 Sometimes they're on, sometimes they're off.  I do feel as though the size 50 Mallorys I bought last year were a bit more snug than the previous season's. Really?  I'm not a fan.  Even discounting the back panel, I'm not a fan of the front.  Not to mention that pockets don't seem to line up to me.  I'm a sucker for a Cameraman and have both the previous Crazy Cameramen, but this one doesn't do it for me.  Funny thing is I thought I'd like it when I saw the photos before...
End's Cabourn stock is now up on the site.  Looks like just the "classics" and little else.  Apart from the "classic" Everest Parka, which I probably won't get, there isn't much that I'm interested it.  Really glad I invested in the Cameramen and Mallorys that I did in the past couple of years.   On a side note, some very interesting measurements posted by End.  Mallory chest measurements are MUCH slimmer than even last season.  On top of that different Cameramen have...
 Too bad the Mountain Parka didn't work.  I really do love the jacket.  In fact I'm hoping it comes back in another color next season, though not entirely because I do like that it's a unique piece at this point that hasn't been done before. Yeah, the Cameraman just...  It's really that PU upper that killed it for me.  Again, still somewhat open to it, but I'm not thinking about it all day long so we'll see if one pops up in the future.   Taffy?  You mean the Cold Weather...
So you'll have to excuse this post if it's long, but I mentioned a few weeks back that I'd comment on some more recent buys I've made.   SS14 Armor Lux Grandad Shirt:  I'd never had any previous experience with Armor Lux before this piece.  Sure I knew about the brand, but measurement always sounded far too fitted.  Well this piece was certainly the opposite.  The name "Grandad" is certainly fitting in a sense as it's massively over-sized.  I really should have down my...
 Missed the second part of your post.  Indeed it looks very similar to the Bowers Deck Coat.  I know because I still have one with the tags on it.  The wool looks practically identical in both appearance/texture and color.  Buttons too.  On top of that the leather panels are placed almost exactly in the same spots.  The only notable difference is the collar, which on the Bowers is shaped "differently."   The armpit holes are high and somewhat tight in the front.  Tried it...
 I think so.  I was surprised to see only one left yesterday, a Medium, when I checked.    Well the guy/group that owns Filson also owns Shinola watches, so yes.  That said I think Shinola gets a bad rap and I love all my Filson bags. Surely there will be more stockists out there.  On top of that, weren't there four jackets in total as well as a backpack???  So far I have only seen three shops that stocked the same two jackets though and only one of those has an online shop.
Context looks already sold out of one of the Filson jackets.
 I hadn't inspected the pictures, it just doesn't make sense.  I see what you're referring to, but I'd say that clearly looks like it could/should be cut when you decide to wear it or more likely that it buttons down.  Either way I'd be shocked if it was sewn down permanently.
I doubt the collar is actually sewn down.  My concern would be that the seams at the armpit are like that limited edition Deck Coat from AW12.  
I like it but I'm not yet going crazy over it.  I think the photography and the model help with some of it on top of knowing some of it probably won't fit.     As for the new site, it's nice.  I did like the military feel of the old one, but this one is better for viewing some of the items.  I just wish you could zoom in on all photos.  I also wish they'd provide measurements which IMO is a bare minimum requirement.
