    Yeah, I know that you guys have all been waiting for these. So, here is a link to some of the new W+H stuff. Hmmm, looks a lot like Spruce stuff. Nice typography though. The branding is obviously kin to, but not the same as, the W&H, Wings & Horns, line.

    I am doing laundry.

    Yeah, Loopwheeler hoodies are really nice too. However, I'm of the mind that they are not really comparable. Loopwheeler has a very classic aesthetic, with the appeal lying primarily in the material. W+H hoodies have a much more modern, nearly performance sportswear, appeal. The construction and trims are better, but the basic difference comes in the fit. Loopwheelers are meant to fit like classic hoodies. There is deliberately a little more room throughout. W+H hoodies are slim on the body and have a tapered shape, and the long cuffs and hem entend the line, rather than truncating it as the classic sweatshirt shape does.

    Anywhere to get these in the tri-state area? For that matter, do we have any members in JP picking up the slack now that xcoldricex is back in the states?

    Heard that Huf and American Rag will be carrying them (thanks to Minya from the other SF W&H thread). Was at American Rag today and they didn't have anything, since their summer sale's still going on. E-mailed Huf to ask, but don't know if i'll get a response. If you hear anything do me a favor and let me know? Thanks As for the tri-state (again, thanks to Minya): Famous Friends, Fred Segal Manhattan, Nom De Guerre.

    this is all true, although i thought i might add that LW has a slim hoodie that is very fitted, slim on the body and tapered, complete with long cuffs in a lighter sweater material.

    FAIK, the Japanese retailers got their shipments first. Kane, feel free to add some actual information dude. Inquiring minds want to know. As for purchasing them, Peasant (www.peasantonline.com) will be an SF affiliate once Brian gets back online.
