Medium. But, fwiw, I don't have a high opinion of the sweater. It's downright uncomfortable to wear; the neck is unbearable at times. And the canvas hasn't softened up so it's still very stiff and pinched at the shoulders. So it's the right size but it never feels like it fits.

Love the jeans, I know they're TF but would you mind sharing the model name/no.?

Now the first thing I did when I got these was bathe them in RIT color remover to fade out the black a little - they were the blackest of black. I'm really happy with the result.

Many thanks for sharing. Surprised to learn they're black! That second photo you posted focusing on the jeans and your boots gives them the appearance of a selvedge navy. Is this just the lighting/colour balance of the photo or the use of the colour remover?

Yes but my martini's still dry.

It's the lighting - they're black. I actually haven't figured out why the black jeans look blue-ish. The color balance on everything else is correct - i used high powered studio flash and balanced the camera to it. I'm wondering if it's the 3% polyurethane reflecting light oddly.
