    how much did it cost to buy it from uncle otis?

    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.

    - Nudie dry thin finns
    - black leather Purcells (Thanks to this site! I never knew about Purcells, they are SO much more comfortable than Chucks). These are still embarrassingly new looking.
    - AA Tyvek jacket
    - AA black California fleece hoodie
    - Levi's 511 in dark wash
    - hooded henley from Urban Outfitters (love this and only $34)

    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 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.
