Superb! Out of interest, how's the fit of this seasons jackets, are they running slim, large or normal?
This jacket is one size larger than my usual size (38R cont vs 36R cont) but I’ve put on a few pounds in the past 7-8 months (mostly in the midsection area) so I’m not sure if I can be a good gauge for the fit.

Fwiw I think the fit is excellent. Keep those extra pounds, lol.

Fwiw2 if I ever consider grabbing the jacket (on heavy discount) it'd be because of your pic. Good job.

If anyone has the chunky cardigan, please post a pic. Model shots are cool, but would love to see it on a non model. Mine should be arriving next week, but I clearly have zero patience.

Also waiting patiently for chunky cardigan pics and sizing advice. I have the KW cardigan which fits well and the measurements from that would put me at a M in the S&M cardigan, however I wear a large in the other S&M merino knitwear (rollneck and cardigans). I am a 40R slim/contemporary in jackets.

Same size and also patiently waiting. From guessing at the pics and specs I suspect the new chunk in medium is not as trim as the L KW. I returned Spier Med cardigans for all larges year ago. Even the Large jersey cardigan is pretty close fitting.

I wish they could have given model measurements and size worn in the photo descriptions.

There’s a member a few pages back that bought a M, he takes 40S in a SC and he says the fit is perfect, but unfortunately no pics. His perfect might be my too slim.

I have ordered a M, the order also contains some pre-order items which won’t ship for a few weeks so that should give me an opportunity to wait and see if some fit pics emerge on here, I will then ask for a size swap if necessary.

The KW is quite slim - I took a large but it is very stretchy.

I had a friend help me stretch out the sleeve length a bit on my L KW brown sweater. It is not a delicate garment.
Saw the ecru in Med was running low on SM so I got one just now. The gentleman earlier said the sleeve length was great for him (40S) so I am hoping mine isn't too short.

I ended up pulling the trigger on the brown houndstooth and the red and black houndstooth to complete the trifector. I have the old green houndstooth from many moons ago so couldn't justify purchasing a re-do. Really curious about the weight difference with this new red and black houndstooth. Also, didn't pay attention, but were these pre-orders or ready to ship?
ready to ship👍 but the website a little strange right now since the new polo sweaters are up as final sale items.
That red and black houndstooth, what is the fabric? website just says wool. I assume with moon that it is a lambswool or a shetland wool tweed? I suppose it could also be merino.
