    I had a similar experience. 32 (my natural waist size) was not exactly painted on but it was tight. I'd expect them to stretch a bit and loosen up as they are raw denim. I would have picked up the straights in a 31 if they had them there, but no stock left.

    I got to see the olive fishtail parka in person today as well. The thing is beastly to say the least, pretty damn hefty for a parka. Quite laughable as they were selling it in LA. I don't know how many wears I could get out of that coat if I owned such a coat out here. Regardless, the piece is really nice, substantial, and has a high quality feel to it... but damn pricey :brick:

    I bought the camo pants today. They aren''t really any more substantial than the regular chinos. I never tried on the ss11 bush pants so I can't really compare. I think sizing up 1 from w+h chino size is probably a good rule of thumb, though for me I'm a 31 in both (I wear my chinos a bit looser than most ppl I suppose). btw they are awesome. Pretty unique and the fit is spot on imo.

    I tried on the cords too. They are nice, fit is pretty similar to to the chinos. Apparently they are a bit less slim than the fw11 cords.

    Does anybody else feel like the Acrimony model doesn't exactly do the best job of modeling W+H?

    I really hope the straight fits that I ordered don't end up looking like this on me.

    ^ looks like one leg is longer than the other and his hip is fucked up. You should be good.

    Hmm interesting what you guys are saying, I just picked up the raw straight denim and went with my tts and it fits perfect on me. I guess it's just me. I actually like these denim more than the RRL denim :embar:

    I think the straights fit more like a slim fit from other brands, I'd get them sized down 1, but I'd want to try that on first.

    The slims are too skinny for me, and I like skinny/tapered jeans. This is from someone who used to wear petit standard sized down 2.

    If anyone sees a wine henley in size small, or wants to get rid of theirs, pm me. I've been looking for it pretty much since they sold out a month ago. I can't believe they made such a small quantity of them.

    Quick question - did anyone find themselves sizing down on the basic long sleeve from delivery 1? I'm a true large but the one I bought (in a size L) fits like a parachute on me.

    I picked up the Heritage Research parka yesterday. I was close to buying it online but wanted to see in person first. After seeing it person I couldn't resist. The thing is awesome.

    Funny thing is I found it quite lightweight for a parka, though I live in Canada where temps can get to -40C so yeah.

    I have two of the od henleys in size small (regular size) and they fit perfect. Pretty sure they are the same cut with buttons.

    Does anyone know American stores that are stocking the slim fit raws this season? I don't wanna deal with Canadian stores in case I size wrong.

    Does anybody know where I can get the Heritage Research waxed bomber (black) in sz. XS? Roden Gray would probably be my best bet but they've been unclear about whether or not they're getting it.
