    Just went with a Gritstone off the ebay shop. Hoping a 44 fits okay (43" chest), my purple and multicolour from a few years back were 44s... This one is a more wearable colour :)

    I found the fit of the sizes of the pair I just received were the same as the pair I currently own in that size.

    Just got a 3A in natural from Inverallan in PURE NEW WOOL (LIGHTER WEIGHT). I have a 6a in 38 in the clerical grey (not sure what type of wool). The 3a much mroe light weight, probably close to SNS. Its a little loose, so I'm going to try to give it a hot hand wash. All its very well made

    How much do these stretch? If I wore a size S in J Crew, would the 38 stretch out enough to wear comfortably? I read that sizing up was recommended.

    I would think so. I am a medium in J.Crew and can go 40 (probably a small bit short and tight at first but I think the fit is fine now) or 42 in Inverallan.

    Yes, I have a 40 in the 3a (lumber cardigan) and it fits fine. I would probably be fine going up to a 42 as well for a slouchier fit. So, I would guess that as a J. Crew small you would be fine in either a 38 or 40. If you are on the large side of a J. Crew small, then you might need to stretch the 38 a slight bit for it to fit well, but I doubt that would be a problem (based off of my own experience at least).

    Note, that my experience only applies to their cardigans. I believe the crewneck sweaters are supposed to fit differently (I think a bit looser than the same size in a cardigan but I may be wrong).

    J Crew sweaters fit me perfectly in size S, ditto for my Inverallan in size 38. I am 5'11" and quite thin though. Hope that helps.

    Anyone know where one could find a wool 1A? Looking for one to fit a 40" chest. Not too fitted. Preferably a darker color. It seems that its slim picking for inverallan at most retailers outside of japan. Not looking to spend $500+ on rakutan.

    Inverallan's Ebay or wait a month or two for the winter restock.

    ebay has been a bit of a bust lately, with mostly cotton stuff being listed, but i'll keep an eye. And thanks for the info. I didn't know there was going to be a winter restock, as I thought most inverallan stuff was Japan bound.


    Also, as an aside. Just picked up a 6A in heather grey that I might not want to keep. Its awesome, but a touch smaller than i'd hoped. Size 40. If anyone is interested, send me a PM.

    Most of the retailers have been mentioned in here at some point.

    End could be an option.

    The sizes are pretty limited but y!jp also has a slew of Inverallan pretty much year round.

    So, I dislike END because of bad personal experiences, but I think that it's highly unfair for you to criticize them for not being willing to skirt the law.

    End now has its stock up; there's some japanese sources out there right now in colors not ordered by End if you google specifically what you're looking for.

    I'm a little bit out of the loop with Inverallan/Strathay. How does one make an order? Just after 1A creme aran knit.
