Yeah @Mojo1990, I don't like the giant pockets of the ZC coat or its conical shape. The Casey is a little better but if it were me I'd probably grow wary of the shiny velvet and not find it practical enough.

My LUC coat, I'd have to agree, is nicer than both of those. It's pretty luxurious fabric and unique but not outlandish (with the way the fabric was constructed with "slashes" in the back). Hmu if you want to talk about it. Happy to work something out.

As for Harnden, I've had good luck with Persuade in Bilbao, Spain. IF Soho in NYC has a good selection but they are pretty overpriced compared to the EU sellers. Nic at Eth0s is a dream to work with. I've purchased a few GBS pieces through him and I'm happy with everything I own. Cheers.

actually that IA coat isn't especially exciting either. But in terms of Ziggy Chen , check out Gullam 13 s website , they seem to have better ZC coats in terms of fabric, visual interest, etc

Check out Individual Sentiments too, they have an excellent AW16 collection... Cruvoir have some of their coats.

I know that you are right, but this is one of the reasons that I'll not open an office in the EU, and will always base operations in the US, and with stipulation that US laws apply to all of our transactions.  I think that there needs to be a balance in laws, and for me, the EU laws have become much too strict to allow a business to operate in a reasonable fashion.  

 

Basically, all legal obligations aside, I find it unethical to impose your financial burdens on someone else.  If you had a health emergency, lost employment, etc... I can see why you'd need to make a tough choice between two bad decisions (neither being ideal) but having another child does not fall under that shield, imo.  It's not an unforeseable event, and therefore, not something that cannot be planned for.

Yes indeed, I've been eyeing the IS coat at Cruvoir for a while. They had a beautiful SS17 coat for preorders, and also a Viridi Anne Coat

This is the same as mine except for the color (mine is black). Only almost three times the price.

Finally got around to getting these IS jeans from AW15 sorted out. Had to trim 4" off to bring them down to 34" inseam. They're still a bit wide at the hem from what I'm used to. But with the right boots I think they work.

ATG, from the measurements the rise was very low, what are your thoughts?
post #1947 of 2149
9.5" works for me. My pants never sit where they are supposed to so low is always better than high.

Most traditional trousers have a rise of around 11.5 to 12 inches. I've purchased many lemaire Wool pants that have a rise of 12.5 inches

i don't really wear "traditional" trouser unless i wear a suit.
