    Serious bias towards shorter folks on those pants. Bummer.

    You guys beat me to it, but I like the site redesign, a huge step up from the old one. Here is a link to some runway pics of the Spring/Summer 2012 collection from Surf Collective NYC: http://surfcollectivenyc.com/surf-c...gen-art-many-firsts-for-a-mighty-great-brand/

    I picked up two reverse tees and a blue oxford the other day. I'll give an update when I get them in.

    I like the linen pants, but need a sale or a discount to make a run at the moment, but they are in my radar.


    Sweet. I have those in mind as well so looking forward to hear your experience with them.


    My first thoughts were these as well. I thought it was a glitch in the new site, but those prices are really damn good for made in NYC goods and from the pics it doesn't look like they sacrificed any detailing from the last few season's, in fact they even added MoP buttons to some of the button downs and even those are at $118.


    I have the black waxed parka from this past FW11 and it's been great. Slim fit and has held up brilliantly through rain storms. A word of caution though, the outerwear runs very slim. I'm a small in most brands including BW shirts and had to size up to a medium and it still fits slim. The small was way tight.

    Wow, much lower price. Is production still in NYC? LMK how those pants are Teger and if the waist measurements are accurate.

    Love the new site. Placed an order yesterday for the waxed shell jacket and skinny village pants. Spoke with customer service and they were incredible too. Can't wait.

    NEW SIZING? I love that new Parka. I normally wear a small in Baron Wells. Thoughts on sizing up for the Parka?

    Received my stuff today. I'm a normal XS / 28 waist, for reference.

    The skinny trousers in 28 fit better than any pant I've found so far, right up there with size 26 APC PS. The material is perfect and they're light enough for summer. Extremely happy with these.

    I also grabbed the shell parka in XXS, deciding to size down. It's a fantastic spring jacket. The XXS is great, but I would not be able to layer well with it done up. This is fine for spring summer. The material is somewhat waxy and definitely waterproof. It seems it'll grow to develop it's own sort of patina with time. The cork buttons are a great touch. Fits like a dream.

    I'm really, really happy with Baron Wells. The measurements help so much and the price is totally reasonable. Before them I probably would have tried some Jcrew stuff and it would have cost more and not fit as well.

    Emailed the owner and gave him my regards. Really hoping they release the skinny trousers in new colours, and keep releasing new outerwear. Definitely going to order again.

    Also, the package came marked down as gift. Bonus round.

    ^Are you Canada? If so guessing you didn't get hit with customs / brokerage?

    I am in Canada, no fees whatsoever. I may or may not have been assured by someone working there that all Int'l packages are treated as such ;)

    so it turned out my pants came like a week ago but my stupid neighbor had them all this time. anyway, got em, and they fit pretty well. they're pretty loose in the thigh/top block, but with a heavy taper... pretty sure I'll keep em. the weight isn't that light though, I wouldn't wear them on anything hotter than upper 70s.

    Last March, Baron Wells ran a 70% off $200+ sale. Anything remotely close this year would be amazing.

    Highly doubt they will have any sale bigger than 30%, their prices now are about the same as when they were having the sales. Right now their price to fit/quality is extremely good.
