Yeah, I'm having a hard time figuring out sizing. The XXL measurements for these are roughly the same as the XL measurements on some of the wool sweaters. Maybe they're sized smaller since cotton doesn't hold its shape as well over time as wool? And they're factoring in that it will get stretched out over time?
Yeah, that's the only explanation I can come up with as well. If I have to size up I'm going to have to skip it. My usual size is already a bit too long in the body. Definitely don't need the added length of the next size up.

Fair enough. I would wear a sweatshirt on it's own and with a collared shirt as well. More preppy style.
Either way, I'm not complaining.

I just had a look at the new drops, yeah I don't understand the sizing on the cotton crewnecks either. But damn, they're dropping FIRE stuff.

I like the look of the cotton crewneck.

Edit - Spier needs to come back to the thread and explain things!
Agreed. I especially like the colors on the cotton crewnecks. Nice to finally get a beefier mid gray sweater that works for layering. The olive looks good as well.

Same here. I'm loving the look and colors of the cotton crewnecks; plus, I just prefer cotton sweaters to wool anyway, but I'm too lazy to deal with a return in the likely event that I get sizing wrong.

Just received the knit dress shirt. Fabric feels nice and lightweight- almost identical to the LS polos. Fit is also in line with other dress shirts.
Have one in my cart but a little concerned about shrinkage in body length and appearance after wash. Pls keep us posted.

That olive cotton crewneck, at 58US, is the deal of the season. That sweater with denim and boots...

PS--fit chart for the cotton crew is the same as fit chart for the merino cable crews. Rick indicating charts may be off. Fit for merino and cotton will be close, but cotton will fit a bit tighter due to material

It does look good. But may hold off. WFH until March, all I wear currently is workout clothing. I'll possibly visit the store after my vacation. But since Mike is no longer on the floor. The in person experience is nowhere close to the same.

Nice, the chart appears to have changed now. That's good news. They really need to start double checking to make sure the size charts are correct before putting products up for sale, though. I have purchased multiple items in the past that ended up fitting nothing like I expected due to incorrect charts as well.

I didn't realize they have chunky wool cardigans now! Does anyone have one from last year? Is it truly chunky? What is the sizing like? In the past with SM stuff, the arm length has been a bit short. What size cardi should I get for 6'2 and slim? Lastly, does any one have any pics of the cardigans?
