    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.


    Try to post some pics of the shawl collar when you get it! I'd like to see it. BTW, the hoodie looks nice. [​IMG]

    No, it's not a tiger fleece, but it's not solid either. It is probably best described as "heather." The composition is 8% poly, unlike the solid fleeces, so they look a little more like the Tigers (20% poly or something.)

    BTW, Donnell (Uncle Otis) has slim fit fleeces, especially smalls, in tigers (not sure about the colors) and the striped fleeces.

    You're down to 151 now? You run the Boston marathon or something? I might be able to take that punch you offered, now.

    I've been doing lots of interval work. The punch is a standing offer [​IMG]

    I ordered a pair of Adidas Classic Sambas in black with white stripes (I couldn't find them in stores around here). I hope they fit; I don't own any Adidas. I'm a 8.5 in Pumas, a 7.5 in some other shoes. I ordered a 8.

    Just received the Engineer jacket (last year's model) from a Styleforum member. At $150 shipped, from retail of $378, you can't beat the deal. And the color (dark olive, with some brown and black tones) goes with greys, burnt oranges, browns, blues, black, pretty much anything. The details (lined "workman" pockets), half lining in the interior and along the sleeves, piped seams throughout, are superlative, as expected from Daiki's stuff. Reinforced stitching, including quilting in the stand up collar. Bi-swing shoulders and Norfolk halfbelt in the back. And the boiled wool material is very, very thick and warm that will last through fall well into the winter.

    That's my outerwear purchase for the season. And here I was thinking I was going to have to shell out a bundle.

    just got this Spiewalk "Maguire" flight jacket with removable fur collar from Barneys. It's super soft, super comfortable, super fitted and is gonna be my go-to winter jacket since it's water repellent and we're supposed to have an El Nino rainy season this year.

    Jason did you get it from scp co-op? They had some spiewalks there I believe, how's the quality?

    I tried on the carpe diem boots yesterday and they were the sickest shit ever. They were a distressed suede in black and brown. I might have to get them we'll see.

    Also went to maxfield and they had a hundred pairs of c diems along quite a few poells. Checked out some number nine, libertine and some other garbage while I was there.

    Yep, CoOp at SCP...the quality seems good, it's a very solid feeling jacket and everything from the snaps to zippers to buttons seems well attached and well functioning.

    picked up a red/black tiger fleece at Uncle Otis. My first W+H product, and it's awesome. SUper warm, so definitely nice on Edmonton Evenings. Love the long cuffs

    BUT I was trying to get a spruce thermal they had at Nomad. Perfect fit (again the long cuffs are great), perfect worn in feel. BUT I had $200 for clothes for the day... and picked the hoodie.

    WIll post picks when I find my bros camera

    I told my bro to pick this up for me. After years of wearing size L and hating the fit, I tried this in a medium today and it fit so perfect I was shocked. It has more texture than you can tell from the pic and looks better worn, especially on me. It doesn't look as big as on this guy and the neck closure is a nice touch.
