It would be cool if Il Micio offered glasses cases next spring.

More importantly, it looks like @Synthese sized way down on that Cowichan. I sized up one on the navy, and it was too big. Going to try my usual size next.

I've been a NMWA fan more or less from the start, and I've checked in on this thread from time to time, but always as a silent lurker. I thought I would start joining in a bit. Specifically at this point to say: yesterday I received the Inis Meain/NMWA rollneck sweater collab, and it is wonderful. It took me a long time to pull the trigger on this one because I always fear that rollnecks will be uncomfortable on my neck. This one, however, is unbelievably comfy in every way. Maybe I'm the only one with that worry, but if others have been holding off for similar reasons, then you really should give it a try. 

 

Also, I saw posts from people wondering about the fit of 46EU Eidos vs Formosa jackets. For what it's worth, I wear the NMWA Eidos cut in 46EU, and the 44EU works very well for me in Formosa. Someone more in the know can check me on exact specs, but the Formosa 44 is maybe 1cm narrower in the shoulders than the Eidos 46 (for me, that makes the Formosa a slightly better fit than the Eidos), while feeling noticeably slimmer in the chest and waist then the Formosa 46.

welcome and congrats on the great pickup!

He did not size down at all.  The bison one he was wearing in all those pics is a 42, which is his normal size.

Finally Fall-ish here (although the scarf is probably pushing it). Spot the NMWA

You're definitely not the only one!   This is precisely the reason we developed this rollneck in that yarn with Inis Meain -  you get the look of a turtleneck but with a lot more softness and flexibility around the neck.  It is hard to fully understand until you handle the yarn - those who visited the recent trunk shows could tell.

Yeah, the IM yarn is incredibly soft, and the rollneck collars are generally not snug at all.

Weeeeird. I tried the 42 in the navy Cowichan since I am a M/L in IM (6'2", 160lbs), and it was a big pear shaped coat on me. I'm guessing the 40 will be much better.

NMWA should stock Carmina

Why? Carmina is a commodity game. NMWA prides themselves on unique offerings. Not selling a makeup for $10 less for the guy down the street. I see no good reason what would be gained by them being a stocklist

Obviously a maker like Barbanera deserves the slot more in the sense that they aren't as established. I'm just wanting more stockists of Carmina for more variety in makeups ready for sale. And, let's face it, NMWA's service is amazing, so the truth is I want them to stock every brand that I like.

I would guess that you're 30 pounds lighter than @Synthese
