Is it supposed to be worn oversized? I was planning on sizing down one from my typical W+H size (XL). 

 

I think we're pretty similar measurements and you got L...

 

 

edit:
Wings + Horns replied to my email. They said they recommend getting the XL. But the chest is 24.8" and my chest is about 42". I feel like I'd be swimming in the thing.

A guy in my class had a black tiger fleece hoodie today in class and it looked amazing. I've never seen one in person before and didn't realize they looked that nice. Anyway, I've been eyeing their hoodies for a while now decided to finally get one. I'd rather not get a light one from this s/s season. So I'm think of getting either this:

or this

What would you guys say? Also, I'd rather have a heavier one. The w+h one doesn't say the weight and stevan alan x w+h is midweight. and for about 5'10 ~155 pounds what size would you guys recommend? small, medium? Sorry for questions I've never bought their hoodies before. 

 

I'm assuming that there will be no more w+h tiger fleece hoodies because that's for RC now right?

 

P.S. my w+h raws blew out in just under two months :/ I think they might have been too slim in the thigh but I even went up to size 30. Ah well.

Yeah a bit, but right now I'd rather get one of the w+h ones I listed because of the reduced price. Also I think I wanna wait a little to see if RC has any new stuff to offer soon

Both brands are on sale right now and use similar fabrics. I think the W+H items use riri zippers while the RC ones may not. I know someone on here had an issue with the ribbing of his W+H hoodie form this season pulling up around the front waist a bit oddly.

I prefer RC over W+H for fleece. I mean, they are essentially the same company (same fabrics same manufacturer) but the RC fits are better for me and I like the (even more) minimal touches. Plus the forest green heavyweight from this season was killer.

Like was said above, both brands tiger fleece stuff can be found for sale at numerous places right now. Just go the stockists page on W+H right now and click a few links, you're bound to find your size somewhere.

hmm should I not get w+h yet then? I'm really leaning towards the vintage full zip with the high neck. The things I'd want from RC aren't in stock.

They're both good. It just comes down to taste.

I think I'm just gonna go ahead and get the vintage one. I was looking at it earlier in the season and decided to wait. Do you think I'd be okay with a medium at 5'10" ~155 lbs? Thanks for helping btw

Aren't the RC full zip sweats a little larger, too? Seems like they are.

-I will also note that the RC Crew that I have is warm as hell, and it's not even the heavyweight one.

Eh, Slimmer yes, not larger. If you're an XL in RC then you'd still be an XL in W+H fleece. W+H are slimmer all around though. I'd say RC are definitely better for athletic types, W+H better for general pop. At least in my experience. And I do like the high zip and elongated cuffs on the current W+H.

Again, they're all very similar and a sister companies but they have slight differences (mostly in fit) that bring everything back to preferences. I own about 10 pieces from RC and 4 W+H fleece pieces and like all of my RC better (except for the W+H tiger fleece sweats from a few seasons ago).

RC, I'd say, maintains a more consistent quality output than W+H. At least in my experience. But then again RC is mostly basic stuff. W+H gets their misses from design choices or outsourced items. 

 

@pl0nky  you should look up the measurements on the www.wingsandhorns.com site. You're probably a medium but better safe than sorry.

seems like the Gilt WH hoodies are a year late.
