If you're not 100% sure on an item, or a big dude, I can see waiting. If it's something you're going to buy sooner or later or you're a size III or even IV you should probably just do it biggrin.gif

Note: Not everything Schneider sells out at retail. Not every item works for everyone. There is of course inherent risk in trying to size something blindly.

Also curious how much things are being discounted off retail. The xx% is huge but the major pieces are probably much less than that.

Here's the thing, even if it's only 10% (20% is huge before the stuff even comes out) if you hold out then see the retail price you will be kicking yourself. Then you'll have to spend the next few months looking at it every day hoping (praying) it makes it to sale or you can find it somewhere else. To me, the presale discount is a good incentive of treating yourself and not feeling too guilty bc you're still getting a good deal.

Sorry to flood this thread with PM requests, but if someone could PM me details I'd really appreciate it too.

Or you could just e-mail Suspension Point and wait a maximum of overnight?

The two items I bought last year for preorder ended up being fantastic, fit me perfectly and were better than I expected. But they both made it to lower discounts by sale season in my size. Also, I'm pretty sure the ijevan made it to 30% discounts in most sizes on some of the sites. It's an interesting gamble.

Of course this stuff looks 10 times better in my opinion than last year's preorder and that ended up being a pretty good collection. This looks like it will rival Frozen Waves.

Jet has a good point. For me it's a no-brainer just for the peace of mind of not having to sweat it out until December. There are items I'll wait on, like the outerwear. But the knits are easily worth these prices and I'd kick myself if I missed them.

It's like the opposite of a sale, you see the prices now and they will only go up when they are released. If you see something you like you should probably cop plus 50% down isn't too bad.

Got my eye on something.

But also remember, even at retail you may be able to find some stores where you can order and get VAT deducted. Though like someone already mentioned, a lot of stores won't have size 3. Basically it's the same as any purchase. If you REALLY want it, buy it now

Gonna cop 23 for sure. Having serious thoughts about either 6 or 7, although 7 is pretty redundant with my pilot jacket..

It's scary ordering something so spendy so far in advance, what if I get super fat or my style does a complete 540?!

i pre-ordered an ijevan last year through suspension point and while it didn't work out, was to big, i didn't have much problem flipping it on b&s and platypus was also more than willing to help me get it to another user who was looking for the same size through suspension point.

all in all i don't think its a huge risk unless a mass number on this forum mess up sizing on the pre-order.

Scarf looks amazing, though the picture also makes it seem like one of those shorter, heftier knits...Might be hard to wrap it in any way

Everyone has done a pretty good job convincing me of the value of the pre-order...Will have to mull things over for a day or two

#18 is the new side-zips.

And how.

Can anyone who owns the Ijevan in a 4 or 5 provide chest and sleeve measurements? By the looks of it, the Ijevan seems to be a decent enough reference point in sizing No. 18, but I'm not sure if I'd need a 4 or 5.
post #3013 of 5579
what number are the loafers?
post #3014 of 5579
I suspect sizing down one or two sizes on that #18, just a hunch. No way I'd cop a 6 but might do a 5.
post #3015 of 5579
Really like #3, and I got a feeling very few other stores will carry it, but I think it's too "formal" for me to get much wear out of it. But that shade of green... inlove.gif

Someone convince me otherwise!
