I got this today http://www.next.co.uk/g791068s1#679431g79

It's darker in person and it's 50 % down, pretty decent for the money I'd say.

Or you could go for http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/uk/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=5232446080017&parentid;=MENS-COATS-JACKETS-EU#/

I tried it on and quite liked it but next one is heavier so more suitable for colder weather so I went for it instead since I'm in the north

I'm looking at the alpha industries n-3b slim fit (one with the orange lining)

Anyone got a Nanamica Cruiser Gore tex? Seems like the fit true to size? Also, what's the quality and fit like?

Really couldn't rate the Uniqlo any more highly. Almost too warm a lot of the time and packs down to nothing. The weight and collarless nature allow you to wear it under any jacket or coat without looking too bulky.

Technically, the MB might be superior but it's more expensive, the logo would bug me, and it's gonna be aggs to get from JP. Don't even bother.

i've finally managed to narrow my search down to 2 options:

Iron Heart

The Real McCoy's

has anyone got any experience with either of these? any recommendations?

I'm sure the Iron Heart one will be very good quality but it's needlessly fussy, would rather get a proper one.
I've just ordered the Carhartt one (they call it Sheffield, fuck knows why), always found Carhartt decent enough quality.
If I had more money I would have ordered a Buzz Rickson from History Preservation Society through a US proxy.

my biased opinion would say mccoys, but they are two very different jackets and it ultimately depends on what you prefer.
It's worth visiting the store however as the guys are great for a chat, and I've actually put my name down for them to order a navy one in for me

Anyone know what deck jackets dsm were selling downstairs last year? I tried one on and they were great - would it have been golden bear?

If its not Vis then Blue De Paname is downstairs so could be them, don't stock Golden Bear as far as I remember

Could have been a CDG Homme version, but I dont recall them doing one for while, could be wrong though

Yeah. If it's was left at the stairs and by the rack of shoes, then Blue De Paname. Really big collar on them.

RE: the deck jackets
They both have exactly the same functions (minus armpit 'oles and buttons on cuff for IH one). It depends whether you want the extra flare or if you wanna pay top dollar for something plain.

Edit: I prefer the IH one.
