    To be fair, I don't think Inventory's price is that bad. And it is a beautiful cardi.

    The cardi will cost 118 pounds plus probably 15 pounds shipping. For Canadians that price could potentially go up to $280 with customs.

    So it's a $70 markup - not terrible for a cardi that's available now instead of 8-10 weeks when the cold weather will be already over anyways. So you'll be purchasing for next year basically. Unless you're going to wear a sweater that thick and sweat your balls off.

    I'm planning on getting a 3a in a medium gray. Think it will compliment my SNS Herning Stark well.

    I'm thinking a little bit lighter heathered gray. I have a Stark in Navy.

    Just got my 3a in he post today in red. Wonderful garment, not too long in the arm which is usually the problem for me.
    I had a good trawl through Rakuten to decide on style and colour and then ordered away. Customer service is great although everything is a little antiquated on the ordering front. It also pays not to be inpatient if you are ordering from them[​IMG]

    Hello

    Would anyone be able to help with sizing please. My chest measurements are 47", and I wear generally a 48R in suits. Should I order a 3a or 6a in 48?

    Thanks

    I'm going to be ordering one of these soon and I believe these sweaters take 90 hours to knit as they're probably knitted by old Grannies while watching daytime tv in the highlands.

    Looking through fit pics on Rakuten, just wondering if the sleeves on these knits are really wide or are these guys just wearing the wrong size? Maybe because of the chunkyness it's supposed to look that way? Looks like a ball... Anyone have fit pics of their own that aren't like this? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I ordered a cardigan a while back.

    The website is impossible to decipher, but on the other hand they work pretty well with e-mails.
    As far as the size goes, they will ask you to provide measurements and if you fancy a slim fit make sure you choose one of the more fitted designs as well as specifying that you don't want them to add extra inches to your measurements.

    I'm pretty happy with my order, but make sure you press them on the delivery, I waited for mine for a long time and I only got it once I told them that if I did not receive it in two weeks I would cancel my order.

    Don't do this. I get the impression that they are a very small but very busy operation. Expect several weeks or months for delivery. Don't be a dick by hassling them / threatening to cancel your order.

    yeah, i agree with johnnylaw.

    i placed an order for the red knit cap (the exact one inventory was selling) a while back. the process was kind of strange ... the woman i dealt with asked me what i wanted, and once i did she told me that they'll start making it and once it's ready they'd let me know. no money down or anything of that nature. a couple months later (the woman gave me an estimate that it would take this long), i received an email telling me that the hat was ready and they needed my payment info. a week later i had the hat at my doorstep. it's important to remember that this is a SMALL operation, so patience is key.

    my overall experience was great and i definitely plan on ordering from them again. if you place an order around july, it should be ready by fall ..

    also, the hat ended up being like, $20-$25 USD SHIPPED .. inventory was selling theirs for close to $100. psh.

    i also questioned them about this when i was considering ordering a cardigan. i was told that the measurements are EXACT (a 44 is 44" p2p), but i had a hard time believing that. they said that it should never stretch, as only low quality knit garments stretch. i dunno, i'd definitely size down if i were to grab one.

    I mean it has to be a 20" p2p or something similar, making it 40-41 all around. 41" p2p would be like two people standing next to each other.

    How prone are these sweaters to pilling? I've owned a couple wool sweaters in the past and they always seemed to get covered in pills after only a couple washes.
