A new pleasant surprise from Abercrombie & Fitch (remember the vertical stripes, short sleeves cardies of some months ago?). I'm going to keep an eye on this beauty during the upcoming months, as the brand do a lot of webstore discounts. Anyway, I don't find the 360 price tag that far-fetched, after all it's a 100% wool coat.

Oan the face ay it that looks like a nice coat, even if it's teamed up horrendously oan thir website wi' trackie bottoms, a hoody n' baseball hat.

Wid like tae see yin in the flesh tho' tae guage the quality ay the wool, buttons, etc.

The polos were quality, I ended up buying both, the burgundy and the green, and they've stood well the machine washing. But then a coat is a different beast.

They always have two or three interesting garments in store (check out the JFK chinos, for instance), a shame how they display them (a classic coat worn with a hoodie beneath? Sacrilege!!)

Hi all, hope you all had a good summer. GS, sorry to hijack the post re the A & F coat. Just looked at their website ( and the coat is nice), I see they have both of those stripe polos in the sale. There are comments re sizing being out however. How did you find the sizing? I am a 39 inch chest and was going to go for the medium. I know you are a small face (  ;) ) but wondered how you got on? Cheers

Cheers, Mark. I reckon you're somewhat between sizes: I'm a 36" chest and I'd say the XS, which I own, may fit a 36"-37"; I guess an S would fit then a 38"-39" chest, and a M would be OK for a 40"-41".

But it all depends on how slim you like your tops, as these's is a regular, as opposed to snug, fit. I mean, I can wear a t-shirt under them without feeling restricted. I'm pretty sure you could get away with the S size, but if you prefer your tops looser, I'd go for the M. 


Hope this mess helps! Good luck with the bargain.

I'm about a 42' chest and went for the medium and it fits about right but not loose.

This Oliver Spencer polo-cardie is quite nice, even with the chest pocket, but 300+ are a bit too much:
