Selecting your size online can be a bit tricky, especially for a first order. But by following our advice you should be able to make the right choice for your purchase, like over 94% of our customers. Otherwise, no worries: we can advise you personally and ultimately you will still be able to exchange your piece if the size isn’t right.

Tip: take your usual size. If you like it more fitted, take a size smaller knowing that knits usually loosen slightly once worn. The tolerance for the size indicated on the size guide can be +/-2cm or +/-1in.

Merci merci!

Gorgeous and cozy

Love the style and feel of this sweater. I feel very stylish wearing it; it is so warm and cozy! I do wear a long-sleeve shirt underneath because it is too itchy to wear right next to the skin. I got the mottled blue and love the navy/white mix. I ordered a medium and it does work, but a large might have given me a nice more oversized look. I am 5'6" with a somewhat longer torso so it falls just below my hip. Usually a US size 8/L, chest 39", waist 32", hip 38". So I was on the cusp between M and L. Next time I would do a video consult with the staff. Great communication with the L'Envers staff throughout. Can't wait to buy my next piece :)

My dream sweater

The George in mottled blue was on my wishlist for over a year before I bought it for my birthday. I was thankful that it was still available for purchase after all that time -- such is the beauty of slow fashion! After I placed my order, there were some production delays, but the L'Envers team kept me updated instead of leaving me wondering where my order was. This sweater was well worth the extra wait. It's sturdy and very warm, perfect under a jacket in deep winter (I live in the Upper Midwest USA, near Canada). I also love wearing it at a standalone jacket on warmer days. The wool is a little itchy but not overly so, and I never notice its rough texture when I'm wearing it over a long-sleeve shirt. And I just love the silhouette of this piece -- it's chic and practical, and easy to pair with many things in my closet.


Waouh!!! Première pièce commandée chez l'envers et ça ne sera pas la dernière. La qualité et les finitions sont juste incroyables. Merci de nous proposer d'aussi jolies pièces qui soutiennent l'artisanat. En plus coup de coeur absolu pour ce modèle si classe et facile à porter.


I am over the moon with my Black George Wool Cardigan. When I reached out with a sizing enquiry their customer service replied quickly and could not have been move helpful, even offering a video consultation on any other questions I might have. The item arrived beautifully packaged and is a pleasure to wear.
