Wings + Horns F/W 2010 - Page 50

The best way is to bring them into a cobbler and ask him what he could do with them. He'll show you what kind of soles he can put on it and all that and explain the process - if he doesn't have the knowledge it should be pretty evident (first guy I took my boots to didn't even know what a vibram sole was).

Shameless plug post. Selling a Nailhead Shirt in navy, size large. Excellent condition.

Just picked up the Utility Coat in charcoal from Blackbird for $388. So stoked! I've had my eye on this piece all season.

What size did you pick up?
What is your chest size?

I'm a true medium in all things Wings + Horns, and I typically take a 40" otherwise.

^ you're probably close to skin tight on a lot of stuff. i'm usually a medium with a 39" chest, and it's somewhat pushing it!

I have a Chabanel Henley in Large that I just got.

Brand new, just tried on.

Doesnt fit perfect so Id trade for anything similar in Medium.
Let me know if you have anything available.

I'd really like to know more about the chabanel hoodies. Does anyone have one? I found one for a good deal (there is one on ebay for cheap, though i couldnt wait) but i honestly can't find any info on the material. I got true to size and i hear the chabanel isn't as small as the loop-terry so i'm pretty confident it'll be alright, i'm just dying to know if my first W+H hoodie was a bad cop.

If you like it, and feel like it was a good buy price wise, it was a "good cop". Wear it well.

can chanbanel cardigans be washed with machine? or are there special instrutions? thanks!
post #747 of 799
They're machine washable. As for dispora's question: The chabanel fabric is very nice, it's a lightweight fleece and more suitable for spring weather than fall, so it's beyond me why they released it this past fall. I've owned several versions of W+H hoodies, and I think it's probably one of the best looking as far as texture. It just looks organic, which is nice, because it is. True to size should fit you perfectly. Don't worry, you'll be pleased. FWIW I went true to size on both my loop terry and chabanel fleeces and they're nearly identical with the loop having more give.

thanks for this! I'm super psyched to get it. I was really looking for any W+H hoodie but for some reason there seems to be a shortage of them both retail (sub $150) and secondhand so i'm glad this was cheap ($117) my size (large) the right color and immeadiately available. Like i said, there is a cheap large one on ebay with a few more days to go.

The local cobbler I use to work on my wife's shoes always likes to suggest placing a very thin black Vibram sole on the bottom of every shoe to protect the sole. He charges $15 per pair for this service.

I'm a little put off by the idea of sticking something like that to the bottom of my Dayton boots. But you cannot see it when wearing the boots (since the tread is not deep). And from the wear I've observed on my wife's shoes, the Vibram protector should make the original Dayton sole last nearly forever while providing superior traction in the rain. What is everyone's thought on this?

The other option would be to see if Dayton in Vancouver can provide a factory resole or refurbish service for their boots. I'd definitely feel the most comfortable with this option. Anyone know if they offer this?

I know Dayton does a lot of custom work so it'd be worth calling them and finding out.
