Sounds like Mr. Porter UK site
Oops Mr. Porter sorry about that
Was in white/cream...and now sold out.
if someone here bought it and it doesn't work out, please pm.
Just putting out an interest check, I have a Large BNWT Stark in Navy. I'm not really looking to sell (will entertain offers), but will possibly trade for new or near new Engineered Garments outerwear. Shoot me a PM if you are interested
yeah i was about to buy and I checked right after your comment and it had already been sold.
thanks for the info though
Good deal on a small navy stark on Fuk (not mine):
Just got my stark. Even with a thin buttoned shirt underneath it immediately started to bother me. Anybody tried any of the wool softening methods on one yet?
Really want a marked cardi.
Mine was itchy at first too, but give it a few wears and it'll soften up
I have sensitive skin and usually find wool to be very itchy. I am able to wear my Stark with only a thin t-shirt underneath without any problems. Perhaps it varies from sweater to sweater.
Aight, my Stark got here. I was slightly concerned it would be too scratchy since it's virgin wool. It struck me less as scratchy than simply coarse and not necessarily soft. I was also surprised by the heft of the thing and the weave is even more impressive looking in person. Pretty awesome stuff.
As I feared though, it's pretty slim. I went with the L and only after the fact did I notice the chest measurement of 41" in the L.
I'm 6'3", 215, 45" chest and the L fits thusly. This is going back regardless, but given how snug the L is, is the XL likely to fit me or am I relegated to XXL?
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Do you normally order size L stuff? I wouldn't think a 45 chest would be a large in much of anything. I'm 50 lbs lighter and 6" smaller in the chest and I can almost wear a large (but a M is perfect.)
If you like a slim fit and want to get it perfect...maaaaybe a XL would work, but you might have to return it for a XXL. If you want to play it safe, go for an XXL because a slightly oversized sweater will always be better than an undersized one.
Yeah, I'm a L in pretty much everything, but I tend to wear stuff slightly slim though (eg, wear 44 suit).
Leaning towards an XL...I'd feel kinda weird having a double X anything in my closet. :-x
