    Did W+H stop making jeans? I haven't found any on their website or at any of their stockists.

    I actually lost a significant amount of brand respect for W+H after seeing that jacket. I don't know why; it's just one item, but still.

    It's disappointing. Their markup is ridiculous now, even sometimes not justifiable when on sale.

    It'll probably be the next Rag & Bone at this rate.

    What's up my fellow Houstonian?

    I would like to know this as well. I wish they brought back the black denim.

    Howdy!

    Somebody from another forum let me know that W+H still sells denim - it's just hidden away in the "Archives" section on their site. You have to sign up for an account and look under the F/W 2012 collection to find them. I haven't checked the black denim, but they had every size of the indigo denim in stock.

    Picked up a pair of slightly used black leather with white captoe hi-tops on ebay for $99. Couldn't pass them up. I've been meaning to try to find some of those black on black suedes from the fall, but I think they were a popular item.

    Can some W+H fans help me out. In the past I've always been Large in their shirts, but that was a few seasons ago. Are the most recent couple seasons running slimmer a al the MIJ stuff of past or a little more "true."?

    For ref, I'm 6'3"/175, so tall and lean. GVB medium works on me, but the arms are always too short. In Epaulet, I typically wear a large washed and dried hot to get a little shrinkage.

    Any input is appreciated.

    Hi guys,

    I am really tempted to grab a pair of high top white sneakers from W+H.
    Since it will be complicated and expensive for me to exchange them (I live in Paris) I am trying to get some help on sizing.

    Any of you have experience in both MMM GAT and W+H sneakers?

    I wear a 42.5 in MMM GAT (yeah I found half size in Italy).

    Thank you :)

    I got a size 42 gats that are a bit too small for me, prolly need your 42.5.

    42 in my W+H fits me perfect though. So by that measure your prolly a 42 as well.

    Does anyone have the rust wespoint chinos?

    Which color is the most accurate compared to the real thing?

    I like the color on the left (Roden Gray picture) more than the official picture from W+H website which is to flashy for me.

    Roden Gray is usually pretty spot on with their pictures as far as color goes. I haven't seen the pants, but I'm pretty sure the papaya sneakers aren't that yellow in person, and the purple oxford in archives is way darker on sites like acrimony. In any case, they both have amazing communication and will get back to you fast if you email.

    The Roden pics are more representative of the actual colour. I got my pair last week.

    Quick question that's prolly been asked before: I'm thinking of getting a pair of FW12 westpoint chinos (tan), I'm usually a size 35 in J Crew and 36 in Epaulet chinos. Should I go for 36 in Westpoint? And how do they stand up during the summer? Too thick to wear?

    Can't really help you with the sizing since I don't wear J crews. But I'm usually a 29 in most brands and same goes for W+H, so I would say they fit TTS.

    With regards to the summer, they seem to work completely fine for me, but I live in Vancouver, so it doesn't get too hot here.
