I didn't mean to be a d!ck but type "SNS herning stark" in google images and let me know if there's even the slightest doubt that this is designed as a long cardigan.
I love the extra length, feels like I am wearing princely garb
It's like this, I was on Mr Porter's site and saw the sweater, looked at the photos of the model wearing it and thought "...hey, that's a pretty nice sweater" so I ordered it. Where the bottom lands on the model is about six inches above where it landed on me. I wasn't happy with the length so I returned it and ordered a small elsewhere since Mr P was sold out in that size. Only then did I check this thread out.
EDIT: So another screw up was mis-reading the measurements on Unionmade's site. Didn't have my glasses on and misread the difference in length between the small and medium. Now see that it is only 0.5" so expect that this one will be returned also.
What kind of weather are you guys getting away with in the stark? I finally picked one up but I'm wondering if it's got a very specific window: Nothing in the 40s with wind, nothing in the 60s with sun.
The Mr Porter pictures are deceptive because the entire ribbed section at the bottom of the sweater is pushed up and covered. If the model were wearing it normally, it would be longer on him too, but that's just how the stark is.
Whodini, that range sounds about right to me based on my own experience owning a stark. You could stretch that range out longer if you have a coat that you could wear it under, but I find that the look of the tall stark collar peaking out of a coat isn't to my preference.
I was wearing it this past saturday when we went to plan b (yes) with a v neck underneath, unbuttoned and it wasn't that warm at 50 deg and wind. It's not as warm as people make it out to be if worn casually like that because it's not a tight knit.
So it basically sounds like a great fit for LA f/w. I was worried I'd be limited to a few weeks out of the year for being too warm.
I've got a few loose knits that are good/bad in that sense that they're really not meant for "cold" weather. I never wore a stark for more than a few minutes inside a showroom so I didn't have a feel for how it'd hold up.
I got mine in red, V, so we don't have to look like twinsies when we bro out with Kelv next month.
just googled what that is in celsius.
40 is too cold without a light coat over it, 50s60s on it's own.
Oh, you Canadians.
LA winter is 90% in that window. It sucks in that you can't wear your awesome heavy duty shit but it's great for layering or lighter pieces like this.
we be triplets kelv got his in black melange
ya, if I want something warm I bust out my chunky jil metallic v neck which is like a furnace...stark is just for show my fuckin chest was cold as fuck you would think with all that hair it would be insulated (8)
One serious Danish sword fight coming up.
Complete other side of the world, mate. Auckland, New Zealand. Our winter is similar but quite windy so it feels a bit colder.
I'm foaming at the mouth thinking about it.
You speak English with an accent and use the metric system. All the same to us.
