Here are some pics of the jumper in M (6 feet, 46 usual size in pants), first foray into oversized fits so I'm not sure whether to size down or not, feels like it dwarfs me a little too much/I'd still get enough flow with the small (belt is cinched almost all the way).

I mean, it looks cool in the pics, but definitely oversized in a statement kind of way. Maybe worth trying a size down to compare?

Ya, I may as well try the small and see how big a difference it is, I'll update the thread when it comes in.

I honestly think that’s pretty ideal. Sleeves seem perfect. Waist is where it should be.
Every jump suit I’ve had has been similar to that.

Also seeing it styled at dpto I feel like that’s the way to do it and it’s definitely a lot bigger on him. He should size down.

Ya, I think I may stand pat, lower half felt too roomy/parachute-like at first, but I'm coming from a decade of wearing 501s so I think I was feeling the contrast more than what the pictures indicate.

Does anyone remember when the ssense sale started last year? Is it usually mid May?

Yeah. I think it looks good but it obv doesn’t hurt to try the small. I’d assume there’s not a whole lot of difference so it will probably give the same vibe with just a bit less volume.
at The end of the day you have to be comfortable wearing it

Ended up returning the M, took it for a few strolls up and down the hallway and it was too MC hammer below the waist.

Standing pat for now, with sales around the corner I figure I'll hold out and reevaluate then. (Love the blouse, wrapover, and officer shirts as well)

Has anybody here tried the 4-pleat or the 2-pleats belted trousers from this season?
They both ran a bit small in the waist last season, but based on measurements the current season seems to be corrected and true to size now (17.5” waist on a 50 instead of 16.25” last season).
If anybody can confirm that would be dope. Thanks.

I can speak to the 2-pleats this season; I have with me a 50 that measure 16.5" in the waist. I also ordered the 48 only to end up exchanging for the 50 because the 48's ran 15.5" in the waist. Hope this helps.
