I like them, but mostly because of the jeans!
You're a perfect SLP "small" since you're 135 lbs. As long as your shoulders aren't super wide, you don't need to go to medium, which would be real billowy. I'm assuming you're fairly skinny.
Kimmo -- looks great! Perfect fit and you're so right about understated but luxe.
Browns in the UK and Saks in the States. Dior is trying to be more like Hermes so fewer bigger stores are carrying. Mostly boutiques.

I have a Dior one from a few seasons ago that was cut so perfectly slim and now they've expanded the cut to go with...
Love that Paul Pierce quip on the Nets and the state of incoming NBA players. Yes, he sounds old, but that doesn't mean he's not telling the Truth.
