    Pair them with a crisp shirt and suit jacket with your f+b boots. Sure to be a hit at the wedding reception! :satisfied:

    I hope you're right. I'm a cyclists so I have pretty small arms tbh.

    Balenciaga coat arrived today. Bought a melange charcoal Calvin Klein Collection suit off of Yoox for dirt cheap ($190). Will come in useful for my son's baptism.

    So how's that coat (and how's the sizing) ? I found it in my regular size at some other store but knowing Balenciaga I'd probably need to size up.

    edit: nvm, saw your post in RFT

    I was looking at those Calvin Klein suits. Did they arrive already or did you just order them? If you got them already, how's the cut?

    How'd you size the suit? I'm in need of a new one and those look pretty good, especially for the marked down price.

    Well, I'll answer anyway. A 50Eu is my size in many of the smaller sized brands. In MMM, I am between a 48 and a 50. I'd say that you would probably want a size 54, ideally, based on the differences between our sizes on that one Schneider jacket, but that a 52 might fit, depending on how big your arms are. Ideally, there would be about 1 cm. extra on the arms to fit me perfectly. I wore it with a tee, and the arms are perfect. With a thin Margiela sweatshirt, the arms were sort of tight. I may see if the arms can be let out a fraction of an inch, though that may not be possible. The arms are definitely slim, though not slim like Stephan Schneider's blazers (seriously, you have to stop working out altogether to fit into those.

    I took my usual size in Calvin Klein, which is a 50Eu.

    The shoulders fit me fine. The arms are definitely not for anyone who might be mistaken for a Jersey Shores cast member.
