Bump!

Does anyone know how Raf Boots (specifically the F/W '06 Accordion boots) fit? TTS? Size up/down?

Are Raf Simons suits still good?

Particularly this one
http://www.mrporter.com/mens/raf_simons/slim-fit-deconstructed-wool-blazer/453211

In terms of fabrics.

I have seen these in person, they're about on par with most fashion brands, such as MMM and Balenciaga. It's about a half step below SLP and a full step below Dior.

Since that particular item is deconstructed, it is not meant to have a canvassed interior, so you don't need to worry about them cutting corners there. It'll look good for about 2-3 seasons, at most. I wouldn't expect it to last 4-5 years, though, without some awkward wear and maybe a shine on the sleeves, etc.

I bought this jacket new back in '12, I think it's from the last collection that Raf did while at Jil Sander and right before moving over to Dior.

This piece of outerwear is my go-to, I've worn it constantly and only dry cleaned it once, it still looks almost new! It's a very useful down vest combined with a wool sweater (back and arms). I can wear it 3 out of 4 seasons, either as a jacket or in winter, as a layering piece under an overcoat. If you can find one it is well worth it!

I was looking for the brown, either pebbled or glossy versions. Maybe when SS15 stuff starts rolling in there will be some available. I will go with the black at FWDFWD if I can't find either of those, so thanks for posting.

Is that tee quilted or embossed or is the pattern part of the weave (knit?) ? I don't remember seeing it for sale.

All three of those look good.

Neither had I. I got it in a menswear store in Amsterdam a couple of weeks ago. The pattern is quilted.

Not sure yet under what circumstances I'll actually wear it (too warm for warm weather, too cold - since short-sleeved - for cold weather) but it was half-priced. Worst case, it'll serve as souvenir of a weekend trip...
