    The down vest and sweater made for sw ARE less puffy due to less down as adam had correctly observed. I didn't know anything about this but they were far too puffy before, now they are more in line with our sensibilities.

    Also there will be a small surprise which I will tell you guys about later, not a huge deal but nice.


    Do you have any more information about this? I've always felt like my vest was too puffy, which I got from SW this fall before the donegal check was released. Was this an issue only resolved in the most recent iteration of sweaters and vests?

    It's not an issue, the down was decreased in the current vests by request. Every other shop in the world has the same fill vests as the one you have. As a result the vest will be less warm.

    Just got off the phone with the APC Store, and apparently they have these left in most sizes:

    http://www.freshnessmag.com/2009/12/...s-down-jacket/

    The guy said both black and green were available, and i think they were just over $400.

    the 50 off are for blazers coats sweaters etc. Copped a few blazers yesterday and today, got one stolen, re-copped (they have extras downstairs).

    The Crescent Downs are only 30% off, so roughly $400. Is it worth it at that price? Tried the XS in store - really comfortable and warm. Wonders if there's better deals elsewhere though.

    Just to confirm: The price difference between the SW version and (say) the APC version is just due to the amount of down - right?

    ^SW carries the down sweater with less down. Usually the regular down sweater has 11 oz. Think the down parka has 14 oz. Did pac carry the below colorway

    http://www.tresbienshop.net/en/art/c...arka-olive.php

    How was the fit. Very puffy?


    Thanks.

    Fit was fantastic (XS). Very puffy (and heavy as hell) but not excessively.
    First thing to cop tomorrow morning - hope it's still there!

    I would imagine that the south willard jacket is not suitable for sub-zero temperatures, correct?

    Seems silly to sell down-filled clothing in SoCal period.

    sw did away with extra down/normal because there is no need for it in socal
