seen worn. And, it's about as long as I could stand to wear (these things are long!). OPinions on the fit? Keep or sell? I won't be able to find another in this color in M, that's for sure. [​IMG] Honestly, I think it fits me well, but could stand to be a tiny bit smaller. Maybe not worth sizing down...
