    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Damn. I was hoping to get the cowichan vest. Was gonna order from the site but got lazy (plus I feel stupid paying for shipping when I live 5 minutes from the item's physical location).

    Well

    I'm not sure of anything anymore.

    Yeah, camel jacket is pretty nice, pockets could be fixed by... moving the buttons?

    I agree with all of you guys saying prices are a little nuts right now.
    I've been waiting for the moc coat since the look book a few months ago. Once the varsity came out at $880 I figured the coat would be around the same price. I also have a 35% off coupon and even with that It's a $600+ coat. And the pockets look real awkward on the new shots but when you look at the lookbook and consider the 100% wool it seems like those pockets would settle with some wear. But shit, that price.

    It's actually not 100% wool, it's 90/10 wool/nylon. At the old price point, that wasn't too bad, considering the W+H cuts are very good.

    I think pockets could just be fixed by tucking in the flaps. At any rate, it's sold out of every size except XL in the camel colour :/ Makes me sad that, because it means we'll prolly keep seeing these prince increases, year after year, until the retail-price purchases level out.

    If I remember correctly, it was already $880-900 two seasons ago when I picked it up in heather grey. I can't remember the exact price. It's still my favourite piece of outerwear.

    The pocket flaps should flatten over time. The fabric doesn't look significantly thicker than mine, and my pocket flaps are fine.

    Their retail prices are actually more than fair for the quality and cut they produce. Compare to established designer brand names who would probably charge like $1200-1500+ for the exact same coat.

    There are plenty people who will buy out their stuff as their exposure increases every year. W+H was only cheap in the beginning because they were a new brand. Quality has roughly been the same but demand clearly hasn't so prices go up, similar to Common Projects. Same shit every year.

    Good looking coat. But price is disgusting. I believe I can do better at 1k price point (retail + HST). Maybe i will kop @ 50%

    They won't be around at 50% off. They're already almost sold out.

    Checked out the retail store. It's nice, people are cool.

    All prices are at retail. I'll pick up a Henley and maybe a sweater from Reigning Champ- too expensive otherwise.
    No real outwear yet.

    Too many employees there though. Unless some of them are working out of the office there.

    Can someone tell me about their raw denim please. I've been trying to find info on the sizing online without much luck. Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure the office is in the same building.

    The office is literally behind the divider. You can see it through the cracks.

    Really cool space IMO :slayer:

    I think a retail store is gonna make a ton of money in Vancouver, especially from new customers who may never have heard of them.

    Yeah, the sample sale was there last year. Sort of an obscure location, but probably has a low overhead cost. Roden Gray's stock has been pretty shitty lately, so hopefully these guys hold up the load... and maybe pull stuff for the "heavily invested return customers".

    $1000 topcoats are starting to make sense now.
