i've been looking for a pea coat that I like for a while, and luckily I came across dogfunk's sale. I got this jacket in red heather in a medium. I'm 6' tall and weight 150lbs with a 38" chest, the medium is a good length and the shoulders fit right. I'm built more like a swimmer, so as usual the "box" cut most jackets come in from the factory don't look quite right, so i'm going to have this tailored to fit. The sleeve length is just a bit long, so I will probably have to get that altered too. The "red heather" is a really awesome color, it's more of a burgundy than a red, but the dogfunk pictures are probably the closest i've seen on the net. The jacket is pretty heavy/thick, and looks like it would fair well in most east coast winters, being in Cali I hope we get a cold winter this year so I can actually use this thing. The only thing I can complain about, is the fact that when I read about "I Spiewak & Sons", I thought I was buying/supporting an American made product with an amazing legacy. When I looked on the tag of the jacket though, it says it's made in China ;/
Can't hate on them too much as the construction of the jacket looks pretty thorough, but still I wish with their history they would have kept production state side.
5 stars for a quality product
-1 star for not keeping jobs state side
I'm 6' 150lbs, so tall and slim describes me to the "T". This shirt in Medium fits perfect! So perfect that I bought the blue and red. It has a nice light/soft cotton, longer than most slim fit mediums (thumbs up) and to top it off it says it's made in the good old USA!
Thanks for bringing jobs back home Analog, you earn an extra star for that
do you guys carry these in the "Asian fit"?
the eS Eli Flannel is dope shirt.
I fit right in with all the cholo's at Homeboy Industries today.
It's a mid-weight cotton flannel, so it's not super thick, but also not too thin.
The sizing is pretty true as well, I'm 6ft 155lbs and the Large fit perfectly.
If your looking for a shirt that'll work on ANY of our SoCal sunny day's, the Eli won't let you down.
I had got the Cartels last year in a Large, and rode them for a season before finding out my boots were too big and had to switch to a medium. Dogfunk took care of it no questions asked! super stoked, love the bindings, they ride super comfy, good flex, love the skybacks. I haven't had the issue maybe but once about having to put the skyback down when getting on lifts (no problems in Mammoth). Definitely recommend them to anyone ready to step it up.
but it sure ain't hard when your rockin the Sweet Paulie's! Got these to go with my suit slacks and fedora. The shoe is super comfy and i've gotten a bunch of compliments since wearing them. They run pretty true to size (I wear 11 1/2's in DC's... 10's in the reef fit perfect).
I ended up renting a pair of these from WaveRave in Mammoth, when my hommies bindings didn't work out. Comfy biding!!! The skyback really makes your heal-side turns a piece of cake! I love the toe-cap feature too, at first I wasn't too sure about it, but after riding them I'm convinced it's the way to go. I picked up the moss/fade to go with my green/kaki jacket and pants. WOO! yeah for Cartels!!!
I bought the 06' Models from another site in summer of 07'. Rode them the first time this year and had a few issues.
First the BOA system (cool not having to lace up) didn't stay tight. I had heard this before I purchased them, but was told that DC remedied the issue the second time around (which I thought was the 06' model). I called DC who took 2 days to get back to me, and by that time I already called BOA who sent me two new lace sizes. I have yet to ride them again with the new laces, but hopefully this fixed the issue.
Second the liners AREN'T removable, which sucks if your feet sweat (and they will if your human!). This makes it super hard to dry out the liners, and then it gets all gross an stuff inside if you don't put them in the sun or on a boot drier.
The third issue I had (which you might not have) was that my lead (left) foot had a lot of pressure/rubbing on the bone just below the ankle. I have how ever broke this ankle twice and it never healed right, so this probably isn't their fault.
Otherwise these boots are nice and light, reasonably comfortable and if you can get the BOA system to work right their pretty sweet.
Next boots for me are gonna be Northwave's
