    Appreciate the pics man. Glad I didn't jump on this deal because I would be paying the $7 to return also. I'm sure it's warm as hell though.

    ^Lol This is my Club Monaco one from last winter. Prob gonna sell it though.
    You should post more WAYWT, man. Always dominating your style. Do you mind providing some details on the sweats? Still searching for the perfect pair, and I like the slimness of the one you're wearing.

    Thank for posting your fit pics.

    I bought the same jacket, same size, and I'm even smaller than you. I hope they do free returns. BTW, I don't think they offer an XS.

    Unless it's one of those serious wool peacoats made of the extra heavy wool and lined and shit. Just a regular sterlingwear surplus one is not gonna be enough at all for winter. Will be fine for most of fall and early spring though. In a city it's not quite as bad because you're usually on salted sidewalks or going from subway to building to bus kinda thing so you're not outside quite as often but if you're in vermont it's gonna be a bit more "rustic". Prob should just cave and get a superwarm down jacket with a hood and waterproof. Could probably scoop one up on ebay or something if you didn't want to pay a bunch for a non-stylish jacket


    Damn. Well I'll be going here for four years so I might as well invest in a nice jacket that looks good.

    I've been looking through but it's pretty tough to find one that is nice looking in addition to warm, though willycheesesteak's looked damn nice

    This is a LIGHT down jacket, I have one, waterproof, the slash pockets are very insulated, a coat for sleety miserable days rather than arctic ones:

    The quality is very good but has all sorts of logos on it.

    Yeah that BoO looks pretty nice but no way that thing is warm enough for true Canadian winter weather (and by "true" I mean sans vcv).
