You mean Inis Meains? Their small fits me fine, and I'm a 36 chest. I wear stuff somewhat traditionally sized - not baggy or tight - but I can imagine a 38 chest going with a small as well. I assume measurements of various Inis Meain sweaters can be found on NMWA's website. They have the crewneck linen in various Donegal yarns.

I'm a slim 38 and a small from FW13 fits me very well, but I have to size up to medium for SS14 for the same fit. (I'm talking about gansey & Aran cable crewnecks from FW13 and the grey linen donegal & grey birdseye crewnecks from SS14.) I believe Kyle posted a picture of himself in a small grey linen donegal in this thread. Is Kyle's suit size 36?

Additional note: I can only wear the grey linen donegal in medium with a T-shirt underneath, but I can wear the grey birdseye over a dress shirt or a T-shirt. The grey birdseye fits looser, and that's reflected in the measurements posted on the site.

for reference, i wear an XL in inis and 54 in formosa.

hope that helps someone kop something.

Slightly OT but a testament to the great service of NMWA.
Spoilered for TL;DR Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
My mom got me an Inglese shirt for Christmas but it was a size too small so I sent it back on 12/27 via USPS (lost the NMWA UPS return label) for an exchange. Weeks, then months pass and the guys at NMWA hadn't received the box. So at this point I am thinking either someone stole the box, which would be quite random, or more probable, the address was worn off the shipping label as a result of shitty weather.

So, a couple of weeks ago in a last ditch effort I submit a request form that goes to the USPS "unclaimed mail" center. Fast forward to this past Friday and the box is sitting on my door step, beat to shit but there shirt was unfettered.

Finally I emailed the guys at NMWA and let them know that the shirt from eons ago was returned to me. I think the standard return window is 30 days but they were totally cool with exchanging it for one in the correct size. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gifsmile.gif

So thanks to the guys at NMWA for honoring my exchange request!

I'll add that going into a B&M store to do it is the same thing. Not cool, and - if anyone who does this is reading - you're participating in killing off the very outlets you want to stay in business.

Re: NMWA's customer service

NMWA is the only non-Canadian online menswear shop I know that offers free shipping to Canada, either via UPS or USPS. It means I no longer worry about getting the most out of a shipment and simply kop when I succumb to temptation, which is fairly often lately. (Three orders so far this season.)

This is a ridiculous statement.

I'm sure there are cases when it can make sense to look one place and buy from another.

But I can't condone the showrooming phenomenon that, for example, Amazon seems to try to promote. That has to be pretty dispiriting from a business owner's perspective.

Of course, you should be able to go into a store with the intent of browsing. Just not for examining the goods with the already formed intent to buy elsewhere.

Just picked up a package from NMWA...All I can say is that my sincere sympathies go out to those of you sizes 38-44 who missed out on the Loro Piana Mackintosh Monkton.

I have to agree with Frank. I don't think it matters if you were doing it with an Internet website or brick-and-mortar store, if you're taking advantage of somebody it's wrong.

If you're giving them a fair shake at buying from them that's one thing, but if you have no intention of doing so whatsoever, that's when it would be an unscrupulous thing to do.

There have been some times when I wanted to, was trying to buy something from a store and it was as if they didn't want to sell me anything. That's their problem then. But I think it is another reason why NMWA has such an accommodating shipping and return policy: they actually want us to buy stuff. So they make it easy!

Unless you want a half size in Butteros. Then they're no help.

(I kid. Couldn't resist... 😄)

They're called retailers for a reason; primarily because nobody has figured yet how to profit from the "open a store, stock products, hire workers and salespeople, to provide a free 'try on as much as you like but please go somewhere else and buy it!' " business model. If you've figured it out, I've got plenty of retailers to send you all the customers you can handle.

What if we serve $8 cocktails?

Can people try the cocktails before they have to buy them though?

The NMWA approach to the market sort of requires a liberal exchange policy for the simple reason that they are bringing many new and previously unavailable products to the market. For all my time on Style Forum I was not familiar with brands like Inglese, Mazzarelli, Pedaled, Esemplare, TS(S) or had a chance to experience others like Formosa, Camoshita or Stephen Schnedier. It is not crazy to think that some people might need to tweak what fits, determine what they like, etc. Fortunately, I will have a chance to swing by the showroom next Sunday and acquaint myself with some of these items but not everyone can fly in to try on some clothes. To me it's just the cost of doing business over the internet. Frankly, whatever the expense, I can only imagine what the overhead would be if NMWA had instead opened up a boutique on Madison Ave. If some people choose to abuse the system NMWA can always refuse to sell to them.
