    ^Done, 44s are 31.5, 45s are 32.25, either something is fucked or the 10s and 11s are the same length. I measured 2 pairs.

    The hell happened to this thread? Anyways, wore my Lanvins today, wasn't going to post pics but was trying out my new S95 and it took some decent pics.

    Shit, pics were much sharper before I uploaded it to imgur, looks bad on tinypic too. [​IMG] Whats the best pic host so you don't lose quality of the pic?

    Shoes and jeans don't work together. But shoes are amazing alone. And the rest is great with out those shoes. Also, anyone know Ann D sneaker sizing?

    sold these all white for $260, would ya look at that?




    I'm really having a hard time understanding the fact that other people look at someone flipping something they bought for a profit in a negative light. You all know examples of iPhones, video games, video systems etc. that people camp out for and instantly flip them. You snooze you lose.


    I'll have to side with dmash here; there is a sort of gentleman's agreement in a community and if links to sales get posted you don't buy all that shit and flip for a profit, you let actual wearers purchase their sizes.

    +1

    do it if you want, i guess -- it's not illegal or against the rules -- but don't be indignant when people think you're an asshole for doing it

    i don't agree with predatory buying/flipping that sometimes takes place--i think this is against the spirit of the forum--but the price being offered is not unreasonable either. hard to judge, but i'd wager a guess that had the yoox link not been posted reflecting the 180$ tag or whatever a lot more people would express interest at buying for > 220$ bnib

    Here are mine. I am getting different measurements from what is already on that list. I think the CP low numbers for 42 and 42 are wrong, as they are listed as the same length.

    Cp hi 43---30.5cm
    Cp low 43 ----30.5cm
    Rafstro 43---30.5cm
    Lanvin Hi uk9----30.6cm

    A question/suggestion about the Matrix, is it possible to freeze the panes for the top row so that when you scroll down you don't get lost in the sizes? It's more for convenience that anything but it is an improvement, I kind of get lost once I scroll down and all I see are measurement, I am not sure if the measurement I am looking at is a 41 or a 42, etc... I have to scroll all the way back up to figure it out.

    Yes I have often thought of how the buy and sell on this website provides a fitting metaphorical construct for Darwinism.

    Fucking lol.


    Not to mention social Darwinism is an entirely discredited theory...


    I once had a member message me about a pair of Dior jeans and I found them for him on sale for like $180 (these weren't raws) and sent them to him, he later flipped them on superfuture, not cool.

    I'm sure margiela or whatever will be along shortly to tell me how that's ok as we're economic agents and nothing else but I don't post sales anymore or hardly help out people with shit and I have access to a lot of them (get invited to privates sales, showroom samples, travel a lot etc).

    no thats not possible. the idea is you can simply click on an entry and you get a much better view.

    That's true, like I said, more a convenience thing. [​IMG]
