    It's really variable. Popular items will sell out or almost sell out very quickly, though.

    Hi Yolo,

    Those KKA pieces are very light. They are a somewhat thin wool/cashmere blend and are unlined with unfinished edges. You should think of it as a heavy cardigan more than a coat. That said, when I handled the fabric at IF in New York City, I was in love with the softness haha. That hooded coat is my favourite piece! If it was lined, I would've gotten it for the winter.

    With regards to the Attachment coat, please let me know your size before I start hunting for it ;)

    For anyone in NYC, Hotoveli on W. 4th is also carrying Attachment this season. Their buy is pretty good, better than what I saw at IF from what I can remember. I was just kinda casually familiar with the brand but never had a good look in person, and getting to check it out, I was impressed by everything I looked at. Really good fabric choices, in my opinion. I'm a fan.

    In the MA-1, would size 3 be right for a 37-38" chest, 5'11", 140ish lbs?

    I think so.

    (That said, I think the upcoming Toj/John Coppidge MA-1 is nicer haha)

    Yes, and it helps if you have an ectomorphic body as well. I really like some Attachment stuff, and wear a size 4 (I am a small 40), but I find that even then, the shoulders are dead on, the chest a little tight, and the body a little loose - and I've hardly a huge guy with a massive drop.

    Yea I'm debating between the attachment, jc, and ro ma-1s. The attachment is probably my third choice.


    I'm an ectomorph who works out. I have about 7-8" drop. Sounds like a 3 should work. Thanks.

    ^ I've never seen a navy wool coat from Attachment.

    Got my Attachment hoodcoat today, and gonna have to reiterate the 1/44 2/46/ 3/48 sizing concept. I'm a 46 and this coat fits me great, not tight a little bit, have more than enough room for a Uniqlo light down coat or a thick knit underneath. If I'd bought a size 3 I'd be swimming in it.

    Will snap one tomorrow. It's ridiculously warm for an unlined wool coat. The wool feels very dense.

    Sorry they're not great! I'll take some better ones soon. But this should give you an idea of the fit and drape. I really, really like it.
