This looks awesome, @zissou, nice pickup. Ever since Inverallan stiffed me out of my 3A and $ from that special order you graciously put together many years back, I never picked up a replacement since they left a sour taste in my mouth, but maybe that will change someday. Is there any chance you could post measurements from the size 40 you picked up and share any size 42 measurements you may have gotten from Clutch in your email exchanges so I can gauge sizing? I'm generally a medium across the board in brands, assuming I would be a 40, possibly a 42 for more slouchy fit, not sure.
FWIW it was Mandon Store (now out of business) that stiffed you. That group buy was so frustrating because it was a ton of work and brought the shop a fair amount of business. And then, they somehow couldn't deliver or refund the last 2-3 knits. Put me off managing group buys forever.

I'm 6'2", 165lbs and wear either 40 or 42. Honestly, the measurements vary so much that I can wear either size and they fit about the same. I would ask for measurements of an individual piece to be sure. I think I even have a 42 that fits smaller than one of my 40s. The one thing you really have to watch out for is that the arms usually run just a little short. Here are the measurements from the cotton 1A from Clutch Cafe:
Size 40
Chest:22"
Back Length (from To of Collar) 28"
Sleeve Length (from Collar) 28"
Sleeve Length (from Armpit)19"

size 42
Chest:24.5"
Back Length (from To of Collar) 29"
Sleeve Length (from Collar) 29"
Sleeve Length (from Armpit)19"

damn regg my computer locked up and did some weird 80s graphics shit when I got to page 2
The website needs some work. You also can't purchase from the site, you go through checkout and then they email you details and then a paypal invoice plus shipping.

Any idea if they deduct VAT and how much is shipping to the US?

if anyone is looking to unload a 6A in a size 40 (or possibly 42), I'm your guy! I am parting with a 3A that is just a touch smaller than I'd like but need to get something from Inverallan back in my rotation!

After 80+ pages, I have a small questions:
On inverallan's website, yarn type can be Jamieson Soft Spun or 100% Rennies Shetland, etc. Can it compare to Donegal? Then, their mail order still available? It would be great if someone can help!

I am selling a Black 6A in size 42 from END that is like new. I bought it recently from Bingham, but it is unfortunately too big on me. I think I need a 40 or 38 :(

I picked up my 6A (?) on sale from End a few years ago.
Same. My 6A was purchased on sale at this time of year in 2017.

You might have more luck with sitewide % off (singles day, Black Friday etc) rather than end of season sales on select items.
