I really have no idea what to expect at this point. Maybe I picked the wrong time to finally buy from Inverallan.

In for a penny, in for a pound.

I hear you. I have a nice haul of footwear sitting in Japan with no reasonable way to get it to me.

You might also keep an eye out on grailed.

Haha you have no idea how many eyes I keep on grailed. Only a few Inverallans circulate, and a couple look to be abandoned listings. I tried to buy a 3A cardigan in wine on grailed a few months back, but the seller looks to have run off some years ago.

There's more on ebay, but nothing that catches my eye.

Regardless, I put my order in last night so I'll learn about the tariffs soon enough.

One knitwear brand that I have had excellent luck with on grailed is Howlin'. They seem to have a lot of turnover on the site for some reason

Nice, what did you get? From End?

This all reminds me that I need to wear my black indigo cotton 1A a lot this fall.
No, I wish this piece was available on End, as they cover import duties.

I bought it directly from their website (https://www.inverallanknitters.com). I went for the 6A Shawl Cardigan Donegal Tweed Range 2 in Mehroon. It seems that they don't send any of their site products to other retailers, so if you want one of their donegal cardigans you must go through them.

That's a good looking knit! The merino/cotton blend sounds very appealing. They used to offer a bespoke service direct from their site until SFers ruined it by obsessing over exact dimensions of a chunky hand knit.

FTR I've ordered from Inverallan as recently as February, with no duties. I still haven't seen any thing to indicate that whatever actions have been taken affect the $800 de minimis value.

How does Inis Meain fit your tall, slim frame? What don't you like about it? Was thinking to invest, but am of a similar build.
All of the IM knits I’ve had (mostly variations on the Aran knit) have been too short and boxy. The set-in sleeves do weird things at the shoulders, too.

What a beautiful piece. Can you share your experience regarding the wool? I sometimes end up with scratchy crap that looks great. I went for William Lockie recently, but I also find the Inverallan stuff very nice, looks also really comfy. PLMK

Hello, I just found that Inverallan sizing is something I couldn't understand. Then I have a small question,
which size should I get when it come to 1A? My chest measurement (in body) is 34", 17.5" shoulder and 23.5" sleeve. Any help would be appreciated.
