    Had my camera out so I thought I take a picture and provide a fit. It's a large and I'm 196 cm and weigh about 91 kg.

    XL Stark got here from P&S...fit is MUCH better than the L. A little bit long on the whole, but easily remedied by wearing with 2 or 3 of the bottom buttons undone (as I plan to) or rolling the base ribbing up when completely buttoned. I'm too lazy to take and post fit pics, but count me as another satisfied Stark purchaser.

    Alright, I just searched this thread for "felt" and there were no relevant results. I couldn't pull of a rollover turtleneck but damn, the knit looks awesome from the pictures.

    I've been thinking about getting a fisherman knit and was wondering if anyone knew how the feel of it was? Only thing I found was some people saying that the stark was neither soft nor rough, but nothing on any other knits.

    It's similar to the stark

    It really isn't...but more to the point, 'soft' isn't a useful adjective in this situation.

    The Stark is made from virgin wool. It's not merino, it's not cashmere, it's not a blend...it doesn't feel like something you'd buy at J Crew and using mass market product as a frame of reference, it's not soft by any stretch.

    That said, as I've said elsewhere in this thread, it's not as abrasive as I expected. I actually have a different virgin wool sweater, from J Crew no less, that's actually scratchy to wear. For the longest time, I wore a long sleeve T under it because the scratchiness and density was irritating otherwise.

    To contrast, the Stark isn't that, despite what I expected...it's dense and heavy weight, but not particularly soft--perfect for a cardigan likely to be worn over dress shirts or other items for durability reasons, but totally wearable stand alone over a t-shirt.

    compared to an inverallan, it feels like cashmere.

    I really only wear my stark with a tee


    Although I must admit, when I tried on the black melange, it was noticeably itchier than my burgundy stark

    Compared to Our Legacy it feels like sandpaper. Not really a good argument. The stark and most of the other SNS knits aren't necessarily soft, but are still wearable with just a tshirt underneath

    I can't believe there are no takers on my small Ratio. Spam city, over here.
