    Got the coats I copped from The Corner in. The A.P.C. duffle is awful and is going back. But can I get an opinion on the fits of these two? Apologizes for the lighting, but that's not the important factor here.

    Yeah, return. The first one is kind of wearing you, and the sleeves on both are too long.

    The first is awful, the second has some weird pulling / folding going on with the toggles.

    I usually dig all AV's garments but damn that first coat is hideous it has such a bland appeal to it.

    Part of veilance's selling point is being bland though.

    And to be fair the Galvanic coat actually looks pretty good when done correctly. Clearly not the case here though.

    how flattering are winter coats really supposed to be...

    re: the toggles, that was my own error.

    But yeah, I more or less agree on both counts. Just sucks. All my coat steals were misses.


    edit- my tailor could probably fix the duffle... it wouldn't need THAT much work...

    I was actually going to get either the APC Duffle or that Hardy Amies one too. then someone bought my size on the corner, probably you. I've had bad luck with all my winter coat purchases so far this season. I've sent back or resold 4 coats. I just bought the Wings+Horns Tartan Parka which should be here tomorrow. Never had any issue with them, so hopefully it'll work out.

    Neiman saga part II: some dude at Neiman store who didn't take my order calls me and tells me they can't ship to a PO Box even though the salesman earlier in the day said they'd make an exception for me and mail via usps. No problem, give another address. Same dude calls back half hour later again, tells me my card's declined. Check online quickly to make sure Chase didn't fraud freeze from the original botched out of stock order online only to see my card was successfully charged $747. I tell salesidiot, you ALREADY CHARGED ME. He says "oh let me see if someone else already rang this through. I can't mail this out unless I know we charged you." Gee thanks, if I didn't purposely keep this card low balance you would've successfully charged me TWICE, dumb*&^% and now you're holding my coat because you don't know you charged me?

    Do salesmen at Neiman make minimum wage? WTF!

    If you'd like to buy the Size M. A.P.C. Duffle off me, I'd be happy to oblige instead of sending it back in. Only thing is I can't offer a return policy. The Hardy A. I think I'm going to try to exchange. I might just be a small now. That's the silver lining in all this.

    (I'll resell the size M Arc'teryx Veilance Galvanic coat as well if anyone wants to give it a whirl. Someone taller and lankier could pull it off probably. Otherwise everything gets shipped back end of week.)

    other than the sleeves, they both look too small on you. honestly, you might just be too chunky

    Well the toggle situation was resolved. Last chance, assuming my tailor can fix the sleeves...
