NMWA has a short sleeve sweater that I always thought could be pretty awesome.

They sold out of the colour I wanted in my size a long time ago, but for the price I might pick this up.
Has anybody here picked anything up from them? Or maybe the NMWA dudes could speak on it?

Niche is great. I own that short sleeve sweater you posted. Check in the No Man Walks Alone and WAYWT threads for for pics I posted. Niche is Japanese sized so size up one from usual. I am a size small in just about all brands but take a medium in Niche tops including the short sleeved pocket sweater.

Thanks guys! And yeah I was wondering about sizing. I'm generally XL, occasionally L, measurements looks good in an XL on NMWA.
Cheers

well turns out barena is rather tts, but this one is made out of linen-cotton canvas fabric and it doesn't stretch at all.
so it's very tight across the back in size 52 for my frame. a few days ago I came across another barena jacket in ragtag osaka, this one made from the soft cotton material that felt like knit, but not thick ass sweater knit, and it fits really comfy in size 50... damn! it is white in colour so i decided against purchasing.

now my question is how to be certain of the materials if it is an online purchase? does the different names correspond to strictly different categories, like boglioli with the k jacket and dover? the soft one had "toppa folpa" written inside the tag, i dunno why it has two names lol. while the canvas one, i dont even know the name, it was through yoox and there is no tag.

any info would be great!

I dont know about the full Barena lineup, but I know that the Toppa jacket and the Torceo jacket are two different models. The Toppa is generally a little longer in the body and maybe a little more conservative (if you can say that about Barena). The Folpa is the material, a jersey fabric in this case. I pretty much always have to seize up at least one if not two sizes on their non-jersey jackets. Jersey and knit fabrics are more forgiving.

Has anyone ever received the wrong items from Barneys Warehouse?

 

I ordered two pairs of pants and got one of the pants and a pair of shorts.

 

According to the product names in the package contents I was supposed to get two pants but the numbers on the tag for the shorts matches the product ID for the pants I didn't get. I'm guessing the mistake is a result of the tags being on the wrong product. Is this going to be a huge mess to prove that I really did receive the wrong item?

Yeah I once ordered a Tim Coppens button up shirt and got a Tim Coppens wrist wrap thing. Call them and they'll set you straight. My shirt was out of stock so they just refunded me after I shipped the thing back.

Speaking of which, I saw an amazing Tim Coppens jacket the other day, did a Google Images search to see if there was some place I could buy it, and just saw a bunch of pics of @conceptual 4est's face.

i'll bite. hard to tell from the photo, but they're either chukkas or plain toe derbies in brown leather with an elongated vamp and burnishing at the toe. lots of companies make them, but considering that dude has to be a regular at MFA or Lookbook, his pair is probably from a rock-bottom cheapie place like aldo or something

Yes, I have one of two, with Mr. Coppens having the other :slayer:

 

gtran I might be willing to sell it sometime in the future, if the price is right of course (at risk of sounding like a jerk).  Otherwise I can't see a reason to ever let it go, and TC seems to be gaining a lot of momentum lately so that's cool as it's the flagship piece from his first collection.

@Cacatfish alright that explains the folpa part, thanks! really felt great to wear, I'll be looking for some folpa summer pieces next sale.

Sounds like NMWA needs to get in there and organize a re-release. devil.gif

What do you guys do when you get a piece from B&S that isn't as described? Picked up an SNS Ion, and it's an inch bigger everywhere than it was measured. It doesn't fit me (guess what? a size too big). It's a beautiful sweater, but I can't wear it. I'm trying to figure out whether to sell (but this is an irritating solution- I'm likely to lose money after getting something that wasn't as described, by a significant amount) or generally what to do. Advice/ thoughts?
