received my black bogota bomber in a small and like hannie2, i feel it's a little snug as well (i'm 5'9 135lbs). i made my decision based on the measurements and was convinced it would fit a little larger. ah well, it's still wearable.
as for the overall feel of the jacket, i'm a little underwhelmed. i was expecting insulation to be a little more substantial and the nylon shell to be shinier and smoother. i can't judge whether price is justified since there are jackets beyond and below that are comparable. but i think if i had sampled the jacket in person, i probably wouldn't have made the purchase.

Mainly 20% off site wide. If I remember correctly certain items may be marked down further. Some other members might want to fact check me on that though.

Does anyone own or the swarm jacket?
If so could you give a quick review on it?

You must have really big chest/shoulders. I've been able to fit in mediums with 0 issues until this jacket. Prolly I just don't like clothes to be too long on my body.

I know there's been a lot of talk about the APC and Acne bombers but what other options are comparable? Especially at a lower price?

I have a medium oak l/s classic curve, I want to shrink it a little. Should I wash on dedicates then put in the dryer on dedicates rather than hang up? I don't wanted to double check so I don't ruin the shirt or end up with the collar damaged 

 

Thanks!

 

any leads on a navy iridescent jacket (2)

just on the ma1/bomber design itself in black (disregarding features and fit), uniqlo, alpha industries, h&m, asos and all them could be cheaper alternatives.

For those who have experience with the boucle sweatpants, I'm wondering if anyone can describe to what extent they stretch out. 

 

I am 5'10, 160, with a 31 waist.  I ordered a Medium and they're almost tights-like, which was surprising considering I have really skinny legs.  I like a slim, fitted look, but am not going for a tights-type look.  Any insight is appreciated

You won't get the look you want. They stretch but not that much
