Yes, everyone should post comprehensive sizing info like Mr. Porter, Ssense and Oki-Ni do.

Re: CPs.  There really isn't a great alternative, although this year, I've fallen in love with Lanvin sneakers as well.  The wider last looks better with some jeans/pants.

 

My biggest issue with ssense is the models.  They are all 6'3", yet they always seems to wear size smalls.  Always freaks me out about how the piece will fit me at 5'8".  

 

Bout to check out THECORNER, wish me luck.

General impressions I guess. This is good to know. There's always a few pieces floating around various stores, but I'm never sure if they're any good. Durability is a bit of a concern though when considering outerwear type items.

The quality and durability are generally fine.  I just like my stuff to be fighting rugged, like early Engineered Garments and SNS Herning.  Put it this way, my Aero leather is pretty close to 5 lbs, and the lightest leather jacket that I own is probably my calf Margiela 5-zip.  For real durabililty, you go to brands like Barbour, Aero, Woolrich, etc...  However, as fashion outerwear goes. it's probably above average.

 

I have a thing for reconstructed garments, militaria, and UK casuals, so I am naturally predispositioned to Raeburn's stuff.  The pieces are cool and and of themselves, and they can be worn in different ways.  So... I'm a fan.

I don't think anything for the rest of the season can top that. A lot of places sold out of those at $1500.
