    Just got the shetland crewneck sweater in. Overall I like the quality and the interior felt lining but it is a bit thin. I decided to go with a medium and I'm not sure if I should have got a large because I feel it may be a bit too tight and after a wash too small. What do you guys think of the fit?

    Any type of denim can be washed. Generally most brands that make washed denim don't bother to use selvedge denim. I have a pair of those that I wear from time to time. Haven't noticed if they've faded more. The cut is fine and I haven't had any construction issues.

    Dior also does it.

    It's nice, helps the butt not look so saggy.

    Yeah the darting isn't quite the same as Dior's but it's functional. If you want to get your own fades you should buy the raw ones.

    I have a pair of their raw denim and I can't speak highly enough about them. I will say this though - they barely stretch and they barely fade. I have the skinny cut so they are super tight and even with them being as tight as they are (and me wearing them for almost a year), the fading is minimal at best. Still - awesome jeans and highly recommended.

    Picked up the 1 year wash in a couple sizes from yoox when they had them (if anyone is interested in a size 30 before i send them back pm me). Pretty slim in the calf (slimmer than I'm used to), but the construction and details are nice. They do the seat darting on most of their pants and I actually really like it.

    What did you buy?

    You should have created an ad before sending it back.

    large loop hoodie in xl and the tiger fleece sweats in l. didn't want to deal with the headache of not getting my money back through a fs post, so opted to just return them not knowing...live and learn, I guess.

    I'm not sure if this has already been discussed, but I was at the GAP the other day and found jackets eerily similar to the Mac coat, field parka, and military service jacket. The color schemes were even the same.

    Anyone end up getting the MA-1? Price is still a bit high even on 30% discount, but I could see myself buying at maybe 50% off...

    I thought about it but it doesn't look warm enough for Canadian winters considering the price.

    you kept more of your money returning them.

    BS prices would have been much lower.
