    CDW makes a good vest, but the fit is a little off. Its too poofy. I haven't tried the small, but that seems too short.

    Quality is better then NDG vests though and you can't beat CDW's price.

    For me, NDG makes great outerwear. I like the knitwear--but its overpriced. Nothing else really is that special.

    We need to do a SF collab with these guys so we can get the fit right.

    The thing with the fit is hard to explain. The medium vest was definitely slim. The shoulders and chest were just about perfect. I was also glad it was a little longer in the body which was nice.

    The down was just really really puffy, so it didn't fit "slim"

    It had nothing to do with the cut of the vest. The vest was still wearable when it was buttoned up, but it really wasn't an option to wear it unbuttoned with the way the down formed to the body. It felt like wearing a life jacket.

    Also, I wish they had used something other then a cheap ass zipper. They do a great job with their buttons, and then the zipper is a cheapo plastic one.

    Vest looks dope.

    I don't have 650 for a vest though, at this point, atleast not until all my must kops are done.

    I'll never have $650 for a vest. Thats insane pricing. It'll be interesting to see the price come sale season.

    Yeah.

    I was hoping it would be around 350-400, at the most.

    650 seems wacky.

    However it does have everything I want and the details are spot on.

    Not to be a vulture, but with Hejfina closing it's doors at the end of the month, that should drop it's price well ahead of sale season.

    Would you prefer carrion hawk? In all seriousness, that's a sad thing to see. They carried some good lines.

    Not the most groundbreaking collab I've seen, but figured I'd post it anyways.

    Taken from highsnobiety blog:

    Today at (capsule) show we discovered that a couple of our favorite labels - New York's Nom de Guerre and Vancouver's Wings + Horns - worked together on a series of two-toned fleece garments for Spring 2010. Styles range from simple ringer tees to more complex zip hoods and jackets, in brighter colors than we are used to seeing from either brand. Made in beautiful, British Columbia. The tag says "Date: Fall-Winter 2008″ but we're told a release is on the horizon.

    Those are rather ugly.

    I'm a big NdG fan also.

    Yeah, i can't say i'm really liking the colours used there. That green in particular looks off to me. Luckily, that is the Spring collab. Everything i have seen from this Fall's collaboration is in greys and black.

    The red orange one might not be too terrible for those who want something edgy.. but at the price points these things will be at, pretty disappointing. (NDG and W&H are good enough on their own, stop collaborating [​IMG])
