    Knowing it already passed through the hands of 3-4 owners really put me off.

    the video for some items is great

    The new animated thing they just did makes me wish I stayed in the private catholic high school that I loathed. I could handle a little isolation from girls and black people if the endgame is a prorsum overcoat and a crisp side part.

    hows that shit sized? 2 = US Small/36? I've been thinking of kopping some of that shitz.

    I don't know man they don't have too many Undercover stockists here at Hinterland U, I could help you size some A&F if you want.

    I'm a 46/36 and I have the same coat in small and it fits well with and without a jacket, you would have to want a dior homme fit and be really slim to wear the xsmall. Still my fav trench and I recently got it re-dyed.

    and measurements too, which i compared with some identical items i own and can confirm to be accurate. too bad they only show measurements for available (as opposed to all) sizes...

    you are at the peak, you will revert to caring a bit less about all that stuff down the line but in an educated way if that makes sense...in no way will you be back at square one

    i like imperfect fits like tees, jeans etc it's more interesting to me than stuff being super slim and tight

    Jet is right though, all the little things that are bothering you now will eventually fade. You'll grow tired of the idea of the "perfect fit" and might even find interest in anti-fit, proportion play, ect.

    I agree. A few years back I was obsessed with the fit of each individual piece, but over time I have learned to focus my attention more evenly to other areas. In the past when I would try on a shirt I would expect it to match my "ideal fit". Anything less than this ideal would be rejected. But I have come to realize that any fit (tight or loose) can look good if combined/styled with the right other pieces. Recently I bought the same shirt twice in 2 different sizes for this very reason! Think about the whole rather than evaluating each piece in isolation.

    lands end is OG though, founded in 63 or something. if anything, j crew ripped off lands end.
    Lands End is Ameri-trash for people who'll be dying soon (or are already dead). Go look at the products on their web site. Especially take a look at their women's jeans-- the majority are literally "mom jeans". Even JCrew is not this bad! The only offerings from Lands End that look like JCrew is their Canvas line. But Canvas is a new line-- JCrew has been doing this look for far longer! Thus while neither company is very original, Lands End is slow and behind the times. But dead people don't like change, so Lands End likely serves their customers well.

    While were on the topic, why the hell am I getting mailed Lands End and LL Bean catalogues? Is this someone's idea of a sick joke?
