    Anyone have the lined California Winter Jacket that SW is offering? I want a new winter layering piece but don't feel like going with another down jacket, and this looks pretty nice.

    Post impressions when you get it, I'm sure if you sized down one you'll be fine down garments are impossible to measure. I think this will get you hooked on cdw.

    Completely guessing - I'll return or sell it if it doesn't fit.

    Gotta be pretty insecure about your sexuality if you think a burgundy coat looks feminine [​IMG]



    Lol i actually wear a lot of burgundy, just don't know if I can pull it off as outwear.

    wait, this is what i hate about heritage wear. do you really think that outdoor brands are really second rate? patagonia, arc'teryx, et al? who the heck do you think wears crescent down works on mountains and all of that?

    i could wear engineered garments from head to toe but when the weather gets tough, i would hardly consider any of these brands.


    My point was that this has better construction, little design details, and warmth for its weight than something like this, which I've tried on. Therefore, I am happy to pay the extra money.

    And I really don't know what you're saying anyway - should I only wear shitty clothes in bad weather? Is cheap clothing better suited for the cold than nice clothing? Do people who climb Mt. Everest go to the Patagonia store at the mall to buy their gear? Or are you unfairly projecting some kind of snob appeal onto a very utilitarian piece of clothing?

    APC's alleged CDW vest $145

    I got one this morning. CDW shows APC in its list of stockists on its website so I assume it's CDW indeed

    I just want sizing info on this. True to size?

    ryan said the chest measurement is what's next to the size on the site. Not sure if that meant it's the actual chest in inches or just which size best fits that chest.

    It's listing now at $203 and apparently sold out [​IMG]

    Odd about the repricing but it's only sold out in XL ?

    Silly me. Google Chrome may be a bit to progressive for the French. The venerable IE 8 works. Contemplating it but I'll wait to see if it somehow goes back down.

    for those of you considering buying the SW down shirt, I think the sizing on the site is off. i emailed ryan and asked him to confirm the chest size on the XL - he did, at 21" pit to pit. This didn't jive with robin's measurements on the medium from earlier in this thread, so I asked him to confirm. He did.

    I thought it was odd, and that it probably was incorrect, so i went ahead and bought the shirt. The XL measures about 23.5"-24" pit to pit, and fits like a slim XL, rather than an entire size down. Take with a grain of salt I guess, but I think for the down shirt you just order your regular size and it will fit. I think that the pit to pits are probably like 24 > 23 > 22 > 21 for XL > L > M > S. (based on Robin's actual measurements and my own.)

    Anyone know how the APC one is sized?
