I want to order a CG Chateau or Langford jacket. I am not sure which size to order though. I talked to people from moosejaw and mr porter online and they both would say I am a size Small. Regarding to the CG charts I am a M though. According to Mr Porters measurements, the chateau jacket size Small has a chest width of 108cm, which would seemingly fit perfect to my chest size. I want to avoid the parka to become to pluffy.

I am 176-177cm tall which is 5 feet and 9/10 inch. My chest is 97cm's wide (about 38-39 inch), and I am fairly athletic build. I would like to be able to wear a thick sweater under the jacket! And I am talking about just a regular tshirt and a knitted sweater for example, so fairly layered up. 

Hope you can help me out here! Thanks!

If you're going with the Chateau, you'd probably want to go with the M, especially if you want layer underneath it - the Chateau fits slimmer than the rest.

But just a note - you probably wouldn't need to do all that layering underneath the CG, unless you're particularly sensitive to cold?

I'm in Toronto, and with my CG last winter I was fine with an undershirt, OCBD and my CG. YMMV.

I guess I'm the minority in this thread by going a size smaller. I wear CG when I want to go out with just a tee underneath shog[1].gif

I am pretty sensitive to cold though, I like to have it nice and warm outside in the winter. It's getting colder and colder every year. I also just like to wear a nice knit sweater during the winter instead of just a shirt! I guess I should go for size Medium than. I think I'm right inbetween though.Would you recommend the same for the Langford parka? I kinda like the longer length.

I was also looking into the Ontario parka, which is not slim fit but regular fit. Would you recommend taking a size Small in this one? because it would get to bulky elsewise and because of the fit? I like the pockets in that one! 

Thanks!

I have the Chateau in a small, and I'm 5'8, 36 inch chest, 29 waist. I'd say the jacket would not fit people with wide hips or a, uh, prominent backside. I'd say get a M, or even a large in any of the slim fit parkas. The reg fit parkas are definitely too loose and boxy for the fashunz,  unless you're looking for that oversized silhouette.

 

Pro tip: If you remove the patches and paint your jacket white, you can tell people it's margiella.

Anyone know if there is much difference between xs and s in Canada Goose products? (The Citadel Parka being the model in question), I tried on an xs in one of the stores in town and it fitted just about right, however I can get the same coat in a small for several hundred pounds cheaper and would like to know if it worth taking the gamble and getting it a size up and save.

Thanks.

Saving money is important but aesthetics effects your budget. If you don't intend to layer up, you can get away with the smaller size. If you do want to layer up, then the larger parka would be the better buy.

But really, how much layering are you really going to do under that?

Anyone familiar with Outdoor Survival Canada, from what I can tell it used to be apart of CG, but split in the 80's and the quality seems a lot better.
post #972 of 1064
You can pick up a used one for like $300 (in Canada), I've also heard good things about the quality, not too much about the fit (though apparently you need to size down like 2).

Other brands that are talked about a lot around here is Nobis / CG / Parajumpers / CMFR / Mackage in terms of down jackets. Obviously fashion takes priority over strict quality/outdoor capabilities as you can tell by the list.

are Canada Goose generally warmer than North Face? I was in the market of copping the North Face Vostok, 700 down.

From what I've read, if you compare similar categories, ex: Chilliwack vs. the Gotham yes. The prices are obviously different though..I think I saw a Gotham on sale for like $140 a year or so ago.

Hey Guys,

 

I ended up ordering Langford Parka in Medium! What do you think of it? It is the colour graphite,I think its an amazing colour. I was wondering if you think the jacket makes me look shorter? The sleeves are a bit puffy? Btw, the back is so stretched in the back around my waist because i adjusted the cord a bit too much! thaat can be changed
