Not at the w+h store, at fourhorsemen. They only got black highs and had almost all sizes this morning.

Got some sweats at Bloomingdales today, been on the hunt and $60 was perfect price. Kinda wish I made it out earlier as almost no stock left

Does anyone know how the wings + horns hooded sweats hold up next to the Reigning Champ ones. (sorry if that's a boring question-can't make up my mind.) I know they are both CYC.

Pretty similar. W+H is a little slimmer, RC has the half-raglan sleeves as a kind of signature. I prefer RC, but when it really comes down to it I'd say get whatever is cheaper (which is usually RC) or whichever has your preferred colour.

In terms of durability, the oldest W+H fleece I have is only 2 years old but it still good as new. I have a few RC pieces that are 6-7 years old and are also still perfect, but I always wash cold or warm and hang dry.

Care to elaborate on the blazer? I found it to be pretty much 'as advertised', this given I've owned several other wh blazers in the past. Though...the fabric is a bit delicate, light, and 'hairy', so may lack durability season after season.

I've been pretty happy with the items I've received so far from fw'13, except the 'cashwool' light grey sweater which was beautiful out of the box but pilled really bad and lost its appeal pretty quickly. Maybe a dry cleaning will help

I picked up the black denim at 40 off at fourhorsemen in store. Maybe these are now a core product for them like the standard colored westpoints...

^ Do they have a sheen to them at all? I'm interested in a pair since my N&F black power stretch pants just ripped.
post #431 of 643

there is a slight sheen to them in the stock pics. I don't really notice it in natural light and looking at some of my other indigo denim there is a slight sheen on some pairs as well so it's tough to say.

Fuck man whoever nabbed the leather rider from Ssense for $390 got the steal of a lifetime. The jacket photographs so poorly but it is fantastic in person.

Are the black denim selvedge? The product descrip says made in USA, so I'm thinking they probably get it at Cone Mills like the indigo, and it seems like Cone Mills doesn't make a ton of non-selvedge, but then it seems like if it was selvedge they'd mention it and I can't see and selvedge ID on the product shots.

Non selvedge

Meh, there are a few loose threads, it's a pretty weak blend of seemingly random materials and feels overall like H&M or that 21 mall shop construction. Button hole on the lapel isn't even real. Overall, what they wanted retail for that piece is insulting.
