    I'm about to order the v neck and crew neck in blue marl.

    I'll post up pics when they arrive.

    ^ really? That's a shocker, most of their buttons are thick. I own like 5 shirts and never have a problem with their buttons falling off.

    This is a problem with all non-lockstitched buttons. It's pretty much luck.

    I got the oatmeal colour from Ryon. I didn't feel like waiting for the stock to arrive in the Sydney stores. It seems a bit softer than last year's knits, and is just as nicely constructed. Very happy with it.

    Sydney stores: both Incu stores (one in the CBD, and the other in Paddington) and Our Spot, and possibly others.

    the markup is rediciulous...

    our spot when it used to be open sold a shirt for $400AU.

    it retailed for 135 pounds.

    i bought it on sale for 67 pounds - $140AUD

    has anyone purchased anything from F/W 2009 yet?

    i like the khaki jacket. this:
    [​IMG]

    i do notice the fur is polyester (fake). my guess is that fake fur is stronger and will last longer than real fur. how will this piece dry clean? i dont want to buy a one time wear dud that cant be dry cleaned.

    someone from an earlier post mentioned that ndg quality is not all it's sound to be. after 3 seasons of experience...i think it's SO-SO!

    lastly, this season's inspiration feels like WWII eastern front, the russian side.

    I have the marled blue / grey crewneck and the v neck coming.

    Those two were my must buys, I have some other things that aren't a must that if turn up on sale I will get.

    Razele: Did you size up? I aim to get the shawl collared cardigan in the next week or so. I cannot decide which color I want tan or charcoal grey.

    where did u buy from razele?

    i dont wear sweaters, but ur picks look nice...

    i want the khaki parka and woolen blazer. i think the great coat is awesome, but i live in LA. the weather never gets cold enough for me to wear it, so if i do buy the purchase would be a waste of moola.

    I sized up on the blue marl sweater I ordered and it fit perfectly. I'm usually a L in most everything and went with an XL.

    Def size up I think. The woolen blazer and the shawl collar cardigan are pretty amazing.

    I think the tan crewneck might need to get purchased for myself.
