    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Maybe, yeah. I take it the 36 was too short on you?

    Anyway, decided to pick up the HWL jacket.

    Prepare for incoming fit with 19 oz. Samurais and WvG floral print flannel.

    I actually do! I went and tried to track down a pair of the first pair to try on in person, but none available near me. Went back and tried the other ones on and they fit better than I remembered :)

    wouldn't fit you... :eek:


    yeah I'm using the pic from that listing because the one I'm looking at has really crappy pics, 100% sure it's the make though (cotton outer, silver fox fur hood).

    I have no idea what I'm getting into though, never handled or tried on Cloak pieces before. All I know is that they fit sorta slim and even then this one seems like an oversized fit.

    I think that one should fit you @Blackmaged, I was debating taking a chance on it, but I'm a bit bigger than you, soooo

    I think that canvas model is better than the leather version. So, sure?

    Thoughts? Can kop for dirt cheap, but don't want an extra pair of shoes for no reason.

    Detailing sets the stuff apart - they were batting at an insane price range. I think that's 06? Is that right? He sent it down the runway pretty oversized. I say go for it. Construction from that season is bombproof; that's real fox fur btw; not going to read as Zara in person I don't think

    Holy shit, don't buy it - I just remembered, it's got this insane, top-to-bottom templar cross on the back. At least, if that's the one I'm thinking of? I almost bought one once. A tragedy. Can you double-check with seller?

    Cloak construction was absolutely top-notch, but for me at least, some of the design hasn't held up. I'm sure it's an alright coat, but there's nothing special about the fit (it's big and baggy) and some of the design elements (those giant pockets with the gothic arches on them) don't really do it for me.

    Here's an XS for sale (no cross) as well: http://page5.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/e154650393
    Fits around a regular M size.

    Looking for my "perfect" winter coat.

    This a good start? Geller Hooded Wool Bomber.
    [​IMG]

    Other alternatives: ToJ Fishtail, Crescent Down Works, Spiewak Golden Fleece N3B parka, Gloverall Original Monty, Krane Emory Bomber, Canada Goose, Fjallraven, Arcteryx Veilance Duffle Coat, Schneider Coat, W+H Coat.

    If it is the "perfect" coat, I am looking to spend up to $250-300 [used ok].
