    I will say that the usual Inverallan double knit is pretty damn thick... so thick that if the knit is a little small, it takes a lot of work to get it to stretch. Not to mention, it is so warm that it is best worn only on the very coldest days. I may go for a single next time around so I can wear it more often.

    Do you think a single would be more comfortable in general, warmth aside? Less constricting, softer, or look better/worse?

    ugh... so many words.

    A couple of fit pics together with chest measurements would be clutch.

    The single versus double is only in reference to Donegal, right? What's the default inverallan in basic colors, single, double, or just a different wool that's set apart from the thickness of Donegal?

    Thank you for your response. This is the type of reasoning I was concerned I might have overlooked. With that said, I double-checked with Inverallan to be on the safe side and it looks like it is not actually correct in this case.

    Below is the question I asked them:
    "I realize this may seem obvious, but I was wondering which would be thicker/chunkier…single or double donegal?"​

    Their response was:
    "Double Dongeal is thicker and more chunky."​

    I ordered a 1A in Muff, and a 3A in Culdaff. Sized up for the 3A, I think I'd prefer a looser fit.

    I initially ordered them both in double donegal (I was going to go single for the 1A but the order form doesn't seem to list Muff as an option). Talked to Shannon and switched them to Single. I don't think I'll need the extra warmth even though the sound of double thickness is tempting. I think I'll be more comfortable in a single (I'm in NY/NJ)

    This is an interesting point. For that reason I think I'll go with the single when I get around to getting one.

    Sound advice. And at the same time, make room in your heart/closet for non-skintight jeans and/or winter trousers. And a medium weight coat that will fit over your gloriously chunky knit. And brown or oxblood boots. And a scarf and hat that works with your knit. Oh shit, this just got expensive.

    Just an FYI, as of this morning Muff has been pulled from the options until they can source more of it. I may have got the last order in :embar:

    I doubt you are going to get a coat over a knit like these, maybe a 1a.

    That would depend on how you size your coat

    it you can wear a very heavy knit underneath, it will look like shit with everything else.

    I don't understand why people say stuff like this. I can fit my stark and A3 under my barbour coat. IIRC I've seen fitpics with Mellowfellow with a vest over his Inverallan and a Barbour layered over his 3A as well. some outerwear are more voluminous than others even if you size accordingly. My 3A is really not that much thicker than most SNS products I've owned and handled.
