    Good summary, couldn't agree more - especially regarding the sizing. I'm usually an L and regret not sticking to it, although the profile fit means that the XL is still great. And it's one of my favourite pieces.

    WTS Anyone keen on picking up a J36-S-BICOLOR in BLACK/RAF, size L, before I send it back to the mothership? They sent me a J33-E spec with it, although I'm sure I can get the correct spec sent across if anyone wants. Will ship back on Monday. UK retail (£1,519) + fees + shipping.

    I think history has proven that they will!

    Was the L too small?

    Thanks @X.bee, you've put me at rest. I'm taking delivery tomorrow morning, so will drop a little review shortly thereafter.

    Well, if it doesn't work out, we can maybe swap

    Has anyone taken delivery of a J68-WS yet? I picked up an XL on the assumption that the sizing is similar to the J69-GT, but I'm starting to fear that I might have overshot. For comparison, I'm usually an L in Acronym, with room to spare. The J69-GT in XL is a much, much closer fit vis-a-vis the usual L, and I was hoping that the J68-WS is comparable.

    Ah, I had no idea that they used aramid in the construction. Is the actual fabric constructed using aramid, or was it just used to sew the pant together (the below copy from the site is a little ambiguous)? "The synthetic copolymer and cotton fiber blend fabric (sewn with aramid thread)" And yes, I wholeheartedly agree... that iteration of CH is incredible. The P17-CH will probably always be my favourite pant.

    Is that the melange variant? I’ve got several pieces by Yohji in aramide, and it is mind numbingly good.

    CH is ethereal. I'll sacrifice all my Stotz, all my GT, for more CH.

    I didn't expect it was that low! But then again, my P17-CH was 543€ one year earlier, so not that big of a stretch. Thanks for confirmin @Sureal.

    Interesting (and refreshing) to see that both the P25-DS and P31-DS are priced well below €1k, whereas the P10A-DS is still sitting at the price point that we've come to expect of late. Could the latter be old stock, vs. the former now produced outside of CZ? Does anyone remember the P25's original price point?

    The new hood mechanism looks great, much better than the previous iteration. I can imagine that the improvement is especially pronounced when stowed, as they got rid of that annoying black plastic cinch.
