I was actually considering getting this same pair a few months back.

also, this is a funny example of "can't take everyone's advice." i post in rft and 3 people say "your face is round, get square glasses." post in rp and people say "should have gotten round." appreciate the advice, it's just a good example of the fact that you need to take all the advice you get on here and choose which you follow. in this instance, the round frames looked terrible on me.

you should do a warby parker free try on with these frames (in whatever color you like!):

huge for someone who's 5'2" or huge in general? because my face looks like it's bigger than yours and even i don't wear past a 52.

Current season? Do they still have the suicide rise and weirdly large thigh:hem ratio?

Not incidentally, it was your OL constellation blazer that lead me to this tweed jacket. laugh.gif

FWIW, I tried on the constellation blazer in a 48 (roughly TTS), and I'm pretty sure it was the correct size since the shoulders were dead-on. I didn't have any problem getting my arms through the armholes, although I admittedly have kinda twiggy arms. I ended up returning it even though I thought it was a cool piece because it fit like shit on me; massive gapping at the neck and somehow at the chest, but it still managed to pull a tiny bit at the chest before going all boxy-looking at the waist.

The whole thing makes me wary of OL suiting, which sucks because I really like the look of their midnight sheep jacket or whatever it's called, the flecked one from this F/W. confused.gif

Front Rise - 9.25"
Back Rise - 13.5"
Thigh - 11"
Hem - 6.5"

No idea what season, I'd guess current though. Cut is Detroit and color is pearl.

I've often thought the same thing myself. The resemblance is vague, but to American eyes it's definitely there. I'll go even further and say that many of the designs from European sneaker brands fall into the bowling shoe camp-- e.g. Ecco, Camper, etc. By contrast most American sneakers are unapologetically sporty. Somehow in the European quest to make more "sophisticated" sneakers by removing the overt sportiness, the bowling shoe has a tendency to appear.

The safer route is to design sneakers which are more minimalist, like what Common Projects has done.

Glasses are too personal to solicit anyone's opinion other than your own. Mine are blue Pradas; they sound terrible, and I myself would caution against getting them if someone had asked me. But they work on my pale skin, and are more versatile than brown. Buy what you like and not what teh internetz think is cool this week.

I have a pair of Detroits from a couple seasons ago and while I've never bothered to measure them, your thigh vs. hem measurement look about right. The taper from the thigh to bottom hem is so excessive that I cannot wear them. They are made for someone muscular who wants the semblance of skinny jeans. If you're actually skinny, I would avoid them.

Also, quality is not very good. I've worn mine only a couple times and there's already stitching that's pulling apart on the seams.

I like how they fit, but that last part has me worried now. Luckily I haven't taken any tags off yet.
