Cheap monitor after the vat deduction! Someone pick it up

That is a great price for the unlined Monitor. Unfortunately, sold out in my size. Does anyone see this on sale elsewhere in size Large? Thanks.

Should I have sized down? Feel like the sleeves are too big/long, and the shoulders are too big. Though this is with only a t-shirt underneath. Cuffs are tightened, they're slightly longer if unadjusted.

Probably yes :( . In my opinion, the value-added of veillance in comparison to mainline comes from a) the sleek designs/colors, b) the domestic/Canadian manufacturing and c) the fact that it fits like a glove if you get the size right. My jacket fits much like the pic below. Can still toss a light puffer under and that's perfect for me. However, when you start making room for additional layering you sacrifice the aesthetics of the jacket in a big way.

I think it looks fine. Although I agree with the sediment that Veilance should be sleek, not all pieces are intended to be so. The Survey jacket pictured above was designed to be a more accessible Field Jacket. The use of Gore WIndstopper also meant the jacket would be suitable for less conditions which allowed the designed to make a trimmer profile since less room for layers was needed.

 

If you look at it, your Field jacket still fits trimmer than any mainline piece. I think when you lose the ability to freely to layer with the Field then that defeats the purpose of getting a jacket with such a rugged and sharp silhouette. Sizing down also means that the armholes will get higher (those gussets really get annoying) which defeats the purpose of an articulated shell

It depends what look you're going for but, in my opinion, wearing a Veilance piece in that way defeats the whole purpose of what the line is about. Maybe re-post a pic as you intend to wear it, or just back it.

Mostly worried about this as the pits/upper chest feel pretty fitted already, just surprised how big the sleeves are.

wearing it in what way? with no layering?

post #311 of 436

While the pictures are a bit blurry, it looks as though the shoulder point (where the arm piece attaches) is not actually aligning with his real shoulders when the thing is done up. Aside from intentionally oversized sweaters/tees, this is contrary to how pretty much any top should fit, let alone something from the Veilance line. Again this is just my opinion.

Also, I'm not saying that sizing down would necessarily look better. It's possible that a smaller size would be too tight in other areas and look even worse. I'm personally pretty particular with fits, and if neither size fit me properly I would look for an alternative in the line or consider abandoning the brand altogether.

TLDNR: for the price of the jacket, it doesn't look nor fit as swag as it should

The point of Veilance is the same as mainline Arc: do what you want outdoors longer than in another jacket but in an urban environment. Conroy even says in an interview with Haven the system is suppose to enable the user. If you want to wear a shell like your SLP jeans then get the Actuator or Arris which are cut that way. On a piece like the Field, the patterning is cut with the intention of supporting layers. Even Conroy wears his Field boxy (as it's intended to fit).

Again, pretty blurry pic, but Conroys shoulders are lined up perfectly. I understand that it's not possible to avoid the boxy look with this jacket, as it's cut like a  box.

Edit: Seriously though, I'm no expert on the brand, so take the commentary with a grain of salt.

The shoulder seams are off, wider than the Galvanic in the same size which is more fitted. But I guess I'm really asking about the intended fit, The armholes/chest make me think it's the right size, the shoulders/sleeves make me think it's too big. I wouldn't mind if it was more fitted as I don't really plan on layering.

post #315 of 436
@accordion how long are the sleeves without tightening? Sleeves look ok to me if your just wearing a shirt. I've had it told to me by a Veilance dealer that your size is your size except for the Monitor and Field. I wear size small in the quoin, Isogon, and vest but sized down in the field and was happy with the results.

The pic is me with a Quoin jacket and the Field XS. The shoulders hang a bit low just like they would in a shell. I'd say Veilance is a sleeker loom than mainline but it's still GoreTex and won't stretch so a bit of room is good imo.
