    They're a bit looser than AA. I'd say they run on the loose side, but that's because I feel like sizes in general are way too large for what they should be.

    Compared to a basic sweatshirt from hanes, lee, etc. it would be pretty much the same size.


    What's sleeve length like? I'll prob want a med for a closer fit through the body, but if the arms aren't generous lengthwise I may have to go large...

    asked before, but never answered, this is important to a lot of us: what zipper?

    I am not certain to be honest, but from past experience with W+H I'd say the arms should be generous enough to size down one. I'd wait for a bit more info first, but that's my guess.

    Again I can't speak for the OP but I'd guess that it's a cheaper variety, perhaps a nicer YKK zipper. CYC has to pay a lot of cash for their custom Riri zippers for W+H. I have a feeling the price would be quite a bit higher if they were Riri zippers, seeing as Riris cost $15+ a pop.

    I will second the notion that I too hope it is a double-zip, however. I'd be willing to pay extra for a double zip, even if its an extra $10.

    I might be interested in a brown/small, I'll check measurements but I assume those fit like Spruce regular fit, correct?

    Just wondering, are you guys planning to customize these blanks with your own designs/graphics/doodling, or do you just really want unbranded solid-color hoodies? I mean, I'm down with either reason, just curious.

    Based on the measurements, they seem pretty slim, but Brian's comment has me a little worried. I wouldn't want to wait 12 weeks for a sack.

    So are these more of the classic fit model, or slim fit? Slim fit M fits me perfectly, so if this is the classic fit mold should I stay with medium or go for a small?

    The chest measurement for a small is 40.4 inches. I consider that on the larger size of the fence, but it's certainly not a sack.

    Sounds to me like the classic fit. I believe slim fit smalls measure around 38" on the chest.

    Nino, CYC is a pretty hard-to-access design company (except for Kane who answers a lot of questions here), and since this order will be stretching to meet minimums, I really doubt anything but the zip hoodie in question can be ordered. That would be an entirely different model/pattern and thus another minimum.

    Whoops, I think I calculated wrong. Yeah, that's probably a little larger than I'm looking for.

    but w+h doesn't use RiRi... i'd get 1 or 2 if it uses Lampo or RiRi zippers, i'll pass if it's YKK...

    It doesn't? That must be a recent change then. Or perhaps they stopped between the Spruce -> W+H change?

    My question is - will they have long cuffs? I dig that detail very much...

    YKK makes some really nice zippers, Ayn. I have a couple Marc Jacobs items that some fancy YKKs on them. It's just not as noticeable because I'm sure everyone is used to seeing "YKK" on all their shitty zippers too.

    yeah, I know, those YKK zippers on highend items probably aren't any cheaper than RiRi, but these hoodies probably wouldn't use those... I just got a LW81, it's dope, but the YKK zipper is nowhere as nice as the Lampo on my W+H's or the RiRi on my W&H and Spruce.

    I am sure AYN realises this seeing as he has several LW hoodies which all are YKK zipperred [​IMG]. But i thought that the W+H hoodies used lampo/rir zips aswell so its kind of a bummer for the new season if they have stopped and kept the price unchaged EDIT : lol posted at the same time [​IMG]

    I am putting my own order in for ones to print on. As far as the zipper, I cant be certain. BUT, I will not allow a cheap zipper, so if you are concerened rest assured that the zipper is a big thing to me as well.

    As far as sizing and such, I really cannot be that much help, I would say they are more like the new classic fit.

    ok 2 questions 1) what zips, so long as its metal i'm good peronally (YKK is fine people)?
    2) how much for intl shipping?
    3) I would take white, heather grey, black but would probably take any colour except purple ( would need pics of the navy) and i would order 2 once my questions are awnsered


    International shipping will be 15 bucks.

    The colors will be the same as the wings and horn, I am not doing custom colors.
