    I wear a size small in Inis Meain and am a 36 in the chest. I think the sweaters fit me pretty well, and would work for a 38 too.

    I have two Inis Meain Arans, actually. Some of the best knits I own.

    Thank you for the quick replies.

    I think a small size should work for me. I'm around 37 in the chest but wear a 38 due to my slightly wide shoulders. My waist is around 29.5.

    How's the cut of Inis Meain? Is it boxy or somewhat shaped?

    I typically think of boxy knits as sweaters with dropped shoulders (since the body is more or less cut like a box when that happens). If that's what you mean, then no, none of Inis Meain's sweaters are boxy.

    I have eight Inis Meain sweaters. Their cuts differ from style to style, but they're generally a comfortable, traditional fit. Some are meant to fit a bit looser (the Arans, for example). Some a bit closer to the body (an alpaca v-neck I have). But all are well-fitting versions of what one might deem "traditional." These are not tight sweaters, but they're also not baggy.

    Thanks again for the reply on Inis Meain sweaters. I think I'll have to prepare myself to drop $$$$ on you guys this fall.

    Say, are there plans to make some of the hard-to-find classic men's coats? :)

    I don't know about "hard to find" (since they will be right there on our site ;)) but we will have some overcoats. Some classic "polo" coats with belted back and flapped patch pockets in four great fabrics, as well as a few things a bit more esoteric for those who already have the classics...


    We are stocking 9 different styles of sweaters from classic Aran and Gansey to some more unique Inis Meain designs like their distinctive "birdseye" sweater that has a linen overstitch, or their "pub jacket" (is it a cardigan, is it a soft jacket...?)

    This is going to be a heck of a launch, G-money.

    Most of the FFBF (for forums / by forums) sites started with just a few types of items and grew from there but seems like you guys will be a fully formed botique right from the get-go.

    (Not a comment on anyone else, just an idle observation.)

    I'm happy to see a new Inis Meain stockist. It may be the quintessential Style Forum brand, since it is nearly unique in excelling with both classic and designer-friendly knits.

    Does the overcoat sizing begin at 36? I sometimes have to size down if the fit is traditional. (But if it fits Dieworkwear, I think it'll fit me.)


    I hope you have enough in small to satisfy both the streetwear crowd and the guys in classic menswear.

    This is going to be an expensive season, but I'm smiling...

    as an aside, the juxtaposition of real fisherman and boaters doing hard work and manual labor, and squeamish SFers who run to the sink at the slightest hint of a stain, wearing the same sweaters, cracks me up.

    Re: overcoats, our size run is starting at EU 48.

    Re: Inis Meain, we are buying small runs for everything so to be very honest, we'll have very few of each style

    I wear a charcoal aran sweater on my boat! Most boat stains are dark green, brown, or red so dark colors are the way to go.
