I got it from basegear.com during their black friday sale. It was about $390 - 5% paypal cashback promo.

It's their most recent revision of the Sabre, as seen here - Sabre Jacket - Revised / Men's / Arc'teryx

The old Sabre SV had a giant ARCTERYX logo on the left chest which I found distasteful. There is the bird on the left sleeve but it isn't too gaudy........hopefully. Haven't actually received it yet. If you look on eBay these go for around $350-400 every so often (there's a Tungsten colored one on sale IIRC), but I wanted a black in small so I was willing to pay for the specifications.

wrt Asos, I have to say their tees fit me very well, more flattering than a lot of tees have. I'm thin - 6'0" / 160lbs but they hug the arms and accentuate the chest area so they do not make me look like a stick. I would recommend.

On a side note, can anyone recommend a brand/place locally to buy a pair of cedar shoe trees?
what do you use to oil your boots?

You can purchase Sterling of Boston peacoats from Wright Mariner in Vancouver. Or you can order them from Armynavydeals, they currently have a 30% off coupon code (ty30) I ordered the Classic Military Style Peacoat from them, it kept me warm but I found the cut to boxy, was going to order the Navigator but I found a great deal on one from J Crew.

Do you know how much it cost at Wright Mariner? and since you have one was the fit true to size? Im a 36 suit jacket and not sure if i should get the same for the coat.

They don't ship to Canada, and you even need an American billing address, but I think if you call/email they can manually authorize a Canadian credit card.

I bought the container of Red wing boot oil that has a brush attached to the lid. I think it cost like $30 at the Kingsway store across from Metrotown. It's probably not worth it but I wanted to avoid the hassle/mess of having a separate brush. I'm not sure what type of hair is in the brush... never bothered to ask.

Shipping with FedEx/UPS/DHL =

Unless you pay the premium for the shipping fees that include brokerage, taxes, and duties, it is never worth shipping via FedEx, UPS and DHL. I always call the store whether they can ship via USPS and if so, it's hit and miss when they will charge you. If they do, $5.00 flat rate brokerage and your applicable taxes/duties. None of this $25 brokerage fee nonsense.

Fuck FedEx/UPS/DHL.
