    Since when was Decarnin at a hospital/mental health facility?

    Also, looks like Marc Jacobs is getting closer to taking over Dior (womenswear). Seems like no one else wants to touch the brand

    I've been so good about sticking to the no kop spree all summer (okay, I bought a Siv Stoldal brooch/pin thing on a whim, but it was only $20), I think it's time I reward myself with some cluthinz

    Fuck I've had pretty bad luck with my clothing gambles lately. A blanc and noir sweatshirt i bought has sleeves that are 6+ inches too long. I'm 6'2" with proportional arms, who the fuck are they making this sweatshirt for? To top it off, the ribbing is loose as fuck so the sleeves live around my fingertips.

    When overpaying for a plain navy sweatshirt you expect better fabric and better design. I got neither.

    Sounds like you just bought a sweater in a style that you don't like. No way are the sleeves that long unintentionally.

    Blanc and noir is a copy-cat company of wings and horns. They are the furthest from avant garde imaginable

    wings and horns is known for having stupid long sleeves anyway. if they're copying it seems fit.

    No way you have proportional arms. I am 5'11", and I have good reach, but not that of a 6'2" man, closer to those of a 6' man, and the Blanc&Noir sleeves in a medium fit me. Similarly, the arms of a Calvin Klein collection suit fit nearly perfectly, MC style. You have shorter than average arms.

    I bought an XL, which fits well everywhere but the arms. I wear 36" dress shirts,which I think is pretty average for my height.

    I actually bought it because every other sweatshirt I have owned that has fit well in body had sleeves that were too short. Problem solved I guess.

    ETA: Measured the sleeve at 39.5". I'm going to hot wash and dry it which will hopefully take some length off.

    Perhaps all the obese chicks in Porkland cushioned the impact

    dunno
    so some pants I just bought from someone just had a crotch blow out, and even the seams in the back blew out...wtf.

    Should I just return it and ask for my money back? doesnt seem like the pants would hold up well even if I had them repaired...kinda ridiculous this happens to "lightly used for a summer" items.
