    Just got a snow smock. Great piece but a bit too short for me - anyone want to buy a size 50 in grey w/ a down liner for a great price before I send it back?

    Didn't manage to get my hands on Trench size 52, just 50 which was tad too small. If anyone stumbles upon Trench in 52, give me a shout...

    I didn't know Ten C had its own thread!

    Any small body owners here? I am thinking of getting a short parka and their 46 seems pretty huge. I'm seeing some downsize comment and 'mold to your body' comment but I wanted to hear from small dudes. Thanks!

    I've never seen a size 44, so I don't think sizing down is an option if you're a 46. Also, as someone mentioned earlier, if you want to put a liner in your jacket, you're better off getting your normal size. If I'm wearing my jacket with the liner and I have a sweater on, it's pretty snug.

    my snow smock was a little big, before putting in the liner. If you layer with a chunky sweater under it and wear it by itself, I would recommend TTS.

    Thanks for the reply guys,

    Just looked at some liner options I have (It seems my only shot is at Bureau e-store) and they alone make the price for another jacket!

    Like jet mentioned before, I would really like to try them on in person and see if it fits me at all. Are there any online stores in the US that still carry size 46?

    Thanks in advance :slayer:

    What is the cheapest place to get a Snow Smock Olive or Navy. Also size 52 seems really big is the liner thick enough to compensate for the extra room?

    Stopped by union today, tried on some stuff. Size 48 was a little small in the chest but sleeves too long, maybe I got short arms??? They didn't have a 50 in a couple of jackets I wanted to try but the sleeves would be .5" longer so I think I am going to pass.

    Fabric is thick and rubbery feeling, surprised nobody mentioned this. It's really stiff too so there's no drape at all, felt quality though. Gotta say union is a dope ass shop I only stopped in there a couple years back but place is really good and peeps cool.

    This is a pleb option, but I like my outerwear to fit pretty big (especially parkas et al) which usually means the sleeves are too long. I just fold them up inside and duct tape them....

    Did not notice this, IMHO sleeve length is proportional to the rest - as pit to pit increases, so does sleeve length, shoulder to shoulder etc.
