    weight is nice and light, but it retains heat well and is breathable. I have the kaftan in the same fabric- it feels like a nice fleece and has a charcoal color with a subtle twill texture.

    Is the black gabardine this season structured? Specifically looking @ pants. The midnight looks like it holds its shape pretty well - looking at a pair of carrots (they're really just straights) if I can find em, but the black gab looks like it's more flowy. That's great, but makes it a pain to try and fit over boots without the fabric constantly riding up. Maybe I should be looking for a cotton twill and/or a wool-poly blend?

    Just went on an impromptu Lemaire shopping spree at Nordstrom. Pieces at 75% off plus an additional 15% off.

    Picked up the following from A/W 16 (all prices in Cdn $):

    Spread collar shirt for $80
    Sweatshirt for $90
    Wool V-Neck Sweater for $180

    Nope, employees mostly cleaned it out. There was the white and black shirts with the pocket tagged at $97 - 15% off from $340 retail.

    Ok, I picked up that Maxi in the other thread (thanks @Dr Huh? !). That means the complex grey-green buttonless Kaftan I have is probably going to go since I wasn't quite satisfied with the fit - ended up not wearing it out. It's a 48 (size 3), if anyone is interested.

    Also there's a chance the Maxi is gonna be too big (46 better?) so...we'll see I guess.

    8 days until the FW17 show, pretty stoked

    Nice! I passed up on it because I wasn't sure about the material. I kind of preferred something more solid. Also thought the coat might be too long.

    Thoughts on this coat? With farfetch code it's <$500.

    I don't wear any Lemaire and I don't really go for the loose, laid back vibe. But I do want something to wear over a suit / heavy layers...

    It's nice. Is it made of Melton wool?

    What other items did you happen to see there? I'm assuming it was the Nordstrom in TO?

    @leeba In case you're not happy with the maxi and decide to let go of it, please pm me first. I hesitated due to customs tax (I'm based in Europe), but would welcome a second chance. Good luck with it, though

    If anyone wants to proxy for a Montrealer, holla. I'm a 48 and would be interested in knowing what's left in that size/price.
