Very comfortable and well-made

I found my J.G. Glover shawl-neck cardigan to be very comfortable and well-made. My only complaint was that their sizing runs very small, so it took me a couple of tries to find one that fit. I'm a size 44 chest. According to the tags, a size large fit chest sizes 42-44, so, I ordered a large. It fit really well in the collar (16.5 or so) and sleeve (approximately 35.5), but was so tight in the chest that I could barely button it closed, and the sleeves were so slim that they bordered on being too tight. I returned it for an extra large, which fit better in the sleeves (36" or so, and a fuller, less-tight sleeve), but was only slightly roomier in the chest. I ended up with a size XXL (labeled for chest size 50), which is larger than what I wear in almost any brand. The only other brand in which I wear XXL is another British company, so perhaps the difference is simply attributable to U.S. versus U.K. sizing. Similarly, my father, who wears a 42 long sportcoat, had to order an XL. If you buy one, definitely order one at least one size larger than what you normally wear.
