    I feel you Jet. I was thinking the same thing and researched the hell out of mine before I purchased because there aren't any stockists in NYC

    Yep, I could go down to union tomorrow but it's 105 out right now and I'm going to go down to newport beach to have a smoke and cool off.

    London what piece did you get and did you size down 2? I'm debating between a 48 and 50 though I'm normally a 50-52. The 48 seems like it would be spot on, 22" across is what I'm looking for.

    I got the snow smock in a 48. I'm usually between a 48 and 50 myself. In my estimation it fits true to size

    Snow smock is awesome what color?

    Thanks for the tip, makes sizing more questionable now though since I may be a 50.

    I got the blue and just bought the orange liner. Haven's prices seem to be a lot cheaper than Union.

    The material that TEN C uses is easily the best one I had ever seen or held for an outdoor piece. It's similar to Stone Island microfiber but thicker, stronger and more 'velvety' on the touch, but far better than any Stone Island material out there. The rumor I stumbled upon is that this material is being used for Bentley's convertible tops, but I emphasize the word rumor.

    Just to get an idea about the effect this material has -->

    Regarding the size - I am XXL/56 in recent Stone Island/CP Company gear and 52 in TEN C. I'd guess that I would be 54 in everything else, so do size down.

    They make good quality clobber, but their service is horrible - should be going on a trip on Friday, and I still can't get the information where I can find the trench coat. I know they are 'anti-marketing' but this is just silly, can't get an answer on a simple phone call/email... [​IMG]

    Just went and checked out the parka here in NYC - nice stuff, but pricey, and the fit was a bit too boxy.

    I don't mind the 'boxiness' (same as how a lot of Stone Island/CP Company jackets fit) - Supply in Sydney were stocking Ten C too, might head down and see if they've got the new season in.
