    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Mostly pants/trousers and outerwear.
    Just don't know anything about the fit, but I'm assuming it's all pretty slim. Also, I usually don't care too much about "quality" (I always assume quality is decent and find that most differences are negligible) but when it comes to $600 pants I kind of want some assurance lol.

    what's the "one word name" thing about though? Like a company name or are people putting "bob" as their whole name?

    I'm near certain that this is in violation of eBay's TOS and that it wouldn't mean squat. The seller would certainly be able to refund the buyer's money and not ship the item, but eBay and PayPal would probably team up to make it hard for that seller to do business under that account or any other account created with the same e-mail address, mailing address, etc.

    I cant understand how someone like Kunk fits into fashion brands (like EG, insanely narrow shoulders in an XL). Slightly related, I just discovered the comfort of basic baggy long sleeve tee´s (ala Gildan) in XL. Makes me want to drop collared shirts.

    I have no idea, I just found the oddly specific destination restrictions amusing. My guess would be the seller has been burned by one-named people in those states before.

    I own quite a bit of Lanvin items so I hope I am qualified enough :)
    Most Lanvin fits a size big (Trousers, Shirts, Jackets). Lanvin often has skinny cut trousers, but of course depends on the model. Biker trousers (which they have each season) are very skinny, but usually require a size down for the waist.

    Quality is good to very good, but nothing really outstanding though. Most trousers will be made in Romania.

    I'm pretty sure that might be the most overtly racist eBay listing I've ever seen. He's got great prices but damn.

    IIRC the story as told in the Geller thread is that there's a repeat scammer from that area who has tried to nip him on several occasions

    I've got three pairs of Lanvin trousers (c2011-13) and there is no way I could size down on any of them.
    They fit TTS throughout, IME, and the cut is on the slim side if anything. For clarity, on all of mine the waist is 17.5-17.75 inches on a size 34.
    YMMV.

    I agree about the quality & price -- I haven't been disappointed by any of the Lanvin I've bought, but I probably would be if I paid MSRP for it. Their winter-weight and distinctive/embroidered/etc. trousers are creeping up to the $2000ish mark these last few seasons.

    yeah, this was the reason. synth, don't sell the Ann crow coat. i don't care if you don't wear it. and if you don't, why the hell not?

    anyone got good recs for a scarf in the $100-range that's warm and primarily black but not entirely black? can be new or from b&s/ebay/whatever. any suggestions are much appreciated.

    faliero on sale can be had for ~that, cashmere/wool/silk blends. and zam uses the same fabrics (his claim). if you wait a bit more you can find denis colomb which i feel is really nice. PoTN had some heavily discounted. i want the nepalese one, or something with yak in it, but i already have too many scarves i think.

    Pretty much this. And in the scheme of things, it's sorta low (i.e. not urgent, no one is going to flip out if not taken care of immediately) priority on a fairly long list. But it will happen.

    I can't actually change out the picture myself. I need to get someone at Wikia to do that, or maybe get specific instructions.

    Cheers,

    Fok.
