I thought I was well done with A&F a few years ago. That's until I started looking for a good deal on a stylish and vintage inspired mountaineering down jacket. I came across the Kempshaw parka from A&F and it seems like a front runner when considering low priced second hand jackets. Does anyone have any experience with how they fit relative to there label? I know A&F pants are way bigger than their labeled sizes, but have no idea with jackets. I also can not find a very good picture of anyone actually wearing one.

You can do better than AF IMO.

ebay is your friend.

I say this after having had a shoddy M-65 clone for about 2 years. I worked for them, and that stupid jacket which gave me fits. I needed a coat and this was easy to wear with a white tee and still look 'brand'. About 2 months in the zipper completely went to shit, teeth falling off the zipper the sewing on the zipper coming loose. I thought no big deal it has buttons too... a day later 2 buttons fell off. It was 29.99, which is cheap for outerwear... but at the time I was unwilling to pay money for anything and really pissed off about it.

again, you can do better than AF
