1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I have to preface this listing by saying that I genuinely hate to let this jacket go, but sadly enough living the life of a grad student means little else but pain, misery, and (most importantly) a lack of coin. The jacket is in amazingly good shape apart from the loop that you hang the jacket from (y'know, the piece of cloth that makes a "loop" so you can hang your jacket on a hook). The stitching came undone on one end, but it's a tremendously easy fix.

    If you look around on the web, you'll see this jacket is sold out everywhere—and for good reason. One of SF's most renowned vendors, No Man Walks Alone, used to sell it. You can read good ol' Greg's post wherein he recommends this jacket as a steal at $529. This jacket was only purchased last fall, and it saw wear during the most unbelievably mild Boston winter we've seen in decades. It's warm, it's luxe, it looks cool as hell, and it's in great condition (minus that pesky loop). Get on it before autumn rolls in!

    Measurements:

    P2P: 22"
    S2S: 19"

    I've sold a bunch of items on here—feel free to ask any questions about shipping, sizing, etc.

    I'll chime in that I have this exact jacket in the same size and absolutely love it. While I was originally hunting a Ten-C parka + liner, the astronomical cost kept me out of that game - this was my fallback piece and I couldn't be happier. I spent quite a bit more coin than the OP is asking here and don't regret a penny of it.

    It's not obvious from the pics but the hood is generously sized with some wire in the brim for shaping, it looks and wears great and keeps the elements out.

    If it helps, I'm an athletic EU50 in most things with about a 20.5/21" chest and this as a Large fits perfect over a thick shirt or a light shirt + light sweater.

    Good luck with sale!

    I have this parka and it's the best fishtail parka I have ever encountered. Maybe only second to the Sage de Cret parka. It fits smaller than tag size if you plan to layer heavily. Otherwise, true to size. Sleeves length are a tad long, but they can be unbuttoned and cuffed once, which look pretty cool.
