Being 5'8 SdC parka is not short on me at all and I find it perfect length for some serious protection smile.gif

Short and sad answer : yes.  

 

That said, there's shirts and shirts.  I care about sleeve length a lot for dress shirts and when I wear a suit/jacket.  Not as much for casual shirts - for which I'm totally fine with them being an inch short

I own and love the SdC parka, but I think it is best for above-freezing temperatures. When the temperature dips below freezing and the wind whips up, you'll want something down-filled.

I know some people like to wear sleeping bag sort of down coats that go down to their calves when they bundle up, but I'm guessing the NR Moscow is long enough. The Moscow uses wool fibers as an alternative to down, and it sounds it will be good at freezing temps as Greg's pointed out. I much prefer the styling of the Moscow over Canada Goose and much higher priced Moncler alternatives.

Any recommendations on a new scarf to wear with the AFB DB LBM Overcoat? Want to keep it fairly dressy

I'm looking at these 2 currently:

http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/accessories/scarves/large-copper-navy-and-grey-large-check-lambswool-angora-scarf.html

 

Both are great - I have as slight preference for the second one (a little bigger)

 

In the same tones, this is also a great scarf and will look great with the RAF blue overcoat

I haven't bought from NMWA in probably over a year but decided to take advantage of my Secret Handshake Founder's Circle status and grab my first pair of Vass - the Scotch Grain Alt Wien. I've had my eye on them for quite some time but each time a sale rolled around my size was unavailable (same story for the Norweger but those were out of stock in a 41 as well now). I fear once these arrive that it may be a slippery slope and my Alden just won't do it for me anymore.

That's a really nice choice and the P2 is a great last.

As it hasn't been cold enough to wear in the wild so far, that was just from trying on over a shirt at home. So it hasn't set or "molded" yet. Six could try the M but it might not work that well.

Given the soft nature of that coat the measurements are deceiving. Despite looking big I went with my standard SS sizing. I wear a VI and based off your info I think a V would be perfect

edit: beaten

Could either of you expand on why the measurements of the memory coat is misleading and it actually fits smaller than the measurements might indicate? Is it suppose to fit slouchy?

I have a 36" chest and 17.7" shoulders would a size 5 work? From NMWA website a size five (smallest size left in "Night") is 48" chest and 18.9" shoulders which I think is way too big but dare to dream right? The only Schneider piece I own is a shirt jacket in size 5 and it fits me pretty slim. It's not listed on NMWA's website anymore but is backed up here.

That's just too big for you.  You'd need a 4 (maybe 3)

These are the exact reasons I got the Moscow.

 

Also, my Calabrese brown neat tie came in. The dry silk is gorgeous and NMWA shipping, packaging, and service is incredible. I've never seen an online retailer make you feel like they care about the customer this much. I fear I have jumped on the bandwagon.

Moscow is great. Both Single Breasted and Moscow also have that button all the way at the bottom to completely close the length of the coat when needed.

That's quite the haul. How'd you size the cardigan?
