ABOUT THE BRAND
For most of us the term 'knitting' evokes images of our mother or grandmother sitting at home in the winter months with a ball of wool and two ancient needles making a clickety-clack sound as they hit against each other as each stitch is produced. Making fine knitwear on a non-industrial, artisan level involves more processes, however the art of stitch-counting, stitch styles through looping and invisible sewing at the joins is no different.
When you then move this up to the levels achieved at the GRP workshops in the Tuscany countryside, the complexities and hand-crafting skills needed are amplified many fold. With decades of experience the artisans and designers at Maglificio GRP appear to work magic with wool as it is ribbed, curved and folded in one piece, creating seamless elements to their garments that ensure maximum comfort for the wearer.
The GRP Knitwear uses a different sizing scale that approximately corresponds to S,M,L,XL. We say 'approximately' because they all fit slightly small. If you are in between sizes, we recommend always choosing the larger size. Jonathan the store owner who is 182cm (6'), chest 102cm (40") and about 75kg - takes a size IV in this brand. The size III is not tiny on him - but the IV gives a more comfortable fit. Usually Jonathan would take a size Medium for most garments including Taylor Stitch.
Hopefully the information below should help you understand which size to choose - if you're unsure, just jump on the chat with us at the button below. Thanks!
