    Well this shit happens often during fashion weeks, I mean you got something rented until 22hrs, it makes sense the next party would have to begin around that time.

    Just noticed my old APC baseball jacket is tagged both as a size 2 and a size 38. but it fits slimmer than anything else recent I have from there. It's also made in France. How old IS this thing?

    I've noticed APC sizing is poopy. I've had XS in some things that fit huge and others that fit me perfectly.

    Yeah I know their sizing can be inconsistent, but I was more referring to the fact that it wasn't labelled as a s/m/l but as a 2 (?) AND a 38, on the same garment. But fits like a 34. And is also made in France, and I can't remember the last time I saw something of theirs that was made there. I guess around the time I bought this.

    I think I finally have to break down and buy an iron and ironing board. Damn you, BoO and your uncooperative back pleats. :plain:

    I have some of the old pieces (or had) that were sized 1/2/3/4/etc.. Made in France isn't very common for the new stuff though, AFAIK.

    Don't care about the Lanvins, is that the new NSX?

    The hem is also pretty stubborn. Never enough for me to bring out that abomination sitting in my closet though

    If you're only ironing band shirts and you don't want to have an ironing board taking up space in your house, you can press the shirts over a large piece of cardboard on a flat surface. Still have to buy an iron though, no ghettofix for that.

    I'm going to go home and try ironing my shirts with a spray bottle and the bottom of a hot stainless steel skillet.
