However, after trying it on again at home, the body fits a bit too puffy for my liking.
Questions:
1. Can a tailor address this problem? My initial instinct is no but it could be worth a shot.
OR
2. Should I try to exchange it for a medium? Maybe I'm just not accustomed to the short sleeves/body styling and will grow to appreciate it over time?
Thanks.

I would size down.. I'm 6' 175 and I wear a Large.. and I find it's a bit loose.. you won't want to wear anything other than a thin button up underneath either.. since it's so freakin' warm.

Can any one comment on w+h sweatpants with respect to sizing? Depending on the pant, I'm between a 30-31 waist and like my inseam to hit at around 33 inches. Would a medium be too big?


If your waist is about 32"-35" inches you'll fit the sweatpants in Medium.
Small would be too small.

I'm at 33" and I find they fit well. It's just the weirdo in me that wishes they fit more like dress pants, i.e. that they would have a higher rise.


I have a pair available for sale. . .

I know this isn't exactly topic related but what other options have you guys found for dressier sweatpants?

Having the same problem. Don't know if I should get a small or medium. Sleeves seem a tad short on the small but medium it seems too loose...argh...wonder if the tailor can address this problem.

just go for a different jacket. CDW makes a nice puffy coat that would fit better sleeve wise.

Context just marked down a bunch of W+H stuff.

Bomber is the cheapest I've seen for it yet.

i'd like the bomber if it weren't for the zipper hood

It's just still too much money even at that price for the kind of jacket that it is. I feel sorry for those who decided to pay retail.

completely agree, finally saw it this past weekend, it was nice, but personally not what id want in that type of jacket for that much. on another note after a great sale at nomad this weekend i came back home to a package containing my moleskin pants from a fellow sfer. great feeling

I feel sorry for those who cant afford it, since it's such a nice jacket!

The moleskins are awesome - wish I could trade my cargo joggers for them (which is why I didn't buy some forumers moleskins... you may have them now). Sigh.

Blanc and Noir has an awesome pair of moleskin pants this fall, hope to grab them on sale.

Just grabbed the grey reverse flannel shirt and cargo blazer in olive from the Context sale. Great price on them. Anybody can tell me about the sizing on the blazer? I got an XS since I fit small in all their hoodies and XS in their shirting. Did I get the right size?

^^ Might be a little tight, since it's obviously outerwear. I would've went small, based on your sizing.

Whatever helps you justify the price. Considering it's basically a re-release at almost three times the price, good for you.

Considering I wouldn't have spent as much on the old version anyway, this one is a step up. Also, I didn't pay full retail, so there's that.
