I've never owned a single Dior Homme piece and want to purchase my first one. The only thing that scares me is sizing. The sweater I want to being sold in XS only and Im afraid it might be too small for me. Any ideas where I could get some measurements? Seller (yoox) wouldnt provide them.
All of my suit jackets are 36... I have couple of JCrew blazers in 36/s. Wear Fred Perry in 36 or XS. I wonder if these sizes even compare? Should I even bother?

It'll be too small. You'll need a small. 36US = EU S.

I agree w/ nahneun. I am a 38 or a slim 40 and I wear a 50 (US 40) in DH outerwear and an L in knits and they are pretty fitted. You can always shrink a sweater a little bit so its better to by tts or a little big.

You need a medium or EU 48.

I usually wear size small/36 in most brands, and I have two DH sweaters in medium, which still fit me pretty slim.

DH is skinny euro, like KVA and McQueen to name a few... I'm a US small in 90% of everything (including american apparel) and take an M in dior. XS would be too small for you I'd think.

I am between a 48-50 in most European brands, am a smaller medium in most US brands, and go with a 50Eu in Dior outerwear and pants, and 50 or 52 in knits and shirts. Shit can be constricting tight. Interestingly, the jeans sizing is somewhat inconsistent with the rest of the stuff.

Dior is way smaller than normal brands. Size up one at least.

My Dior Homme suits and jackets are size 46 Euro (36 US). My DH knits are size Small and they fit well...fitted but not uncomfortable.

I tried on a DH XS knit at the store before and it was the first time in my life that I felt like a fat, puffy bastard. I strongly advise against you buying DH in XS (44 Euro).

I wear DH 44. If you can wear anything from J Crew or Fred Perry, do not purchase... you will ACTUALLY not be able to wear it.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
