If you're buying something off Marrkt, the Highland cable gloves are looking tempting at only five quid. If you're special like I am (an American), they're only about $8 after VAT. Orginally about $48. Not bad for british wool and leather/suede.

Did someone say previously that you need to size down one in some of the Eddie Bauer stuff?
That's the consensus, but in my experience I'd say TTS. Pit to pit is from the outside of the garment and so you're not factoring in the inch or so, and yes it is an inch, thickness of the down. I've only tried the K2 and quilted jacket (quilted field/Mallory, which it should be noted is a bit snug in the arm depending on your build) though and they are both AW12 while the Skyliner is AW11. Of course they look pretty big with the thickness of the down, but to be expected in this sort of coat. If you're looking at a skyliner I'd move soon as I think inventory is limited. Had the navy in a 52 in my cart and it was gone by the time I was ready to check out. I can definitely live without it. Now whoever grabbed the grey fairisle Highland cable gloves though...
