    I wonder how warm the wooly plaids are. I spend most of my time in Los Angeles, I wonder if I should bother getting them as they won't see much wear. I'm certain they will be nice for my trips to Chicago. Anybody handled these things?

    Echoing the thoughts of others - I'm so happy W+H SS '12 looks to be a bust...cause W+H FW '11 is looking like it will clean out my wallet.

    The Egyptian shirt color looks killer, along with the wool mac....and I've been needing a navy suit lately too...

    They're thick. I handled it at Gravity Pope today and contemplated buying it, but it was a super mild day in Vancouver today so I wasn't really keen on buying a thick wool plaid.

    If you can afford $250 for a piece you'll rarely wear, go for it. They're nice.

    The navy corded cloth pants from f/w '10 are my favorite pants. I'll attest to the waist being about 2" bigger than tagged while the rest of the pants remain pretty slim. This results in a perfect fit for me and I've been waiting to buy another pair for a while now. I just copped the khaki colored ones in size 28 (incredibly hard to find) so I am pretty stoked. I was debating between the khaki and charcoal but that decision was made for me because someone else copped the 28 in charcoal.

    The navy wool mac looks like the truth.

    I despise whoever bought the sz 28 corded pant in charcoal from RG. Can anyone let me know if there is a sz 28 anywhere else online yet?

    I would do a lot of unspeakable things for some of these pieces...

    I definitely wasn't expecting the melton wool mac coat to be priced the same as the Heritage Research stuff.

    Also, Acrimony and Four Horsemen have a zip-front flannel shirt which might be a lighter alternative to the brushed wool plaid shirt.

    Finally, a fit pic of the bomber and fishtail @ acrimony.

    Maybe with good reason, don't really like the look of the collar folded up, zipped, and unpopped. If you unfold it, it's rather large.

    The zip flannel looks like its a zipper and buttons up the front?

    The zip-front flannel shirt does have both zipper (RiRi) and buttons. There's also a blue colorway (as seen in the lookbook) which I like better.

    Zip flannels fabric patterns are really ugly this season...

    Acrimony has the rest of their second shipment up it seems. Corded cloth pants in 28!

    I really wanted to like the raw denim, but the fit is not for me. I tried TTS in the straight fit, but it was already skin tight over my calves and a little roomy in the top block. Shame, really. The denim is also lighter in weight than I expected.

    Whoever is making their patterns for their pants, across the board, is doing a terrible job. I really hope W+H takes a look in their upcoming seasons to address it... if they were paying attention they would have already, it's not a new sentiment.
