That fw13 blazer that he scooped up from TRR is my absolute grail, but no way it fits me. When I saw it sold out I almost had a heart attack. Never thought I’d see it in the wild.

If anyone has it in size 3 and wants to part with it, hit me up ;)

Watch him return it to TRR if it doesn’t sell within the return window

@hayaoyamaneko I know right! It's a grail of mine too, I'm pretty sure the one he has would fit me, and if i saw it on TRR for what he's asking I would have bought it. But the fact that he's trying to profit off it so much is just too frustrating.

Anyone is familiar with lemaire silk blend trouser? Thinking to purchase the silk blend pleated belt trouser, but afraid it won’t age well (getting pulled easily?). Never had a silk trouser before. What’s the difference between the men and women version?

There’s no difference, they’re unisex.
the silk blend is very light and reasonably delicate.I have a bunch of the silk blend stuff but theyre all tops except for one pair of pants in that blend but haven’t worn them, I don’t think the belted pants would be lined.
But yeah, I don’t think they’d really age poorly in the sense of losing their shape or drape but I don’t think they’d be super durable.

Thanks! Last time I tried it, i remember it wasn’t lined. I was worried it won’t be durable as usual wool trouser. Is there any trouser this season that have the similar tailoring/cut to the belted pants?

Does anyone have both the great raincoat and the kaftan? Debating if I should get the great raincoat. I currently have a kaftan (cotton FW17 version) and because I'm vertically challenged, it's more like a maxi coat on me. How do the lengths of these two coats compare?

Great raincoat is longer, in general, but also depends on which Kaftan.
great raincoat would be longer than the FW17 cotton one though. Though those are both from the same season so let me d e m o n s t r a t e.
