    Asking on behalf of a technophobe friend:

    Any recommendations for a Fall/Winter/Spring-weight basic vneck sweater for $100 or less (preferably with a reasonable hand-feel and won't lose its shape)?

    can anyone comment on Lanvin sneaker sizing? the best i've found with a search is an FS post saying size 8 = size 9.5 US.

    i'm a size 42.5 in Dior (which IIRC is 9.5 US). should i order a size 8 Lanvin?

    Stupidly posted this first in the other formal menswear forum. Hoping u guys can help me out:

    I found these boots I really dig on a sale on Gilt.. only problem is they're just a prop (not for sale) and I can't get any info on the designer, model, etc.. I posted the same post on sufu, but figured you all are just as well-versed on this stuff so I'd give it up for you to try to take a stab.. any one have any idea what these could be.. or, alternatively, the closest thing that's on the market today?

    Please any insights would be much appreciated! Fingers crossed..

    Monkey-toe boots are fucking atrocious, and tucking into them just makes it all the worse

    How can you tell what kind of leather a jacket is? I got one from airportlobby some time ago and he didn't specify what it was, I do have a suspicion that it's lambskin though because it's very soft (as in, fold it up and stash it in a drawer soft) and shows imperfections easily.

    your best bet would be to email the people from gilt and ask what boots those are

    Yep, my thinking exactly. I emailed and called them, but they made the excuse that since it's merely a prop item, they have no access to the information. I work for a major public fashion retailer, however, and know that they can get this info pretty damn easily. I figured posting here and sufu would be my second best bet in terms of access to lot of people with relevant knowledge. Any designers that make boots similar to those? I found Varvatos is the closest..

    How do you size washed Dior Homme jeans vs. raw? Looking at a dark washed pair but not quite sure whether to size differently than I'd size the raws.
