Hey guys, I'm looking for a warm jacket or hoodie that makes a short and skinny person look good. Price level is anything below $150. However if it's above $100 then I'd like one that I can wear daily, I don't want people to recognize I'm wearing the same hoodie or jacket everyday. I have neither of them in my wardrobe and the weather's getting really cold. My measurements are

5ft7
chest 35
waist 28
hip 36
weight 123lbs

If you guys have sth used that you don't want anymore I will considering buying it. I'm a dead poor college student but I'd like to dress nice, too so please help me out
Thank you all!

Hmmm...

I just got my wife an extra small slim fit Spruce hoodie, which fits her dead on, and you are about the same size. I might recommend that, or a size small slim fit (I think that xs are nearly impossible to find) in a neutral color like the black tiger or grey stripe (I have both). I haven't spoken with him in a bit, but Donnell at Uncle Otis had some size small slim fit w+h hoodies, and may still have some. They will be at the top of your price limit, but definitely worth it. They are short (a medium ends just under my beltline, and I am 5'11", so a small will hit just slightly under that for you (the xs hits at the beltline on my wife). Tell Donnell that Fok sent you.

Good luck.

I'm inclined to buy Spruce as I heard a lot of good things about them lately, but is it thick and warm enough? I found this Spruce hoodie on SF the other day:



I was late and it was sold to a SuFuer

Thick and warm enough for what? Where? They are not as warm as say, my Engineered Garments Thermal lined hoodie, but they are plenty warm... especially this year's tiger fleece (w+h).

This year's tiger fleece from W+H is more than plenty warm.. thought I was a Thanksgiving turkey in that thing.

33 chest? 5'3" Are you guys just messing with me
Unless you want a super loose fit, you'll need an xs in Spruce or w+h. A more affordable alternative is the thermal lined American Apparel hoodie. I say xs for you, s for the other guy.

Warm enough for Bloomington, IL. It's freezing here I don't even want to smoke anymore because of the weather. How much and where can I buy the W + H tiger fleece from?

I'm still wondering about the first guy with a 35" chest, 28" waist, and 36" hips.

Ha! Where are you from? If you're cold now, you're in for a surprise in early January.

On your next trip to Chicago, hit up one of the resale shops on North Ave. People get cold here, die, then have their jackets donated. The other day I found a really nice Spiewak duffel for 25 bucks. There's also a place around there called Untitled that, on occasion, has some decent stuff on sale.
