    Daaaamn that looks nice. How are the cuffs and collar -- floppy in a bad way? Does anyone have detailed measurements of the S or XS? The South Willard site says a M is a 38, which makes me think these run a bit big (if a M measures 44 pit-to-pit).

    I would not size down.

    The collar has no lining or structure inside it, but it's not floppy and it stays up when the jacket is worn.

    Downshirt looks fantastic, a great slim down outerwear piece, finally.

    $300 though? Pricey. Is that just SW's mark up or would I be able to swing by a Seattle location and pick it up for cheaper?

    Or I guess, I can wait for sales.

    It's not that expensive, the quality is insane and sw do not mark up their clothes as much as other retailers.

    Ask robin, very worth the price and these are classics so no sales on these Lel.

    Expensive is relative. Though, from what I've heard, I'm sure these are worth their price, moreso than EG and in the future I will probably choose CDW>EG.

    I emailed this company last year to see if they have a store front in seattle and never heard back. Any local places carry their stuff?

    SW ordered them, should be here in about 3 weeks. I actually helped him pick out the fabric and colors so it's going to be wool tweed on the outside and navy ripstop on the inside, got mine reserved for when it comes but not sure of pricing yet guessing from 2-300.

    Braid if you email him he can gauge interest and order more, shit has been selling quick to all kinds of people who aren't into fashion and shit, demand was underestimated for this sort of stuff.

    You can order directly from them as long as you know exactly what you want (i.e., size and material).

    ^^ Yup, I emailed them about a month ago and they said everything is made to order and can be purchased over the phone/online. They said the down jackets are around $300 and I'm 99% sure I'm going to go with them as searching for a nice vintage one that isn't beat to shit or a Small is getting hard to find. This is the way to go!

    I'm not sure how much the material affects the price. The double ripstop Classico Down Parka I ordered ended up being $500.

    ^That's too much imho, sw actually sell them cheaper and can do custom shit as well. If there is enough interest I'm sure he will accomodate.

    X posted in WAYWT. This is the black down shirt purchased from robin. Size medium. Fits good, but I feel like the sleeves might be a bit short. For reference I'm 6'1 and about 185 [​IMG]

    I think I'm unintentionally pulling my t shirt down in that pic. Length on the sides goes down to the bottom of my belt and in the front and back lower. Similar to a BoO shirt.
