Inverallan 3A Cardigan Group Order (CLOSED) - Page 27

post #391 of 699
Wait, what's this about tracking numbers now? I checked my spam box as well and nada. If we didn't get one Z, should we assume our particular sweaters are still waiting to be shipped?

"OK, so I have good news and bad news.

The good news is that I've sent tracking numbers to everyone who has a cardigan on the way. The bad news is that the shop is apparently still waiting on 14 cardigans!"

Got mine, fit is perfect (I prefer a little stretch going on when buttons are done). Pics coming. This thing is freaking heavy. It's exactly what I imagined when thinking of the heaviest, old-school type of wool available.

I ordered 38 and it measures 19" across on the exterior, exactly like Ziss said. 40 would have worked but I would probably be cuffing the sleeves, which I hate doing.

If you guys really want to wind up with a 3A from this order, and yours is too small, put it up here for swap. I'll be surprised, though, if an equal number of people ordered too large.

We could just try to shift everyone up the line (although chances at the bigger sizes get worse and some will be ass out for sure)

You guys got yours already? I'm in California and nothing in the mail today. Hopefully by Saturday. My chest measures exactly 37'' and I bought a 38. If it's too small, my best friend has a 36'' chest so it will be an Xmas gift for him, haha. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Althought I really want this piece for myself. frown.gif

Should be fine, I measure 39 and my 38 works, unless you have long arms.

RKD had an inverallan knit prior to this group buy. He went TTS (36 in his case) and the fit's p nice. I wanna say he posted a photo in this thread somewhere.

I'm a 36 and I ordered a 38, I doubt it'll be too big as id like it with a bit of slouch (dont wanna look like some of those recent posts in the sns thread lol)

Will let you all know if it doesn't work out

i know for sure that pit to pit on the 36 is 18 across or 18.5 if its slightly stretched


i'm 5'7/8ish and 135-140 lbs. i wear a small in all brands from epaulet, wvg, sns herning w+h, gitman vintage with the exception of WWM and EG where im an XS (but they are known for their more boxy fits)

I think it depends on a number of factors, IIRC Rkd even cuffed his joint a full 2-3" and it still looked pretty loose

Also, there was some discussion of natural variance due to the handmade nature.

Also, these things are springy as hell, a lot of give.

Anyway, if you measure X and ordered X+2, you are definitely in the safe zone. On the other hand if you measure 39 like me but are 6foot 3, the sleeves might not be long enough

RKD suit size is 36 not his actual chest size so ya.

I'm hoping we can get some swapping going on in this thread.

Chest is 42", ordered a 42 in Loden. I think it's ever-so-slightly stretching, so it might be alright. Regardless, thanks again for organizing this!

With an awful Russian Post I hope to get mine at the very best next week. It was sent on Nov. 29 and still no tracking information in Russia.

Here are pics, size 38 Marled Thunder (grey and navy blue twisted yarn, as far as I can tell). I usually wear S, chest 39, 5'8", 150 lb.

The color is hard to capture. In fact I thought from the original post it was grey and dark gray, or gray and black. This is better.

Fit wise...that looks right on the money and color is great. There was one like that on UK ebay that I was watching and thought would go fairly cheap, but it got high fast. After reading this thread, I am on the lookout.

That's a great fit, Tarmac! I'm surprised that a 38 fits you so well if you have a 39" chest. I also have a 39" chest, but I am 6" taller and 20lbs heavier than you.
