I feel like her pants are all cut with a short rise amirong?

Can't believe I didn't see this thread thanks for the heads up zis.

I've been trying so hard to like this line for the past few years but something is always off for me.
Not a big fan of slim fitting pants or short rises either but I have a pair of the 2 pleat 'wide trousers' that I really like.The size 50 2 pleats have a ~11.5" front rise.

Yeah most pairs are short rise, ~9.5 - 10.5" on a 50/52 which kills a lot of it for me.
But there are a few that have higher rises now too.

The cream canvas joints for fall are high rise

thanks gaiz i wuz lookin at the site before i stumbled upon this thread and did like the 2 pleat chocolate cords but i was worried about the rise

another concern of mine is the frumpiness by the looks of them, seems the pants are either fitted or frumpy

looking at the knits from certain angles it appears the shoulders and arm scye area are for skinny french models

^ might depend on the knit, I tried on the Shetland wool mock neck from last winter at their private sale last weekend; was on the roomier side

Thanks @DBF Gerald !
Any chance you know the model?
Would it be these?

And regarding the Gardian boots, do they fit true to size? Ie/ US12 = 45 ?
Thanks

Regarding the paraboots, yes the Chamfort looks to be the correct ones. As for the Gardian boots, not sure on that! True to size is also pretty relative in my experience. What sizes do you wear in other shoes?
