Can someone give me a P2P on their new season Great Sweat, ideally in Small but any size will do for interest.

Oi Polloi were listing a P2P of 24" on the Small Laughing out loud . I emailed, asking them to take a proper measurement, and they came back with 22" Laughing out loud Puzzled

I'll do my L when I get back, however I tried on every size from S to XL, I could not get my arms into the small let alone onto my body, so be aware of that.

If the Zoo Village measurements are accurate it's working out that a size Small would have a P2P of 21.6".

If a Small is 21.6" P2P then it's hard to see how they fit smaller than last season, unless the shoulders have been narrowed up alot. I think a trip to Oi Polloi is in order.

Thanks HW.

OK my magic purple old great sweat is
P2P = 24" total length = 27"

new large
P2P = 23.5" total length = 27"

so basically the same fit. Although I am beginning to think this old XS is an error in manufacturing.

so a small could be 42" chest considering L = 47".

uniqlo small (washed) = 21.5" P2P and 24.5" length.

I'd advise trying OL on if possible. Have a feeling you could pick up two Ls in the same item and the fit could be different.

Obviously living in london makes it easier, but it was worth the £8 train fare + £22 trying / liberty additional money to get the correct size.

I would have prob gone for medium, which would be fine with just a t-shirt, but for the classic undershirt / oxford / sweatshirt look you need a bit more room.

for the record, I asked tresbien about the new sweats and they said: "The sleeves are more slim in particular but also the garment in general." Judging by HW's measurements this sounds like an understatement. 27" back for a L is definitely a lot smaller than before - last season's grey in a M is 27.75".

arms are slim, no question of that. 27" is max more like 26.75" really.

I sent the same email to OL as well as tresbien. They said: "fit is the same as before.. we have added more details slightly changed the waistband a stitch style to make them more authentic.. i would size up this season, as they have been washed and come up a tad smaller.."

the xs i just got is a bit tight along the sleeves, also shorter and slimmer in body too. going to order a small to size up a bit, and see how that comes up, so if anyone wants the xs before i most probably back it in a couple of days, pm me. better feel and colour than last seasons.
