    Thanks for the response, it certainly is a challenge to find any outwear that is actually slim on my frame. Is it something worth trying to get taken in a bit or is that a big hassle on a coat like this?

    Thanks

    Anyone have any experience with the UK-based label TOAST? They make some good looking tweed jackets, but I have no idea what the quality/fit is like. Any recommendations/warnings?

    Close, maybe no cigar, but:

    http://www.oipolloi.com/Store/OiPolloi-DII-4097-196-norse+projects+.html

    Also comes in Navy and Olive Green versions. Warning - in case it's not your thing - has a label.

    Cheers,

    No experience with the clothes, but didn't have any problems re a few deliveries of household goods - time and packing. If you can, wait for the sales, the full prices are a bit over and a healthy discount is given. Think the men's clothing is new, a web search re the women's may throw up some comments on how fixed/variable quality and fit are.

    Cheers,

    It looks a little blousy in the midsection, but it's a damn fine coat. Like someone else said, you're going to have a really hard to finding a perfect-fit coat at 130.

    ...You could always sell the 3-sixteen to me...:embar:

    Nicely done, about $100 dollars more than the original though. Damn. Anyone know where I could find this? [​IMG] Heritage Research from Fall 2010

    so, im kind of angry. i just bought my first pair of chinos (epaulet) and good button-up (gitman), and my mom took them to wash, but she put them in the dryer as well even though i told her not to. she forgot. now theyre both tighter, and im kind of angry. how do i bring them back to their original sizes? fucking hell.

    With a shirt it worked for me to completely soak it in cold water then to stretch all the fabric out and air dry.

    i mightve been just overreacting. maybe it was my mind playing a trick on me :s...
    "You can buy these true to size. Shrinkage or exceptional stretching is not a concern for the waist and top block. You can expect the inseam to shrink approximately a half inch after washing, so please wash them before you get them hemmed to ensure the correct length. "
    so anyways, one machine dry isnt BAD, is it? just to get rid of shrinkage i guess and from now on hang dry?

    Could someone help identify these shoes for me? Sorry for the quality, zoomed in on an already bad cellphone picture.
