The Official Barena styles and sizing thread.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Fok's note: I've moved some posts to their own thread. There seems to be a lot of interested in Barena and, inevitably, tons of "How to size?" questions.

That review is both accurate and inaccurate. Obviously, I ended up keeping the robe, and it was my best purchase of the fall by far. I wore I probably every day. No, it's not an inverallan hand knit, but it's very comfortable, and has an almost Victorian shape to it. I wore it with combat boots just the other day as outerwear over another long sweater and thought it looked really cool.

I have grown to like the materials much more, too. Rough but soft, if that makes sense, and I haven't actually seen a lot of pilling (and it has been worn a ton). Also, the wool blend will look good with some wear and tear on it, whih isna weird thing to say about wool but is also true. They dropped to 145 on yoox and I almost bought another color. Anyway, now I love mine.

How did you size it Synth, TTS or did you size up from what you normally wear in tops?

I am an XL and went TTS. It is big enought that I can wear a gym-weight sweater underneath it. A good size.

Went to Barney's today and tried on every piece of Barena they had with lapels in 48 and 50. I straddle a small/medium in most brands, and felt like Barena was TTS. The 48 stuff fit but was a little tight in the shoulders with my ams crossed, which is common for me. The sz 50 stuff fit well, but is just a touch roomy in the chest (just a touch - it fits well but looks a little more relaxed).

Barney's had a lot of the stuff on sale – prices were comparable to Yoox.

Pretty cool duffle from upcoming fall season.
