Eh, their shoes are nice, and they have a good resale value. nod[1].gif

I have a folder where I've stored some old Margiela artisanal creations I want to play with via thrift store finds.  I have a feeling it's pretty tough to get the sharp tailoring these brands have with mixed materials like that.

Not possible, afaik. They'd either want to shorten the sleeves from the shoulders or recut the area around the zippers to re-position them while shortening from the cuff. Both ways are a lot of work.

The fallacy in your argument is that you believe there is a difference.
