HINTS AND TIPS
North Sea clothing offers an extensive range of sizes in order to provide you with the most comfortable fit.
If you are unsure of your size, take a soft tape measure, and measure (in inches) around your chest, at your underarm, and this will give you your N.S.C size. If you prefer a loose fit, we suggest you order a size up. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any queries regarding style, fit or sizing.
THE COTTON SUBMARINER
The fit of this cotton jumper is different to the Wool Submariner. The cotton version features an INSET SLEEVE for a streamline fit (rather than the drop shoulder of the wool version).
The roll neck is slightly WIDER fitting (to reduce the cotton ‘wearing’ against any possible stubble), and the body length is slightly LONGER than the wool version.
Wool and cotton behave differently whilst being worn, and also when washed.
This jumper can shrink a little in length when washed at 40 degrees. It can also be pulled back into shape while damp. The cotton will ‘give’ more whilst being worn. Wool, better retains its shape.
COTTON EXPEDITION MK 2
The fit of this shawl collar jumper is the same as our Wool version of the Expedition Mk 2, which itself, differs slightly from the Expedition Mk 1.
This Mk 2 version has a wider neck opening and a slightly more generous shawl collar than the Mk 1 version. The fit of the jumper body remains the same in both Mk1, Mk2 Wool and Cotton versions.
COTTON ENGINEER MK 2
The fit of this jumper is the same as the wool version of the Engineer Mk 2.
