    The navy wool mac looks like the truth.

    I despise whoever bought the sz 28 corded pant in charcoal from RG. Can anyone let me know if there is a sz 28 anywhere else online yet?

    I definitely wasn't expecting the melton wool mac coat to be priced the same as the Heritage Research stuff.

    Also, Acrimony and Four Horsemen have a zip-front flannel shirt which might be a lighter alternative to the brushed wool plaid shirt.

    Finally, a fit pic of the bomber and fishtail @ acrimony.

    Maybe with good reason, don't really like the look of the collar folded up, zipped, and unpopped. If you unfold it, it's rather large.

    The zip flannel looks like its a zipper and buttons up the front?

    The zip-front flannel shirt does have both zipper (RiRi) and buttons. There's also a blue colorway (as seen in the lookbook) which I like better.

    Zip flannels fabric patterns are really ugly this season...

    Acrimony has the rest of their second shipment up it seems. Corded cloth pants in 28!

    I really wanted to like the raw denim, but the fit is not for me. I tried TTS in the straight fit, but it was already skin tight over my calves and a little roomy in the top block. Shame, really. The denim is also lighter in weight than I expected.

    Whoever is making their patterns for their pants, across the board, is doing a terrible job. I really hope W+H takes a look in their upcoming seasons to address it... if they were paying attention they would have already, it's not a new sentiment.

    I had a similar experience. 32 (my natural waist size) was not exactly painted on but it was tight. I'd expect them to stretch a bit and loosen up as they are raw denim. I would have picked up the straights in a 31 if they had them there, but no stock left.

    I got to see the olive fishtail parka in person today as well. The thing is beastly to say the least, pretty damn hefty for a parka. Quite laughable as they were selling it in LA. I don't know how many wears I could get out of that coat if I owned such a coat out here. Regardless, the piece is really nice, substantial, and has a high quality feel to it... but damn pricey :brick:

    I bought the camo pants today. They aren''t really any more substantial than the regular chinos. I never tried on the ss11 bush pants so I can't really compare. I think sizing up 1 from w+h chino size is probably a good rule of thumb, though for me I'm a 31 in both (I wear my chinos a bit looser than most ppl I suppose). btw they are awesome. Pretty unique and the fit is spot on imo.

    I tried on the cords too. They are nice, fit is pretty similar to to the chinos. Apparently they are a bit less slim than the fw11 cords.

    Does anybody else feel like the Acrimony model doesn't exactly do the best job of modeling W+H?

    I really hope the straight fits that I ordered don't end up looking like this on me.

    ^ looks like one leg is longer than the other and his hip is fucked up. You should be good.

    Hmm interesting what you guys are saying, I just picked up the raw straight denim and went with my tts and it fits perfect on me. I guess it's just me. I actually like these denim more than the RRL denim :embar:

    I think the straights fit more like a slim fit from other brands, I'd get them sized down 1, but I'd want to try that on first.

    The slims are too skinny for me, and I like skinny/tapered jeans. This is from someone who used to wear petit standard sized down 2.

    If anyone sees a wine henley in size small, or wants to get rid of theirs, pm me. I've been looking for it pretty much since they sold out a month ago. I can't believe they made such a small quantity of them.

    Quick question - did anyone find themselves sizing down on the basic long sleeve from delivery 1? I'm a true large but the one I bought (in a size L) fits like a parachute on me.
