My big gripe with Nobis is their ribbed wrist-cuffs. Take a closer look. They put a hole in them for your thumb. What??? Really dumb feature. It's just a perfect spot for cold air/wind to enter.

I'm honestly thinking about closing my eyes and buying the Gormley. I'm so curious. But I don't know how it fits. I think I'd go large but I have no idea. How did it look in person?

Truthfully, it looked really good. I actually thought it was CG at first, then I noticed the snap-closure and did a double take. After checking him out from behind--yeah, I was that guy at that particular moment--I noticed the red stripe across the shoulders and smiled to myself as I recalled your recommendation. It appeared to have a slim silhouette, but not nearly as extreme as the Banff or Chateau. Certainly a far more preferable cut, in my opinion. 

 

Yeah, the thumb slot is a deal-breaker.

It's interesting that you feel that way. One of my favorite things about the Chateau was how slim it looked on my body. At the same time, I don't know if that contributed to the fact that I felt the coat simply wasn't very warm.

Here in the States, CG is still a somewhat rare brand with respect to retail locations. This season for example, I found CG at Barneys (Expedition and Citadel only), and Bloomingdale's (Citadel, Manitoba, Chateau, only online, not in my local Bloomingdale's). Nothing in Saks, Neiman Marcus, or Nordstrom.
Locally in Boston I found CG at one of their authorized retail stores (an outdoors store called Hilton Tent City located in a not so desirable area) and The Tannery in Boston (but only a handful of CG coats, unlike their website which carries a lot of the line). If an American wants to buy CG their best bet is to purchase online but even then you are taking a chance if you've never tried on a CG coat with respect to size (and I sadly found out).

yes it is.

I think their Scandinavian agent is at fault for the over saturation of the market, but you can't blame people for wanting to make money, although we all know what happens to brands, who choose this route.

The US price increase could also be, that they are homogenizing, so the product cost the same everywhere, as they are the only brand I can think of with such a big price difference from one market to another.

I wouldn't call Moncler a 100% fashion brand, as some of their stuff can be used for skiing, it's just for people skiing in Gstaad wink.gif

Well the price increase would not be just in the US but also in Canada. CG in the States sells for the same price as it does in Canada. One American dollar is essentially the same in value as one Canadian dollar.

Anybody got some words to share about CMFR? Quality of the coat? Warmth? Sizing?

Not that many styles nor sizes. Only bang your head if you just bought a CG coat and the model and size you want is available at Context.

Are they an authorized retailer? Looked on the CG website and didn't see them on it. A bit hesitant given that a) CG doesn't really 'authorize' sales per se b) don't see them listed c) that price is very tempting.

They are 100% legit. There are some retailers that sell authentic CG that are not listed on CG's site. Another example is Campsaver.

Also, if you do a search for CG retailers on CG's official site (where you enter your location), you'll see that they often display results beyond the ones on the official list.

May I ask what is your height and weight (and body type). Also, how do you like the bomber? I'm thinking about the Gormley but have never seen it in person.
post #480 of 1104
I'm 5'10, 170 lbs. I'd say average body (no huge belly or anything). I love the bomber. Materials and workmanship are top-notch. I got my bomber from the sample sale last year, so my jacket has a CMFR patch on the left arm. The current season's jackets don't have any outer patches. The jacket is really warm and you won't need to layer on most days. I'd definitely recommend CMFR jackets. I was thinking of maybe getting a Gormley but having two similar CMFR jackets would've been too much.
