The samples are Medium - too small for me and too big for Kyle.   So here are some Inis Meain shots showing tunics worn two ways.  There's been several customers posting fits with tunics too (e.g. @cyc wid it or @unbelragazzo)

 

 

 

 

 

I'm also including a shot of another style made up with the same "wave" technique, so you guys can see the awesomeness of this rumpling effect

All of the above.  Stitched by giant spider robots' hands

That would drive Tarlach insane!!

 

Not quite as complex.   Tarlach and the Inis team already matched the ground with an overstitch color.  The grounds are already mixed/marled yarns to begin with, so those are really rich and complex knits.

 

Nine options and two choices of make-ups :

  • full contrast overstitch (like the blue/green #4 posted above) or
  • partial contrast overstitch (like the #3 brown / mustard posted above).  

 

The partial contrast use tonal overstitch for the upper part of the sweater and contrast stitching at the bottom.  Very cool.

^ Thanks Greg.

 

The neck opening seems nowhere as big as it looks on the hanger. That is a true representation of these new sweaters you'll be offering?

 

Maybe I could pull it off by wearing it like a Henley and pushing up the sleeves.

Here is a tunic and a regular crew side by side on hanger.   The opening is bigger but not too dramatically so

When are you wearing them? I'm interesting in trying the tunic, but then I go outside and it's in the mid-80s or higher . . .

Just when I thought I was out... they pull me back in.

 

Wow, 8?

 

Any photos handy?

 

A.C.'s temperature question is a good one. I keep forgetting I live in tropical S. Fl. Those don't look thin.

 

Thanks.

I wear my linen sweaters all the time (including layered in the fall).  Probably not for any temperature above 80 though.   Ideal for spring & summer evenings / mornings

The IM Tunics are awesome - they're the one piece of NMWA knitwear, other than the cashmere Scott and Charters rollneck, that girls seem to really respond to.  Not that that should matter, but still.

 

I only have one in Optic white - I think I'll go for #9 above with the crazy stitch cause life is too short otherwise.

I wear them up to 80 or so. DC summer that prob means only at night. But I wore them in spring a lot and on my recent trip to the West Coast. Here's me wearing one w my nephew:



Pants are Schneider.

And, like Greg, I wear them layered in fall a bunch too.

With 18 options between the 2 make ups, are there any that stand out in person? It's hard to tell from a swatch on a computer screen.

Most of the yarn combinations are great to be honest.  Nothing ugly in the 9 swatches.  

 

I love #4 full stitch as sampled and I think #1 would be really nice.   I think the partial contrast version looks best when the overstitch yarn is a high contrast with the ground.  #6 is a great example.

Love my IM tunic. It's actually incredible. I think I need #3 from the list.
