    I think the FW12 camo bush pants are one of the best pieces to come out of wings+horns. That and the the FW11 tiger fleece. The basics this season--the cotton cashmere henleys were pretty nice if on deep discount, and I actually did like the purple henley, but I think besides the bush pants, none of it compelled me to buy at retail this season. I think their SS offerings are usually not as interesting as FW, but I hope FW13 brings back more of the stuff that made them who they are today.

    Yeah I agree, I feel that the current w+h stuff has been kind of lazy in their design. There hasn't been any stand-out pieces, and honestly I miss those classic military designs. I for one especially loved that mk2 wool field jacket from 09 and that 25oz mackinaw jacket from 08. They should definitely look into the past and bring something like that back on the table.

    Really I don't find it that boxy - you can use the drawstrings on the side make it more fitted. I snagged one this year from yoox as I've been looking for a fishtail (even though its not your traditional fishtail) / trench coat / wax outerwear for awhile. For the price I paid I like the piece. Just enough room to layer a chunky knit underneath and seems to do a pretty good job of keeping out the rain / wind

    how much can I sell that grey/black varsity jacket for? I have one in XS and I don't wear it enough to justify keeping it. I hardly see it on B&S either.

    I agree that with all the outerwear they didn't have anything great this year. But the other stuff I got (enzyme fleece moto sweatpants, henleys, colorblock sweatshirt, black camo bush pants, tapered westpoint twill chinos) is all terrific. I agree that the camo bush pants were the must-have of the collection.

    I love the fishtail parka. It's been my go-to jacket this winter and to be honest I actually kind of like the boxy fit around the shoulders. The only thing qualm I have is that the bottom seems to flare out, and if I tighten it up with the drawstrings, the bunched up fabric looks weird. Other than that, it's warm, durable, and crafted well :)

    How much did you buy it for? Honestly, I'd be interested in buying it.

    Yeah, I feel I'm more interested in F/W from W+H than I'am their S/S stuff. The FW Large Loop hoodie and tiger fleece are my favorite hoodies, Which I'd take over their S/S Hoodies. Like someone said the sweatpants were great for about 4 months, then they just sagged like a ma fucker! looking like I got a load of doo doo in my pants, and plus I would have to walk with my hands in my pockets, pulling the pockets to the side of my leg, so my junk wasn't outlined so perfectly. LOL. The only thing left to get from this past FW season is the camo jacquard bush pant.

    Has anyone seen any looks coming next FW?

    The MK2 Field Jacket is the only W+H piece I ever regret passing on.

    I wish they would just put out a pimped out version of a classic peacoat with nice details (maybe a slightly different classic yet technical collar, tasteful leather trim, flannel/blanket lining, sexy buttons, etc). They can go wild with the pockets or whatever because that seems to be a W+H 'thing' but no ribbed collar or leather sleeves please...
