    Hi Louis, really sorry for the late reply. I hadn't seen your comment until now. Unfortunately, I'm traveling at the moment and won't be home until mid-January. If you PM me to remind me, I'd be happy to supply measurements. FWIW, I remember it fitting quite well, and I'm about a 36R coat.

    volls.de has a nice sale on Inis Meain. Picked up a mock turtleneck in Charcoal Gray for $234.00 to California including shipping. Does anyone know about sizing? I went with a medium since measurements from fransboone seem on the small side.

    I didn't realize Volls was selling Inis Meain. Hmmm, I just might pick up a boatbuilder turtleneck, but lord knows I have enough knits.

    True to size is correct.

    FYI There is a catalog type store called manufactum that has a bunch of Inis stuff but you have to go to their german site to find it: http://www.manufactum.de/suche/?q=Inis+meáin&p=1

    It's impossible to use the web site but if you email customer service they are very helpful in English and will send you an order form. I got a cardigan and returned a few others that didn't work out awhile back.

    FYI, I don't think those are actually by Inis Meain. As I understand it, they contract out all their non-knitwear work, but I could be wrong (e.g. I believe Luciano Barbera makes all their shirts).

    You're right. It's designed in Ireland and produced by Barbera which I think I'm okay with. I'm breaking my no non-Schneider outerwear rule, but I really like it. I have the SS merino coat, but I wanted a long wool coat that doesn't have a hood.

    Just picked up my first Inis piece from my-wardrobe and I have to echo what others have said - incredibly soft fabric that feels like it's made out of 100% cashmere, not a 90/10 merino/cashmere blend. Unfortunately, I also think it's going to pill easily but I guess we'll see how it holds up.

    I'm definitely going to have to keep an eye out for more stuff for next fall/winter season.

    Just picked up a grey knit cap(my first Inis) from Nitty Gritty, really impressed with it. The fit/feel is great.

    Side note also surprised how fast it got here to the US. Ordered Tuesday night and was coming from Stockholm, then arrived this afternoon.
