    Where are you getting these measurements from though?

    If you are taking it from here: "Our fit model is wearing a size 48. His measurements: height, 6'2"; waist, 31", that's his waist measurement, not the pants'.

    Did you pick these up? Let me know the waist measurement when you get them if you don't mind.

    Nevermind. I ordered the 50s in grey. I put them in my cart, then they disappeared and showed as sold out. Then they were available again. Then sold out. Then available. Managed to check out with them, so we'll see what happens.

    Has anyone handled these Jil boots before or know how these Jil boots fit? I am hoping they fit a whole size larger. ANy information on these would be appreciated, thanks.

    Jil footwear often (always?) fits at least a size large.

    How did these fit? Is the consensus on Jil footwear to size down 1?

    I've owned two pairs of jil shoes (recent seasons). I normally wear a US8 and the plane derbies in UK6 fit perfectly. I also have these beater winter boots (most likely same season as the jagged-soled derbies) in UK6.5 and they fit comfortably with thick socks.

    Received the Raf trousers from P&B today.. no dice. Not sure how their model with a 31" waist was able to wear a 48. Even with the elastic waistband tightened these are too big.

    hi,
    i wonder if any of you have and would sell either (or both) of these Raf Simons camel hats.
    They were sold by parkandbond. Last week they popped back in my wishlist as available, but I ended up not buying because shipping to Europe was unreasonably high, $53 + $22 for customs tax. Gilt customer service said it was their standard rate and could not adjust. Thanks.

    My Jill Sander Chelsea boots came in the mail today from Yoox. Sadly, they are a touch too big for me. If anyone is interested, I can let them go for what I got them for which is only $265. Otherwise, I'm sending them back to Yoox. They are the ones pictured here:

    The leather on these is really nice, and quality and construction is top notch. EU 41 but would work best for a sz 9.5-10 US IMO. Outsole measures 12 inches.

    I know Aloharag has gotten some footwear, not on website yet.


    Just re-read this oki-ni feature story about visit to raf ss12 showroom, definitely old but I think it still worth posting .. (I LOVE showroom photos)


    Another blog post about visit to raf ss12 showroom.
