    Looking for some advice here for a new NR coat --

    Would the Moscow be too warm for winters here in Vancouver (0-5 degrees celsius)? Would the single breasted rain coat be more suitable perhaps? Looking to wear it with just a shirt and sweater. I'm seeing that the moscow is suitable for temperatures hitting -20...

    Any input would be appreciated

    How long is a piece of string? Temperature ratings are so subjective...

    Maybe if you can describe what you find comfortable in those temperatures you could get some kind of benchmark - e.g. primaloft 100g/sqm, a specific down coat, etc.

    I would wear the Moscow in the conditions you describe; I'd probably find it too warm for London, where, even if temperatures hit 0-5C in one day, there's a strong chance they'll be higher during the day. But then, again, I see people wearing just a tshirt when I already have some insulation layers, and I see tourists with down jackets in September that make me sweat profusely just looking at them!

    I’ve read here that you should size up for the SB and DB models but what about the Moscow? One store’s description mentioned sizing down for a slim fit. For reference, I’m 5’8” and I have a 37” chest.

    Would not recommend sizing down on Moscow: it's not really oversized -- just has a slightly more A-line silhouette than the single/double breasted (those two are more columnar for lack of a better word). I would stay TTS.

    I wear size 42 and my XL Moscow hits well which is damn strange as I almost always wear L.......

    Question: any guess how the fit for the Single Breasted or Double Breasted? Or would the Geneve maybe be a better fit?

    You'd need an XL without Arctic liner for SB and DB, or an XXL with the liner (or if you wear on top of a suit consistently)

    Thanks
    Should I think of NW sizes on a different scale than usual? There is no other brand that I would ever consider wearing as XXL in, for example.

    Would a good tailor be able to reduce sleeve length on a XXL, as my XL is already a bid too long?

    Do you have plans to carry the Blue Herringbone material in orders? It looks to be a truly great color.....

    I just saw this while riding the elevator in my XXL single breasted with liner over a sweater. I’m 6’2” and typically a 42L.

    I remember reporting the scam site to Norwegian Rain a few months ago. I would have bet I mentioned it here, too, but I can't find the post.
