    Just picked up these Schneider pants from Frozen Waves, was worried about them being too small, but they fit perfectly

    I took a gamble on it. Figured I could layer under it (since I fit a 50 or an L generally) and be fine.

    edit: my first Schneider piece, so not really sure what to expect

    Thrifted Dior MIJ - The hems are a mess and I have no information on them, but they're a solid find. I'm probably going to sell them.

    Yeah...its going to be way too big. I'm 6'2", 220, usually 54 or 56, XL, and usually a Schneider VII in outerwear. The Merino size VII from NMWA felt really big.

    I think the general consensus on the merino is V = 40 so I wouldn't get too worried until you try it on. I'm a 38 and IV fits me great and I'd never recommend it for a 40.

    re: the merino

    You can't really compare sizes, just because a V fits one way doesn't mean the VI will fit a certain way. Sometimes all measurements go up or down sequentially, other times they don't.
    There might be 2" diff between an IV and V and only .5" difference between the V and VI.

    thats surprising to hear...Im a 54/slim 56 and would say the fit on the merino sz 7 is spot on, though a bit slim when buttoned w some layering.

    Yeah I have an esemplare fishtail for non-layering, but I was fully intending on wearing the Merino when I'm layering with a thick knit and a shirt under. Aka when it's incredibly cold out. We'll see how it fits, but I'm not too concerned.

    I hate January. I've gained weight from the gluttony of the holidays and the weather doesn't really motivate me to exercise. But it's the best time for sales and also getting inspired by Pitti Humo makes it fun to dress up during the dismal winter.

    In spirit of pitti and sale, my recent purchases are little luxuries for bargain prices inspired by pitti's fashion capitals.
