    That marked looks great. Judging by your weight even an xs is probably too big for a lot people here. I'm sure rkd has one and can report back though :D

    My large stark has stretched vertically a few inches since I bought it and is longer than I'd prefer right now. 6'2 175 for reference. Would have gone for a medium due to length if I could do it again. Who has successfully shrunken wool sweaters slightly before? I remember too saying garment bag + wash +\- dry but can't remember details. Help would be appreciated

    seems a lot of people here sized the stark wrong (including me).

    i got the M and i am 6'1" and wore it for 3 months, it has stretched i find it a bit too long (falls at mid crotch level on a pair of jeans, that is approaching sweater dress territory, i hope it doesn't stretch anymore and become even longer but that is unlikely :confused:). if i had a do over i would i have chosen a size S.

    so a rough size guide for the stark (it might seem short at first, but it WILL stretch)

    size M for 6'3"
    size S for 6'
    size XS for 5'9"

    i really recommend you choose the right size, don't be like those fit pics on the webstores where they fold the sleeves cufs up and/or the bottom hem up to make the length shorter, that is just stupid.

    the marked fits larger than the stark, so size down 1 according to your stark size, ex size S stark = size XS marked.

    after this winter is over i think i will sell mine on ebay and pick up a size S for next winter, the perfectionist in me won't accept wearing a too long sweater.

    as for shrinking it, i dunno if you want to risk uneven shrinkage. you can just sell it and buy a new one and it will fit right for certain.

    This is not a definite rule. I wear a large in both the Stark and the Marked. The large Marked fits perfect. I think a lot of it has to do with how tall you are.

    I'm also surprised that the Marked is not more popular here. I greatly prefer it over the Stark. It's my favorite sweater that I own. The weave pattern is incredible.

    Amen

    You do not have to be 6'3" to wear M, I'm 5'11" and M fits perfectly.

    you must have a very long torso and short legs if you fit a M.
    or you are sweaterdress-ing your stark.
    or you are wearing it oversized on purpose.
    or yours haven't stretched yet.

    you should see post #1428, he is 2 inches taller than you and wears a M and is already at 75% crotch level. so where does your stark fall?

    It's nonsense. If you want a shorter cut sweater, get something else, maybe the Amalgam. Stark's proportions are what they are - since 1971 or whatever - it's a long cardigan.

    The problem I find with sizing down too much on SNS is the shoulders. At 5'11 I would gladly wear a small for length but the shoulders are far too binding....added to by the fact that they still use some archaic straight cut shoulder seams. I wear a medium and roll the sleeves a little.

    For the people that have sized down for that tight in the shoulder look, does it stretch any in that area or just length-wise?
