    How do you feel about it? Tried on the purple last fall and wasn't so thrilled. Def a cool look though I don't like it with that white undershirt but I figure you wouldn't wear it like that anyway. Most Prorsum knits aren't that impressive IMO.

    For mid 200 you're probably fine, though may be able to find Dries, Schneider, Raf, Jil which I think are all consistently better than Prorsum ( for knits). Then again my experience is somewhat limited. I think Jet agrees with me though you should consult some other people. Actually now that I think of it the pea colored Prorsum knit I had from ss09 was really awesome it was just a size too big but everything about it was great. So it definitely varies. What piece you looking at Nil? PM me if you don't want to blow your spot.

    I've seen a couple of nice Prorsum knits, but they tend to be really high priced. Dries, Marc, MMM, and Jil are probably my top for consistently nice knits

    It's actually that exact same knit as lmaozedong posted. I've always liked Fair Isle patterns (blame all these Scandinavians I live around) but didn't think it worked with my style but I think I could make the degraded look of this one work.

    Yeah obviously wouldnt wear it with that white undershirt. Either a u neck/tank top/button up underneath most likely. yeah I'm not SUPER impressed by the materials given the price, which is the only reason I'm considering a return (paid $300 gilt credit but I have to get in the mindset that it's real money). Definitely prefer the feel of Jil/MMM/Schneider knits that I've had, though this isn't by any means bad. I mostly like the pattern and fit the prorsum cardi I copped from the sale (which is dope and I'm keeping) was made in China [​IMG] , not that I usually care too much about these things

    Also, mid 200s seems like a fair price for this piece. Cop and we can make matching waywts. just copped those s2a sneaks i think u have[​IMG]

    I'm no sure I could pull this off, but I like the styling. Where is this from?

    I'm 5'8" and owned both the small and the medium pocket sweater. Both fit me, just the medium slightly more oversized look than the small which was a bit more slim fit over a button down. The small hit me just around the waist line on jeans which sit lower, and more just below on medium rise trousers.

    I would also say to go with a small.

    ^thanks for the advice, the main reason that i asked is that i have a much shorter torso than ppl who have the same height. I wear xs in uniqlo tees and they fit just about the perfect length, i would want the sweater to be longer than that but not too long.

    I got it from a friend who grew up in bolivia. It is alpaca, but that's all I know about it [​IMG]
