    I liked the Chateau because it was mid-thigh length, but then I was suddenly ok with the short Bomber length also =S

    The Tannery's CS sucks, don't hold your breath.

    This is a clear picture of what CG graphite looks like in a Chilliwack/Yorkville. I have a picture of the Yukon in graphite too if you want it. The material of the Yukon is different than the Chilliwack/Yorkville so it looks a little different. Ignore the fact that the link I provided is for the women's Chilliwack. It's going to look identical with respect to color. Graphite is lighter than black but darker than mid-grey.

    Also, please don't purchase a women's Chilliwack. You never responded to my inquirty as to where you live, but my guess is that it's also a bit shorter compared to the men's Chilliwack/Yorkville.

    The Chateau is a totally different coat. While I would guess the Chilliwack/Yorkville is techically warmer, it's also much shorter, so it's a give and take. Plus, depending on where you live, the Chateau may just be plenty warm. I live in Boston and find it to be plenty warm with a sweater.

    Edit: Another good example of Canada Goose graphite.

    Location is in Southern Manitoba. Thanks for the links of graphite coloured jackets, it gives me a better idea of what to expect.

    I have a BNWT Canada Goose Manitoba jacket in size XS (color: graphite). Just got in the mail from Context Clothing but I realized I have way too many winter jackets. Brand new with tags only $450 CONUS. I have receipts and everything. Most sites are sold out of this size and retails for $645. First come first serve.

    Yeah, I don't recommend a women's CG coat unless it looks identical to the male counterpart. Especially to someone living in Canada.

    Glad the pics helped. Graphite is basically a dark grey whereas mid-grey is a light grey.

    Have you considered any other brands? CMFR has a nice bomber that you can get through ssense or due west. Due West currently has a 15% off promotion but their website is currently down for maintenance.

    I would definitely be open to them, as long as they're simplistic in design, I'm all for it unless it's really expensive.

    Nice, it looks like a good fit. Can you layer underneath? What's your height and weight and what size did you go with?
     
  11. 

    Haha, whoops, forgot the details.

    I'm 5'6"-5'7", 135lbs, went with an XS and I can wear a few layers (thermal then button down then sweatshirt/sweather) easily.

    Nice. Where'd you get it from? Due West? I'm holding out for >30% discounts on the Gormley.
     

  13. Yep, I went ahead and jumped on it when that 15% code was posted.

    Hi, I just wanted to show how my Chateau size Small fit. I'm about 5'10 and 125 pounds, so I'm pretty skinny. The XS I could barely get the bottom of the zip together to zip it up, so that would have been way too small for me.

    That's a good fit. I imagine that is how a medium would fit on me. Not sure if I would have been able to layer...

    You are very slim. I can't really tell by the photo, but knowing your stats, Small seems just right. The Chateau will retail for $695 next season, so it's good you got it when you did.

    I'm interested in the Yukon bomber. But only at a great price (Craigslist, Ebay, or here if someone has it). It's crazy overpriced at retail ($625). It was $550 last season.

    I checked out both colour-ways at Holt's the other day and they look amazing.

    I'm currently looking for a Langford Parka. It seems similar to the Chateau but is a bit longer, doesn't have outer buttons, and has two mid-level hand-warmer pockets in addition to two lower pockets. Both the Chateau and Langford are slim insulated fits.
