I didn't think Raf's Adidas could get worse.

And then these happened:

Bump!

 

Does anyone know how Raf Boots (specifically the F/W '06 Accordion boots) fit?  TTS?  Size up/down?

Are Raf Simons suits still good?

 

Particularly this one

In terms of fabrics.

I have seen these in person, they're about on par with most fashion brands, such as MMM and Balenciaga. It's about a half step below SLP and a full step below Dior.

Since that particular item is deconstructed, it is not meant to have a canvassed interior, so you don't need to worry about them cutting corners there. It'll look good for about 2-3 seasons, at most. I wouldn't expect it to last 4-5 years, though, without some awkward wear and maybe a shine on the sleeves, etc.

This thread has been fairly dead, but can anybody speak to Raf shoe sizing? According to Mr Porter, these:

http://www.mrporter.com/en-be/mens/raf_simons/panelled-high-top-sneakers/453227

...fit large to size, they recommend taking the next size down. Anybody have experience and can comment?
post #517 of 539

sometimes they are wrong, you should def size down 1 whole size

Anyone know where I can still find these Raf derbys in a size 43?

Brown ones specifically?

Forward has black derbys in stock

I bought this jacket new back in '12, I think it's from the last collection that Raf did while at Jil Sander and right before moving over to Dior.

 

This piece of outerwear is my go-to, I've worn it constantly and only dry cleaned it once, it still looks almost new!  It's a very useful down vest combined with a wool sweater (back and arms).  I can wear it 3 out of 4 seasons, either as a jacket or in winter, as a layering piece under an overcoat.  If you can find one it is well worth it!

I was looking for the brown, either pebbled or glossy versions. Maybe when SS15 stuff starts rolling in there will be some available. I will go with the black at FWDFWD if I can't find either of those, so thanks for posting.

a few Raf purchases








more on the way

Is that tee quilted or embossed or is the pattern part of the weave (knit?) ? I don't remember seeing it for sale.

All three of those look good.
post #524 of 539
Neither had I. I got it in a menswear store in Amsterdam a couple of weeks ago. The pattern is quilted.

Not sure yet under what circumstances I'll actually wear it (too warm for warm weather, too cold - since short-sleeved - for cold weather) but it was half-priced. Worst case, it'll serve as souvenir of a weekend trip...

Don't know if this retailer has been listed here yet:
Storm Fashion in Denmark carry Raf.
RS x Fred Perry (not much)
adidas by RS
