    ...so as a size 56+, I'm pretty much fucked. Good to know. Will re-orient. And cry at the loss of such beautiful fabrics and cuts in my wardrobe.

    No... Harnden makes size XXL and some designs fit quite large... say a size XXL long mac probably would fit up to a size 58 comfortably. Most pants fit quite large.

    Can pretty much concur, 189 cm and usually 48/50.

    In harnden world L for breadmaker, blazers and knits, XL for shirts as my torso is so long. Overcoats are huge so I have a long mac in M

    x-post from recent purchases.

    Jodhpur-y ones in a light cotton boil - whatever that is. @nicelynice pretty sure these were the base for the cut of those IS jeans you were eyeing up.

    Looks interesting, but really small production and most everything is sold out. From the two sites I was able to read that that the designer graduated from a fashion institute, he works by hand on all of the garments, and the fabrics used are original for the brand.

    I met the dude at one of his exhibitions a year or two ago! Really nice, down-to-earth guy. He studied fashion in college and went to work in a factory, so he has great technical skills. Everything is made by hand by himself using fabrics from mills around the country. He also casts the buttons himself. So happy he got picked up by some stores.

    Some of the stuff is just a tad too "quaint" for me, but the long-shirts in particular are very nice. That Atelier coat looks great, may have to go pick it up

    Thanks, @Abraxis that gives me hope. Any idea which stockist(s) might carry such Brobdingnagian sizes?

    Eastern Market in Melbourne often gets larger sizes in and they had some older XXL blazers around for a few years but I think they've gone now. Worth a try though.

    Thanks @oulipien

    Indeed all sample pieces worn and presented in the photo shoot are available at upwards of 50% off.

    Onwards to new projects and collaborations!
