    If you can roll with perfect American English, do that. I'm personally living in the US now so I can go back to CPH and pick up girls with my fake east coast accent. Or well.. That's more like a bonus of my stay :happy:

    Yes, the coats are warm, they're warm as fuck- the new peacoat looks the same as last year but has a quilt lining in it and it'd rule in Korea, where I'm at right now and it's 0 C, no worries. I know cold. I've lived in Minnesota, I've lived in Seoul during bad weather years - that is a good 'average' to start with.

    And yes, mad TOJ buyers are small/skinny; I am 5'8 and 130 myself, and I'm literally fat, I have a fucking belly and my face is getting fat :( Mad unstylish, I hate getting old. I was about 125 before. The TOJ size maze is not size-centric to anybody but there are definitely guys who are 'normal' sized who go down to 5'4 and 110 or so, just different builds. As I've said before, it's not a racist or overgeneralized thing, but there are indeed races of people who show bigger than others obviously, so Asians are on the smaller side, Europeans are on the slimmer, taller side, Americans tend to be stockier, etc, etc.

    Just put in my order for a ribbed collar CWU45/P :D I hope I don't regret it over waiting for a fishtail/new winter coat though. I figure since SF doesn't really get that cold I'll be okay with some layers under. Now the wait begins...

    As for the skinny thing, what Drew says is pretty spot on. I'm filipino and white, and for the most part growing up, I was a little husky and had to buy adult clothes at times. Now that I'm grown up, eat better and stay active, it's harder to find clothes for me in stock, and I sometimes buy children's sizes for stuff like shirts :\

    It depends on what you want to do, but skip Tivoli as it sucks.

    write me a pm and I'll make some suggestions.
