    Last question - what kind of quality is the moto hoody? Is it closer to the old jersey hoodies or the large loop? Reason I ask is because I think I've worn my large loop almost every day for a year straight and it still looks brand new, whereas the jersey hoodies completely stretch out and look pretty much horrible after extended wear. Hopefully someone with either piece knows what I'm talking about.

    Im about 5'6 38 " chest and bought an S for a more fitted look. Arms stretch out a tad but the weave is super tight. Quality hoody IMO. Worn it on multiple occasions and it has now set hasn't stretched anymore from what I've seen.


    Anyone know when the next SS12 shipment drops? Really wanna see the details on the parka..

    If we thinking of the same piece, the navy 'parka' is already out at Holt Renfrew...

    Yep. I briefly checked it out. Seemed to be well-made. Retails for $495 CDN which I guess is cheap compared to how much W+H outerwear usually costs.

    Does it have any waterproof properties?

    No more than a ventile cotton jacket normally has...which is to say a very small amount of water resistance, with heaving rain soaking through.

    Ventile cotton was developed for military smocks - like Burberry's gabardine.

    Anyone kop the cotton DR yet? Looking for measurements/sizing advice for a Medium and/or small. I'm usually a medium in W+H (their stuff has very narrow shoulders), but I wanna be sure when sale season rolls around.

    This will be my one big kop for the S/S, methinks

    Tried it on last weekend- I'm a medium for sweatshirts and hoodies, small for sweatpants and shorts, 31 for pants and a small in most outerwear and a medium in the DR fit perfectly.

    I'd say they do. I'm consistently a size 44, and the size 44 mids fit great.

    FYI, the W+H sneakers are basically a Common Projects shoe - they use the same last - so the sizing is pretty much the same as CP.

    I have the grey suede hi tops from this season and I sized them the same as my CP size if that helps.
