Of which brand do you have a couple? Inverallan is much heavier and warmer, but Inis Meain is much softer and more comfortable (but still warm). The merino/cashmere of Inis Meain feels like a baby goat's bottom compared to the slight itchiness of Inverallan's wool. The Inis Meain sweaters stretch to fit like most sweaters when you put them on, but I find the Inverallans to be very uncomfortable after about a half hour if they are a little snug. I think Inis Meain can be sized TTS, but Inverallan is comfortable only if it is slightly oversized.


Sorry for the confusion.  I have a couple of Inis Meain.  The red donegal from Nitty Gritty and a grey roll neck from Barney's (on sale now).  I bought large in both although the roll neck fits much looser.  I'm 6' and 185 for reference.  Definitely keeping it though.  I've been able to dry (shrink) and stretch wool sweaters in the past to an almost perfect fit.  That's the beauty of good wool.  I love the 10 to 30% wool of the Inis.  It makes them tough but very soft to the touch.  I almost prefer blends over 100% cashmere.  I also own a couple of cardigans from SNS Herning in size medium.  The wool on those is a bit harder (depends on the type of knit though) and itchier, but still a great knit.  My feeling is that I'm somewhere between a 42 and a 44 in Inverallan.

 

Thanks for the info!!!

My buddy got his corvette already since I asked for royal mail and he said the color is much better than on the site.

Should be getting mine in the next couple of days will throw a fitpic.

Chest: 38"

Height: 5' 9.5"

Weight: 155 lbs. (was 150 before the holidays frown.gif )

 

I got a 40, which, based on all the feedback regarding the 3A, I assumed would be either a perfect fit or slightly large. Turns out to be somewhere in between, which is just what I wanted for the 6A. I intend on wearing this almost like a jacket, but I want the 3A (which I ordered in a 38) to be layerable.

Perfect fit, IMO. In fact I plan to get a 40 next time (I have similar measurements to you and got a 38)

That sucks. Does it have holes in it or something?

I think my 3A in 42 is settling in nicely. I think a couple more wears and it will be just right. 20F today, and I was plenty warm.

Looking good z, apparently it's not in sellable condition which sounds highly dubious.

Picked up a great Clerical 3A in 40 from a member who purchased it in the group order. Fit is great, but the color ended up very close to another thick cardi I have. If anyone has another color and wants to trade for clerical, I would be up for it. Otherwise will I'll prob hang on to it and sell the other sweater. Let me know. JT
