    You guys realize that it's not really a hoodie per se, right? It's a shawl collared sweatshirt...

    Yeah, it is cool though. Brian told me that a few Styleforumers had contacted him about them. I guess I know who the other dudes are now!

    I have no idea what you guys are talking about, anybody care to post a link?

    As for the Raf hoodie, yeah like I said the sizing is tricky, but only considering the lenght and the overall look of the peice on you, they do fit true to size and Raf sizing is 46/48/etc not xs/s/etc so it's precise enough in that area.

    The Engineered Garments are definitely durable and well designed and constructed. I really like it. My only complaint is that they use meh YKK zippers. But so does pretty much everyone else in the same pricepoint and even higher. However, it is in this regard (construction and trims) that W+H excels. They use Lampo zippers, which are a step down from the riris previously used, but still very good zippers, the construction is geared for hard work (my Spruce hoodie (still waiting on W+H stuff) is more durable than workwear), and the fleece (both tiger and otherwise) is better material than that used by bonafide designer companies. The fit (well, I've heard mixed things about this years classic fits) are is slim without being exaggerated, and the small details as good or better than those from much more expensive brands (Rogan and Dsquared come immediately to mind because their hoodies look similar.)

    I tried on some Carol Christian Poell that had YKK zippers (boots I think but might have been a coat). At about $1800 it's kinda annoying to say the least.

    I purchased a pair of bootcut 5ep's about a week ago that hopefully should have been delivered today, though I suppose once I get home from work I'll find out for certain. I also just pulled the trigger on a pair of RB6's and a Marc Jacobs M65-esque coat. Oh lawdy, my pocketbook is a hurtin'.

    I picked up a ted baker medium gray tweed blazer and an apc black cord blazer which fits just ridiculous. I'm trying to get the field jacket but nobody but south willard carries it. Btw, SW had a sick sick sick bless diagonal knit cap ie beanie but $147 was too rich for my blood.

    Sounds like a nice pick ups with the cord blazer JET. I personally plunked down $170 for a waxed cotton engineers cap by English millinery Fred Bare, so I say, go for the hat! Anyway, just purchased this exact W+H hoodie from Uncle Otis. A nice variation on my uniform grey hoodie. So far, I have a heather grey Engineered Garments zip hoodie for outdoorsy, rugged days, a pull over Fillipa K taupe grey hoodie for urban casual days, a double full zip with zipped side pockets and zipped chest pocket Acne "MAT"s hoodie for rock and roll days, a slim Edun taupish gry hoodie for hanging out on the streets days, and a pullover Shoreman hoodie by Rogues Gallery. Oh, and a charcoal with navy thermal lining American Apparel hoodie that is essentially sleepwear right now. This should be a nice addition to my collection - sort of a sophisticated take on the classic heather hoodie. A little outdoorsy, but definitely urban. Expecting it sometime next week.

    It retails for $165 Cdn, which is somewhere around $145 USD, plus actual shipping. Tell Donnell that I sent you. The tiger fleeces are $180 Cdn.

    This just arrived from Uncle Otis 10 minutes ago. The color is amazing. Close, rough chalkstriping in heather and slightly darker grey. This year's slim fits have the super long cuffs, unlike last year's model, and actually, the medium slim fit this year is not that different from last year's classic fit in the same size. It is a little shorter and tigher around the chest. But otherwise, very similar (I am wearing my Spruce Kelly Tiger from last year, and compared.) Slim/athletic Guys +/-10 pounds my size (151 lbs) could wear the medium slim no problem. The Slim medium would probably fit anyone 5'9" to 6' very well.

    Thanks for the hookup Donnell!

    Now I'm psyched for my shawl collar to come it. And the Engineered Garments jacket enroute now. Fall/Winter, I am ready.
