    The denim looks okay - washed? The sneakers are sick though. Anyone know who makes those for w+h?

    We have tons of Wings+Horns FW11 pictures, which we will be putting up in a few weeks. Me, I am getting the heavy jersey blazer jacket, static cotton henleys, a couple of pullover wool sweaters, a really interesting cashmere blend faux cardigan, and 2 pairs of sneakers - a pair of black leather hightop captoes (not unlike the ones shown, but in leather, with a white cap), and a pair of white leather lowtops, which, imo, look nicer than the Achilles - just enough detail that they don't look like a blob of leather.

    The retail on the sneakers will be at about the $400 mark, which seems to be par for the course these days.

    W+H does really good washes. Looks like only indigo denim though which sucks.

    They have a pair of black jeans too. Also, they have a pair of olive heavy jersey cargos (called the "jogger") which looks really nice.

    That's fantastic news. Any info on what they changed in the cut from their last slim fits?

    Just got the Large Loop Terry hoodie in -- got a couple questions. The hoodie is nice, no question about that.

    I got the M, I'm a regular M in everything, shirts, hoodies, and such -- the WH hoodie fits nice, however, when I zip it up its a bit tight on my chest...(I have a moderately big chest), yet the length is perfect and arms are perfect.... Do you think I need a Large?

    Are those shoes coming out spring or fall/winter?

    Edit - Found my answer, nevermind.

    I find they stretch out a bit. Think I'm gonna pickup a pair of the sweatpants in olive on Friday, hope they still have some left.

    I would like to see a pic if you're able to do that. I want to say what 5tan said (i.e. it will stretch) but again a pic would be a great help. You would have no problem moving a SS'11 size M hoodie on B/S if need be. Would probably take it myself. side note: really curious to see if they'll do the sweat shorts in heather olive and not just charcoal/black. Really need those color variations. For people who didn't see the F/W Sueded Fleece in brown - it was a really cool option and great change of pace from the typical shades of gray. I think the olive will be even nicer..(torn on trying to decide between a red hoodie or olive one as my one hoodie for the season..)

    Picked up the new large loop terry hoodie from Holt's today and I must say I definitely prefer it over my tiger fleece hoodie. It is incredibly comfortable and the fit is absolutely spot on. I definitely recommend it.

    Downtown, yeah. Get off at the granville street station if you're on the sky train and then cross the street. You can't really miss it. I wouldn't bother going to check out the wings stuff. They have the nep dungaree shirts, a few macs in the khaki colour, and the grey large loop terry in small and medium. I took the last large, so that's all they have atm.

    It's on the bottom floor in the mens streetwear department. It's on a rack that's near the wall of denim. There's literally four pieces, so they're a little hard to catch. I can't stand the staff at Holt's. They're all stuck up their own ass and aren't helpful in the slightest. Hopefully you have a better experience, haha.

    staff is same as any other corporate establishment. prices are quite high.

    basically holt is that really popular overpriced restaurant. if you want a cozier nook just go to nomad or (j+o i guess)

    dude holt staff is the most pretentious bunch ever.
    for minimum wage workers, they are pretty high on themselves.

    im surprised you got it at holt and not roden gray.
    much better bunch of people.
