Quality of moncler outerwear - Page 2

post #16 of 28
I have two; the Tany classic quilted down jacket (black) and a reversible vest. Neither have the crests/logos/patches on them, so I like how they have a luxe/minimal sort of vibe.

I find the quality of both to be very good; excellent materials, have held up well (now 6-7 years old), Lampo zippers, etc.

I was tempted last winter by one of their down jackets, but these jackets and vests were too popular and flashy in Europe last winter. Very light and warm. I've seen many people actually skiing in them.... I have this summer Chamois wind breaker, but in brown. http://thumbnail.image.rakuten.co.jp...00x200&s=0&r=1 I paid 50% of retail (from about 750 USD). slim fitting (mine is size 3 - about 40 US), nice quality, the branding is more discrete. Styling similar to the Belstaff motor jackets.

Is Moncler made in China? I've seen an assortment of Moncler stuff at these small Chinese shops that also sells Paul Smith shirts, Ralph Lauren and that kind of vague factory surplus stuff.

Last year on Saks.com, Moncler went 40% off in November. Depending where you are they may not charge tax either. Also 10% off coupon when you sign up for Saks email spams.

Good quality, the jacket's are shorter than average.

I'm resurrecting this old thread, as I was looking around for how to clean these things. I was a little skeptical of the hand washing thing but I suppose it makes sense. I'm worried that the jacket will not regain its old shape, however.

I agree that the quality is excellent. My down jacket is about three years old and looks beastly still. It's good for me since they're definitely cut trim and shorter for a modern silhouette. Someone was posting about Moncler made in China. I've never seen that. They're a made in Eastern Europe or Italy brand. There's a notorious market for fake Monclers, though.

It boggles my mind that someone said their Moncler was not warm? I have found them to be warmer by far than anything I own. I've tried on some Canada Goose stuff recently since everyone's been hyping them up, but I couldn't get into the cut. It was too regular-guy, "Hard Wear" for me.

not sure this thread needs to be resurrected.. shiny colorful slim puff jackets are kinda played out, today street fashion has shifted towards heritage, workwear influence and muted colors which is why CG is gaining attention..

about warmth, moncler aren't bad for a fashion jacket and sipping a moka latte on the ski resort terrace but you aren't about to see canadian special forces or antarctica expeditions done in them, which is what CG can claim..

besides moncler quality has gone way way down.. 5 years ago they were made in italy, 2 years ago eastern europe, now they're definitely is some made in china crap including in the uber-premium moncler V collection.. and i'm not talking fakes !!

I don't know if it's legitimately made in China, but the counterfeit shops in Shanghai were overrun with them this autumn. All had convincing looking labels, tags, holograms, documents and receipts.

Good call. I didn't realize there was a MIC line.

I definitely get the vibe that shiny puffers are out. Puffers make me think of homelessness, in fact.

I have a new Field Jacket from them that has an inner puff lining that's discreet, but it seems everyone in NYC has the exact same style. heh

This. Plus I fucking hate shinny puffers. I think they are very girly looking. I have an amazing Patagonia down coat but it sure as hell ain't shiny.

I still like some Moncler coats but for the price you can almost always do much better IMO.

To be honest don't bother to buy a Moncler coat/jacket the quality is not good at all.
I just bought mine £1040 and wore it only 4 times. One of the sleeve has been torn off and somebody burnt it with a cigaret while I was walking in the street. The material is extremely fragile!! But the worse thing about Moncler brand is the costumer service!! None a the shop or office in Italy are able to help you to repair it even if you are able to pay. They can only fix zip and buttons. I went back where I bought it in London and the only thing the manager told me is to bring it a tailor, but the tailor hasn't been able to fix as he needed a new material. Please read bellow Moncler response following my request:
Dear Mr .......

I am sorry to hear about your misfortune with the burn in your jacket.

Unfortunately we do not have an after care service that can fix holes in the material or replace material that has been snagged. We can only offer replacement parts and fixing of seams etc whether free of charge or paid if out of warranty.

I wish I could be of more help to you as I know you only recently purchased the jacket.

I can offer you our local tailor that we use contact details as they are very good at mending holes in the fabric and have done for clients before at your own approval only, but our technical department in Italy who fix our garments do not replace damaged material I am afraid.

Please let me know what you would like to do.
Kind Regards

This following response is from Italy:

Dear Thibaut,

first of all we want to thank you for your interest in Moncler.

In order to check the issue that occurred, we kindly indicate you to refer to our Boutique in London:

Moncler

Ph.: +44 (0) 2.......857
Email: london-.........@moncler.com

Anyway, we already inform you that holes and tear on the fabric are not always reparable.

We stay at your disposal for any further information you may need.

Kind regards,

Moncler Customer Care


Honestly? Is that what you expect when you spend £1040?

Just an advice never buy Moncler brand!

wow! I cant beleive what i am reading about Moncler's response to your request, this is trouble! I have a Moncler jacket, i hope i dont have to go through this bs! I also have a parajumpers gobi, i had a little issue with tis fur trim on collar, have contacted pjs Italy,  they responded immediately and resolved my issue shortl thereafter, now this is called taking care of your customers!

I just want to write few lines about Canada Goose, they are made to last! However i have noticed that they are not as full as before, perhaps 60% down filled as opposed 90% in their previous years but still  Canada Goose manufactures awesome stuff that will  serve you loyally for years!
