Of particular note about the displayed selection is that the middle item is the Impact Oxton bomber (a new edition just released in the 2012-2013 season, with a waxed linen/cotton outer shell) and the middle-right item is the Exclusive Oxton bomber that has the all-black treatment and dyed black mink fur. The rest are standard CMFR releases.

All are a good value, but the Exclusive Oxton seems to be the best bargain, if you're into the all-black look. Good prices for the premium parka market, especially considering CMFR is one of the few rising star all-Canadian companies when Moose Knuckles is made in Vietnam and Nobis is made in China.

In my experience, the fit is similar to the Canada Goose "regular insulated" line, such as the Chilliwack. If you wear a size XS Chilliwack, there's a good bet you'll also need a size XS Oxton. This comes from my experience owning a CMFR Gormley. You will likely need to size down as I did.

Good luck to all. XxXSnake23XxX confirmed this was authorized by CMFR founder Mark Peros.

If it fits like CG, you're definitely a small.

Chest size, people. Chest size is the foundation for fit. You could be 160lbs, 6", big chest and small waist, or you could be the opposite at 160lbs, 6", fat bum but skinny torso. I'm exaggerating but you get my drift.

I've got a 36" chest. Size XS for me. For the record, I've got a slim athletic build, 155lbs, 5'10". So not much different from you, I would imagine. XS or S possibly, depending on your chest size. Get to a store where you can try on a CMFR jacket to be sure. List of stockists: http://cmfrcanada.com/shop.php Unfortunately the CMFR website is sorely lacking in a size chart. If you can't find CMFR in stores, find your Canada Goose Chilliwack size and gamble. Chilliwacks are a dime a dozen so you shouldn't have as much trouble tracking one down, even if you have to try on one that you find from a Kijiji seller.

I am a 40R in a suit. Medium or Large for this jacket? Looking at a bomber. I wear a 34/35 sleeve average build.

Also wondering how these jackets compare to CG or Nobis? Anyone have any comments? Looking for a cheaper alternative to those two because there has to be something out there just as good but half the cost because name brand isn't as big (yet). Would that be the CMFR's?

Thanks. My chest isn't HUGE, but it's not invisible. Working on my pectorals ;D I think S would be good...
I'm looking at some pics that BananaWeed posted with his jackets and he is wearing a Size M.

I need something that isn't so .... common. No CG, Nobis, PJS, MK for me. (No offence.)
CMFR and possible Mackage is what I'm looking for. My girlfriend just bought a Mackage though >_>"

Thanks OP! Picked up the all black exclusive in size M. Had to wait 10 minutes for the previous guy to release it from his cart. If you guys are still deciding, make sure to add it to your cart and you have 10 minutes to decide. Sizes are running out!

Can't comment on suit-to-outerwear sizing, unfortunately. As for comparisons to the other big players such as Canada Goose and friends, check out the link in my signature and read some reviews.

I paid an arm and a leg for my CMFR Gormley and that was even after a 15% discount in January 2012. I want to hang myself every time I see large sales on CMFR like this one, and the funny thing is that these aren't even the lowest prices RFD has seen on CMFR (there was a $300 sample sale a few months back that really set the bar nice and low for prices). :lol: The funny thing is that here on RFD I am known for sniffing out really rock bottom deals on Canada Goose, never having paid retail for one, and I got seduced into buying a CMFR at retail minus 15% discount. :lol:

So in comparison, yes, these prices are a bargain for a Canadian-made, Canadian-owned, waterproof, down-filled, slim-fitting, coyote/mink fur, simple winter jackets without a gigantic logo on the arm, which I know is a huge gripe for many. The logo on the arm is a simple embroidered "crescent moon" shape as seen on my personal Gormley below. It's my primary parka, and I can't stand bombers because they aren't cut nearly long enough for any real protection in my area. Ontario is suffering from an extreme cold snap this week. I'm depending on my Gormley to get me through another one of these cold spells.

I swear some guy posted the exact same question when I posted about the sample sale.

To answer some other questions the jacket quality is equal or even slightly above the construction to the brands mentioned in this thread.

However cgfa has a slight error in his post. Moose knuckles were only rumoured to be made in Vietnam but either it was only a rumour or they moved back to Canada as all the current productions are made in Canada.

Wow stock moved fast. Before the deal posted there were 3+ of every size hovering for a log time. Right after small and medium sold out in the exclusive.

How did that Vietnam rumour even start? Because now that I check back on photos I've saved of the Moose Knuckles labels, I do see Made In Canada... :facepalm: Have I been perpetuating a lie? If so, I deeply apologize. In any case, good to hear MK is all-Canadian again. Now to lobby to get Nobis to return production to home turf. :lol:

Since we're on the subject of materials, here are CMFR's materials labels:
