    Wait just about every boutique offers water/champagne/whatever. Am I missing something?

    Thanks.

    That is very nice. I am not sure it's what I am looking for ATM and I was trying to keep price low but I'll book mark that just in case, size 3 should fit a 48/50?

    ^ size 1 fits like a 44/46 so the size 3 should work for you.

    Anyone know much about this or have one of them? Thinking about picking it up as I need a bomber. Seen a couple for sale before but wondering if anyone has first hand experience...

    think this is the same, if not very similar to the one i have but in a different fabric. if this is indeed the case, because of the construction, that's going to fit closer to a 46 than a 48.

    they are on e of the absolute best clothing stores from a standpoint of customer service and making an in store customer feels comfortable and appreciated.
    it isn't that other stores don't serve wine/ water of whatever. it is that being in the store you do not feel intimidated or pressured.
    the staff is very friendly, engaging with enough distance so that you do not feel like you are being watched/ followed or whatever.

    Two years ago they had a CCP Exhibit, we went after closing and they were nice enough to accommodate three of us to see it.

    I dunno I would try on in person... honestly have found VA in pants and tops to be extremely slim. Slimmer than attachment/jun hashimoto/devoa and incarnation, maybe Julius/wjk slim. To the point where I couldn't get size 4/5 VA on (pants/tops/outerwear). I have 1 VA overcoat that does fit though, size 4.

    You are definitely slimmer than me sinnedk, but would probably not buy online without return options (or very careful sizing/measurement questioning) until one has had some experience first hand with sizing.

    If you're a size 48/50 I'd suggest going for a size 4 (maybe 3) in TVA. I'm a size 48/50 and own several TVA pieces all in the ranges of sizes 3-5 with mainly size 4s.

    I also own that heavy jersey WJK hoodie (MA+ aviator substitute) in a size L that @nicelynice quoted a few pages back and it's very substantial, might even be closer to a parka. My only complaint about the WJK hoodie is that it can be very stiff especially the sleeves until it's worn in and it's very slim.
