or this jacket?
Romantic Europe meets NYC: the ROBERT GELLER thread - Page 282
Gilt had the beige one (for fit/measurements): http://www.gilt.com/brand/robert-geller/product/171368231-robert-geller-twill-cropped-jacket
Definitely on the lighter side.
Talking with the guy @ acrimony, he told me that RG had changed all the patterning for this season. I had thought initially I would be a 50 in the zip blazer and then hate it because the sleeves would be way too long, but apparently I'm a 48 now. I had size 48 shirts from the sample sale and they were too tight in the arm. I tried some 48s this weekend at Barneys and the sleeve width were fine this time around. Maybe he did tweak his fits. Also, I think seconds runs big. I picked up the small in the hoodie. I have come to the conclusion that RG is dope as hell and everything tends to look better in person than in the pictures online.
Also, I know someone was asking about the mesh undershirt earlier and it definitely felt a lot more substantial than it looks. It was pretty heavy. Maybe not heavy heavy, but heavier than I would have thought an open weave tank top layer would be...
The material is less soft and stretchy so it behooves the material to fit slightly looser.
Have not tried on anything else from this season but this makes me very curious to try a few things on.
I definitely feel like Geller has been tweaking things over the past couple seasons to land on something a little more solid both for sizing/patterning and fit, and from a business sense.
(changing some production locations, pricing, Seconds being re-integrated, etc)
One thing that's always a little frustrating is that you rarely get a vision from an independent designer about what they're changing and why.
Not that it's necessarily any of our business but context helps!
Found another RG stockist that I never heard of...
Nice, I was asking the guy about that, but I figured a 48 would be too big on me.
