Yeah I'm looking forward to the bags. I like their weekender that's shaped like a doctor's bag.

I feel that the need to shorten the sleeves on a lot of their stuff
post #93 of 523
Yeah, the sleeves are generally long, which works out well for me.

Also, for those who are interested, Epaulet is currently carrying the men's Urbane jacket. I bought one in charcoal that I like a lot.

How is sizing on their stuff. I want the shroud of purrin jacket and want a nice slim fit but not tight. I'm 6'1" 180lbs and typically between a medium and a large in most stuff. Should I go for the large? Their sizing chart looks like I should go for the medium but just curious if that's accurate.
post #97 of 523
^Yes, you should go for a large. I'm 6'3 175 and mostly wear large in Nau (I have a number of thier peices). With the outerwear, the arm hole are relatively high, and you want to be able to layer under it. On a related note, I have a large Shroud of Purrin jacket from last season, barely used, that I was going to list for sale in B&S. It's the an ocean blue-gray. PM if for details if you're interested.

Do you have any experience with the Blazing jacket? Looks like a really nice cold weather jacket with the down fill. The only thing I don't like is the uneven pocket setup. I hate when one side isn't set up the same as the other but I still may give it a try.
post #99 of 523
I don't own it, but I've worn it. It's really warm. Waterproof/down combo is killer for really cold conditions. Not as great for really wet, slightly warmer climates. As for the pocket set-up, that's totally personal preference, so you'll have to make that call yourself!

We just received it this morning in Ink. It's amazing! In the site photos, it looks much more techno then it does in person. When you wear it, it has an M65-like profile. Construction and weight are fantastic. We'll put it on our site tonight, and I'll be happy to supply some real-life fit shots.

I like Nau's website, but they DEFINITELY need a new photographer for next season. Whoever chose to use high-key cross-lighting for the shoots was out of their mind. It effectively obscures half of the clothing details - and that's such a big point for these pieces.

In my experience, I think that you might want a Medium. Unless you want to layer a really thick sweater underneath, I think that you'll find the Large too loose. Most of my customers have sized down one from what they typically wear.

That's awesome that you are carrying Nau. Glad to see them in a shop like yours in NYC! And while I've never BEEN to your shop, from everything I can tell, it will fit in well. Hope to be able to visit on my next trip east.

I'm not sure I totally agree. I think it depends A LOT on your monitor. I agree the styling (and maybe the fit) on the Blazing don't really do that piece justice, but I think overall the detailing comes out really well. I do know which studio they use, and they are seriously badass when it comes to shooting product.

Oh my god, I love this brand. We explain the story, show all the features, and the jackets almost sell themselves. It's really great product at a very fair price.

The pictures look fantastic, but I'm very picky. As a former online buyer and professional photographer, I'm hyper-sensitive about how clothing and product is lit. Cross lighting is great for editorial pieces and look books. A sportswear magazine might use it for a tech fashion spread. But all the contrast creates shadows and obscures details - so it's not a great choice for an e-commerce pic.

^^^ I would definitely like to see some pictures from you. I think I'll order a SOP jacket for now and then once I see some pics and stuff from you and it starts getting colder I'll give the blazing a try if I'm happy with the SOP.

What color is the Ink? I'm debating on ordering an ink or carbon Blazing Jacket.
