Wrap a measuring tape around your head. Not too tight.
Give your measurements to one of our customer service specialists or use the chart above to determine your best fit.

How to get a really good fit:
First and foremost, if you have any questions about size, call customer service at 888-436-1031. We have actual garment measurements for every item and we’ll be happy to help you find the perfect size.

Measure yourself with a tape measure using the instructions below. (Or have a friend do it. Serve sangria, as a bribe.) Jot down your measurements and compare them with the body measurement sizing charts found below
and on each product page.

HAT: Measure circumference of your head where a hat would naturally rest (normally above the brow).
WAIST: Measure around your natural waist or, if you prefer, a little lower, where you may actually wear your pants.
NECK: Measure the circumference of your neck. (Add a little for your Adam's apple.)
SEAT/HIP: Standing, with feet together, measure around the fullest part of the hips. Don't cheat.
CHEST/BUST: Measure around fullest part, but with tape under your arms.
You'll need a friend to do this for you. (More sangria.)
INSEAM: Use a well-fitting similarly styled pair of pants. Lay them flat, with seam on seam.
Measure from crotch to bottom of hem.
ARM/SLEEVE LENGTH: Your arm must be slightly bent to do this correctly. Then, measure from center back of your neck, over the shoulder, down the arm, past the elbow (slightly bent) all the way to wrist. (Your friend may be needed for this too.)
"FOR MEN AND WOMEN": What does that mean? They're men's sizes, in fact.
On women, these items will be attractively oversized; sleeve length will be long.
TALL: All of the measurements are the same as the Regular Size, but we’ve added 1” to the sleeve length and 2” to the body length.


Writer’s Retreat Cardigan

You’re spending days holed up in a simple seaside shack as summer turns to fall, hard at work on the Great American Novel. That’s the dream, at least. Maybe you’re out grilling hot dogs. Either way, this is the ribbed cotton sweater you want to be in. Knit with marled yarns that give the fabric a mottled, heathery hue, featuring a perfectly autumnal wine-and-bread color combo, it has just the right mix of sweet-grandpa and inspired-poet vibes, and is equally indispensable whether worn over a t-shirt or a classic button-down. Classic fit. 100% Cotton. Faux horn buttons. Machine wash. Imported.

Writers Retreat Cardigan Review

I purchased this cardigan as a Christmas gift for my son and he loves it. It wears nicely and the color is super versatile, can be paired with jeans, khakis, gray or black pants, you can dress it up or dress it down. The colors are also more rich in person than the website photos show. All in all a really nice product and made for a great gift.

Great cardigan

Great quality and material. Gave as a gift - was a big hit. Seems to run a little small, though. Bought the L, but fit more like a M/L.

Comfy Sweater

Nicely styled & constructed sweater, properly sized. Interesting weave pattern in shell. Great color for Fall wear out on errands, to theater or keeping warm while relaxing at home. But, I do sort of miss a couple of lower front pockets! Actually hasn't been cool enough yet to wear the thing -- but soon .... Very prompt delivery, well packed for shipment.
