There have been some questions about fit on the Chunky Cardigan, so I thought I would post my experience as I ordered in both the SMALL and MEDIUM.

I wear 38R contemporary sports coat. I'm 173cm (5 foot 8?) and around 75kg (165lbs?)

Because they are so chunky, I think it's all about preference. The first pic is the MEDIUM and the second is the SMALL. I went with the SMALL.

Oof, I'm the same height and weight as you, though I wear a 40R from S&M (I was told my shoulder is closer to a 38, but overall a 38 OTR just wouldn't fit.) Just exchanged my L cardigan for M, hopefully it works out.

Wow body proportions is fascinating. The 38 fits fairly well with only mild tailoring. I do wish the shoulders would be 1/4 inch narrower.

Based on that, I think the medium would work for you if you wear 40.

Got my cardigan in, this thing is T H I C C. It reminds me of wearing a blanket. Fit is honestly perfect for me- this is a small, I wear a 38R contemporary jacket, and I’m 5’11”/34.5” sleeve/15” neck/32” waist/160 lbs. Dressed down with an S&M t shirt (medium):

Also, while the navy isn’t a “deep/almost black navy”, it’s still definitely not just a darker blue. And the buttons aren’t subtle, but they’re not as comically large in person as I thought they would be.

Do you have any fit pics?

this seems like a weird AOL chatroom convo...


I'm a XXL in the polos, and would imagine kints as well. I was instructed to take an XL in the chunky cardigan, so I'm a little surprised to hear you went with an L.
All right, a fellow member of the fully-growed-up-boy club?! I am an XL in the polos and L with most other garments. The L sweater on me feels a touch roomy all over, and there's even some extra material around where the raglan sleevehead attaches onto the body. The thing weighs like ten pounds and feels like you are holding a coil of rope when you pick it up.

Interestingly, an L looks shorter on me than an M does on some taller guys; I think it's because with the raglan shoulders, my width up there hikes it up a bit.

FOMO on the cardigans. All these pictures made me realize that I should have gotten one. Fingers crossed that someone returns a small in the cream colour

Anyone know if denim western snap shirts are coming out too? I think I remember Rick saying they would be but maybe they are seeing how the plaid ones sell.

I am 40 slim SC, 6'1" 160ish lbs and went with medium. I could use the small size chest and it would be perfect but was afraid of the sleeves being too short. Medium is just a bit wide in the chest but I will live with it.
FYI they are 42L (ligne) buttons agains the 36L buttons on the kent wang. Measured today.

Took delivery of the cardigan! So happy I went it Small. Amazing feel with some weight but so soft and not as itchy as my Northern Watters one

So you both took your normal size or sized down?
