Didn’t the old site just sell what appear to be the same 2 packs for $30 (with an additional $5 discount for prime members)? I know that site is sold out now and nobody has a time machine, but just saying this doesn’t strike me as a screaming deal.
@Odysseus1001 Yeah, that’s what I thought too! I bought a pair (largely because of the price) and was pleasantly surprised at the perfect fit! I even brought one to work today, and wore it home for the first time; it was good timing because the temperature was down in the 50s.
The only thing I’d add is that after I tried it on (to check the fit) for the first time, before washing it, it left all this dark fuzz on my white shirt, much to my dismay. I promptly threw it in the wash and that’s not a problem anymore.
@Odysseus1001 Yes and I actually was hoping they would come around again, because I got the 2-pack from that other site for myself, and then wanted to get another 2-pack in a smaller size for my teenager. Two hoodies for $40 is still a pretty good deal, especially since these are nice and cozy.
@Raysrny I’m with you. Kills your peripheral vision, which could get you killed. Leave the hood down, and it fills with snow, (if snowing). Great under waterproof/resistant outer layer, but you get “collar bulk” holding more snow. Took me forever to find a warm vest without a fold over collar. Just need a jacket now. Any links much appreciated.
@ACustomer@carl669@ircon96@Kyeh Fuck no, all I can say is GTFO, man. I know you (“A customer” with hidden user info) come here just for stirring up shit, and personally I’m getting sick of it. I hope my angry reply pleased you and made you smile “Heh, Got 'em!”
EDIT, seriously, we do need some “block this user” or other anti-troll mechanism here.
Ooof, looks like the sizing is waaaaay off. The men’s and women’s size charts are the same chart with a few additions: The women’s chart is labelled “oversize” and the W numeric sizes have been added, while the men’s chart is labelled “Modern size” which seems to be the attempt at new terminology for the 2±sizes-too-small stuff that used to be labelled “Asian Fit” sizing.
This stuff’s not cheap enough for me to guess just how small it’s gonna be. The last time I gambled, the “3x” for the fat guy (me) turned out to be too tight even for the XL-wearing fit young men of the house. Bleh.
@blaadnort My fit was perfect just by going off the chart; I would normally wear medium or large, depending on the garment, and was a little skeptical of the “small” recommendation based on the chart, but the fit is great!
I’m wondering about the fit too. With the size charts being pretty much the same as far as measurements go I’m thinking about getting my guy the women’s option just to get the oversized fit. The only other difference besides getting a regular fit would be the zipper will zip up on opposite sides. Hmm… would he even notice? Probably not!
BTW, I bought the modern fit 100% cotton tank tops from Side Deal, sizing up 1 size, and to my surprise they fit great! I’m waiting for my 2nd order now, great deal when using my $5 coupon from the mehrathon!
@Atomizer@blaadnort@Lynnerizer “the zipper will zip up on opposite sides. Hmm… would he even notice? Probably not!” Yes, he would! One of my kids bought me a jacket home from an Alaska trip years ago that had the zipper on the opposite side. It was a nice jacket but I’ve never worn it because the zipper was wrong-to me.
Yeah I get it, most of the men in my family probably wouldn’t be comfortable wearing it either. Not my guy though, he’s just not that picky these days, especially when he’s not paying! Lol He never was any kind of fashionessta, neat and clean is the perfect look!
@Atomizer@blaadnort@krmugn52@Lynnerizer It’s not even so much the look or fit, but the ‘wrongness’ of how it would feel. To demonstrate, do any of the following with the hand opposite of which you usually use; brush your teeth, make the first loop while tying your shoes (bet I couldn’t even do that one), flip your eggs, zip up your current jacket (got to switch hands while inserting the zipping part to start, too), or any other task which you habitually do with your dominant hand. Sure it can be done, but it’s way more difficult or awkward. Like I said, I’d have trouble tying my shoes at all if I had to switch which hand I started with. I’d essentially have to re-learn how to do that task. Obviously, the more difficult or taxing the task, the harder to switch hands.
I WAS thinking the same thing BUT…
They must be different versions of the jacket because the men’s 3x in blk/charcoal is sold out but they still have it in the 3x women’s version.
Recently got these from another site. If you’re buying the women’s, get the size you usually wear in men’s. Also, they are long, like go over your butt long. Imo good for hanging out at home (very cozy), but not as stylish as they look in the pic.
I bought these last time. Both of them had a $59.99 price sticker on the bag they came in, which was a laugh. Also the first one’s seams at the wrist began to fray, and needed fixing, but it was an easy fix.
They are, however, nicely warm, and cozy for that matter.
