    Roden Gray and Nomad both still have M online.

    Edit: Oh, maybe you're not looking for the cashmere ones. :embar:

    Checked out that warehouse sale that bawlin posted about... all leftovers from last time's sample sale. A lot of seconds as well so beware.

    Yep, that warehouse sale is all the stuff from WH's previous sample sales. Whatever didn't sell from the previous couple years. I got a nom de guerre hoodie and a fleece blazer. Go if you are a medium, lots of sizes for you.

    Ordered this from Brigade in Ohio. Shipping was crazy fast to NYC, they shipped same day and I ordered later in the afternoon. Great service.

    This is my first wings+horns piece. I honestly just decided to take the plunge because I kept hearing time and time again that they had the best hoodies out there. I have to say I'm beyond impressed. Great fit - perfect for me since I am slim and have looooong arms. The large loop material is warm and perfect. This may become a problem haha.

    Anyways couple of quick questions:
    Is everything else from wings+horns really high quality? What are some of the must have staples that they make? I could never imagine myself paying $200 for a hoodie and thinking I got a great deal, but I do. Can anyone comment on the henleys, or t shirts?

    Also - I know Reigning champ is owned by the same company. Is the fit on their hoodies similar? How about the quality?

    Thanks

    Everything that I've handled is very good quality. I bought a short sleeve henley for about 50% off, for which I would have no trouble paying full price. I can't really imagine it being much better. I really like their chinos, too. Their tiger fleece is pretty nice also, but I've actually never handled the large loop stuff. I prefer RRL for denim, but that's just me. Maybe check out Ssense.com, they stock RC and w+h and list measurements for both brands, so you can easily compare sizing.

    I just recently bought one of their henlees, and I really like it. Its comfortable and it accentuates the fact that I work out. I bought the thicker and warmer henlee, which consists of 92% cotton and 8% cashmere.

    thanks guys. I was looking at that henley - is the 8% cashmere enough to make it really warm? Anyone have any of their t shirts?

    8% cashmere just sounds like a gimmick to charge a lot more, tbh.

    I definitely wouldn't describe the 8% cashmere henley's as "really warm." They are pretty thin. The small amount of cashmere is noticeable though (softer than your typical w+h henley). The highlight of these things is the cut. I've been buying w+h henleys for years (s/s and f/w) and these ones easily have the best fit.

    Are these part-cashmere henleys machine washable? I couldn't find anything on the website or the websites of any of the retailers, so I assumed they were but I figured it can't hurt to check. I really like the darker gray one.

    The henlee's are hand-wash, and lay flat to dry.

    I think most of their collection is either hand-wash or dry clean. `

    Concur.

    You'll have a big list of shit to grab and approximately 80% of it won't be available.
    And your time is worth more than what you would make on proxy fees. Even as a jobless student!


    Honestly, just buy what you, your friends, family want.
    And if you end up not liking something- Buy and Sell is available.

    Wings and Horns sells like hot cakes if you list it at the market price.
