ddhongo..if you get it, let me know the fit, i'm looking at the small as well.
Well, the other trims are not as good either. Essentially, construction is not on par with Wings & Horns. Buttons, etc... Stels got another NdG jacket in today. Much heavier. A wool with knit shawl collar long coat. Now, I specifically wanted something short and M65 like, but this piece is amazing. THe quality was definitely on par with anything Wings & Horns puts out. Internal lining was very nice, material leather buttons. trims generally looked more polished. It would be warm enough for most of an Edmontonian winter (which are very cold indeed, for anyone who doesn't know.) And again, the cut was completely on point. If I had an extra $880, I would have bought that too. Then my wife would have shot me in the nuts.
Unfortunately for all the small dudes (or fortunately, for those with wives and who do not wish to get shot in the nuts), they didn't get any
NdG stuff is small... sorry guys. Still go it though. They have a strong fall lineup. Interesting Crosby jackets, for one, and Troglodyte Homunculus stuff.
