    They're actually worth exactly 28.7% more than their listed price. Some people find this surprising, but it's true.

    First of all. I enjoy your blog.

    I get that it's subjective and all that, but I was just wondering as they are priced quite high. I love the idea of having a few of their jackets and the liner so you can use them year round.

    I already have too many field jackets though. Alpha, Aspesi and Patrick Ervell.

    Huh. I assumed sf user and the blogger are two different people.

    Anyways, you won't be wearing the jacket all year round. I have a wind jacket that I can wear from Spring-Summer and snow smock which gets wear in Fall- Winter. They are made of same fabric but for some reason I find the latter pretty warm. Maybe its the sleeve lining?

    Go and see what you can pick up at your Army Surplus and then ask "are they really worth the price"?

    I've felt the fabric once in person, and it felt awesome, very rugged. However I was a little disappointed when I found out how quick it looses its water repellence and how fast it wears down.

    For the people who have actually owned a jacket by Ten C recently, can you comment on how the fabric ages

    so explain what makes the fabric so special and makes the jacket worth £800? from what I've seen and what I've read on this forum it's over-hyped and over-priced and can look like a dogs dinner after a few months of wear.

    The fabric feels sorta of rubbery cotton. I'm surprise it wears so fast. If it didn't i would for sure get one.

    Worth is subjective. My point is the fabric that they make is not army/surplus material

    finally got my hands on the car coat. even though I was expecting a stiff fabric, I wasn't expecting it that stiff - it feels definitely good. I am typically in between size 48-50 in every brands and went for 48, as I don't expect to wear it with liner, and it fits perfect. Very happy, I cannot wait to break it in.

    Not subjective at all. It's made from Polyester/Nylon not silk or cashmere!

    Give me cotton any day over synthetic rubbish.

    ^ Agreed. To say that it wouldn't be subjective is just silly.

    btw, so far I've been very pleased with the fabric (I've been wearing the parka since last fall).

    does the fabric ever soften up ?

    Yeah, it gets softer with wear but it still feels quite substantial after softening up.
