    Thanks for pointing that out - does look like the main difference is vertical vs. horizontal.





    For those who're interested, found these pages on JIL in an old copy of Contemporary Fashion .... I still need to scan raf redux at some point!

    Thanks for this. It was interesting to read! Been dying to read a book/biography on Jil and Raf lately. Anything out there except for Redux?

    Although I like Jil Sander's design, I'm so glad Raf Simons took over the creative director helm. To me, It's better than she was still designing the brand.

    Price is good. Gilt retail price is much lower.

    i also bought the black raf derbies in size 41. 42's were a bit too big for me (i've been realizing im a true 41 not 42). if someone wants a pair of 42s for cheap lemme know!

    they are superb.

    imo, the quality is very slightly below john lobb and much much better than lanvin derbies that i've tried.

    i remember moo saying that raf derbies were comparable to edward greens or something like that.

    really? :wow: Much surprised. Do you know who makes them?

    I think Lanvin sneakers quality is decent, on par with YSL but much better than MMM GAT. This made me want to avoid all MMM shoes.
    The GAT looks same quality like nikes.
