It's not due to pattern sizing inconsistencies or their desire to make everything the same size across the board. Jackets almost always run large, shirts hover between two sizes depending on the cuts and knits are either true to size or oversize intentionally, pants are pretty consistent with how he wants them to fit.post #2854 of 77541/14/13 at 10:39amQuote:Originally Posted by jet

Yes, of course I realize it's intentional from the designer. I just think the cuts are not always very flattering or easy to work into a wardrobe.
For instance, one cardigan I got had a 23" pit-pit, 20" shoulders but was only 25" long. The fabric was too thin in my opinion to look good oversized with the draping. The other cardigan was huge with very long body and thick fabric. It passed through at least 4 guys from here and Sufu before finally being picked up by Biggen who is 6'5 or something like that. He was the only one who could make it work due to its size. The last piece was a pair of wool trousers that looked good from the measurements but the seat was tiny.post #2855 of 77541/14/13 at 11:06ampost #2856 of 77541/14/13 at 11:26ampost #2857 of 77541/14/13 at 2:02pmpost #2858 of 77541/14/13 at 3:15pmpost #2859 of 77541/14/13 at 3:24pmpost #2860 of 77541/14/13 at 6:18pmHope you guys see there's going to be the occasional piece your body type will just not fit into. It's not fast fashion. He has a certain shape/fit in mind when he designs the piece. The pieces are also made in accord with other pieces from the collection, so I imagine some stuff gets put together to work pretty closely with others from the line—hence those fits that seem good on the lookbook model and then end up awkward in person. Again awkward for your body proportions. That said I'm an endo- ectomorph type so his fits usually pan out. Usually.post #2861 of 77541/19/13 at 10:16ampost #2862 of 77541/19/13 at 10:20ampost #2863 of 77541/19/13 at 10:23ampost #2864 of 77541/19/13 at 10:42am
