1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Looks good. How is it unbuttoned? I just got the 60% Acrylic shawl cardigan and the collar looks like shit. These are coming in mail next week though.

    Let us know how they turn out jet. I'm also thinking of copping. I like the extra fine merinos but want something a little warmer.

    I sent back my medium chunky cardigans. Larges arrive tomorrow but I don't have high hopes of them working out.

    Lambswool feels a little bit softer than last season's, but not even close to the EFM. I bought a speckled crewneck in my usual sweater size (same as slim-fit shirts, one up from regular shirts), and the fit is good. Haven't tried the cardis so good luck.

    Just got two of the patchwork flannels in today. I sized down one and it fits fantastic, although I wanted a more fitted look so ymmv. Plenty of room in the shoulders. For reference I'm 5'8, take a 38 in jackets and a medium in the slim fit oxfords.

    Washed and tumble dried my flannels, shrank in length just enough to look normal. Not sure how much, maybe an inch. The shoulders/upper back shrank a bit too which I was hoping to avoid. Not tight though, just a bit snug. That part will probably stretch out though.

    How does it feel? On the fence for it, but the soup of materials is scaring me a bit.

    What is your chest size and what size did you get? I like the first one, I'm wondering if I should purchase it from the website

    ^ I wear a size 39–40L. I got a large.


    They all feel decent to me. Maybe I'm less discerning, but they feel similar to some cotton/wool blend knits I have and aren't scratchy or uncomfortable. The shawl collars feel less substantial than the turtleneck, which seems a tiny notch above the others quality wise. I'm going to return the shawl collars.

    Thanks, the turtleneck and the cable shawl look interesting. Might try them out.
