    And what would that spec be? The measurements of a specific customer?

    (like the heavyweight double zip riri) is definitely a step up from the Nom de Guerre.


    a riri zipper isn't going to make or break a deal on anything for me. they're super fucking nice, don't get me wrong, but the hype around a zipper is ridiculous imo.


    ddhongo..if you get it, let me know the fit, i'm looking at the small as well.

    Well, the other trims are not as good either. Essentially, construction is not on par with Wings & Horns. Buttons, etc... Stels got another NdG jacket in today. Much heavier. A wool with knit shawl collar long coat. Now, I specifically wanted something short and M65 like, but this piece is amazing. THe quality was definitely on par with anything Wings & Horns puts out. Internal lining was very nice, material leather buttons. trims generally looked more polished. It would be warm enough for most of an Edmontonian winter (which are very cold indeed, for anyone who doesn't know.) And again, the cut was completely on point. If I had an extra $880, I would have bought that too. Then my wife would have shot me in the nuts.

    Unfortunately for all the small dudes (or fortunately, for those with wives and who do not wish to get shot in the nuts), they didn't get any NdG stuff is small... sorry guys. Still go it though. They have a strong fall lineup. Interesting Crosby jackets, for one, and Troglodyte Homunculus stuff.

    Yes, yes they do.

    I'll post pics tonight, hopefully.

    The fit is dead on. I am usually more or less satisfied with the fit of my clothes, but this is dead on. Dead on.

    I can also attest to the fit of the NDG M65. It was so incredibly sharp looking I seriously thought about buying it myself but I couldn't justify the price. LA Guy, you're nuts! [​IMG]

    There is a terrible picture of me wearing it in the WAYWN thread. I'll try to post some better pictures reasonably soon.

    yup, saw it last week. shit is the bomb. my gf was going to get it for me, but it was size L. last size. can't even find a medium anywhere. oh well.

    i got the m65 from blackbird today. nice coat, but i think i definitely made the right decision with swapping for the parka.

    the three things i want from them right now: marine sweater in grey, work sweater ($560!!!), and the wax rider's jacket (won't be this, but the cut looks sick).
