It ain't that serious. I wouldn't pay to send back or wherever you got it.
It looks a bit loose, they stretch out a bit and you can't keep pulling it down.
Based on that fit it seems you'd be trading 'loose in the midsection' for 'tight in the chest/shoulders'. Whether you size down depends on which you think is worse.
My 2 cents...I think it looks loose in the midsection because the base has to accommodate your butt, so it flairs slightly. Fit looks good to my eye in the second one where this isn't the case. I'd prob stick with the current size if it were me. You could always try rolling the base under to avoid the flaring.
I think my Marked cardi is too big too. Like I mentioned before it is a looser weave, not springy like the Stark knit, and a softer, stretchier wool.
Will size down if I can find another one
On the bright side, I bought a Clay Amalgam cardi to see how it compares... I used to have an SNS bubble knit (Robust crewneck) in the same size as my others and it was very tight on me. I am hoping the Amalgam will fit slightly shorter but otherwise similar to the Stark, which has been a revelation - love, love, love it.
why did it take me so long to pick one of these up??
size small black melange...5'8", 135lbs. from Antik Boutik
small fits well on you. I always thought it would be baggier on someone your size.
That's because he has it unbuttoned. Mine looks amazing unbuttoned like that because it naturally hangs long (and length isn't an issue unbuttoned) and there is no bunching in the middle. If he buttons his up it will look a lot like mine I think.
I always like Slack's fits because he looks like I would have when I was younger if I knew how to dress (or maybe how I would look now if I could stop being skinny fat.)
you think you would look much better in a XS? what are your proportions like anyways?
Maybe there was some miscommunication there. I was saying that my medium looks the same on me as Slack's small looks on him. The only difference is that I have mine buttoned up. When I unbutton my medium, it looks perfect because all the bunching goes away and it fits great in the upper body.
One thing that is really neat about the Stark is that, sizing issues aside, it looks great no matter how you wear it. I like mine unbuttoned, or partially buttoned, or with only the bottom two buttoned, collar up, collar down...it's pretty versatile.
I'm a similar build, but my small melange looks longer on me (could be my torso length)
I might wash it to shrink it down a bit.
Want the black melange so bad, no time to buy before I hit London tho
Maybe I'll find one in a used clothing store
Why would you think it'd fit him baggy?... I'm about the same size and that's how mine fits. People really don't need to be sizing down on the stark... a small will be a slim fit on a 36 chest. IIRC Slack, RKD, tonio, and myself are all in the range of - 5ft7-5ft9 135-150ish 36 chest and all of us fit a small just fine... The only reason you should even consider sizing down is if you're someone our height but with a 40chest or so and a M or L would be too long.
if anyone wants to trade a medium black melange for my medium straight up black i'd be down for that
If anyone has a stark in size S for sale please let me know
If i'm 183 cm tall (6 feet) slim body not athletic about asian medium in uniqlo so small for USA uniqlo, should i go with a small or medium stark ?
