With the winter sale going on and stuff, I figured I should do a quick writeup on last year's duffle coat. It's very similar to this year's iteration - the only difference being a slightly different texture on the outer layer as far as I can see. If you're considering buying the jacket for €289, or even €231 with the 20% promo code, don't. It's just not worth it. I paid like half that for mine, and while it's nice and warm, there are some issues with it: - Weird fit. The coat is pretty heavy, and paired with the weird fit, it puts a lot of stress on your neck. It's like the jacket was made for people with forward head posture, and thus is pretty uncomfortable for everyone else. I don't imagine they've changed that with this year's iteration. If you have a good posture and wear this jacket, it's almost like it's being pushed back in the neck region creating a ballooned look from behind. The arms are also pretty tight, so if you have decent sized arms it won't be very comfortable. - Cotton lining. While this may be more of a personal opinion, I don't find it a good idea to use cotton lining in jackets. It gets dirty pretty fast, and with the wool content of this jacket it cannot be washed (dry-clean only). For reference, I'm 6'1 and 200 lb. and I wore medium. It no longer fits me, unfortunately. Would I buy it again for €135 or whatever I paid for it? Yes. Would I do the same for €289/€231? No. It's a nice jacket but given the issues and price increase, it's just not worth it. That's my opinion anyway, ymmv. @Nylon: Hah, I just realized now you sent me a message back in January. I didn't get an email about it either so I didn't notice before now. Sent you a reply now.

They shrink a little when you wash them for the first time. I wouldn't worry too much. The top compartment does look a bit loose though, perhaps a bit too loose? It's up to you, just keep in mind they will shrink a bit.

I hope they see my email regarding cancellation of an order before they ship it out :/ Alternatively I might try to call them tomorrow, anyone know if they answer on Saturday/Sundays?

Prices on the european site remain unchanged (i.e. full price). Their Instagram post said "20-40% on selected items," earlier today, but it looks like they've deleted it.

[Quote]Some fit pics of the Alfred pant would be great, man.

Somewhere on La Brea Avenue, I don't think they've announced the exact address yet. It was supposed to open today but it's been delayed even further.

[Quote]They'll most likely look baggy. You need a decent pair of calves to fill them out, not to mention they're pretty long.

[Quote]If I remember correctly, last time I returned something they said the credit would never expire, and stay in your account until you use it up.

If anyone from ILU is reading this, could you please avoid using WebM and switch to another format? It's not supported by Safari, and instead throws you an error which stops the script and renders the whole preview gallery useless (viewing pictures doesn't work, either).

[Quote]It's actually very comfortable, feels nice and warm. Haven't experienced any "pulling" of my shirt. The cotton doesn't cause my much friction.

Thanks! [Image] Ha, it was just me trying to show the pockets were sewn shut. I cut the thread a few hours ago and they were fine after that, so I'll remove the picture now that it's been cleared up.

Received the jacket. Here are some things I noticed: + Slim fit. + Hidden "pocket" on the right sleeve. + Feels nice and warm. +/- Sleeves are shorter than usual. - Smells disgusting.  - Dry clean only. - Cuffs are pretty tight. - Zipper on hidden pocket is awful, near useless. [Image]

Good riddance in my opinion, didn't like that patch at all. I bought the navy one on Saturday, it should arrive tomorrow. I'll try to get some fit pics out shortly thereafter.
