Foursquare jackets

Hey guys looking at getting the Foursquare Manfredi or Arroyo jacket. Am going to buy it online as no stores here stock it that I can find.

I am wondering what size fit these are, I currently have a small Ride jacket and it's just a bit too small. Wondering if I should get a medium?

They fit large.

I'm about 6'2 190ish, and I have a Large and it fits well.
I'm not a big fan of the "cool" 2-sizes-2-big look, but it's definitely not tight either.

Cheers, dude. Hopfully that small is what I'm after then.

Does anyone know what kind of taxes/charges I will be incurring to have it sent to Vancouver ordering from the-house?
They already charge a massive $30 for shipping this one item. If they lowered the cost of shipping it wouldn't matter but anything on top of it makes getting this jacket not worth the low prices really.

I just received my jacket that I bought from the US. The guy listed the price as $150 (was a little more), never got charged any duty/customs or anything. It was shipped via USPS though, don't think actual shops will do that. Check out ebay if you haven't already.

Did you buy that from an online store though? sounds like you bought it off someone personally, in which case they probably marked it as a gift.

I've read USPS is worse an fedex when dealing with shipping from online stores with regards to brokerage fees and what not.

I bought it off ebay. It wasn't listed as a gift either, I guess I just got lucky or something. They did however roll the jacket up into a small tube, wasn't very big. Shipping that way only cost them $12 too, though I got charged more.

I have ordered off House before, but I had it delivered to a friend that was visiting family in the US. She brought it back with her free of charge. You could try something like that if you know anyone there. Have them ship it, and ask them to send it as a gift. Could even try asking some reputable people on this site, send them like $15+shipping for their troubles. That's something I considered before too.
