Sizing is tough. L looks a little too big. M a little to small. What is your feel G? Shoulders/P2P are my problem area! Have an XL in the IHJ-17 if it helps and it is about a 22.5-22.7 P2P.

Ok Forum people, I need some advice.

The wife and I agree that we have "outgrown" our house (well, at least the configuration is quite wrong for us now) and are looking for new options for our family. We are in the "go as big as possible" vs. "Get exactly what we want, but smaller size" argument now.  I guess, we don't want to get something too small and outgrow it too fast with our kiddos (and if we whoops and have a third), but I also don't want to get something too big and always regret buying more house than we need.  My style is smaller, with usable spaces and high end/custom styling. My wife's style is not very particular, but she feels more space is more important.

I guess, I am looking for insight for those of your guys with multiple kids who have found the right balance of space without undertaking something that gets unused...

I know this post is very "american" lol my bad...

Cheers,

Adam

I just more or less went through this. My son is about 17 months old now. When we first had him, it was me, my wife, and my mother, plus a dog, in a tiny townhouse of about 900 sq ft. Before the little guy actually arrived, I thought this would be manageable, but it quickly became clear that it just wasn't going to work once we were faced with the prospect of him running around the house. And with the possibility of a second coming along sooner or later, I knew we needed to make a change more or less immediately.

I've always been the old fashioned type. I love stone farmhouses, etc and always pictured having one. But, looking at the market, the prices, the availability, and the functionality, it just became apparent that it wasn't practical. I see a lot of people suggesting smaller/functional. I am going to go and argue the opposite. Go for something big, new, and while still functional, it should seem like more than you need.

Obviously, everybody's life situation is different, but I'll give you mine. I work enough that I really don't have a lot of spare time. When I come home, I want to spend it with my family, which means I don't have a lot of time to devote to household type activities. I couldn't, as it stands now, keep up with the upkeep of an old home. The new house affords me some security in that everything is solid, new, and won't need any real maintenance (at least by me, I have a small builder who comes out to the house for issues when they arise). As a result, all I really have to do is maintain the yard, about an acre, keep things orderly inside and outside, and deal with cozying up the the place. I can honestly say, that even this is tough with 1 child, a dog, and a wife. Between weekend activities, family gatherings, busy workweek, and weekly errands, it is all I can fit in.

Honestly, nothing makes me feel better than coming home knowing: 1) I can just start hanging out with my family, 2) I have a solid roof over my head the requires little upkeep at the moment, 3) I adequate space for my family to grow, 4) the space I went with gives my son (and additional future kids) places to run, play, and have fun, and 5) both my mother and my dog also have enough space such that everyone can have their own private time if they need, which all do once in a while.

And if there is anything else I leave you with, which I haven't heard mentioned yet, its the old cliche "Happy wife, happy life."

Feel free to PM if you have any questions.

How does it compare with the 18oz?

Any idea about how it might fade?

Medium. I haven't measured it, but it fits bigger, and I would be willing to bet it is more like a recent large. Seems a bit lighter than the newer stuff though.
