    After following this thread for a while and liking what I see, I decided to take a gamble and purchased an older season Peir Wu bomber. Praying that it works out!

    This navy one from SS14, via Suspension Point:

    The measurements check out, chest-wise. (We'll see, shoulder-wise.) Sleeve length may be a touch long but it's nothing that alterations can't fix.

    I don't have any good casual outerwear for Spring/Summer (barring my Stephan Schneider Match Jacket for early spring) so I'm hoping that this fits the bill. The extra discount from Boxing Week factored into my decision (as well as most of you folks eating up the Schneider clothing in my size [​IMG]).

    Perhaps if we drum up enough demand, we could convince them to open up pre-orders again, like they did for van Beirendonck during the summer. A shame that Peir Wu (presumably) didn't do well for them; I'm starting to like her aesthetic.

    Nice, I was debating that one for a long time. Let me know if it doesn't work out!

    It came in today!

    ...and at this time, it's a keeper. It's a lot more light-weight than I thought. The shoulders don't seem boxy to me (I'm around a 17'' in shoulder length) and the sleeve length is just about perfect. The last time I've felt this satisfied with the fit of a garment was when I stumbled onto a couple of Sage de Cret button-up shirts at a local retailer during the summer.

    Now I'm wondering if her fits have changed much in the past couple of years. If not, I may be in trouble...

    And just for reference, I purchased the 46. I had to email them before placing the order and I initially thought SS took down both remaining sizes to see which one I needed. Looks like the 48 sold shortly afterwards.
