FYI, Belmont Army Navy in Chicago carries some Filson. The last time I was there, it was 30% everything as well. They carry single mackinaws, but not double. Was happy to find this thread. I spent much of my youth backpacking, camping, fishing & canoeing around the Midwest and currently work half in the trades, half in the arts. Yet I had never heard of Filson at all until I stumbled upon an incredibly well-made flannel shirt in a secondhand store down here on the southside of Chicago. Had to buy it for the $7 they were asking, even though it was several sizes too large - ended up giving it to a friend. The shirt was new with the tags on; the label said "Filson", I looked that up online, and bingo. Everything should be built that well. However, no one in Illinois seems to carry Filson clothes or gear [except a small flyfishing shop with limited stock], and so I'm left to buy blind online. I hear their clothes run large... if I wear a size 40R when it comes to your average suit or Carhartt jacket, should I get the size 40 double mackinaw or a 38? Keep in mind I've got some orangutan arms here, and my combination of slim rib cage/wide shoulders/lanky arms has always caused problems with fitting (6' 1.5", 170 lbs, 32w x 34i, 12D shoes). I spend a lot of time outside all winter long, which on the shores of Lake Michigan is none too pleasant - was wearing four layers today, and I'm hoping a coat like this will cut it down to two. Plus it will probably last the rest of my life, and won't look as bulky or haggard as my beat-up N3B parka. Related: What is Crane's exchange policy, for reasons of size?
