I've noticed a step up in quality / accuracy in production this season too definitely, and almost everything I've bought has just been ordinary permanent collection stuff.
Next season looks very promising to me. Footwear is 100% to my tastes, and I like lots of the outerwear. I'm looking forward to trying one of these overcoats actually. At first I thought it was too much for me, but then I'm thinking with my wardrobe which is pretty plain and basic, then it could look really cool:
Denim distressing is the only complaint I have this season and the last few years. It hardly ever matches the preproduction samples anymore. The knee rips for an example look nothing like the sample versions.
Anyway I decided to keep the shirt. Sending it back to my sister in law and having her deal with the process is too much of a hassle. I think I'm a bit ok with the rips now too. The shirt will work well in warmer weather
