Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Love the styling, 5 stars. Fabric is way washed down and authentic vintagey looking. It's got camo details inside the collar and cuffs - sweet.
But it's tiny. 3 stars for fit. I'm 6 feet tall and a lanky 155 lbs. Both the medium AND large were too small. Large barely fit, meaning when it was buttoned the cuffs just came to my wrist, but forget about layering underneath or lifting your arms. Just ordered the XL and we'll see how it goes. Hoping it will fit comfortably with enough room for a hoodie underneath.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I picked up the New Balance 910 Goretex runners after a couple winters of slipping around with frozen feet in my summer runners. These diesel runners fend off slush and cold great. Though the upper is still thin and not insulated, the Goretex membrane keeps sub-zero drafts and water out, and heat in. The gusseted tongue keeps your ankles from collecting snow. The outsole features a wide, stable forefoot with super knobby treads that grip the snow well. Ice, not so much.
I run NB 890s in the summer, and the 910 has a wider forefoot area and more interior volume overall. Where the 890s run small (the only shoe I've ever worn size 11) the 910s fit more true (10.5 fits best).
The 910 delivers big time for winter running. No wetness, no snow, no cold drafts, no slipping. They're very comfy and fully loaded, and it's apparent when you put them on. They're on the heavy side, but I'll save the lightweight runners for summer.

The Levi's 504s are hella burly, but comfy too. I keep finding new details about these pants that I love. There's reinforced stitching everywhere, and the back pockets are double layer material so you actually have three layers of beefy, Cordura-laced cotton material between your ass and the asphalt.
Fit is not as loose as the picture implies. They're a more-straight-than-slim fit with a full rise and true-to-size fit. I'm size 32, and these 32s fit without a belt. They're also pretty dang stretchy for such heavy material. Speaking of heavy material, they do take few wears to break in... they could practically stand up on their own at first. But in an age of flimsy fashion denim, these 504s have a timeless style that I'll be able to rock for decades.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Man I'm picky. I literally spent six weeks browsing brown flannels from DF. I ordered the Comune Arbor, the Brixton Archie and this guy, the Cheville. Matix Cheville wins! Not only is it the least expensive, it's also the most comfortable and best looking.
According to the tag, this shirt is slim - not regular fit as stated on DF. I'm 6 feet tall and slim (155 lbs) and the medium fits true. It has a trim cut around the torso, enough length for my lurpy frame, and the cuffs end right at the wrists. Though slim, it still is completely comfortable and there is plenty of room across my shoulder blades.
The material is lighterweight and super soft. Bonus, it features silky material around the cuffs, collar and shoulders.
What can I say, the Matix Cheville is the ultimate brown flannel. Champion!

Just got the Volcom Tik pants in the mail, and I'm digging em! First impressions are that the material is awesome. They look like canvas even though they're 10k waterproof. Note that the washed canvas material is designed to fade and wear in a little, for a custom look. The pictures do not do these pants justice! The fit Volcom's slim Modern Articulated fit, same as previous seasons. I'm 6 feet tall and slim, and got size large for room to move. I would have gone Medium for a true fit.

The Slab will get me through the coldest months this year. This jacket is a legit cold weather piece. Right away, you can tell that the "washed canvas" (actually regular polyester) face fabric is substantial. Be aware that the fabric is meant to wear in and get a little bit faded. When you put it on, you're met with a microfleece liner and a medium amount of insulation that heats up like a furnace.
Fit: Volcom's droptail fit is slightly less baggy than their traditional Ergo fit- but it's still pretty loose. I'm 6 feet tall and slim, and the large fits baggy but not too baggy. I could have downsized to medium for a true fit.
Features: Many pockets to store my crap. The two vertical chest zips will come in super handy. It does have Zip-Tech as well. One thing I'm bummed about is that for $280, there are no wrist gaiters. Other than that, I'm beyond hyped on this piece!
I kitted it up with Volcom's Tik pants (also available on dogfunk.com), which come in the same washed canvas material.

Element has nailed it with their pants line. The Desoto features comfy 10 inch rise, 16 inch knee, 15 inch cuff, and stretch. Boo yah. So comfy and stylie. Plus the colors are rad!! I just switch off between Camel and Surplus. Camel is actually a pretty heavy duty material, and they'll be warm for winter. True-to-size fit with a longish inseam.

Just got these in the mail and first impressions are awesome. Duck color is accurate to Dogfunk's image. The material is burly and feels tough. It will take some breaking in to soften up I think. I prefer insulated pants as I tend to run cold, and I dig the light insulation in these bibs.
For sizing, I'm 6 feet tall and super slim at 150 lbs. The medium was good in the waist but too short and gave me a wedgie, even with the suspenders fully extended. The large had the right torso length but they're very baggy in the waist and legs. Not ideal for my weird body type but I'll make do. I'd rather have em too big than too small. That's what the suspenders are for.
