Sale ends soon. Flash sale site so be quick if you want one. Men's mostly s-xl, women's has xs-xl iirc. The exclusive is the best deal.

So it's like BeyondTheRack where you need to be a member?

List of prices and selection, just for posterity is case we ever need to check up on prices? We had that CMFR $300 sample sale back a few months ago, which really set the bar nice and low. How does this TheVolts flash sale compare?

Yep, membership.
Prices are higher than the sample sale but they have a decent selection and sizes. There might be another sale around February but that's unconfirmed. The volts is more that 50% off so still a really good deal. However you can risk waiting for the potential sale and save a bit more.

Gormley for $436 (or even the sample sale price of $300) makes me want to hang myself. :lol:

Although it's not to my taste, the Exclusive Oxton certainly seems like the best bargain out of the whole selection. Go get 'em!

Thanks for posting the pic. :)

Originally it showed as right-side up here, now upside-down.

And it's right-side up in the Hot Deals thread you just made.

Curious and curiouser.

How did it even get inverted in the first place? :lol:
it was the software i was using to block out some info... when i saved it inverted it... weird

I hope your right about the fit being TTS. Copped a S as per your advice, it should be fine but if not... guess it will go straight to the BST

Only the debut season (2010-2011) were true to size. BananaWeed owns one of the yet-unnamed "unisex" bombers from that debut year. It's distinct in that it had a huge CMFR square-shaped logo patch on the arm. Seasons after this have the thin crescent moon emblem.

2011-2012 came around and CMFR expanded their product line to four items: Oxton men's bomber, Gormley men's parka, Roxborough women's bomber, and Avenue women's parka. I was interested in the Gormley and ordered a small, thinking it was still true to size and similar to the Moose Knuckles Stirling, where my size is also a small. After all, Mark Peros was a co-founder of Moose Knuckles, and you can see CMFR has Moose Knuckles DNA in its styling (four pockets, dedicated collar, non-tunnel hood). BananaWeed just got back from a window shopping trip where he confirmed that the 2011-2012 season CMFR jackets had sized up by one. In a small panic, I called the store where I ordered my Gormley and got them to downsize me by one, and fortunately it was correct.

I would imagine the current 2012-2013 releases fit similar to the previous year, now that the company seems to have worked out its initial growing pains and chugging forward more smoothly.
