Mind telling me what the leg opening is on these?
Per Greg's comment to my question on this, it was 8.4 inches on the 50 (and guessing pretty much the same on 48s). If I hemmed the inseam to no break they'd like a little wide for my taste, but I'm leaving them long and letting them pool for now. Also, I'm 5'9 -being taller will get you more length-to-width ratio, if that makes sense.

Will you merge orders for customers who ordered something this morning and find something else at 4?

Just want to preface this post by saying, I am new to this brand and just slowly getting into it and am in love with the story/fabrics/sustainability/color and just ordered a handful of things from Fall. But from what i've experienced so far, I'm a bit thrown off by the fits.

Plaid Explorer shirt, size medium. This fits near perfect, if even a bit on the loose side, which I like. Arms are relatively slim when compared to the body but nothing crazy. Overall love this piece.

Brown corduroy shirt, size large. This fits almost identical to the explorer shirt in a medium. Which is kind of odd. The arms seem a bit more forgiving but only by a small margin.

Quilted jacket, size medium. Love the fabric and the color. Fit is generous in the body but the sleeves are very slim. Almost too slim to fit a sweater underneath it, which is unfortunate. There's also a weird QC issue with the shoulder seam being stitched on and puffing outwards instead of being flush.

Navy corduroy blazer, size medium. Again, love the fabric here as it's a nice and substantial corduroy but the fit is just weird. Generous in the body/chest but the arms are cut so slim it constricts movement and there's no way to layer anything other than a thin shirt underneath. The proportions of this piece just seem to contradict each other as it's both too slim and too big.

Easy pants in brown corduroy, size 48. HUGE waist. I think the measurement on my pair is 17" and that is just laying flat. It's almost as if the elastic does nothing.

I'm normally a medium/48 in tops and 32 in bottoms and not particularly built or anything. 6'2" and 170lbs. So, pretty thin actually and I was surprised by how small and big some of the fits were and that was sometimes seen in the same item. Chest/body fits seemed very generous while the arm holes were cut higher and the arms tailored for those with very skinny arms (which, I thought I actually qualified for that).

I'll definitely keep checking stuff out from the brand but I hope I have some better luck in sizing in the future.
Interesting to read this!
I can agree to some extent. Actually I've experienced the armhole-issue, that is they've been to low. At my relaxed sports flannel jacket from aw 19 (?) I would say they are perfect. But in the tropical suit jacket from SS20 (I think, or maybe 19) they are lower. I've interpreted this matter as an ambition to create a relaxed look. I haven't experienced the arm being too small. Knits are perfect, so are pants, I believe.

Saw on Instagram there’s going to be an archive sale next week https://debonnefacture.fr/collections/archive-sale

GAAAH Today's hardest decision was not buying any of these amazing cotton suits. They're my size but I just realized I need one or two cm longer jackets than 73 cm to cover ******. Damn!
So happy though that I got a new chance to buy the squared japanese cotton shirt that I regret I didn't put my hands on a couple of years ago.

Hey thanks for the word guys, I didn't read Nicolas' post carefully enough, and didn't realise there would be more stuff released. Went round again and picked up a couple of pairs of pants and a lovely beige merino rollneck.

This lookbook landed at the best (worst) possible time. It’s been over 80 degrees this week in SoCal, and I am ready for all the of linen.
