    what size does he wear in the wings + horns?

    I believe a M in just about everything...

    i think it's pretty accurate that he is a size Medium in everything.

    he is about 3" taller than me, otherwise pretty similar measurements.

    regarding the Blazer, overall I don't think it's worth the retail price.
    very casual, almost like a sweater, quite thin.
    it is nice but for $300+ I think you could spend it better.

    if it was $180-200 or a bit higher, it be an okay buy.

    Totally agree, I believe the 'value' that Wings+Horns had is mostly gone, and it's only the tip of the iceberg as far as that goes... hope everyone has some fat wallets for fall.

    Anyone find out who is stocking the blazers yet stateside? Not a fan at all of the linen blazer.

    nothing yet outside of the linen [​IMG] one at Acrimony...

    which if I wore a lot of navy pants, I might be all over. But I don't.

    One of the sales associates at acrimony emailed me yesterday letting them know they got a huge order of wings+horns stuff from Japan in. The new items should be up on the website tomorrow or the next day. He also mentioned that going forward into f/w11 they will be carrying almost the entire line of wings offerings.

    looks like Acrimony is experiencing the SF effect on the new products. Either someone over there is following this thread or slack's got them trained well because I've never seen them list measurements before (for the shorts at least- much appreciated [​IMG]).

    I got the linen blazer otw from AC. 'Specially since I am in the process of beating up my pair of N&F x Momotaro's, which means i'll be wearing them alot over the upcoming months (until the humidity takes over in june/aug).

    Edit : Just checked AC's blog. Slack should totally model for webshops in exchange for discounts.

    Acr has been adding measurements sporadically for years. Why more stores don't do it is crazy, at least it gives their employees something to do other than stand around and badger customers.
