For that price i'd think about a Real Mccoys m51 with liner. I'm saving up for the liner….love my M51. You could also look at the RM M65 with removable liner. Love mine. More versatile that way.

Cheers for the suggestions, could you supply me with some links?
I usually stay away from japanese brands as their sizing is oddly small to my fairly limited experience .

Trust me mate the RM M51 and M65 don't come up small. Frans Boone measurements are pretty good. The M51 is supposed to fit big. I see loads that look way too fitted for me. Question of taste I guess. I have an Arcteryx Veilance Monitor that I like for rainy days but the fit is a bit too modern and clean for me. Prefer the original Smiling

You could also look here. Great shop in Canada that mark down if you ask. Really helpful regarding sizing too.

Question for smokers, of which I am not.

Just got a Six-Five delivered from YJP, and the previous owner was clearly a smoker.

The materials are as follows, but any suggestions on how to get the smell out of the fabric?

Rayon, Nylon, Polyester, Cotton.

I have fabreeze'd the suit bag and it and the jacket are currently on the washing line, as I thought the breeze may help. Happy to look at dry cleaners, but would rather avoid cleaning, if possible.

Cheers. Cool

Hanging it on the line is the best bet, I still reckon you'll still be able to smell it though. Bite the bullet and take it to the cleaners.

Does Ten C hit the sales or worth full retail price? 1500-1800€ depending on the liner seems pretty steep Puzzled
Have got a field jacket with liner, size runs true imo. Jacket fits me perfectly with a heavy sweatshirt underneath, no liner. Liner's one of these, not at all bulky so doesn't make a huge difference when fitted, jacket's just a touch tighter across the shoulders. I think the shearling liners add a load more bulk. Seen it hit sales before, if you can get what you want for half off, it's worth the outlay.

I'm sure the Frizmworks m65 is only £200 at all blues Co, includ s a removable inner, probably not on the same level as the McCoy's but worth a punt at that money.

Karakoram style down parka less than £200!Eek
Is this legit?
It’s Primark pricing, must be shit quality even though it looks rather good.

A few of us are trying to sort a mass order from frizmworks, @YLAup is up for organising it. Said he would start a thread about it

The quality is great, I have a few pieces from them. Never owned McCoy’s bits as the pricing seems insane to me. Not sure how the fashion industry has convinced people a quality jacket can’t be had for £200… that’s a lot of money.

Mccoys is overpriced but the materials and craftsmanship will be better. Not £500 better though.
If we get a large order going here we will probably rinse the parkas and someone will miss out.

I suppose it depends on the definition of quality. You wouldn’t get a goretex down jacket for sub £200 outside of the sales. If you then want it to look half way decent you’ll pay more again.

Fair enough, maybe one of these days I’ll bite the bullet and go for a big dog RMC piece.

The 3 bits I have from frizm are all make in Korea. When I was in Korea I did notice most of the domestic brands that all the cool kids were wearing in Hongdae were actually relatively cheap (e.g. Uniform Bridge, Covernat) but the quality was always there.

I get that goretex and 850 fill down is likely to be overkill for most people though. There will be tons of perfectly adequate jackets available for £200
