    Lefty,
    Lost in all the foaming, me included, about this new enterprise was your statement that you are no longer interested in clothes. What happened? Do you have more than enough clothes? Moved on to other things? I only ask because you are one of the SF oldheads, many of whom have dropped out. (If I'm not mistaken, and I could be, I bought a pair of Incotex by Daffy's from you several years ago. Still wear them on occasion.)

    Will some of your Aran knits be small enough for slim guys whose suit size is 36 or 38?

    In other words, will your sweaters look good on Dieworkwear?

    I think the answer depends a little bit on how everyone likes their sweaters to fit. Aran in particular are traditionally not worn too fitted if you look at photos of Irish fishermen.

    That said, yes, we will stock some S sizes, which I believe would be fine for a suit size 36-38 since Inis Meain cuts their sweaters reasonably slim. We are not stocking any XS at this point.

    Derek can chime in to let us know his usual Inis Meain size.

    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...?)
