    You guys talking about the Richard cardigan? Ssense has one on sale in a 50, which could work if it fits over-sized.

    I actually really like this cardi but wouldn't pay that much for it. Barneys has a 46 marked down to $179, would be all over it if it was my size.

    Reborn Montreal has the double breasted version in a 46 on sale. Gravity Pope has a 48 left in the two button as well on sale.

    It's a sick piece, I've been wearing mine a lot.

    Fall 2011 wasn't my favorite either. Some of the pieces I liked best from the show didn't get produced, and the stuff that was made was all really safe, in my opinion. I'm on board with that cardigan blazer though. I like the double-breasted version. The Corner has a few sizes, 48 to 52, I believe, if anyone is looking. I'm pretty excited to see spring 2012 stock. I wasn't sure what to make of the show at first, but the more I look at it the more I like it. I'm curious to see how the oversized stuff actually fits.

    Honestly I didn't like the cardigan blazer. Fall2011 was pretty good once I got the chance to see it in person. The two-tone blazer blackbird stocked was very nice and the nubuck jacket at Barneys/ssense was dreamy. Really like the reverse sweatshirts and the bomber at Aloha Rag.

    I thought the reverse sweatshirts were just ok. To be fair, I'm never really that interested in sweatshirts generally. By two-tone blazer, do you mean the ones where the sleeves differ from the body? I didn't see any of them in person, but I didn't really like them in the product shots. The blazer looked to me like it was really a vest made of a blazer's body with sleeves from a separate shirt sticking out. But judging a piece of 3D clothing based on a little 2D image is always an exercise in futility (and yet I still try to shop online). I did like the wool dinner jacket a lot though, and the Manfred sweater, which looked super-luxe, if a little conservative for Geller.

    Just wondering, what are the opinions Geller's jeans? Those seem to sell pretty well, but I actually don't like them. The cut is generally way too skinny for me. I look like I'm vacuum-packed in them. I looked at the 2-year fades in Assembly NY, and the color looked so good, but I could tell just looking at them that they would not look good on anyone who wasn't built like a rail.

    The two-tone blazer was at Aloha Rag and fucking killed, it was so good. As for the jeans, I really liked mine until I washed them and now they are basically un-wearable. Which is a real bummer.

    But I really want a waistcoat now, even though I dunno how it will look on me.

    the jeans are roomy at the waist/ thigh and very tapered at the knee. I like my jeans that way. I also like the cotton/polyurethane blend.

    I liked how the turtleneck sweater looked on the runway but the blackbird shots are very anti-fit bullshit.

    The wash on his jeans are great. The fall/winter pair I tried on at assembly fit mad low on the waist as can be seen in several runway shots. I own a pair from an earlier spring/summer that fit similar but since they are lighter don't pull as much.

    Bows: no lie, I really like the vest,turtleneck, scarf fit from the F/W11 collection. They way those vest curve keep make them look like so good when compared to suit vests.

    His jeans fit me perfect and I am not a rail at all, but there is now way I could fit into those 2-year fades. All the jeans I own have polyurethane in them which allows them to stretch.

    Post the pic!

    I was thinking about a waistcoat, because I feel like my plum, tie bar button up would look sick with a nice waistcoat. Its a bit formal to wear casually, but with a waistcoat I think it would be great.

    Bows, you should go for it. First, the plum tie bar shirt is sick. :slayer: Waistcoats are actually easy to wear. (I'm wearing one today. :hide:) As long as you don't style yourself like a J.Crew employee (you know what I mean) I think they look good and they're an easy way to add a layer/texture. For anyone interested, defpoetry has a Geller sample with a deep scoop up in B&S in size 48. I think he's asking $200.

    Edit: I realized just after typing this that my waistcoat is from J.Crew. Haha. It's very un-J.Crew-like though. It's a blend of wool, linen, and metallic thread.

    The jeans have different fits so it's important to be clear on which one you're talking about. I really like the 'slim' jeans fit. I'm referring to the one with polyurethane but not the super skin tight one. It's got a taper and is tight in the thigh but isn't his skinniest cut (7" hem). I'm quite skinny though so for bigger people it might not be the best choice. The really skinny cut just seems way too tight to me and not flattering on anyone.

    Interesting comments - unfortunately I didn't get to see much of the collection in person this year, as Nomad didn't get in anything for Fall.

    Reverse sweatshirts were cool, agreed. Though not something I'd cop as I've already got 4 Geller sweatshirts.

    What's the roomiest fit? A 7" hem tends to still be a bit too tight for me, and that's the least-skinny fit I've actually tried. At Assembly NY I did see a pair of five-pocket pants with a slightly wider leg opening (probably 7.5" or so) that still had a slim fit, but I don't think they were actually denim. Also, this is just a pet peeve of mine, but I hate when expensive jeans have exposed rivets on the back pockets. (Like these: http://www.barneys.com/Skinny-Jean/501444674,default,pd.html?cgid=MENS05#). Cover that shit up.

    You mean like these? http://blackbirdballard.com/Robert_Geller_5_Pocket_Skinny_Jean_Olive_21110.html

    I have a pair and find them to not be that slim. They actually have less of a taper than I was hoping for. More of a straight leg.
